Forestville, Sonoma County, California
This gorgeous property is located right on the Russian River (1 hour drive from Golden Gate Bridge) and is very close to legendary wineries, redwoods and Sonoma coast beaches. The property has a REAL BEACH (sand and pebbles) which is quite rare for the Russian River. Also very rare: The property is large, private, very sunny (and mostly bug-free); The house has real character, warmth, simplicity and style. It is small and cozy (but has a gourmet kitchen and a huge tile shower). The neighborhood and locals are funky/colorful/eccentric, which is not rare at all around here.

Thanks Jay for sharing your wonderful home with us last week. We so enjoyed the hot tub at night and the peace and quiet of the area you are situated in. We had some great day trips to the Armstrong redwood forest as well as Bodega Bay. Didn't take advantage of the well stocked kitchen as I was on vacation...

This beach house boasts a private setting, serene beach, river views along with fully equipped kitchen and living areas - inside and outside. It delivers and more! The touch of the owner is found throughout the property and we enjoyed our time there and would book again. This booking is perfect for a couple or two friends. Many nearby places...

We first visited Jay's wonderful place in the summer of 2015 and liked it so much we booked it for twice as long the following year. This place has everything you could possibly want in a river home: private beach, canoe, kayaks, hot tub, gas bbq, comfy bed, two decks, wifi, fruit trees, tomatoes, the property is large and there...
