Airbnb Review-April 2023

Beautiful put together and comfortable home in quaint Guerneville. Great spot to explore the more rustic, less “packaged” part of wine country (exactly what we were looking for). Great day trips to Ft Ross (spectacular drive on Hwy 1), Armstrong Preserve giant redwoods and some amazing wineries in Russian River AVA (check out Armida and Gary Farrel - you won’t be disappointed). The immediate neighborhood is going through a transformation with a mix of renovated homes and folks who’ve been living there for many many years. Overall a wonderful spot if you want to truly explore the diversity of Sonoma county.

Absolutely Zen was such a beautifully decorated clean home, hard wood floors, a cozy open living space, kitchen with all that we needed (great knives, pans, coffee maker), and windows to view lush landscape all around the house. Very quiet neighborhood. We had our small dog and enjoyed taking her for walks every morning amongst the towering redwoods - couldn't have been more IN nature. Very conveniently located to Guernville shops & Safeway and about 30 minutes to the beautiful coast for views, teen photo opps and hiking; loved sitting at Aquatica Cafe in Jenner! Enjoyed my cake, presents. and time with my family here, as we ride out what is hopefully the end of Covid days. The hosts made check in/out efficient and easy, reached out to check on our comfort and responded quickly to any questions we had. Would stay here again in a heart beat!

We booked Absolutely Zen on a short notice and it turned out to be so beautiful and exactly what we were looking for in terms of Redwoods EVERYWHERE! It’s also a well-maintained, clean, modern home with a cozy feel. It’s also accessible to Armstrong National Park, which we came to visit. And to vineyards and wineries for those interested. The kitchen has plenty of appliances, which was important to us for cooking. Close to no service but great wifi. Great beds, large space. Thank you, Stace!

We had a wonderfully relaxing stay at Stace's beautiful home! It was clean, cozy, and had everything we needed for our week away. The house is situated in a gorgeous forest off the main road and we appreciated the quiet serenity of the surroundings and the grounding nature of all those redwoods. We enjoyed a hike in Armstrong Reserve and a stroll on the bluffs near Shell Beach. I love Guerneville's proximity to the ocean. Stace and the team at Wine Country to Coast Vacation Rentals were very responsive and helpful. Thanks for helping to make it a lovely getaway!

Stace's house is such a delight in the redwood forest. As the description indicates, it is a mile or so from the party town of Guerneville, but world's away. The house is located on a narrow, slightly winding road with closely spaced residences lining the steeply sloped forested roadway. You may need to pull over on occasion to allow an approaching car to pass.The driveway can accommodate 2 sedans, but 2 large trucks or SUVs would be tight.The house is built on two levels, with the living area accessed by climbing 17 exterior steps. The front door opens into a large living, dining, kitchen area comfortably furnished with seating and dining options for the 4 allowable guests. The kitchen is well-equipped with nice appliances and utensils.Both bedrooms have French doors that open onto the rear patio. The beds are comfortable, linens nice.The house was a perfect weekend getaway for 2 couples. It was nicely located for a day trip to Sonoma, as well as a walking tour of Healdsburg.

This house is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood , right of the main hwy where you are mins away to the grocery store, bakery, and cafes. The river and beach are also a short drive away. The house is comfortable and spacious for 4 people. Our family did an extended remote working stay and we the wifi was fast and reliable (not always the case in the area). Our teen and kid loved the game room and all the tv network options. My favorite place was the kitchen which is well equipped with everything you need to cook/bake. Great place!

This cozy home is nestled by trees. It is furnished with just about everything you will need. The property manager/owner was very kind to leave us with stuff we may have needed to make our Thanksgiving dinner perfect. House is very clean and though the parking is a bit cramped, it still perfect for just 2 cars. We spend Thanksgiving in different locations, in different states, and this home for sure will be a home we will return to.

I’ve stayed at many rentals in the Russian River Valley over the years and this was, by far, the best experience I’ve had. The property was clean and well-maintained, everything was in order, and the staff were an absolute delight to work with. There was a power outage during my stay and the rental company reached out by text message to inform us of the utility company’s estimated time of restoration and to make sure we knew where to find the lanterns in the house in the meanwhile.

This place really delivered what we needed. Rest and relaxation. Couldn’t get the garbage disposal to work and they were right on it —- even though it was Christmas Eve. Needed a new one and Bill went and got one and installed right away. Will definitely be coming back in the spring

Spacious “tree house” in the woods

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. My husband and I needed to get out of town for a week so came here to work as well as enjoy the area in the evenings and on the weekends. From a work standpoint there was plenty of room at the big dining table plus a cute desk in the corner. Wi-Fi was great - no problems with us both being on video conferences at the same time plus we brought out fire stick to stream video. The house was spacious with plenty of room for us and our dogs. Loved the great room with the modern kitchen, wood burning fireplace and big comfy furniture. Yes, the house across the street is a bit of a bummer, but the rest of the neighborhood is super cute and the locals are really nice. In the evenings we took the 7 mins drive to one of the river beaches or 25 mins to the coastal beaches to walk the dogs, which was so nice.

We spent a week here and were perfectly comfortable. Spacious and clean with good hot water and a very "interesting" house across the street to speculate about. The entry lockset is rather funky, but works OK once you get used to it. I wasn't able to get the TV to work, but the 20 something kids didn't seem to have any trouble. Overall recommendation is very positive.

Manager's Response

Hi Steven! The "Dracula House" is indeed a great conversation piece, isn't it?! If you ever do have any issues with amenities, please let us know and we are happy to help out. Absolute Zen is a beautiful, comfortable home in the woods and we're so glad you enjoyed it!

We enjoyed a wonderful stay with friends at Absolute Zen! The house was very clean and had all of the amenities we needed for a relaxing vacation. The central location allowed for easy drives to enjoy the redwood forests, coastal views, and wine tastings at the vineyards. Also close to several, quaint towns with awesome restaurants. The owners were very communicative and responsive to any of our questions or needs. Would definitely stay here again!

We had a wonderful stay at Absolute Zen. My husband and another couple all stayed here very comfortably. We come up and rent a house in Guerneville every Summer, so it was nice to be here in the Spring without the crowds. <br/>The house was the perfect amount of space for the 4 of us plus our two dogs. Everything was spotless, the beds were comfy, the furniture and the kitchen/living room layout was very inviting. We cooked dinner both nights and enjoyed playing board games at the dining room table. The kitchen had everything we needed and even had a gas stove which is rare in Guerneville!<br/>We appreciated the welcome goodies and the clear directions/info/recommendations in the supplied binder. The roads around the house were great for walking the dogs and breathing in some fresh air surrounded by redwoods. You are very close to the main street of Guerneville (I think about a 6 min drive) and also if you want some ocean air that is a quick drive also(approx 20 min). We enjoyed visiting Jenner and walking the dogs at Goat Rock Beach (where they filmed the final scene of Goonies!)and stopping in Duncan Mills for some coffee and pastries. <br/>Russian River really is a magical place and this house was exactly what we needed for our weekend getaway. This is the perfect spot to come and unwind and enjoy all that wine country has to offer.

We had a wonderfully relaxing stay at Absolute Zen! It was clean, cozy, and had everything we needed for our week away. The house is situated in a gorgeous forest off the main road and we appreciated the quiet serenity of the surroundings and the grounding nature of all those redwoods. We enjoyed a hike in Armstrong Reserve and a stroll on the bluffs near Shell Beach. I love Guerneville's proximity to the ocean. Stace and the team at Wine Country to Coast Vacation Rentals were very responsive and helpful. Thanks for helping to make it a lovely getaway!

Absolute Zen is the perfect name for this home. We spent 8 nights in zen. <br/><br/>Guerneville is incredibly peaceful but the neighborhood this home is in is charming AND peaceful. Adorable cottages and cabins are dotted in between the towering redwoods. Ferns and greenery surrounds everything. It's simply beautiful!<br/><br/>Absolute Zen is a hidden oasis. It's a clean and updated property combined with comfort and forced relaxation. It's incredibly quiet.<br/><br/>We easily found the home and following the instructions located the key. We walked into the home to find a gift basket filled with treats for us (we were starving so thank you!) and our dog, Orzo! The owner has spent the time to create a binder with information not only on the house but the area in general.<br/><br/>The kitchen was open and modern and stocked with everything you could need. The wi-fi was super fast and very strong (thank you!). The TV and cable was great. The back deck is beautiful! You have a private area to just "zen" out with the birds singing all around you.<br/><br/>Our dog was thrilled to be able to plop down on the front deck and watch the wildlife. We saw some beautiful deer wandering about!<br/><br/>I would absolutely come back to Absolute Zen in a heartbeat. It was just what we needed!

Our stay here was just the peaceful break we needed in the midst of moving homes. This house is truly tucked away in a different world amongst the towering redwoods. <br/>The living space was fantastic and the updated kitchen had everything we needed to make this stay feel like home. The wood stove was perfect on the chilly rainy Sunday with a TV perfect for watching the football games. The bedrooms have a lovely view of the forest behind and each room has a very comforting, quiet feel. <br/>The ping pong table in the garage was a fun activity as well! <br/>Definitely recommend for a peaceful stay where you are looking to spend a lot of time in the home.

The house was beautiful. Didn’t realize it was in such a heavenly condensed neighborhood but that wouldn’t stop me from staying there again. The only suggestion is working on backyard to make it a little safer. The incline was very steep and the block stairway up the hill see,Ed to need a little work. Since it is a pet friendly home I would work on the fencing.there seems to be a lot of areas especially close to decking where a small dog could escape down under house. Our dogs were never left unsupervised outside but our little Yorkie who fancies herself a greater hunter did get down under deck at one point.
