My friends and I had a marvelous time at the Double-R Retreat this past weekend. The spacious, well-decorated, comfortable and light-filled home was a delight. I don't think there was an amenity that we would have wanted that was not available. We were pleasantly surprised to find WiFi and high speed internet, since it wasn't mentioned in the listing. The kitchen was well-stocked and included any kitchen gadget we might dream of. The property was lovely and we enjoyed a short hike to old growth redwoods. Bruce, the owner, gave a great orientation and was, in every way, the consummate host. We certainly will recommend the property to anyone looking for something along those lines in the area. I did mention to Bruce that the cover photo of the beach was slightly misleading. Although it is a quick jaunt to the ocean, it cannot actually be seen from the property (unless 20 or so stories are added to the house).

The house was not clean when we arrived and many items were in the process of being repaired. It was essentially impossible to reach the manager, who is out of state, and neither he nor the owner were available to work toward resolving problems. All issues were referred to a handyman who lived 45 minutes away. For the very high price we paid per night, we expected much more satisfying"customer service".

Response from Bruce:
Unfortunately, our cleaning person didn't clean the house after the last guest which is a rare oversight. We corrected the problem promptly once we were aware of the issue. All of the issues that were not functional during the guests stay were repaired during their stay with the exception of the water supply to the refrigerator which was schedule for repair the following week. We discounted the guests fees to compensate for some of these issues and we will continue to improve our customer service for our future guest's enjoyment.

I was met on location and given a tour of the grounds. This place was simply incredible. Well secluded, relatively close to two airports, huge, with an extravagant deck with a ridiculous view. It was so nice, I didn't want to leave. The kitchen was beautiful with top notch cutlery and the grills and smoker were all perfect. Ping pong was a hit. 10/10

This listing was perfect in every way, right down to the fresh flowers when we arrived. Fantastic house for a get away to the woods. Plenty of redwood and a great deck to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature. We had a great time at the house (10 of us) fit perfect. Great fully stocked kitchen. Highly recommend and we will rent again for sure

We have as a family and myself individually stayed at over 25 Airbnb properties without ever having stayed anywhere less than wonderful and would have to say Bruce's place is nothing short of spectacular.. A gorgeous tranquil setting deep in the redwoods but within 20 min or so from all the provisions, entertainment, and things to do that are all unique to the area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Bruce's both hospitality and attention to our comfort was not just welcomed but greatly appreciated. I/we have nothing but glowing memories of our stay and would recommend this property to anyone looking for a spacious quiet yet modern and convenient getaway or retreat. Thank you for all you gave us!!!

We are a high-tech executive family that loves trees and quiet places surrounded by nature's beauty. All of our properties listed are for our private use and are not full time rental properties. We believe in the sharing economy and share our properties discretely with guests that we believe will take care of the properties like we take care of them ourselves.. We take meticulous care of our properties -you and your guests can expect to find a clean and functional property that is well maintained in a beautiful natural habitat. We will be listing our Texas Ranch Guest house early in 2015.
