This newly renovated home is located on Long Island just off of Grand Island in the Sacramento River Delta. There are 3 queen bedrooms and 2 baths on two levels overlooking the river. In addition, there is a sleeper sofa for overflow for total sleeping space for 8. For the warm summer, an outdoor shower is privately located just under the main deck. Well behaved family pets are welcome, although the yard is not fenced. TV, satellite and wi-fi are available along with hundreds of VHS tapes and DVDs. The house has private docks both on the river and in back on the slough (or the dredge cut as it's known), so boat in or put the boat in the water at one of several nearby launch ramps. Fish off the docks or relax on the covered deck while watching the local skiers and fishermen work the water out front. Wood fire pit and comfortable outdoor furniture allows our guests to fully enjoy the weather at any time of year. There is an office set up in the lower bedroom, just in case you need to keep in touch while you're away.
We bought this house as a fishing shack and to have a berth for our 32' Erickson sailboat and have remodeled extensively in the years since. In fact, we lived in this house while reworking the house next door --where we live today. We are boaters who enjoy all the Delta has to offer and this house puts you so close to the water, you'll never want to leave. At least that was our story and why we moved from Sacramento. We are also active private pilots and involved in Sacramento real estate.
Martha Pearson purchased this house in 1996
Life is just better on the water --and you can't get any closer than this. The view, the immediate access to the water activities we enjoyed were why we chose this place to call home. If you don't do anything but sit and enjoy the view of the river, you'll be entertained by the water skiers and island is qient and charming with really nice neighbors. This kitchen in this house is a dream and stocked well with good quality appliances, dishes and cookware. If you're looking to cook up a few fancy meals while you're with us and wonder about specific items, just ask and we'll see what we can do to accommodate. We always stock the basics but include coffee, tea, spices, foil and plastic wrap as well. There is usually something edible in the yard --the Delta is known for it's lush abundance, and this property is no exception. We encourage our guests to take advantage of what we grow which will obviously change with the seasons.
Being on the water with your own dock means that you can take a quick water ski run, or fish a little then relax a while only to do it again without the hassle of taking the boat in and out of the water. The Delta is beautiful and this location is convenient to the Grand Island Mansion and the Ryde Hotel, both wonderful wedding venues. Isleton is about two miles and Walnut Grove about 10 miles. Delta fishing is awesome and this is great water for skiing -- right out front. From either of the two decks overlooking the water, the line between inside and out is deliberately blurred so you're encouraged to spend the days with the doors wide open to the great Delta weather. For cooler months, there is a cozy gas fireplace and heated floors to make things comfortable.
We had a great vacation/writing retreat renting this house in the Delta. For me this was a much better VRBO experience than my previous two rentals in Mendocino. Renting this house was more like a home exchange with a friend or family member. The house is beautiful, clean, and has a modern, well equipped kitchen with quality products. The home was well-stocked with paper goods, supplies for bathrooms, and really nice towels, sheets, placemats, napkins, and more. The owner is very nice and available when needed. I definitely recommend this home and this is a place I plan to return. Thanks, Martha!
The five of us who gathered here had grown up on the river in nearby Rio Vista and Ryer Island so this was the perfect place to meet again to talk and laugh and remember the good old days. There was enough private space for all of us and it had all the comforts of home. The kitchen had everything we needed so we were able to have all of our meals here. There are things to do nearby, places to eat and wineries too but it was just so nice to stay on the Island for two nights to relax and reconnect. The peace and quiet, along with the river view, can't be beat and it seems a world away from our everyday lives. Sitting on the deck while the sun set was awesome. In short, it is a "Great Escape." We would recommend it highly. Thanks Martha!!
We loved this place. Celebrated daughter's 50th birthday and had a wonderful weekend. 6 Adults and 2 grandchildren. Home is well equipped and nice location for relaxing on the river. Can't wait to come back
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this well appointed beautiful home, it was so relaxing, location was exceptional! Would come back here again!
Read all the previous reviews because they say it all. This is such a nice place to enjoy a relaxing getaway in a beautiful setting overlooking the water. The attention to details and comfort make this an ideal choice for young and old. Inside everything is well appointed and cared for. We loved docking our boats in front of the house, swimming off the dock, the gardens and slough in the back, the marvelous river view deck-- to name a few things outside. The owners are wonderful.
Located in the heart of the Sacramento River Delta, this home is located on an island between the levy banks in the Sacramento River. It is an ideal spot for families to relax and enjoy all the outdoor water sports that are so enjoyable in the Delta. Relaxing days spent fishing, water skiing, swimming and floating are all waiting for you. We are located about 35 miles south of Sacramento, 32 miles northwest of Stockton and 32 miles east of Fairfield.Watch the sunset of the river from either of the two decks on the house.
