Amazing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the most immaculate, well-kept place that we have ever stayed. The grounds are gorgeous! We felt that we had our own private resort, with the swimming pool and beautiful porch and patio. The kitchen was well stocked and the beds were very comfortable. if we ever visit Garberville again, this is the place we would stay without a doubt!

Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5

Stop your search. This place is awesome. My wife and I, two friends and 3 dogs, stayed here over a 3 day weekend. One week prior to this stay, my wife and I were at the Four Seasons Resort on Maui. No kidding. We decided that the only difference was that we had to make our own drinks by the pool. Stop your search now. This place is awesome. Completely worth the drive from San Francisco. We will be back.

Great time!

We rented this home to stay in while we were visiting for the weekend to run a marathon. The home is beautiful! Very clean, comfortable and the grounds are amazing. We had a wonderful weekend.

Wonderful Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed there for a family wedding. It was the perfect place to be together. Seven of us stayed there and others came to share meals. The home is lovely and everything you need is there. We would definitely do it again!

Great home

  • 5 of 5

The home was well stocked and perfect for our group. We had all three bedrooms full and the rest of our group stayed at the Benbow Inn, an easy 3 minute drive. The proximity made an easy transition to breakfast for our group plus dinner and drinks at the inn. The owner welcomed us upon check in and was more than accommodating. The kitchen and grand living room were great for socializing. The garden and pool is a nice relaxing option on a warm day. I'd go back in a heart beat.

Amazing property, host, amenities, location. We literally wanted for nothing. Daryl was hospitable, knowledgeable of the area and a gracious host. The grounds and gardens are incredible. We enjoyed fresh picked fruits and vegetables throughout our stay. Kitchen is appointed with everything you need to enjoy the local food & wine of the area. Booked here twice in one month and would highly recommend to anyone. In fact, already planning a future stay with my parents ;)
