House: Conveniently located about five minutes to the Sequoia Park entrance and nearby local stores and restaurants. The house is immaculate. Furniture layout was spacious and comfortable. Kitchen had mostly new cookware. The view from two of the three rooms, kitchen, and living room had a good picture of the river. Just open the windows for that therapeutic sound. Central air worked perfectly during the winter weather. The deck chairs and bistro set on the deck were plenty for a happy hour session. Though we did not use the grill, it looked clean and probably a newer model. I also noticed a propane tank in the garage. The exterior of the house blended with the surrounding and the seating areas on the house level and river level were properly placed. In the mornings, we'd see a herd of deers cross the river from the hillside. The steps leading to the river were not steep, and the kids had no problem walking down. Grounds were really clean.
Owners: Probably the most informative and thorough hosts I have ever encountered, and I've had a few. A welcome text with all the info you'll need as far as not only check in procedure, but the local interests for activities, stores, and restaurants providing yelp screenshots. Very prompt to answer any inquiries.
Overall a great experience with this rental. The house, its location, the amenities, the views and sounds, and the owners are fiive-six stars worthy.
