Interaction with guests

I am available if you need me, if you have any problems or questions, but little to no interaction is fine too, I want you to enjoy yourself. Tallulah's Shack includes reliable key-less entry. I won't be present during your visit, but my awesome property manager, Richard, will handle all logistics necessary to ensure you have a smooth and relaxing arrival to the house. He's available 24/7 in case anything should occur during your stay, and I am available for emergencies as well.

Other things to note

*Tallulah's Shack has private contractors that help maintain the beauty of the house and grounds. Every Wednesday the gardener and our savvy spa guy visit and service amenities. They will do their best not to disturb you and we appreciate your understanding to help keep Tallulah's up running for all guests.

*Cell phone access in the Russian River is spotty at best; Verizon seems to work most consistently, while AT&T/T-Mobile/Sprint have very poor service. I provide wifi in the house and you may be able to still make and receive calls using wifi calling, if your phone and network provider support this feature.

*Tallulah's Shack sits amongst the woods - it's not uncommon to encounter a bug or two during your stay. The Phantom Screens help keep the bugs out and the breeze in, however, please be careful as they are hard to see and have the potential to be walked into.

*Tallulah's has security monitors located on the outside of the house. These have been installed to maintain safety and security at Tallulah's. If you have any questions regarding the location of the cameras please feel free to contact me.

*Tallulah's Shack Airbnb prices include a 12% Transient Occupancy Tax so a stay costs $350 + 12%.

Please let me know if you have any questions regarding this tax.

Hello Jason, Thanks for reaching out. My wife and I are on our honeymoon in Cabo, I haven't had cell phone reception. I wish I could do this in a conversation but here goes: Regarding our experience staying with Amy. I want to clarify my original booking was not through Amy but through the prior owners of the property, Maayan and Annie. They are true dog lover's, they were very accommodating when I told them I will be bringing three or four dogs for our wedding weekend. Because it was our wedding and they are dog lovers they were very open and very accommodating. I booked this back in March, long before the wedding as this is a very important day. I also want to give you a little background that Maayan and Annie were very familiar with. Lisa and I are very special "dog handlers" we run a business called Z Animal Lover in Concord, California. We walk between 40 and 50 dogs a day between the two of us in large pack settings. I walk 20 dogs at a time on average. We are notoriously known across the globe in the dog world. Many of Cesar Milan's apprentices have traveled across the globe to train under us as well. Lisa recently broke the Guinness Book of World Records for walking the most dogs. It was unofficial but her video is viral with almost 40 million views. (URL HIDDEN) This is all background information so that you understand our situation. Our wedding is the most important day of our lives, I was very selective when I chose to stay at Tallulah's Shack under Maayan and Annie, they had the best reviews! Our reservation was transferred to Amy after she apparently purchased the property. My first conversation with Amy was not positive, she was not accommodating but it was our wedding and it was a booking that we had already set up not through her. And this happened just a couple months ago so there weren't many other options available. I mentioned to Amy that we had discussed terms with the previous owners that we would be bringing three or four dogs depending on my mother-in-laws situation with her additional dog. Amy was very rude on the phone when I initially spoke with her months ago which made me a little nervous because there was no warmth at all, she was basically saying that she would let us do it but I could tell she was not happy ( she even insinuated that she didn't care it was our wedding, it was much more concerned about "her" property) In the end she did say she would accommodate us but it left a bad taste in my mouth. By the way I'm not happy I'm having to deal with this on my honeymoon. When we showed up at the property we had Lisa's maid of honor with us who stayed the first night and helped us prep for the wedding. The unit...

My husband and I had a wonderful time at Tallulahs Shack with our doggies, Eden and Toes. The kitchen is fully equipped and the atmosphere inside and out is relaxed, comfy, and user friendly. We loved the 2 outdoor patios (beautifully decorated) and the peacefulness and privacy of the home. Amy was a great hostess. She provided thoughtful added touches throughout the house that anticipated all our needs. We look forward to a future visit among the Redwoods at the Shack. What a great find!!

Amy's cottage, Talkulah's Shack was ideal for our girl's getaway. It was spacious, clean, quiet and a lovely place to laugh, cook, play games, stargaze and talk late into the night. Amy was the perfect host and communication was super!

We LOVED staying at Amy's for three nights over my birthday as a quick getaway from San Francisco. The house easily fit myself, my husband, our 4-year-old, our 7-month-old, and our black lab. The house is beautiful and comfortable. The kitchen has everything that you need, and there were all the conveniences of home like a washer and dryer, cable and HBO, wifi, etc. The small details help to stand this place a part, as well: coffee stocked, a poloroid camera with film to capture the vacation, a very sincere welcome note from Amy... The best part, by far, is the back deck. We spent a lot of time back there relaxing, eating meals, and hanging out in the hot tub. One day our 4-year-old insisted on getting in on four different occasions! Amy was very communicative and a wonderful host. We will be definitely coming back!
