About your Hosts: JIM and KATHY OCEAN


We're musicians and concert producers who decided to share our little piece of paradise--which we named "RiverSea"--after landing in Guerneville the summer of 2004.

When we met, we lived between Jim's houseboat in the Martinez Marina and Kathy's yurt in the Sierra Foothills near Nevada City.  Before moving to Guerneville, we sold the houseboat and turned the yurt property into a long-term rental. Having discovered how much we enjoy the vacation rental biz, we decided in 2013 to "reclaim" the yurt for ourselves and fellow vacation rental adventurers. (Don't be surprised to see a houseboat in our future vacation rental offerings, as we both miss being rocked to sleep and waking to the sound of quacking ducks.)

We consider ourselves very lucky to be in the position of meeting wonderful people from all over the world. We take great pleasure in sharing our homes and creating spaces where people like you can relax, explore and recharge.

Feel free to contact us with questions at 707-869-9403 or by email at

Thanks for taking the time to explore our virtual space,
Kathy and Jim
