The space

We don't live in a mansion, just a comfortable, cozy, clean home surrounded by many beautiful trees. The bedroom looks out onto majestic oak and cottonwood trees and is directly across the hall from the guest bathroom. The room has a flat screen TV on which you can watch HBO, Netflix, Amazon and a variety of other channels. You can also listen to Pandora and other music channels.

Guest access

You are free to use the kitchen, living room and dining area and furnished outdoor patio and yard.

Interaction with guests

We really enjoy meeting new people and will be happy to offer you a glass of wine and chat with you, but we are happy to give you as much privacy and time alone as you would like. We are very familiar with the attractions of the Sonoma Valley, as well as the entire Bay Area, and enjoy sharing our knowledge. John is also a tour guide in the wine country and the San Francisco area, so he can point you in the right direction. Ask about his private chauffeured tours at rates far below those offered elsewhere, which include complimentary wine tastings at area wineries.

Getting around

It's a 30 minute walk, or 5 minute drive to the center of Sonoma. Buses to Petaluma and Santa Rosa are within walking distance.

Other things to note

We provide you with coffee, tea, cereal and bagels or pastries in the morning.

John and Merian were lovely hosts. They greeted my husband and me with a bottle of wine and cheese to share with them. It was great opportunity to get to know them and learn more about Sonoma/all the local spots. The house was clean and they offered us breakfast each morning. Would certainly recommend. Thank you, John and Merian!

My wife and I were in Sonoma for our first time for a friend's wedding and we stayed with John and Merrian; their generosity and hospitality really added to our experience. They are gracious hosts, easy to be around but not overbearing. Their house was clean, charming, and in a great location. And while most of our time was tied up with wedding festivities, their knowledge of the area helped us to make the most of the remaining time. Highly recommended! Thank you John and Merian.

Best Airbnb in Northern California. Most incredibly gracious hosts. Was a true Airbnb experience, staying in such a lovely family's home. Wifi and smart tv in room. Nicest couple. Stop looking and stay with these guys :)

We were in Sonoma for birthday and anniversary celebrations and found John & Merian's place ideal for our comings and goings. Clean, quiet, firm comfortable bed, and bath located directly across the hall. Terrific hosts. We had opportunity to talk with John & Merian one morning and enjoyed getting to know them. You will, too.

We really enjoyed staying in home of John and Merian for three nights. This was our first visit in Sonoma and we got good tips for our vacation. John took us also to the wine tour which was really nice! Home was really clean, good breakfast and hosts were easy to reach. We will definitely recommend this place to Sonoma visit!

We are a very friendly couple who live happily in Sonoma with our friendly and quiet Shih-Tzu dog. We go to work in a neighboring county during the week. John is a Social Worker and Merian works as a Property Manager . We love Sonoma and will be happy to show you around or help you decide where to go, but we will also respect your privacy and leave you free to relax in our home. We have travelled extensively within the United States and abroad, and enjoy experiencing different cultures. Our 22 year old son Pio may be staying with us, but he is almost always out, so guests rarely see him.
