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 has been a tour guide in the wine country and the San Francisco area, so he can point you in the right direction. Ask us about private chauffeured tours at rates far below those offered elsewhere, and which include complimentary wine tastings at area wineries.
It's a short bike ride, 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 and pastries in the morning.
No smoking or pets please.
John and Merian were warm, friendly, down to earth & welcoming. The made me feel very comfortable & I had a great two nights of sleep.
The best place to stay in Sonoma, we are going to recommend John and Merian to all our friends. They were the best hosts with great experience and knowledge of the area and super nice with us. We loved the breakfast provided..
Just stay here and take advantage of the wine tour they are providing, would be nice to be drinking while being driven around.
Must stay here if you r coming to wine country, was definitely the best part of our trip.
John and Merian greeted us warmly and were exceptionally hospitable. Keeping in touch with them by phone was easy and helpful, too. The view through the bedroom window was lovely as the property has a lot of wonderful mature trees. The house is set in an older established neighborhood which is very quiet, lovely, private and centrally located. It is just minutes from down town Sonoma. John and Merian went above and beyond our expectations by offering us wine and wonderful conversation upon our arrival. They set the table for us in the morning and provided some easy breakfast foods. We did not feel like we were intruding but felt welcomed. It was a great balance of privacy and friendliness. This was our first Airbnb experience and honestly did not know what to expect and found it to be between a regular BnB and staying at a family friend's home. John and Merian also provided great information for making the most of a visit to the Sonoma Valley.
My husband and I had a great stay at John and Merian's home in Sonoma. The room was very well appointed, with everything we needed and was very comfortable. John and Merian were great hosts and made us breakfast both mornings we were there. They also had great recommendations on which wineries to visit.
John and Merian were such warm hosts. They greeted us with conversation and a glass of wine. Perfect to kick off the weekend in Sonoma. The room is cozy and an integral part of the home, located alongside family members' quarters. It's a quick drive to many wineries and breweries - great location.
Our host made us feel very welcomed and the house was great and accurate in the description! They were incredible hosts and showed us a lot of local places to go.
John and Merian are the best! Very loving and caring couple! Always available to talk to us and give some tips and advises!!
When we arrived they invited us to have some local delicious cheese and wine listening to some great Brazilian musics while chatting. We loved it.
They had lots of maps and cards for wine tasting.
The house is lovely and very clean and cozy.
We definitely would stay there if we go back to Sonoma!!
Thanks John and Merian!!
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.
