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's house is very well situated to explore wine country as well as take a trip into the city for dinner and a show. Our trip included a local win tasting tour graciously hosted by John, a quick drive to San Fransisco for dinner and a walk along pier 39 as well as an amazing Zipline tour of the redwoods a quick hour away in the town of Occidental. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Lovely comfortable home equal to the lovely hosts. Very comfy bed. Tidy, clean and homey environment including Dharma, their personable pooch. Room is small yet accommodating. I felt very welcome here. Thank you, Meriam & John!

John and Merian were absolutely perfect hosts, and their home is lovely and conveniently located for visiting wineries and the Sonoma Plaza. They greeted us with wine and cheese and some delightful conversation. The bedroom was very clean and comfortable. The bathroom was very clean and the shower was great. We highly recommend staying with John and Merian when you are visiting Sonoma. We hope to return someday for a longer stay.

John and Mariana were very gracious upon our arrival,sharing a bottle of wine,cheese and crackers with us,along with pleasant conversation. They made us feel very comfortable while at the same time respecting our privacy. The bed was cozy and the shower was awesome. They also were able to direct us to local establishments that were delicious and reasonably priced. The wine tour that John offered would have been FABULOUS if it weren't for the torrential rains that day. He was an absolute trooper driving in that weather! We really appreciate it.

We loved staying at John and Merian's place. Their house is cozy and welcoming. We were out every night in downtown Sonoma which is only a 5 minute drive down the road. They provided a delicious breakfast of coffee, bagels and cream cheese, and cereal. Thank you so much for the hospitality.

John And Merian User Profile

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.
