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, bagels or pastries and cereal in the morning.
No smoking or pets please.
John & Merian were fabulous hosts. They made us feel very welcome in their home. The recommendations and directions of places to consider were quite helpful in assisting us in planning our activities in Sonoma and Napa.
We accompanied John & Meruan to the Sonoma city party and it was great. A truly authentic evening of music, picnicing and people watching. We felt like we were residents. We also felt like friends. This was our first airbnb experience and it was great! We would certainly recommend John & Merian. We hope they take us up on the offer to visit us!
John and Merian's home was IDEAL for our Sonoma visit. They made us feel very welcome by easy communication, a clean room complete with guidebooks, a bottle of wine waiting for us, and an awesome breakfast spread each morning. They were both full of wonderful recommendations of how to spend our two days in Sonoma. We were able to sit down with them and share a bottle of wine and get to know one another which we greatly enjoyed! I would absolutely recommend this Airbnb to anyone looking to enjoy wine country! Thanks John and Merian.
John and Merian were excellent hosts. They were extremely welcoming and allowed us our privacy when we needed it. They always had cereal, pastries, coffee and tea available for breakfast and were willing to enjoy time on their patio with pleasant conversations. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with them and would recommend them to anyone seeking an Airbnb in the Sonoma area.
This room was perfect for our stay in Sonoma. It was clean, quiet and with a comfortable bed. John was very friendly and a nice surprise was that he offered breakfast (bagels and cereal) every morning. Unfortunately we didn't get to meet Merian since she was traveling as well. During our stay we also took the wine tour with John that was offered which was fun since we got to se parts outside of Sonoma. We warmly recommend this place for your stay in Sonoma! There is nothing to improve here.
John and Merian made us feel at home. They were very kind and courteous and their house and the room we stayed in were both lovely.
John and Merian were wonderful hosts! They had everything ready and waiting for us, and they welcomed us into their home with wine and good conversation. It was great to get advice from them about different things to do in Sonoma. The location was quiet but also close to town.
