  • Loved staying with Marion! It was comfortable, cozy and perfect. I slept like a rock which is saying something because away from home I don't always. But it is so much nicer and friendlier than any hotel. Marion made me a very yummy breakfast and gave me great tips on where to do some shopping. Her place is easy to find and right there in the middle of wine country. What could be better?

  • Marion's home is perfect for taking off biking or wine tasting after an awesome breakfast prepared by Marion!

  • Heart of gold Marion. A bliss retreat in the heart of Sonoma - Marion has a delightful home and is a superb host. The guest bed is the most comfortable I have experienced across airbnb with all necessary amenities at hand. Marion is a wonderful cook and prepared a delicious breakfast, having the consideration beforehand to ask me what I liked. In the morning I was welcomed by a pot of earl gray tea and large bowl of fresh fruit. We chatted while she cooked up an omelette with tasty greens - just like I'd ordered it off a menu. She is a worldly woman who has an active life in Sonoma with great knowledge to share.

    Thank you for the fabulous review. You're quite a descriptive journalist yourself. You were real pleasure to have here. thanks, marion

  • Marion's room, her whole house, and Marion herself were all a true delight. Filled with interesting vases, plates, and souvenirs from all over the world, the house was very cozy and inviting; the bed was very comfortable and everything was great. But best of all was the hostess herself. She really went out of her way to make us feel comfortable and at home, from giving us ice cold bottled water with lemon to cooking us delicious breakfasts (French toast with fresh fruit, an omelet with mushrooms and kale) served on beautiful plates and linen napkins, to offering us a glass of wine and her hot tub. Marion was genuinely caring and was really interesting to talk to because of her interesting life experiences and her travel. Be sure to book a reflexology massage with her -- she was really fantastic, and you're really going to feel relaxed. Also, the house is perfectly situated for those interested in going to Jack London State Park. I really enjoyed getting to know her and staying in her lovely home, and will recommend staying with her to anyone. It will be a warm and wonderful experience!

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Marion's house. She is very friendly and the room was clean and pleasant. She made a great breakfast for us as well. I highly recommend her to other potential guests.

  • Marion was a lovely hostess! You'll feel like you're staying with an aunt or a long-time family friend. Her home is comfortable. The bed in the guest room is great! You'll have your own full bath, as well. Let me tell you though, the best feature at this Sonoma Valley retreat is Marion's breakfast! She is a fantastic chef & my gal-friend and I dined like we were at a 5-star restaurant. Salmon, caper, creme fraiche omelets! Thick, lucious hand-dipped fresh-bread french toast with strawberry compote! Homemade apple sauce & jam! You're a very short drive to the square in downtown Sonoma and near all Sonoma wineries. She also shares great restaurant and shopping recommendations. STAY HERE & be sweet to Ms. Marion.
