Marion was lovely and accommodating. Would highly suggest staying with her.
Marion's lovely room was the perfect retreat for a quick weekend getaway to Sonoma! The room was charming and well appointed, and the bed was very comfortable. Location was great - I had friends staying down the street at the Sonoma Mission Inn, and it was a short walk back and forth.
Marion was a lovely host, greeting me when I arrived with a refreshing glass of cool water infused with herbs from her garden, and making me coffee in the morning. She was very attentive to my needs. Overall, it was a wonderful experience!
I am writing this review on behalf of my father who is from Austria and stayed with Marion on the weekend of my wedding.
Marion was very welcoming from the moment she opened the door. She went out of her way to show my dad and me around her house, which is very beautiful and cozy. She even wrote down my dad's preferences for breakfast, which she prepared for every morning. My dad told me that they spent a lot of "family time" just sitting and talking.
Although he didn't spend a whole lot of time at Marion's house, the time he did he enjoyed very much.
I truly hope that future Airbnb experiences will be as pleasant as our first one.
Marion is a great host and makes you feel right at home at her house.
Thank you Marion!
Great host, very welcoming. We enjoyed our stay immensely. First class breakfast.
Marion was a wonderful host, and we are so gracious she welcomed me and my fiancee into her beautiful home. The room she provided was well lit and perfectly cool on a hot day in the Sonoma summer. The bed was quite comfortable, and the bathroom adjacent to the room was quite tidy and included fresh towels. Marion greeted us right when we arrived. She even pampered us with ice water with mint to quench our thirsts and then provided us with directions to our next destination in the town square. She made us a delicious breakfast the following morning that included fresh fruit, yogurt, coffee, and scrambled eggs with cherry tomatoes from her garden. I highly recommend Marion's home as a place to stay for out of towners looking to get a flavor of local Sonoma living.
Marion was a great host and the room was clean and quiet. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. For the price, I think it was a great value.
My wife and I had a great time at Marion's house. She was very pleasant and welcoming. We would stay there again for sure. Sonoma has to be one of most beautiful places in California. Loved it!
