The Space

Located in beautiful northern California, Petaluma is 30 minutes to the Pacific, forty-five minutes north of San Francisco and a short drive to wine country. A quick 10 minute walk to downtown shops, restaurants and theater, this is a great getaway for your Northern California escape.

The house is large and gives a lot of privacy in the upstairs where you have a queen size bed and a separate, shared bathroom. There is an an additional bath for use if needed. The kitchen is downstairs as well as laundry. Our neighborhood is great for walks with charming architecture to take in and a park just around the block.

There is much to do locally and close by and we'll be happy to make recommendations.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This was our first AirBnB experience and my husband, my 9.5 month old daughter and I spent a wonderful time at Maurice' and Sheri's house. Both of them were exceptionally welcoming and friendly and made our stay very pleasant. Sheri was just wonderful taking care of our baby girl and feeding her scrambled eggs so my husband and I could enjoy our delicious breakfast which they had prepared for us. I can't recommend Maurice' and Sheri's hospitality highly enough. We'll definitely come back for more.

  • We had the privilege of staying with Sheri and Maurice for three nights....the only bad thing I can say is that it was ONLY three nights! What delightful hosts they were...offering not only top notch accommodations, but intelligent and interesting conversation with the delicious breakfasts! We were treated like royalty! Their home is beautiful and welcoming...just like them... And although we parted as new felt right from the time we arrived as if we we had known them forever!! They are very knowledgeable about the surrounding areas. Central location that facilitates visiting either the Pacific coast or wine country....we did both! Highly recommended!! You won't regret it!

  • Excellent hosts! We had a great stay while attending a conference. Despite their having an unexpectedly busy household, they took good care of us and ensured that we didn't deal with noise. The room was very comfortable and very nicely appointed. Breakfasts were far better than I expect and delivered punctually.

  • We had a wonderful stay after initial bumpy start because hosts were out of town and had first timer covering for them. But they were very available by phone to help us out. Our breakfasts were premade and heated the morning of and yummy so can only imagine how great they would be made fresh. Just sorry we didn't get to meet Maurice and Sheri but they have beautiful home and I LOVED the bed. Thank you

  • This was our first experience with Airbnb and it was beyond our expectations! The neighborhood was quiet and very nice, the house was beautiful and the décor was so very charming! It was everything I imagined a B&B would look like and then some. The house was clean and pristine with a relaxed and downhome country feel. Maurice and Sheri were an absolute delight! They were very warm and welcoming, and we felt very comfortable in their home. When we arrived there were a few chickens on the front lawn and a big fluffy cat on the front porch. Their home could easily be on the cover of a country living magazine. The bed was more comfortable than mine at home and we were fortunate to have the bathroom to ourselves as there were currently no other guests. Breakfast was amazing! I couldn't have had a more delicious healthy breakfast if I had paid top dollar at an upscale restaurant. Maurice took the time to add the extra touches that made it simply gourmet! Oh, and I was completely spoiled when he insisted on warming my cup before pouring me coffee! It doesn't get any better than that! My only regret - we were just passing through and could only stay one night. I could easily plan my vacation just around staying at this B&B. I am conflicted about posting my review because I really don't want to let everyone in on the secret. I hope there is availability the next time I am in the area. I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else!

  • We had a delightful time at Sheri & Maurice's. The house was clean and cozy with great bed and bath linens. Breakfast and conversations with Maurice in the morning were wonderful. Lovely garden with chickens! They accommodated an early check-in as well. I highly recommend this place.

  • Maurice was great! SO friendly and warm :) loved the breakfast that he made us too. Pity we did not get to meet Sheri.

    Petaluma is such a cute town- just what we needed for our weekend getaway. They also made a reservation for us at Cucina Paradiso- a gem in Petaluma!

  • We had a wonderful stay at Maurice's house. From the moment he and his chickens greeted us in his driveway until we left, Maurice had everything planned to perfection. We loved all the antique decor around their beautiful and photogenic house. The room we stayed in made our daughter feel like a real princess. If we ever travel through Petaluma again we would gladly stay here again.

We are a marired couple and have lived here in Petaluma for almost 40 years. Our home is furnished with many antiques because of our interests and business. We have hosted exchange students from Spain and France (for up to a school year) and have traveled to Europe several times and hope to go again to see different countries. We love the many dining choices here in town all focusing on fresh local food as well as a number of microbreweries. We enjoy walks in a number of parks here with walking trails, marshes and water fowl. Downtown is less than a fifteen minute walk with many antique shops, restaurants, movie theater and coffee (website hidden) tie up in downtown at the "turning basin" on the Petaluma River providing a great view from many local restaurants.
