Why Gianna Marino chose Sonoma
Gianna moved to Sonoma from the Bay Area 8 years ago and enjoys the quiet area, kind neighbors and great food. Sonoma is the perfect location: 45 minutes to SF, 1 hour to the ocean, few hours to the snowy mountains!

A rare treasure
This gem in the hills of Sonoma was perfect for my 5 day getaway, and I was relived by the quietude and privacy. The place is furnished with all the comforts and amenities one could want, it is a 5 minute drive to the Sonoma Square, and the host is top notch! Highly recommended to all!
Very cute and charming. But not meant for more than two people.
Really enjoyed the house, it’s very cute and relaxing. Our only issue really was the fact that one of the bedrooms has a big cut out in the wall with just a curtain across. Really not private at all when there are two couples staying. I think as a rental that should be addressed as it did feel quite awkward and if I’d known I’m not sure I would have chosen that house.
Apart from that and a couple of other little bits like adding a mirror to one of the bedrooms etc. It’s a lovely house. Very charming and lovely decor!
I am glad you enjoyed the home. We have never had a problem with the wall cut-out with any of our past guests, but I will add that info to the house details for future visitors.
As for space for 4 people, we usually have 4 visitors and it is rare for us to get less than 5 stars and stellar reviews. But I understand that some people need more space than others.
Great house for the Sonoma and Napa area
The house was warm and inviting and had everything we needed. Close to the Sonoma Center and wineries. Peaceful to come back to after a day out at the sights. I would recommend this house to anyone. Thanks Gianna
peaceful, clean & cozy in a quiet wooded neighborhood
Beautiful, quiet, cozy
We stayed here for 4 nights over our wedding weekend. It was a beautiful and peaceful place to return to after wedding festivities. The house and outdoor spaces are comfortable and relaxing. The setting around the hot tub in back is wonderful!
Beautiful, unique property where you can relax and unwind
Gianna was easy to work with, pleasant, and was very helpful. The property is beautiful, light-filled, comfortable. We slept like babies, enjoyed the hot tub and the cozy living room, and loved the secluded peacefulness. Wineries and wonderful restaurants were within easy driving distance. Highly recommended.
