About Marie Zarilla

I am semi-retired and I live on the property. Truth is, it's a full time job maintaining, cleaning, and updating Sanctuaire. But, it is my labor of love.

Marie Zarilla purchased this house in 2000

Why Marie Zarilla chose Cazadero

Sanctuaire is a secluded beautiful Victorian-style home that can accommodate up to 5 people. The home is surrounded by 30 acres of oaks, redwoods, hills, and creeks with views that take your breath away. The only neighbors are birds, squirrels, other non-threatening wildlife!

What makes this house unique

Sanctuaire is most unique because of its seclusion from the hectic world. Surrounded by 30 acres of tress, creeks, and hills, total privacy awaits you.

We couldn’t ask for a better getaway. Marie takes great pride in her sanctuair.

  • 5 of 5

We are so happy we made the choice to stay at sancuair. After looking at many options on vrbo we made the decision to choose sanctuair. Our only regret is that our plans took us into bodega bay for the day and we only had a short weekend planned. Next time we visit we will plan to stay on the 30 acres and enjoy more time there. The property is close to the coast but we were committed to the ocean and will not be the next visit. We missed out on the amazing peaceful atmosphere sanctuair offers. We will book here and refer it to family and friends. Our only recommendation to to stay longer than two nights.... Thank you Marie.....

You have created and amazing property.......

If you cant find me......dont look here ;)

  • 5 of 5

This really isn't a review, but more of a Thank you!! Marie made the whole transaction simple and, in our case, was able to book us very last minute. There weren't a thousand questions or rules bestowed upon us. The booking and check in process were personable and simple. I hope to meet her someday. (when we return again and again, of course;)

Now, about this place.......its all about the privacy and let me tell you, that's what you will find here!! We literally felt like we were on top of the world while we enjoyed the hot tub under the stars. The property is nicely landscaped with many stone statues and fountains. The pond is lovely with sitting benches scattered around the shore and lots of lily pads. There are several options for decks/patios and balconies to choose from. The bathtub overlooking the gorgeous rolling yard was beyond relaxing. We used the master suite upstairs however the downstairs master looked so inviting with the darker lighting, larger bed and fireplace right beside the bed. All three bedrooms/suites are individually private with their own private patios or balconies. I also cooked in the kitchen, which was well appointed and ready for my use. So to sum up our experience ....THIS IS A RARE FIND, A GEM FOR SURE!!!!! Marie (the owner) is the friend/family member we all wish we had and the house is the space we all wish we could escape to from time to time. Its a match made in vacation rental heaven!!!! Thanks Marie, so much. Yours in Health, Jessica Moore

Beautiful unique home in a gorgeous relaxing setting

  • 5 of 5

The house is really special and we could see the love Marie had put in to it. It suited my parents, my husband, my infant, and our two dogs perfectly for a quiet relaxing weekend away to celebrate my mum's birthday. The house's unique charm may not be suitable for energetic dogs or young curious children - but I would definitely recommend the house for adults. Marie was very communicative and did not hesitate to pick up the phone, but also respected our privacy at the house. Thank you Marie for sharing this beautiful place with us.

My daughters, son in law and I stayed at Marie's enchanted home for 2 nights. The house is relaxing and calm. The surrounding area is beautiful! My only regret was we were there for such a short time!
