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 Sonoma County

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.

My family and I had a great time! Coming home to SF was nice but we already feel the stress of the hustle and bustle less than a day back home! Sanctuaire is our place to unwind and become a family's beautiful there! We miss it and Marie is awesome!! Can't wait to go back again soon! My little 4yo cried when he saw we were back to our SF home he wanted to go right back! 😔

Absolute Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, relaxing, lovely time. The property is breath taking and the house is like something out of a fairytale. Marie has thought of every detail and has truly made a sanctuary for all of her guests. The pool is heaven and the 360 degree views are picturesque. We can't wait to return and plan on doing so as soon as possible.

Thank you for this enchanting retreat away from the hustle and bustle of city life. We could have stayed one more night. This house has good energy and the land is wonderful. We soaked it up! We were able to take an afternoon trip to the redwoods and enjoying hiking.

This house was enchanting and there were times one had to be mindful about this wonderful environment. What a gift to be on retreat and/or a writer's getaway.

Thank you Marie for your welcoming! We will be back!

Quiet, secluded beauty!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this amazing property. While a little remote, if you're looking to REALLY get away, this is a great location! Pool and hot tub were a nice treat! We hope to come back!

A unique little get away

  • 5 of 5

We loved it. It's a unique little spot set back in the canyon and very secluded. You can tell lot of love was put into hand crafting many of the details, that added a great deal to the charm. The owner was supper helpful over the phone before check in and then left us to enjoy the property. While we absolutely loved it here, I will suggest that this spot Is more appropriate to those who are looking to get away and enjoy peace and quite. Drink your coffe on the deck as watch dear cross the yard. Take a dip in the pool or BBQ your dinner. Yet while the amenities are well cared for they are not new and are better suited to responsible adults who can be somewhat gentle. If you are looking for a beer soaked weekend on the river, you may want to seek another property.

A few things I that would have been helpful for me to know... The kitchen is well stocked: blender, coffee pot, coffee grinder, lots of pots pans, cookie sheet, broiling pan, knives, toaster, salt, pepper, sugar, salad dressing, condiments, spices (likely all left over from previous guests so interesting mix). We thought they had a good supply of extra blankets, a few towels each, but there is a washer, so...Bring beach towels, and food storage options.
