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.

Our family of 5 had a wonderfully relaxing time at Sanctuaire. We enjoyed the sounds of the forest, the hike down to the creek as well as the pool and spa. It reminded me of a cool ginger bread house (with all of the comforts of home). We spent the day at Fort Ross, Duncan Mills as well as Guerneville. There are so may things to do and see. Thank you for a wonderful weekend Marie! Michel and gang
Michel and her family were great guest's. They left the home in such great shape~It was a pleasure to come back to the home~ I sure hope to see them some time again in the future~but if not~i wish them happy travels~Marie
Our family vacation was AMAZING. A beautiful hide away, its easy to escape from the world and relax. Marie is awesome and gives you your privacy. We cant wait for our next visit!!!!
Secluded, charming and unique home
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this well-loved home. Cushy carpets, bathtub with a view, plush towels, comfy bed, gas stove, private pool/hot tub, dining on the patio, the sound of the birds, crickets, wind and nothing else. Very secluded and charming home. Every day, we noticed more detail throughout Sanctuaire, very unique! The dragonflies at the pond provided mindful entertainment. This is a great place to relax and get away from the hectic pace of life.
I'm so glad that sanctuaire was a good choice for you~Take good care and have a wonderful summer~Marie
What a beautiful property!
We absolutely loved this house and its glorious pool, pond, hot tub and porches. It's all about the private, top of the world, outdoor living here.
The kitchen had all the tools we needed and we made good use of the outdoor grill. We weren't able to hook up to the wifi but luckily it wasn't a working weekend, so I didn't pursue finding a solution.
One piece of info I didn't find elsewhere is that the property is not all fenced in. Since we've got relatively young dogs, one being a sighthound that loves to chase deer, I'm glad that I brought some long leashes so they could wander a bit but not too far.
All in all, an absolutely beautiful weekend at a property that exceeded our expectations. We can't wait to return.
We couldn’t ask for a better getaway. Marie takes great pride in her sanctuair.
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 ;)
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
