A street-side entry through a lovely garden gate takes you to this large, elegant and private, 3-ROOM suite for two (2). Your accommodations include the master bedroom furnished with French antiques, an adjoining reading room with Asian accents and the en suite master bath. The living area totals 457 square feet. Furnishings include original artwork by European-born artist Jaroslav Lobanovsky.

We welcome you to relax in the privacy of our Asian-inspired garden encompassed by mature and majestic trees. Take an afternoon nap in the hammock. Enjoy the beauty of the goldfish pond or walk around the Kwan Yin meditation pool.

Your host resides in a side wing in the main part of the home. The Garden Paradise is located on Sonoma's popular East Side, only blocks away from the the famous Sonoma Plaza where there are quaint shops, wine tasting rooms, restaurants, boutiques and historical California landmarks. A short 10- minute walk gets you there before you know it.

The suite features a queen bed with fine linens, down comforter and a memory foam mattress topper. The luxurious en suite bath gives you the option of using the separate shower or the 6' jetted tub. Views from all 3 rooms to the charming garden with mature trees make you feel like you are in the middle of a private park.

Guests have the use of a small coffee and tea maker in the unit. There are no cooking facilities, but there is a wide variety of dining establishments just minutes from your door or delivery services avialable from some of our local restaurants as well. For your convenience other amenities include wi-fi, robes, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, music, and beautiful, fresh flowers.

An optional continental breakfast is provided if you let us know at time of reservation. Our guests receive a package of wine tasting passes and discount vouchers to local merchants personally selected by your host. Complimentary concierge services are available upon request. Daily maid service maybe booked for an additional charge when reserving the suite.

Tessie, the 'estate's' Gordon Setter will welcome you to her garden paradise and 50-year old redwood grove. There you will find our seating areas for your relaxation and comfort.

Easy parking is available right in front of the house in this safe, quiet, and centrally-located residential neighborhood. Historic wineries and downtown attractions are within a few minutes walk from the Garden Paradise.

About Maria Lobanovsky

I have lived in Sonoma since 2000 and absolutely love the warm and friendly community that it is. I am a San Francisco native, who has traveled all over the world, and has made friends from the mountains of Nepal to the south seas of Tahiti. I am interested in all cultures, their traditions, foods, and music.

Professionally, I specialize in marketing, sales, account management, and public relations. I have written three memoir-cookbooks books currently on Amazon and am presently editing the next one, all part of The Lobanovsky Family Table E-series.

With a focus on Russian American culture and international cuisine, I write a weekly blog to highlight news that is off the beaten track, or little known facts that link America and Russia. I have planned events of all kinds for both personal and public celebrations.

I offer concierge services to guests wishing to get the most out of their Sonoma visit. My goal is to make your stay as memorable and enjoyable as possible, not only in my home but in the wine country at large.

Why Maria Lobanovsky chose Sonoma

This property offers privacy, the natural, serene beauty of an established, park-like garden, yet is 10 minutes away by foot (even less by car) from many amenities and services that Sonoma offers. While parking is available at your gate, you don't need a car to take advantage of anything around the Sonoma plaza, the theater, world-class restaurants, wine tasting room, and wineries. In short: convenience, tranquility, beauty and comfort at a luxury location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Maria was a wonderful and warm host and her place was beautiful, spacious and cozy. We had breakfast at her garden patio among redwood trees, grape trees and birds! A priceless experience! I highly recommend her place! We had a 5-star treatment with a personal touch we can't find in hotels! Thank you Maria!

Exactly what you picture when think of Sonoma

  • 5 of 5
The Chez Marie was gorgeous, clean, smelled great, and the food provided was plentiful, fresh, and delicious. The garden is beautiful with lots of places to sit outside and relax and Tessie, her dog, was a delight to be around. For those of you who are not dog people, do not let the fact that there is a dog on the grounds deter you from staying there. Tessie only came by us when we summoned her, and we heard her bark once for maybe 2 seconds. The neighborhood was pretty, quiet, safe, and definitely walking distance to the plaza. The only thing that I will say is that you are looking for a lot of privacy, you may want to look elsewhere. While we never felt that Maria was imposing on our privacy, there were times when you could hear her doing dishes, etc. However, this never bothered us and we would definitely stay there again, but I just think it is worth mentioning.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. I am delighted that your stay at Chez Marie was exactly as you imagined a Sonoma experience should be! I know out-of-town guests really care about how close their accommodations are to the Plaza because walking around, seeing things close up like the beautiful landscapes of the neighborhood, enhance the Sonoma feeling. You were wonderful guests to host. Please come back again!
