An organic retreat: the house is eclectic with decor reflecting my travels. It is a place for meditation, reflection and healing. The hawks call out, vultures soar overhead, hummingbirds chirp, the deer and quail gently visit while I write. The foxes like to eat from the apple tree where the wind chimes blow in the breeze. Located on a hill overlooking the lagoon, it is serene and sunny - a 7 minute walk to the beach and near a SF lookout.
The house is very special and your room has an organic mattress! I've created a nice sanctuary there for you with tranquil and healing energy. There are plenty of hangers and racks for you to put your items! The living room has a large yantra for reflection. The whole house is organic - chemicals nor artificial scents are not used. There is a alkalizing water filtration system. As I'm a vegan holistic chef, I have a fully equipped kitchen that is vegetarian - eggs and cheese are ok. I'm practicing dish washing as a meditation. :-) There is a yoga mat, block, strap and bolster for you to use and many books on yoga philosophy if you'd like.
The whole kitchen is vegan - there has never been meat touching any of the pans. I have a vitamix, an Omega juicer, and pretty much most food gadgets you might need in the kitchen.
This is my full time residence - so it is lived in. I will close off my office and bedroom. Your room and the rest of the house are available. There is a garden with some leafy greens growing.
The house is a sanctuary. I generally don't invite too many guests over to keep the energy in the house uncluttered. The rental is for those seeking a heart-full and rest-full sanctuary, to meditate, practice yoga, read, reflect, etc. No alcohol or smoking on or around the property nor drinking and coming back, no drugs, plant-based medicine, barbecues or parties are permitted. Please no smokers, nor perfume or cologne use at the house, as the house is for healing, detox and mindfulness - it is a natural sanctuary. I am a vegan and ask that a vegetarian/vegan diet is followed in the house. I am also a vegan chef and many people would not want to have cross-contamination of cookware when I prepare food for them. Shoes are also not worn in the house. There are slippers provided for you by the door.
Security Deposit (optional)
The neighborhood is quiet and residential. There are no street lamps so you can see the stars! You can hear the ocean at high tide. There are beautiful trails and spaces for a natural gym - running, hiking, swimming, and biking.
The beaches are pretty amazing.
There is a parking space in front of the house. There is a bus that goes to Marin City from here several times a day and it is a short walk up the hill to the house.

About Your Host
I'm from San Francisco and love to connect with nature. I love singing to the ocean, listening to its wisdom. I love experimenting and making delicious vegan food. I'm a vegan holistic chef, life coach and also design peacebuilding/civil society projects around the world. I worked as a diplomat but left to return back to my roots in California. I love traveling - my favorites have been Brazil, Colombia, the scenery and food of Ethiopia, everything about Istanbul, and getting to see the wonders of my home in California!
My home is my sanctuary and I treat others homes the same way, sacredly. My motto is: Be kind, we are all human. Do whatever is your mission in this life and help others.
