The artist created suite is surrounded by flora and fauna gardens behind a quiet bungalow home. Private 250sq.ft. unit has a queen bed, twin pullout, bath with deep tub for 2, kitchenette, and access to a private hot tub. When I am home, a full garden inspired breakfast is an option for an extra charge, but oatmeal, granola, coffee and tea is comp. My studio is on site for touring when I'm home, but the art garden is worth exploring always . Rate is for 2, babies free, pullout use is $35 extra.

The space
This peaceful unit is a separate suite behind the main house tucked into the quaint, secluded backyard. It is a tranquil space of meditative healing with use of the Vibra Therapy Machine (search Whole Body Vibration ), outdoor non-chlorine hot tub, or indoor 2 person Japanese tub, fire pit on "The Beach", gardens of art and edibles, and a friendly cat.
Though the property feels like it is in its own little world, it's just off Hwy.101 with easy access (within a half hour) to Wine Country, Coastal attractions, San Francisco, Sausalito, Berkely, Mt. Tamalpais, Muir Woods, and Sonoma Raceway. Walking distance to groceries and restaurants.
We will do our best to accommodate your needs for the most pleasant and memorable stay, but please refrain from smoking anywhere on the premises.
The Cottage is frequently disinfected with a UVC Germicidal Bulb since the coronavirus outbreak.

*DISCLAIMER: Essential oils, flowers, and lemon/ vinegar cleaning products are usually in the cottage, so PLEASE TAKE RESPONSIBILITIES FOR SCENT SENSITIVITIES OR ALLERGIES. Disclose that in your inquiry, or if you or your companion are highly affected by earthy irritants, this may not be the best place for you. This unit is in the middle of a lush garden built just above ground that during our cold/ damp seasons can have an earthy smell! Please understand that with this Disclaimer, I will NO LONGER REFUND for last minute cancellations due to scent sensitivities. I am happy to accommodate "scent-free products” if communicated in your reservation request.

This is by no means this is a common occurrence, as can be confirmed in the hundreds of happy reviews, but the hand full of incidences create an unpleasant circumstance for both parties and I would like to avoid that potential from happening again~ this is a magical place and I strive for a extraordinary experience for everyone who stays here!

This a poem written by one of my guests who visited in May 2019. His eloquent impression of the unapologetic nature of my mischievous fairy land captures its essence better than my description~
Faerie Cottage by Forrest Gale

Down the street the dwellings prowl
Limn their necklace, cheek by jowl
In vegetation as you swerve
and wheel a circle, one more curve~
A final turn to reveal
The postage stamp of driveway
Feel your way along paths overgrown
with flowers, rioting and gone to unreason
To the soul of the place out of control
Garden lush beyond belief
It's Cottage buried in a sheaf of greensward
Sun out on the street,
Here- half light where faeries meet
And inside the numbered door
Radiate the fabrics noir
on ceiling, windows, and the floor~
The sixties Haight, Nob Hill décor
Meet and greet each other
For a fantasy of mystic lore
And Belle epoch, who could ask for more?

Guest access
The front driveway is for guest parking. With an hour or so notice, the hot tub can be ready for a soak. There is wood and a firepit for a bonfire, and a table in the courtyard for dining. Inside the Cottage there is a hot pot for tea, coffee pot, a microwave, mini frig and various kitchen items. A chef's choice garden inspired breakfast is available for $10 each upon request/ availability. When the Teri is home, the studio is open for viewing.

Other things to note

A non-toxic UVC Germicidal Bulb is used for disinfecting the room

The neighborhood is quiet with a hint children's giggles in the background. Though restaurants, groceries, and entertainment are as close as a walk to the end of the street, the property feels very secluded and far away from civilization. We were featured in the Marin IJ on Sept.2, 2014, the article is available online.

My life is a work of art, and it is evident in my home and gardens. The intention is to explore and find something captivating in each step, and new in each return. There is art and artistry in everything I do, and everything I create. From food to furniture, practical to aesthetic; it all gets touched with a little magic to elevate it from ordinary to unique and extraordinary. I declared myself an artist at age 5, but the core of my being is a healer. I find truth in the ancient use of food and botanicals, and I continue to seek out methods of natural health, youthfulness, and longevity that I can share with others. The gardens are a continuous growth process to foster this passion.
