Please read through the entire listing to see if this is the right place for you, hosted by a British husband, his Yankee wife as part of but separate from their Holistic Health Center
This ground floor “green” apartment has been converted into a European Style Guest House. There are 5 steps down into the Guest House. It is extremely well located in the Heart of Hawthorne District just across from New Season’s Health Food Store and shares the building it is in with a Holistic Health Center, but has it’s own entrance. There are three bedrooms (don’t be confused that they are called 7, 8 & 9) all with luxurious queen size beds, closets, windows that open and lock and adjustable heating. It is naturally very cool in the summer months. The three bedrooms can be rented together for the entire space or separately with a shared lounge, fully equipped kitchen and bathroom. There is an outdoors courtyard with tables and chairs as well as a BBQ. The owners are not a resident on the premises, but lives 4 blocks away. If you are interested in a massage, it is just upstairs on Sundays, Mondays and Thursdays. Cranial Sacral Therapy is available Wed-Saturday and Infra Red Saunas Tue-Saturday at Anisha, A Center for Holistic Health.
