Fantastic place! Beautiful views, very nice neighborhood. Loved the geese! Small, quaint and perfect for my husband, my dog and me. No TV made it even better. Very nice shower. Heater worked great! Very, very quiet, just like we like it!

Geraldine is one of the best hosts I have ever met. I booked the place for my parents as they needed a retreat. She provided beautiful yoga classes to them, showed them around (organic markets, farms, and other places), gave lots of great tips. The place itself is beautiful and had everything we needed. It was a great "experience", not just a bnb for us. Thank you, Geraldine for your hosting, and we really hope to see you again in the future!

Geraldine is a wonderful host. My wife and I will always remember arriving and Geraldine walking up to us with the kindest and most welcoming smile. I’d recommend Geraldine’s place to any of my friends.

We thoroughly enjoyed our mini retreat at Geraldine's place. The space is so thoughtfully decorated, the bed was super comfy, the kitchenette was nice and useable, it was super clean, the patio and view are amazing! And she let us have access to her laundry room, which we really needed! A wonderful place to rest, relax and meditate. And Geraldine's welcome and responsiveness to all our needs made us feel right at home. She is also a yoga teacher and I had the pleasure of attending one of her classes. I loved it ! Geraldine has created quite a beautiful and sacred space on her property and we are sure to return if we ever find ourselves in the area again.

Geraldine was a wonderful host. The room is beautifully furnished and has all the necessities, plus lots of information on area attractions was provided. Even at the end of summer the covered patio was a pleasant green oasis full of birds, and a wonderful place to relax any time of the day. Great private location within a reasonable distance to many bodies of water, with a wonderful shower and comfy bed after full days of summer fun. Be prepared for the distance for meal options if you do not bring your own, but Geraldine's connection with local bakers was a delicious treat!

Originating from New Zealand, like most Kiwi's, I love travel. Having lived on five continents, I settled here at this address in Oregon House 19 years ago. My property is almost carbon neutral and I can show you the energy efficient measures that made this possible. As well as the Japanese Strolling garden I have a collection of deer-proofed old English and French roses which I hope you can enjoy blooms from in your room. I enjoy Indian classical music. I am friends with local vintners as I spent five years working at Renaissance winery.
At the entry to my driveway you see "Pax & Copia" which means Peace & Abundance, two of the Hindu goddess Lakshmi's attributes which I hope you too may find daily. It is also the motto of my families' name, Reid.
I am a longtime student of Iyengar yoga, and more recently became a Hatha Alignment Yoga Teacher with 500 hours training.
We have three yoga classes a week here in the Lakshmi home studio.
