If you have to be up and out before we have a chance to see you, don't worry. You are clear to go when you need to and there is no face-to-face check out needed, although goodbye hugs are always welcomed...but don't feel like you need to sneak out if you don't want a hug. ;-)

WALKING LIBERTY ~ HOUSE RULES
Many of the house rules would be considered commons sense to some and yet, we have found it prudent to be specific.
If these seem straight forward to you then wonderful! You will have a very easy stay. If these seem challenging or irritating then you may prefer accommodations elsewhere.

We are Ian, Sharmil & Sharon (Sharmil's mom)
Ian & Sharmil and are both Desire-based life coaches and OM trainers. Our work is often in the areas of relationships, communication, intimacy, connection, and how to live a fulfilled life lead by desire rather than fear. We are blessed to be able to work from home. Sharmil is also a professional photographer on hiatus.
Sharon (Sharmil's mom) aka "the house mom" is great for the warm motherly touch, advise or conversation or sometimes the swift kick in the butt, when needed. ;-)
If you have the privilege to meet this wonderful soul, know that she is our trusted partner and please treat her as you would or better than your own mother.
A little about our hosting approach:
We find that community is an essential part of our way of life. I jokingly (and kind of seriously) say "Now that you're here, you are family. Now that you know this, are you sure you want to stay?" ;-) That's because this is our home, the home of our chosen family and everyone we invite into it is done with love and we don't hide anything. We are real people who live real lives under this big beautiful roof and do our best to live what we teach.
That being said, if you want a retreat and would prefer to keep to yourself that's totally cool too...all part of being real. We need time to ourselves as well.
Our goal and desire is for our home to be your home-away-from-home and perhaps you will come to love it (in all it's quarks) as much as we do.
*And we love greetings and farewells with hugs*
We (Sharon included) have lived well traveled lives and that is a large part of why we decided to start a guesthouse in our home. Having been a guest countless times over our lives and travels has instilled an appreciation for the value of a home over a hotel.
We are happy to offer each of our guests one free introductory coaching session (on any topic of interest) with either of us. You can speak with us about it during your stay or message us via the app to set up an appointment.
Sessions are up to an hour long and can be done in person during your stay, or via phone/video chat if we don't have an opportunity to meet with you while you are in town.
And if you are interested but want to know more about what we do, we are happy to answer any questions.
