The-eco-NEST, an eco-dweller's delight nestled in a forest of redwood & madrones yet only 45 minutes from SF, CA,
borders thousands of acres of open space for hiking & biking in West Marin's SAN GERONIMO VALLEY.
This valley, comprised of 5 hamlets between Pt. Reyes Station & Fairfax, CA, is a nature lover's paradise
artists, musicians, healers, restaurants, environmental activists, and a vibrant community spirit.
The NEST is a haven for some people with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities.
The NEST is fragrance-free, chemical-free, free of mold, & does not use microwave, smartMeter or WiFi. We have cable internet.
The NEST is stepped out from the lower floor of our home and is a private retreat with private decks and secluded patio.
Your host Marcia has MCS and has been involved with Gupta work Amygdalay Brain Retraining.
The ecoNEST and other structures on the property have
been checked for environmental, chemical, and EMF/RF toxins
by a healthy building company Bau-Biologist. There is no wifi and there is no SmartMeter.
