  1. Hello my lovely friends!

    Can you please reserve me a room (single queen/king with a private bath/shower? Let me know if you need me to select the room if there are choices. Or if you feel comfortable selecting the one that you think I’ll like best, please go ahead. I’m sure all rooms are magnificent.

    I want lots of flower pedals too ๐Ÿ™‚ I have the time off at work so I’m ready to roll around in a bed of flowers and play with monkeys.

    Please let me know how much the deposit – happy to place it now.

    • Hi LeAnn!

      So very stoked that you are joining us!! We have sold out of our rooms with private bath, but all of the rooms are quite lovely. I’ll give you a call so we can discuss more details, and I can send you an invoice for the deposit. So excited to have you join us (and I am ordering extra flower petals for your room, too!!)
