THE HOSTS: Laurie is a Watsu Practitioner (massage given in our private warm-water pool), and enjoys singing in multiple bands. Russell teaches in the Criminal Justice program at CSU Sacramento, and loves to BBQ. We both took the fabulous MTI Massage 100 course in years past and know you will most likely check in tired and hungry. You are welcome to shower and relax in the warm pool (no charge if we don’t need to heat it more) and use the microwave/toaster to make a simple meal. We’ll either make you coffee/tea or you can use the hot water kettle in your room for quality instant coffee or herbal tea. You’ll awaken to a healthy, yummy breakfast with us or in your room.

Our Home: 1418 Colgate Dr, Davis, CA 95616
Off “L” street, between 5th and 8th streets in east Davis
Free parking in front of our house; leave your car and walk 15-20 minutes to school
THE NEIGHBORHOOD: Davis is a friendly, bicycle small town with a low crime rate. Our neighborhood, Davis Manor, was built in the 1950’s and our house has been updated. Our neighbors are friendly (one is grumpy about parking, so use our spaces) and we have a vibrant active group that has organized painting street murals, watering new trees and hosting monthly Happy Hours. Our house hosts the Little Free Library!
No tobacco smokers (even outside) as some of my clients are allergic. I’m serious about this, no exceptions.
The Cat: So sorry, no pets; we have a cat “Junie B Jones”. We vacuum a few times a week; please leave your door closed if you don’t want her in your room. She does get up on the kitchen table to get to her window seat; we clean the table prior to meals. No litterbox in the house; she’s an indoor-outdoor cat so feel free to let her in and out. Junie is a sweet kitty with a darling “voice” when she’s communicating her needs.
WATSU WARM-WATER MASSAGE: $80 (a $10 discount for overnight guests). Watsu (water-shiatsu) is a unique bodywork modality, the ultimate in relaxation and pain relief as I float, massage, stretch and swirl you through the warm water. Please reserve before you arrive.
