                      About the owner: Nancy is an artist, actor and author. Gary owns a coin-operated telescope business. We are both affiliated with the Bainbridge Graduate Institute (a Green MBA program). We love having visitors and have hosted many events in our home. Gary is from Hollywood and Nancy is from Des Moines, Iowa. Go figure. Gary was the first director of the Institute of Noetic Sciences. Nancy worked as a corporate consultant for many years.

                      Why the Owner Chose Montara:
                      This is possibly the most beautiful location in the world. No exaggeration. We have updated our home to make it especially beautiful, comfortable and welcoming.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Beaches on either side of us, bluff over the ocean, you can hear the ocean lull you to sleep. Wonderful restaurants nearby, only 30 minutes to San Francisco, hour's drive to Santa Cruz. We can arrange a total spa experience with massage, Yoga, Feldenkrais, meditation in house or at nearby spas and Yoga studios.
