STILLPOINT SANCTUARY
A Place To RE-Balance and RE-Rejuvenate

Are you ready to Re-balance? Find your center again? Enjoy the California Riviera? Drink in the beautiful rose colored Santa Barbara mountains out your windows? Relax by the fountain in your private courtyard on our 1 1/2 acres of solitude?
We have created a space of harmony and beauty for you to rejuvenate in.

You are welcome to bring your children. Bring your pet. Bring your best friend. Or come with just that someone special. However.........we know that some of the best retreats are when you come ALONE!



Relax in our King sized bed with luxury linens in the downstairs bedroom.

The Sleeping Loft has the world's most comfortable bed located up in a space with large windows on one side. Like sleeping in a luxury tree house. This space is great for kids or adventurous adults!

Cook in a fully equipped kitchen, including a dishwasher. (We personally love the dishwasher.............hand wash if you like, but the dishwasher was put there for your service. Who wants to deal with dishes on retreat)?!!
:)

We have provided a writing desk in a cozy corner with a view of the mountains, a flat screen television, cozy soft couches, brand new glass tiled bathroom, private grass courtyard that is sunny all afternoon, huge french doors that look out onto a gurgling fountain, all done in a manner to soothe your senses and bathe you in serenity.

Come here to RELAX!

We have an onsite studio for private in-house massage by one of the finest massage therapists in Santa Barbara (San Ysidro Ranch utilizes her services)! Or choose to have your massage in the cottage or outside in the courtyard!

We will stock your fridge with organic ingredients if your desire. If you don't feel like cooking, let us offer organic food served to your door by some of the best chefs around. Vegan? No problem. Want steak? We know where to get that. Craving Indian? One of our best friends is a renown Ayurvedic personal chef in town.

You can come for a HEALTH RETREAT and sign up for one of our health tracks that can include: a nutrition consult, juicing, supplement makeover, exercise recommendations and health analyses. All done by a licensed and experienced Nurse Practitioner.

We know that whatever type of retreat that you choose, you will find StillPoint Sanctuary a place you will long to come back to. We are looking forward to your visit.

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: I grew up in Santa Barbara and in the process fell in love with the beautiful foothills. The weather is the best here! We love it here on our 1.3 acres and enjoy planting, picking blackberries, enjoying the views and the solitude. I am a Nurse Practitioner and a Midwife and have been practicing for many years here. I am passionate about heath and living a balanced life. My passion is educating others so that they can find their best health and balance as well. I am a mother and an avid skier, pilot, hiker and adventurer. I want others to come and enjoy life here at the Sanctuary and take away a sense of being grounded and rejuvenated. We're here to help you make it happen!
