The experience with Melissa was relaxing and fun. She really knows the area & was able to give us a behind the scenes look into the town of Felton as we drove to our hiking destination. I felt like I was spending time with a good friend & can’t wait to do it again.

Melissa was a fantastic host. Her spot in Loch Lomond was serene and the perfect spot for a shot hike and yoga amongst the majestic redwoods. Melissa was very welcoming, let me borrow her yoga mat, drove our group to the spot and talked about the history of the neighborhood. Fantastic experience, highly recommended!

Melissa is committed to sharing the hidden beauty of Loch Lomand with the public. I promise you, once you set your sight on the picturesque water, redwoods, hiking trails and calmness of this recreation area, you WILL be back. The morning yoga practice was nestled in a redwood "fairy ring", and the content of the practice was suitable for all levels of experience. Having 30 years of experience teaching yoga, I assure you, it was exceptionally instructed. This opportunity lasts until October. Loch Lomand closes for the Fall and Winter.

Melissa provides the perfect opportunity to commune with nature and the mountains by incorporating yoga into the hike. For someone that loves both the mountains and yoga, it was the perfect pairing. For a hiker, the hike was not difficult at all. It was an active stroll with a few elevation changes and eventually we ended up in a cathedral-type area surrounded by beautifully tall trees, the sounds of the breeze blowing through and the sun shining down on us. Unlike anything I have ever experienced before and totally worth doing again!

Melissa is incredibly knowledge about health and self-care, and she doesn't just teach it, she lives it. I started learning excellent tips and tricks from the moment I walked in. Her home is warm and inviting and she made my friend and I feel extremely welcome. Definitely a great experience! She is also an amazing and intuitive massage therapist. I would see her again just for that. Thank you, Melissa!!

Inspirational. Had a wonderful time learning about Self Care for Wellness with Melissa on Saturday. I was not entirely sure what to expect since it was one of the more unusual experiences on Airbnb but it was really worth it. I had known for a while that I should be looking after myself better and adopting a healthier lifestyle but never managed to get over the hump. What I liked the most is that Melissa has actually improved her own health significantly so really walks the walk. With her non-judgmental and relaxed style, she casually introduced us to the world of juice blending and ginger shots! Lots of great tips and interesting things to do with baking soda. Her approach to healthier eating seemed way more attainable to me and could be easily attainable with only minor adjustments in my lifestyle. Had lots of fun playing with her endless supply of massage aids, relaxing in the hot tub and then the infra-red sauna. We ended the session with a heavenly massage. Perfect. Left the session with renewed vigor and commitment to myself.
