Reiki Sessions / Energy Healing:

Michele is a Reiki Practitioner. You may want to book a session and experience a super relaxed state of consciousness ... the ideal state where natural healing occurs. Cat Osho may join the session for added pet therapy!

Reiki Overview
A Reiki session is a super-relaxing process where we use the life force energy in the Universe to assist you in accessing a greater awareness of "who you really are" for the optimal performance of your human body, mind and spirit. Everyone receiving a Reiki session experiences a super-relaxed state of mind, body and spirit. Sometimes other experiences may be noted. You may feel the energy from me such as the heat coming from my hands and tingling sensations in your body, you may feel a slightly uncomfortable pressure (not caused by my physical hands) as an energetic block is being cleared for greater access to well-being; images may appear in your conscious mind with new insights to unsolved questions; and sometimes you'll feel the presence of your dear loved ones who have already transitioned to the other side such as family, friends and pets. They are energy too and work with the energy in the Universe to support you during this process!!

My cats love the energy and will typically join the client on the table. The clients love the added depth that their energy provides. However, if you are not comfortable with that experience, we can put them in another room.

A one hour session is $65.

Interaction with guests

We enjoy welcoming our guests and sharing with them what we love about our community and we love getting to know them. However, we enjoy our private time as well and realize that most guests like their "down-time" and have their own schedules to keep... as do we. We find we offer a good balance of hospitable warmth as well as independence for our guests.

We flew into Delaware for the Firefly festival and stayed with Michelle and Sean. They were happy to host two diehard music fans that came back to their house extra late 4 days in a row - sometimes 2 am! They went above and beyond as hosts. Would recommend them with enthusiasm. Thank you, Michelle and Sean!

Originally my friend and I were just looking for a place to sleep and clean up during Firefly Music Festival. I realized when we got there and met Michele we had made a good choice. Sean was out when we got there so we didn't meet him until later that evening. Michele was great about showing us around and then just letting us settle in. Sean was up when we got back from the festival the first night and also really nice. My friend and I have used this site before. This time we both agreed the location was better for us and that Michele and Sean are the type of people we just feel comfortable around. It was like staying with friends.

It was a true pleasure staying with Michele and Sean. They were gracious and accommodating. They allowed us the use of their beautiful home giving us all the details we needed to know to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Michele and Sean spent time with us giving excellent restaurant recommendations, as well as, driving instructions to the NASCAR raceway. Every amenity was thought out! Would highly recommend a stay in their lovely home!!!

I did not stay in this AirBnB location, but I did book the room for my two friends who were in town for the Firefly Festival. My friends were very happy with the accommodations, and with the hosts. Sean and Michelle were also kind and considerate when we were communicating prior to the stay, and they were very flexible and thoughtful about when the guests could arrive and check in. We had an erratic schedule due to the music festival hours, and the hosts were very understanding and lenient about arrivals and departures. My friends were very happy with everything about their stay.

Michele and Sean were accommodating and easy to work with. They had a friend let us in when they couldn't be there for our arrival, and were gracious in the morning. Wish we could have stayed longer! House is beautiful. They take great care of it. Bathroom is bigger than some Manhattan apartments.

My experience at Michele and Sean Andersen's home was wonderful. They are attentive and helpful hosts (e.g., they gave me a ride to the next town and had an extra charger for my phone), and are just really nice, genuine people. Their home is a beautiful, old house from about 1900.

My stay at Michele and Sean's home was lovely. They were terrific hosts and the accommodations were better than I could have hoped for. Thanks for making my first trip to Dover and NASCAR a pleasure!
