We are Mary-Margaret and Cary Stratton, but you can call us Anand and Mason! When Cary graduated culinary school, he took on the moniker, Raw Chef Mason Green (to end the confusion of his name… are you Gary, Karrie? Carrie? Corey?). Mary-Margaret has used the pen name, Anand, since the 1990s and now most of her friends use it as her nick-name.

We love to travel and to host fellow eco-oriented travelers. We run a 'Conscious Eating' Meetup with over 500 people interested in healthy fun things to do in Las Vegas: raw vegan potlucks, yoga, farmer's markets, gardens, 12 step meetings, hikes, spas, gourmet vegetarian restaurants and much more...

Some of our favorite things to do when traveling are finding local grown food and unique gourmet markets with vegetarian foods, visiting great architecture of any era, hikes to waterfalls and seeing large formal gardens (ala Buschart, Filoli, Longwood, etc.). We also like to find fresh water drinking springs and wild hot springs for soaking.

We were both born in Los Angeles where we became Mid Century Modern architecture fans. Anand started a seminal historic preservation website called LottaLiving and was once a tour captain at the famous Charles and Ray Eames House. We restored a 1964 Eichler Home in L.A. that was designed by A Quincy Jones and Emmons that was in movies and TV and eventually became a historic L.A. landmark! We have since restored several homes in Las Vegas, including Palmer & Krisel and Jones & Emmons homes.

Professionally speaking, Anand is a Creative Director and User Experience Architect. She is a Certified Raw Food Nutritionist and is an ordained Essene. Mason graduated from Living Light Culinary Institute. He is a former Sound Professional (with credits on movies like Titanic and The Big Lebowski!). And guests can hear him play Live Jazz drums every week in Downtown Las Vegas.

We look forward to being your hosts for your fun and healthy home away from home.
