House 18: VIRA

House 18 is composed of 2 separate structures and offers a cozy, bright retreat space for an individual retreater. With few cottages in view, house 18 is perfect for those that prefer a sense of community and support during retreat.

The meditation and sleeping space is comfortably insulated from the outside world, with a small east-facing screen porch.


The bedroom was designed without electricity to provide those who are sensitive with a deeply peaceful experience. Portable solar lamps provide evening light. The second building is equipped with DC electricity and consists of the kitchen and bathroom.
