Description of the Occidental vacation cottage rental
Why visit Shanti?

Shanti means peace
Shanti is a Sanskrit word meaning peace, rest, calmness, tranquility and bliss. Its broader meaning is inner peace, a state of being mentally and spiritually at peace. Owner Elizabeth Medgyesy says, "Many people have told me in the past that this land radiates peace and tranquility. Perhaps it is because of the abundant sunshine so uncommon in this ecosystem of dense Redwood trees. Perhaps it is because this is the site of the original farmhouse of the area, situated above monolithic rocks with three natural springs emanating from them.Shanti means peace, and inner peace comes from being in the natural environment of Shanti.

Location, location, location
Coleman Valley Road is known as the most beautiful road in Sonoma County. Shanti is located directly on incredible Coleman Valley Road and only a short two-mile drive, bike ride or traffic-free walk from the lovely hamlet of Occidental with its shops, video store/internet cafe, famous Italian/French/Breakfast restaurants and locally-owned gift and organic food markets. The drive from Occidental to Shanti affords beautiful views of Mount Saint Helena and the surrounding Mayacamas Mountains to the east. But it is further west that attracts so many visitors. The remaining eight miles from Shanti to the ocean vary between a shockingly steep, narrow, curvy and spectacularly panoramic drive unparalleled in Sonoma County. Forested landscapes of a varied ecosystem of deciduous oaks, Redwoods and Douglas firs give way to sudden vistas of meadows and a sometimes fog-shrouded ocean that stretches into eternity. The drive to the coast takes about 35 minutes, but you will stop to take pictures all along the way. This is the number one scenic attraction of the area and directions are easy: Just take a left out of our driveway!
In addition, Shanti is neighbors with the highly acclaimed Occidental Arts and Ecology Center (OAEC), Western Hills Garden, Willow Creek Nature Preserve with its miles of hiking and biking trails, dozens of wineries, Osmosis Day Spa with its world-renowned Cedar Enzyme Bath, restaurants, cheese shops, bakeries, brewpubs, zip lines, kayaking and canoeing. Archery lessons can also be arranged in Elizabeth's backyard.
