Interaktion mit Gästen
Interaction with guests will vary according to each party's inclination; I prefer to be approached rather than intruding on guests! I am happy to share 26 years of local knowledge with guests if they wish. A yoga class and dinners may be available for a donation (suggest $20 per person) and two or three days advance notice. There is a perfectly adequate outdoor kitchen behind the Casita furnished with the basics such as olive oil, coffee, tea, powdered creamer, a cooler (bring your own ice) salt & pepper etc.

Although my name is Katherine, it feels very formal to me and I am accustomed to going by the nickname "kak" (silly names leftover from boarding school in Switzerland). I am an advocate of sustainable, low environmental impact, mindful living. I spend part of the year at my home in Utah and part of the year working abroad on sailboats. I enjoy yoga (am a certified instructor) and outdoor escapades; gardening and cooking. Southern Utah is a huge playground for hikers, canyoneers and back country adventurers. With 26 years of galavanting around here I can provide much information on all of the above.
I have hosted and surfed on couches and met some wonderful people. I also have work-traded in New Zealand, India and Hawaii. In my opinion, these networks of accomodation are magical for travelers who wish to get out of the tourist bubble and be exposed to the cultural richness of a place; local personalities and off the beaten track experiences.
