cottage 19: Sukavati

Tucked behind a hill near the center of the valley, Sukavati is at once isolated and easily accessible. The high ceilings and bright cheerful colors uplift the mind and heart. This simple cottage functions well for two people who wish to do retreat separately yet in close proximity.

A screened-in porch spans the length of the cottage providing individual access to the two bedrooms and kitchen. An outdoor shower and vaulted privy toilet are just a short walk away. If you are  looking for the deep peace of minimal electrical wiring this is the cottage for you. Most of the light is provided by solar charged lamps.
