A note on pricing: Mar Vista is dedicated to delighting our guests with a restorative, holistic wellness experience—complete with fresh, local meals. As many have already experienced at our local grocery stores, we, too, are affected by the increased cost of food & general operations. Resultantly, the cost per participant for our Weekend Wellness Retreats will increase. The 2023 prices are listed above. Our team is here to answer any and all questions on this adjustment, so please reach out to us at hello@marvistafarmandcottages.com.
