Over this last north, I've been able to go to so many soul reaching adventures and I'm so thankful for the work ya'll do in being able to provide this experience for so many inspiring people! I hope you have some restful family time in June! xoxo ” 


"It feels like home here.  You are all so welcoming and loving.  It’s so important to feel safe to be ourselves and express (especially as artists!) You are all so helpful and accommodating.  As a guest (a partner of an artist) and, I felt a part of a team.  The food is unbelievably tasty.  The day trips are experiences I won’t forget, (Rainmaker, Esterillos Beach).  You support such a kind community.  My heart is filled with love.  Love and blessings to your family and Mauser himself.”

I am inspired! ”

"Dear Heather, Kayla and Yuna! 

From the very first moment, I felt so welcomed by you. Thank you! And the house and the garden, the plants, the animals... they all were a huge inspiration and I drew a lot of it. Just the heat...was hard to stand... however, I had a great time! See you again in the future, here or in Berlin, Germany, or else-where on our beautiful planet. ”



"Thank you for providing such a beautiful space in which to create. The nature, food, room, friendliness, has all been amazing. I’m super grateful for all your hard work and for letting me come and work on my novel. This book is already 100% because of you. You're the best. ”

A million thank you's for you and all that you do. I am so grateful for this experience, and will hold it close to my heart for life.

All the best now & always."

"Heather and Kayla,

Muchas Gracias hard seems enough to say. Such a special place you have created here. It has been so restful and relaxed. Never a sense of pressure or direction to be productive buy you have created the best atmosphere for working and being creative! Thanks and thanks. ”


"Heather, Kayla, and Yuna.

Thank you so so much for the wonderful month got to spend at for your beautiful space. I came here with no expectations as to what I would create and the people I'd meet, but it was so much better than I could have hoped for. One month filled with female energy, safety, nourishing food, art, nature, poetry, connection and so much more. Love, love, love! Thank you so so much again, keep shining your beautiful lights!! Will be back! xxx”


"One month is to short of a time for the wonderful amazing experiences that Mauser EcoHouse has to offer. Beautiful home, beautiful environment and lasting memories! Thank you for the once in a lifetime adventure! Every day is a new day! Cheers-wanting the best life can give you and the Mauser EcoHouse foundation. ”


"Thank-you for a beautiful opportunity to work and connect to nature here @ Mauser. Many blessings to all of you who have created this place for many to enjoy. ”


"I'm sitting now in the same couch I say many times during my residency while editing my book (the one in the back outside). Listening to the sounds of nature as I write, and I have no words to express my gratitude for enabling this experience for me and many others. I had a much needed time to work on my book, connect with nature, and most importantly, connect with myself. Thank you for this. I wish you the best, and keep shining the way you do (I love your energy so much!) Hoping we will meet again,

Much love, ”


"Thank you Heather and Family for offering such a place for artists to work and play. Our month has gone by so quickly and as I reflect back it has been a great success. We have all accomplished a lot. So wonderful to have access to a beautiful garden and work from great to be so well fed at the end of the day with a tasty meal. Thank you so much for facilitating our site seeing adventures and for the many trips down the hill to the beach. Our time here will be remembered as a wonderful family time of creativity and sunshine. 

Best Regards, ”

"Dear Heather and the Mauser House Community,

My stay here was more than just wonderful. It helped me to separate a bit from my home and give me perspective on my artwork and my direction in my work. Finally on the last Friday before leaving woke up early (3am) to realize that my ideas about my work was flowing out of me. I started to brain storm until you showed up in the morning while I was making breakfast. Yes I make 2 small artworks here but just having the space & time to 'brain storm' ideal was ideal for me. This is what artist residencies do! Thank you! With a full heart! Love & Best Wishes"
