The rooms at the Maris Stella Retreat Center are shared dorm-style. After August 15, we will post the assigned rooms for those who are staying at Maris Stella.

The beautiful homes on the bay that we have rented (one is named "Holy Family" and the other "St. Anne") at the Maris Stella Retreat Center are clean, cozy, and comfortable. But Maris Stella is shared housing. Please be aware of the following:

  • There are 23 beds on-site at the Maris Stella Retreat Center available to us.
  • The accommodations are shared, with 2, 3, or 4 beds per room. All beds are singles.
  • There are enough bathrooms and showers for everyone - usually 1 or 2 on each floor. There are also extra showers in the bathhouse and an outdoor shower near the beach.
  • You are expected to bring your own towels and toiletries. We will have Maris Stella provide sheets and pillows.
  • The rooms don't have room numbers, so we've named them after Tai Chi styles and/or Tai Chi Historical Figures.
  • Beds will be reserved for the weekend on a first-come, first-serve basis, and are assigned by CJ Rhoads on August 15, 2018.
  • Attempts will be made to keep couples together and you can request a specific roommate if they are already registered and reciprocate, but no promises can be made.
  • If on August 15 we have less than 15 reservations, we will give up St. Anne's and only rent Holy Family.
