Harry and I are native Santa Barbarians and grew up in the same sand box (Mesa Lane beach). I am a Registered Nurse, but travel via land and air to monitor clinical trials. Harry has been a commercial fisherman/diver for over 20 years which has taken him all over the pacific coast and Alaska. Sometimes I can spot him heading to the islands from my plane departing Santa Barbara.
We both love the outdoors and when we travel have stayed in many vacation homes from rustic huts in the jungle, to modern houses on the sand and enjoy being able to cook a meal when we want. Location is what is important to us and we look forward to being Airbnb guests in the near future.
For the past 8 years we have been living together in 2 separate houses. Not conventional, but it works for us. We both love our homes. We have tried renting one or the other out at different times, but Airbnb seems to the best option to share our homes, but keep them too.
