We are from Houston, Texas. My family all live in the Bay Area of San Francisco. We have a wonderful 10 year old daughter who loves all her cousins. In summers and sometimes in winters, we stay in our log home in Estes Park and enjoy the Rocky Mountain National Park. We are retired and love to take it easy. The extra income helps offset our mortgage and up keep costs. Airbnb is a great way to travel as you get 3-5 times the space of a hotel and save on cooking for your selves. I love to cook. You get great deals for excellent homes. We also get to stay longer at more reasonable prices and get to explore the places better in a more relaxed fashion. We love watching movies. We like contemporary Jazz and me and my daughter also like Pop music. We love clean places as we keep ours very clean. We care for people's homes just as we do for ours. Our daughter is homeschooled and very well behaved. My husband Kaiser's motto is "Live life to the fullest." My motto is "Knowledge is the antidote to fear." My daughter's motto is the Golden Rule "Do unto others as you would do to yourself." Our favorite travel destinations were Paris, Santorini in Greece, London, New Zealand and Australia. I also love the Philippines. We eat any and all foods and love to explore different cultures and foods. As a host we like people to respect our homes and live in it gently and take care of it as we do when we stay in other people's homes. We provide our guests with amenities that they will need for their stay and respond to their needs as efficiently as we can.
