Where you’ll be

Portsmouth, Virginia, United States

Our 140 year old home was once a working farm. The entire neighborhood belonged to the house, and was parceled and sold off over time. The house does not fit the neighborhood because of this fact, but makes us very unique :-)

The street we live on (Vick Street) was named after the original owners of the home. The house was passed down from generation to generation, making Eric and myself up until 5 years ago when we bought the home ,the only other owners not related to the Vick’s to live here .Something we’re really proud of :-)

We live in a working class, blue collar neighborhood, it is very quiet and safe, and within walking distance to city park (area to run, barbecue, fish, golf, or play tennis).

There is a convenience store located right next door (2 min walk)
Nearest grocery stores are (Food Lion)which is a 10 minute walk .Lidl, Aldi, Walmart, Sams Club which is a 10 minute drive.

Anytime Fitness is also a 10 minute walk and located next to Food Lion.

We’re Nikki and Eric... I’m from the Isle Of Man ( small island in the Irish Sea. Known for Manx cats, and TT bike racing.
I have spent the last 30 years living in the US.
Some of my hobbies include interior design and furniture restoration.

Eric is from Tucson AZ, and is a retired US Army senior officer, currently working overseas for the DoD and enjoys tinkering with his 64' Mercury Merauder.

After 23 years of moving with the military, we decided to call VA home. We both currently live in Germany, but i spend half the year in VA, as being an active host is my first love.

We’re very friendly and love meeting new people from all walks of life (without being overbearing) and therefore decided to open our home to share a little of what our unique home has to offer.

We welcome EVERYONE.. regardless of Race, faith, political views and Sexual Orientation etc..We do not discriminate, nor do we tolerate it in return.

We’re also very laid back and we like to make fun of ourselves.. Life’s too short not to :-)

We look forward to hosting you!
