About the Host, Doug & Claudia
A little about us - Doug and Claudia met in late September 2001, and have been together ever since. Doug is originally from Wisconsin and Claudia is from Sao Paulo, Brazil. Our helper, little Olivia, is a native New Yorker.
We're both educated, neat professionals who've decided to make New York our home. Like you, we enjoy visiting new places whenever we can - Paris and Northern Spain last year. We're believers in what airbnb offers, and have enjoyed the hospitality we've received in the homes of others far more than anything that can be found in a five-star hotel.
