I'm a landscape designer and contractor. My passion is to build beautiful gardens, that truly enrich the lives of the homeowners. I feel incredibly lucky to be able to spend my work days outdoors. I've been super, duper happily married for many years, and my South African husband Howard is my best friend and constant traveling companion. Since he is an architect and builder, together we appreciate all aspects of the built environment. We collect art whenever time and budget allow. We are happiest outside, participating in a variety of active sports. Together, we hope to continue our explorations of this gorgeous earth, meeting and getting to know people of different cultures at every opportunity. Our two children, now grown, turned us onto Airbnb, and we are so glad they did ! As our son lives in London, and our daughter in LA, we must travel to see them. We search for super simple and clean, allergen-free accommodation (I have become a bit asthmatic). As guests in your home, you will find us very respectful of your property and extremely appreciative of your efforts to provide a comfortable stay. We are committed to taking excellent care of your home, and we could only treat it as if it were our own !
