I am retired (yippee!) American Airlines. My husband JR and I love having guests in our home. JR plays guitar for fun and created beautiful landscapes for a living until he, too, retired.
We have been hosting with Airbnb since 2011. Joe Gebbia, one of the founders of Airbnb, came through Tucson that year and stayed with us. He left us a glowing review and we've been collecting them ever since. This is FUN!
Travel is in our blood. We have been on some great trips and especially love Mexico, Guatemala, Spain and France. We have family in Madison, WI and love to visit there too. There are so many places yet to experience and our bucket list is long. We have done some house swaps and that is a great way to experience life in another culture, especially when that swap takes us away from Tucson in the summer.
We can't travel all the time, so lucky for us that we live in one of the most beautiful places on earth...the Sonoran desert. We both love to immerse ourselves in creative projects here at home and so our surroundings have become this endless Home Improvement Project. We figured out a long time ago that we like the process more than the end result, and we'll never ever run out of ideas.
There is usually music around this house. JR is often working on a blues song or jazzy instrumental and he loves an audience. Even better he loves to jam with anyone who will join him.
A few years ago we fell in love with a spot on the Sea of Cortez in Mexico's Baja Peninsula. This has become our most recent and most thrilling project. JR is building us a casita there and we hope to share it with Airbnb guests as well as friends and family in the foreseeable future.
Here at home, Tucson has fabulous hiking trails so we hike em. There are wonderful yoga studios so I vinyasa in em. Biking trails abound and we like to do that too.
Our dog Kitty and puppy Poncho get along well with people. They may bark when you first arrive but they are all bark, no bite.
So, there. Now you have a little info about us. Come on down!
