Hi this is Sam.
I am in my early fifties, married with two adult daughters. I normally travel with my wife Carol, sometimes Hannah and/or Sally will join us.
We have a home in downtown Toronto, where we both work. Carol, Pilates instructing, myself retouching. A lot of the time we get around by bicycle. We are avid sailors, racing and cruising on Lake Ontario and the western St.Laurence on our C&C 3/4 ton sloop.
When visiting another city we prefer to stay in someone's home as apposed to a hotel. We have found the travel experience is much richer, and warmer when returning from exploring to the comforts, decor and charm of a cared for home.
We very much enjoy the feeling and benefits of being in a neighbourhood, shopping there and occasionally cooking a meal. There is such a thing as resto fatigue.
We have used AirBnB a few times now, it has worked out well for us.
If we stay at your home, you can count on us to care for it as we would our own, respecting your wishes as well as those of your neighbours.
It's all about trust.
