Hi! I'm Cynthia and my husband Derek and I are your hosts. We are parents to a happy toddler (Willem) and a new born (Hugo).
In the pre-baby years, Derek and I loved to travel (whenever our schedules would allow) but travelling with Willem brings a new sense of wonder (and organization) to our lives. Hosting with AirBnB lets us reconnect with our wanderlust through our guests. Our favourite trip together was walking on the Chemin de Saint Jacques through the French countryside, staying in B&Bs and meeting other hikers along the way.
As a host, Air BnB appeals to me because I know you'll see things about Ottawa that I love. Insiders know the best things to see, and the best way to see them. Our location is also terrific.
As a guest, Air BnB appeals to me because we get to know locals, stay in a home-like environment, have the opportunity to prepare our own meals, and can hopefully find accommodations that would allow both Derek and I and Willem to sleep comfortably before taking in our new environs.
We live and work in downtown Ottawa, are active cyclists and runners, I practice yoga, and both Derek and I have been known to be involved in politics.
I can speak for my family when I say we are friendly and respectful hosts who would love to meet you!
Please let me know if you have any questions.
