I operate a consulting and contracting company in Cochrane (just outside Calgary). My wife and I have two children who keep us busy with all their activities. When I`m not busy with work or the kids I like to try to stay active. I play hockey, ski, mountain bike as well as being a member of the local search and rescue group.
When we were younger, my wife and I had plans to travel quite a bit. We have traveled to Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Dominican Republic, France and England as well as up and down the west coast of Canada and the US. Although our plans of visiting the rest of the world by long excursions were put on hold by family commitments,we are still trying to see what we can in short vacations. Our style of traveling is one where we like to discover the way people in an area live as well as seeing the sites. We like talking to other travelers about their experiences because we have found that we have had some fantastic experiences based on the recomendations of others rather than just following the guide books. Although we still travel on a budget, we have outgrown the hostel scene (especially when taveling with the kids). That`s why this type of service appeals to us.
As guests in your properties, we would be quiet and clean. We understand that we are sharing someone else`s property and that it`s not just a hotel room. Although we are new to this type of accommodation, we do find the concept appealing. We are even considering opening a part of our home as accomodation for travelers during certain times of the year.
We look forward to visiting your area and staying in your properties.
