I'm a 57 year old, single, mother of 21 year old college boy, one dog and one cat. Originally from New York, college years in Seattle, now mostly from SF Bay Area. I've recently moved to Sonoma County where I do art/food/wellness events and retreats from my home in Santa Rosa.
When I travel I like a little luxury and a few treats but mostly relish the time and space to unwind. I like meeting local folks and if I have friends/family in the area I like doing things with them that they may be saving for excuse to do - a restaurant, gallery or natural spot.
BnB's allow for the combination of privacy and proximity of host and guest so its nice to work out the most comfortable arrangement for both.
