Ray and I are nature people, birders, gardeners, and like a quiet, simple pace of life with time to meditate, read and just be!! Ray is a recently retired firefighter, Wendy teaches piano to kids (and loves it!). We've rented cottages many times, and many places, through VRBO. We recently heard great reviews of AIRbnb, so this is our first try with it! We like to stay in a little home away from home when we travel, cook our own meals and hang out in a peaceful natural setting.
