My husband Robert, two grown children, Jeremy & Bethany and grandkids and I have lived in Astoria Oregon for 7 years, moving here from Santa Fe NM. We were looking for a place with a sense of community and found it in Astoria. We restored two homes and loved that Astoria is referred to as a "Little San Francisco" because of its many historical homes (and steep hills). We are work at home grandparents of two. We are involved in our community in many ways and another family business in addition to Air BnB keeps us very busy. I am an author, enjoy gardening, cooking, writing and reading. Robert is involved in many projects mostly having to do with sustainable real estate development. We like to travel together to different places in Oregon and beyond when we get the chance. When I look out my windows at the beauty that surrounds me here in Astoria, I am very grateful and glad to be living here. It is a special place and I love sharing that with our visitors. Since most people have a good idea of what they want to do here, we have a hands-off style of hosting, but are only a phone call away for information, dinner recommendations or as close as the back fence, so to speak, for a chat.
