Working professional, married with grown children, excited to travel when I can- mostly to California, Arizona, New York & Minnesota to visit family & friends, but dreaming of far off places like Europe someday... I prefer staying in a neighborhood, relaxing as if it were my home, and connecting with the neighborhood. I'm very respectful & quiet as a guest, I will leave your place as clean as I found it will, even water your plants. Love suggestions for trying out your favorite restaurants and coffee places, and getting to know the jewels of your neighborhood. I have stayed in many Airbnb homes along with my husband, Lawrence Smith who has a separate profile on Airbnb.
