Currently living in Ottawa due to my husband's work. We enjoy many outdoor activities like cycling, kayaking, and jogging that are offered in and around this very green city. I'm a photography and a film enthusiast. Together with my husband we like to discover antique markets, go dancing, go for dinners and we LOVE to travel. Personal favourites are Chicago, Toronto, and Paris, but there's yet so much more to discover and we're looking forward to lots of great experiences through Airbnb!
Having us as guests is pretty straightforward. What you see is what you get in communication as well as when you meet us/when we stay in an apartment. Over the years we've had great experiences with apartment rentals (with (website hidden) before we switched to Airbnb), but every once in a while our experience was so-so when we discovered that a place had been painted in a more positive light than the reality showed. That's where some of the questions come in that I ask prior to booking. Nothing unusual and just to ensure comfort and good value for money. Same rights for everyone: Ask away and we'll answer all your questions as a host, so you, too, can be at ease renting to us.
Here's my favourite quote: When asked by the society columnists how he handled the seating arrangements for all those who attended his dinner parties presidential advisor (to Woodrow Wilson and FDR) Bernhard Baruch was often quoted saying this: “I never bother about that. Those who matter don’t mind, and those who mind don't matter.”
