We are a couple based in Sydney, NSW.
We are both professional, kindhearted and always up for a laugh. We have travelled quite extensively, both as a couple and individually, to many corners of the world.
Blake is a scientist with a PHD. He plays American football and has a penchant for interesting beers and whiskeys! Samantha has a degree in Applied Linguistics and is currently completing a masters in Publishing; she currently works for a not-for-profit organisation and a fashion magazine, working on visual art projects in her spare time.
When it comes to traveling, we enjoy the DIY approach. We book everything ourselves, avoid tours, explore places ourselves, hire cars or bikes and like to get off the beaten track whenever possible.
As hosts, we like to think we are very thoughtful. You can expect that everything in our apartment is clean. In return, we expect following of our rules and guidelines, and some respect when it comes to our property.
We haven't really had a negative experience renting places, but have had one experience whilst hosting that has left a little bit of a bad taste in our mouths. However, we tend to lean towards the brighter side of life and like to think that this was an exception to the rule - we like to think that the majority of people are decent!
