I work for Yosemite National Park in Vegetation and Ecological Restoration and my husband is employed with the Park as well- as head gardener for Yosemite Valley employee housing and offices. We are both close to 60, mature and responsible. Sometimes our adult daughters may accompany us on trips, but they are very mature and responsible. The older daughter, Izzi works for a non- profit group- that does advocacy for children in Foster Care, the younger- Lia is employed at Trader Joe's and seeking her teaching credential. We will take care of your home as if it was our own and we have some great references from (website hidden) rentals that we have made in the past year.We love to travel, but like feeling like we are at home- rather than in an impersonal hotel. We also like to be frugal and cook meals most of the time at home- though we realize part of the fun of traveling is eating out- it is just not possible to do that 3 times per day.
