My husband and I have two grown children, one who lives in Santa Monica and one who lives in PA, and we love to travel. He also has many opportunities to travel with his career, especially in Europe. I am a middle school teacher, on sabbatical for the spring of 2013 and will be joining him as much as possible. Several years ago we started staying at owner-owned rentals and love it. We are really, really great guests and will treat your home as if it is ours (and we take really good care of our stuff!). We love to sail, hike, have started a yoga practice, and are huge foodies. We are looking forward to all our 2013 adventures!
