I am a small-business owner in Seattle, where I live with my husband and two spoiled cats. I am an avid franchophile who loves to cook, eat, and travel. My husband and I are easy-going guests who have rented apartments, through other agencies, all over the world. We love animals, miss ours terribly while we are away, and don't mind staying in homes that have them. As a note, we are not messy or irritable guests, and we appreciate you opening your home/space to us. La vie est belle!
