Retired Air Force helicopter pilot now a manager at a large southern law firm. My wife is an artist from South Africa and we both enjoy travel around the world...typically we enjoy an annual visit to South Africa. However we both have traveled throughout Europe, the Middle East, and Africa; enjoying meeting and sharing experiences with others. That is why we enjoy using Airbnb for our own travels as well.

We love good food and cooking, traveling, meeting people of different cultures and countries. We also enjoy the arts and theater.

We are adventurous travelers and are open for new experiences. Recently, we visited New Orleans with our German friend and love to introduce people to our world as well!

Mariana's favorite destinations are the Middle East, Israel, Egypt, Istanbul and Jordan. (and South Africa, now that she is living here!) She feels at home in Amsterdam, being from Dutch descendants. I love my European travels in general and been traveling to Italy, France, UK, Germany, Ireland, Spain, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, Switzerland, Morocco and Iceland. Recently we've been to Panama and we are going to Spain in September.
Things we cannot live without....coffee, books, good food, painting and traveling!
When we travel, we like to rent a car, an apartment or home and explore the area on our own. We love our basic luxuries like a comfortable bed, bath/shower, good kitchen to prepare our meals and an apartment with a view is always a bonus.

We like to think of ourselves as caring hosts and being there for you to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. We are easy going, but respect your privacy. We will try to meet you personally when check-in, we will be on call when you need us, but we will give you the space and privacy you want. If possible, we like to introduce you to some unique South African dishes or treats!
Our motto?...Treat others the way you want to be treated. And that is the motto we used in presenting the Meerkat Manor for YOU. We hope you will enjoy sharing it with us.
