I live with my husband, our four children, and our beloved dog Charlie Bear in Manhattan Beach California. I grew up on Vancouver Island BC, I love trees, the ocean, quiet spaces and have a deep appreciation for the way in which nature enriches our lives. My husband and I love to create experiences for our children and family at large. We also love to get away together, just the two of us adventuring. We read, I love to cook and he loves to eat, we like to hike, swim, make that perfect cup of coffee :) and discover new places together. What we can't live without: our loved ones, Christmas with family, coffee, and delicious food shared with friends. Our style of traveling is diverse: I travel to various cities for work and so for vacations we focus on quiet natural settings, quaint spaces either in the forest or near the ocean. Our appreciation for you allowing us to enjoy your home will translate into caring for your space as if it were our own.
