Entrepreneur, dog rescuer & traveler. I've lived here all my life and I love to stay at short term rentals (rather than hotels). That means you'll get high service and local recommendations! I love meeting new people and entertaining guests! Feel free to book or message me first. I'm happy to answer any specific questions in advance. By day, I am a small business owner and fitness enthusiast. By night, I enjoy fine dining and video games. I am a well traveled STR guest. I know what a host should do to create a comfortable guest experience. My favorite countries visited: Canada, Amsterdam, France, Mexico
