As the carpet is brand new, we would appreciate shoes left just outside the room - thanks!
Lisa is a transplanted American (most recently from Queensland) married to British born Christopher whose last home was Normandie France.
We are both well travelled, love music, vintage homes, food & wine! We love living in New Zealand and have been in our church now for 5 years. We feel it needs to be shared with others and since we love to cook and entertain, Airbnb sounded like the perfect fit for us. We have used Airbnb in NZ as well as in the US. Christopher is fluent in French, but he can also speak some Spanish, German and Italian. Lisa knows some French and American Sign Language.
