I am retired from the School system where I worked with "challenged" students for many years. I love spending my new "free" time at our cottage by the lake. My husband (who is retired also) and I love to ski in the long cold winters and we enjoy good food, good wine, the outdoors and friends. Our eldest son lives in Reston, VA with his wife and son. Two daughters live in the UK (where I experienced airbnb for the first time!) One son lives locally.
We are an easygoing and happy couple (low maintenance!) who respect other peoples privacy and space. We rent our cottage in the summer for a few weeks to friends so we understand about "good" renters. I decided to rent one or two rooms in our large Oakville home. This indicates how much I like airbnb (thanks to my daughter who got me into it and the great Hosts I stayed with in UK & USA!) Now I can travel more often at an economical price and meet new people from around the world.....
