Atención a los huéspedes
We will not be available in-person, but will be available via phone, text and email. We are very fast to respond - see reviews.
To be clear, this is our home. You will see our family photos on walls, clothes in our closets, etc. ;) The upside is that the house feels warm and comfy, and you'll have a fully stocked kitchen, loads of toys/games and generally feel at home. Before we accept guests, we like to feel comfortable with who will be in our home, so we like to read reviews or ask a few more questions than if it were just a rental property. I hope this isn't off-putting and you understand.
Several neighbors, nearby friends and repairman are available in-person if any issues arise (which has never happened).

I travel regularly, around the US, for business. I have lived abroad in Mexico, Europe and Central Asia. I've also traveled extensively throughout these regions for pleasure. I love traveling, meeting new people, visiting museums/art galleries, shopping, eating local foods and drinking local brews. We use Airbnb when we travel and have really enjoyed it.
I'm married and have two little girls that we like taking with us on our travels. I, and my girls, are bilingual (English/Spanish). We have made it an annual tradition to enroll our girls in school in Mexico for a few weeks during the summer in an effort to reinforce their language and cultural skills.
I'm an avid runner and novice swimmer. My husband likes to golf. We both like to bike ride. We're foodies and love live music. My favorite destination, so far, has been Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam.
We try to be as considerate as possible when we stay with family or even in hotels. I'd like the same consideration when we host. We're tidy, polite and organized. We like to explore new areas, outside of the tourist path, and are open to suggestions.
