We also have a a Portuguese water dog, very friendly, hypo-allergenic, who you will see in the back yard sometimes.
We trust you to take care of our property as they would your own and to treat us and our neighbors with the same respect we will have for you.
We appreciate you keeping the noise level down, esp after 11pm, to be thoughtful of our neighbors.
I am a retired nurse (30 years in public health), and my husband, Chris, is retired from the restaurant business. We are an "older" couple with young hearts. We have a Portuguese Water Dog (as of 10/28/16) who is hypo allergenic, friendly and will sometimes be in the back yard. We are both very active, and have kept ourselves fit. I paddle on a competitive Dragonboat team (want to come paddle?), and my husband is a big tennis player (up for a game?). We spend a lot of time with our grandchildren, lots of soccer, baseball and softball games! We enjoy dancing, and entertaining our friends, cooking cuisines from the countries we have visited . We love to travel; Italy, France, Spain, Croatia, Mexico , Canada, US. I have also been to Vietnam, Turkey, Bhutan, Bankok, parts of Africa,Central and South America . In Europe we have enjoyed staying in Airbnb places as well as pension type of lodgings.We love walking around and getting to know the areas we visit. Life is what you make of it every moment, and it really IS about the journey.
I speak some Spanish, though am certainly not fluent. Pero, si habla despacio, puedo entender algos.
