When we travel we love variety.  We will stay at a nice hotel one night an Airbnb the next. We love renting homes for longer periods of time. Personality and uniqueness adds to our travel experience. Here is a listing of some of our favorite lodgings.

United States: 

Southern California:



  • Hotel Saint Pierre: French Quarter, New Orleans  The hotel is a combination of several historic buildings in the French Quarter.Every room is charming and walking distance to everything.


  • Timberline Lodge, Mt. Hood:  Made famous in the movie “The Shining” the historic lodge literally sits at the base of Mt. Hood.















South America: Peru




  • Airbnb Penthouse – 3 Blocks from the Plaza.  Located in the old colonial core of San Blas, this cute little apartment was perfect.  It’s a little bit of a hike from the main plaza but worth it.  Yolanda the host was sweet.
  • Airbnb: #1 Furnished 2 Br 2 baths Cottage:  we rented from Monica who was extremely helpful.  Cute place with 2 rooms and a nice kitchen.  Walking distance to everything.

  • Nanaimo:  Airbnb – Breathtaking views from Sundeck  The view was indeed terrific and a nice deck to sit on.  The only negative was it sat on the highway and can be loud.

  • Vancouver: Airbnb Luxury 2 BR False Creek Water View,  The view alone was well worth it.  Great location and beautiful view.
