About the OwnerBy far my all time favorite thing to do is to be a dad to my little boys. If only we could all have the awe and excitement they have for discovering the amazing universe we live in. Somehow as adults we just forget. My boys are also lucky to have the most amazing mom in the world, my wife Michelle who will go to the ends of the earth for them. I really love to be outdoors and whenever I can I am out there gardening and tending to our little botanical paradise. I love the tropics and love to travel to far away places like Southeast Asia, the islands, Thailand, well, any place tropical. I aspire to be open minded and I like to hang out with others that share that aspiration. As a host, I'd like to get to know my guests and do my best to be a good host that will make their stay better and more fun. I am always curious to meet world travelers from other countries.
