About Our Family:
We are a family of 4 with kids busy in hockey (so Canadian right?) and other activities. We treasure our family holiday time and take several trips a year. Now that kids are getting older (14 and 12) we want to get in as much travel as possible before kids no longer want to travel with us! We value our down time and therefore take a lot of pride in our home as it acts as our sanctuary from busy days. We have rented private villas in the Caribbean and homes elsewhere countless times and always treat rentals as respectfully as we would our own home. We are very tidy people (some say we have a little OCD?) but that's what you want when someone stays in your home!! Hope we can find a mutually enjoyable exchange that will create adventures and memories for our family and yours!

Gordon works in the financial industry and Donna is a stay at home Mom soon looking to return to work in finance. We are all fluent in English and French.
