About our home

Hello there
I am Carol an artist/designer, and my husband Mike is a world squash referee .We are avid DIY ers always doing some project or other, so things are always changing ,right now it’s a shabby chic boho look .......we love a relaxed lived in and loved feel ... We are originally from Ireland and England.....Our home is in a beachy quiet residential neighbourhood . We have 4 grownup children (I say that loosely) 3 live here in USA , one in Geneva , .with 10 grandkids ... We are mostly relaxed about our home... its vintage styled and is clean & comfortable, ITS CLEAN NOT PRISTINE .. ...not to much is precious. We would like you to feel completely at home here during your stay .Our only gripe would be someone smoking in our home. Our son lives in the next town and would be happy to answer any questions you might have .. We had a brilliant swap with a couple in Brittany and a couple in Cognac ... also a castle in Ireland ...swapping really is a great way to see new places...we were featured in a local news magazine,22179?
