“My love of travelling has taken me all over the world, and I’ve seen my fair share of hotels and Airbnb houses on my travels. As a host and owner of holiday rentals, I can’t wait to show fellow travellers the same great hospitality that I have received across the globe. Some of my interests include learning new DIY skills, listening to music, paddleboarding and exploring the countryside on foot and bike with my family.”
