AirBnB recommends that both hosts and guests create a personal profile about themselves. We’ve created this message so that you will know a little more about our passion and lifetime commitment.
First and foremost we believe a home should feel comfortable. For years we've heard the saying “A home is where the heart is”—a place of love, acceptance, and nourishment. How can you feel nourished when you are freezing or burning up? How can you provide a loving environment for yourself and others if you are too busy fighting the elements?
Our EcoBuilt Efficient Building design retains the best environment for living while minimizing the consumption and waste of energy. Over the past three decades we have proven over and over that our energy efficient methods and systems work better and are more cost-effective to operate than conventionally built structures.
It is baffling to know that people will go out of their way to save a few pennies on a gallon of gasoline and at the same time live in a home that is wasting as much as 50% or more of the energy it consumes every year.
Being a host is very rewarding. We get satisfaction from knowing that our guests are experiencing comfort inside a building in a way they’ve probably never experienced before. It is our life’s mission to show people that it’s possible to profit from the power of efficiency.
