Hi there, I am a dual citizen, Canadian and US, living the majority of my time in sunny Henderson, Nevada. For over 30 years I have been designing interiors for hundreds of clients in the southern Nevada, California and as far east as Massachusetts. We love spending about 2 months out of the year on Bowen Island whether upgrading, maintaining, deep cleaning, or relaxing we feel as though we have the best of both worlds.
I love offering our home to Bowen guests and providing the best of comforts and amenities. We value all feedback from our guests and use critiques to perfect our property. Who is better than our guests to suggest details that would make their stay even better. After 10 years our goal is still the illusive high bar of "perfection."
