I'm Kathryn, an Australian-born interior designer married to Charles, an America-born CEO. We have lived and worked all over the world and we now call the USA home. We live 40 minutes north of San Francisco in a beautiful hilltop retreat. Charles has two adult children who live in the UK.
We travel extensively and prefer to stay in properties that feel like 'home' rather than stay in hotels. As we're relatively newly settled in the USA we have a long 'wish list' of places to visit on home soil. We love the performing arts and are patrons of several theatre companies. We also have a passion for exploring the great outdoors with our two dogs, and of course, we love visiting family and friends in the far-flung corners of the globe.
During his many years living in London Charles rented-out his own property to the vacation market - so we know how wonderfully it works from both sides.
We are mature, cheerful and respectful people (both non-smokers) who will take good care of any property we visit. If traveling with our pets we ensure they are beautifully behaved in our home away from home.
