We have a family of 5 children all under the age of 14 and as young as 2 - we all loved David, Varley (his dog) and his home. David is a wonderful host who cannot do enough for you. David's property extends all the way down to a private beach and which we all enjoyed. The bay water was passive and the water shallow for 100 metres, nothing more than waist deep. Perfect for snorkelling among the reef. The indoor pool was an exciting activity for the children, who couldn't wait to get up in the morning and swing on the rope into the water. Thank you for making your home available David, it was a real treat.

Currently doing some part-time engineering consultancy, mucking about building things with 3D printers, CNC mills and a new desktop PCB prototyping machine, and meeting lots of really wonderful people through Airbnb, where I get to practice the domestic arts of brewing Brazilian coffee, cooking up bacon & egg breakfasts, and handling loads of washing and making beds.
Ok, I could do without that last one!

In the off season I spend time in our other house in Brazil, which we are also setting up on Airbnb. Come and visit!
