We love the outdoors - especially relatively pristine and quiet, natural environments with wildlife. We love cosmopolitan cities as well and we are fortunate to have a Victorian home in San Francisco in addition to our ocean view home on the Pacific Coast at Bodega Bay. We appreciate good food, good books, good music, good movies, and global travel. We are in the ultra-premium wine business so we love good wine too. We have lived around the globe so we do our best to make travelers feel at home in our homes.
