Proud mom of five, wife of 37 years, passionate gr’ma of 6, love the outdoors, beach, surfing ,skiing, hiking, snorkling, adventuring and watching my kids and grandkids have a great time! My husband Kenny is a commercial fisherman and has logged over 3000 crossings of the Santa Barbara Channel. Want to experience the least visited National Park in the United States with someone who knows them more intimately than anyone? He will take you! My oldest daughter and her husband live in Costa Rica so we spend several months a year with them enjoying my grandkids. Currnently we have a daughter in Africa, and a son in Chicago so traveling is an exciting way to keep our far flung family connected. Our home Casa Sonrisa has been the perfect place to raise a fun loving family and now host people from around the globe. With huge windows overlooking beautiful Santa Barbara and lots of outdoor space we have been blessed by enjoying our little slice of seaside heaven and now love to share it with others. When we travel we don’t mind simple accommodations though a clean and comfy bed is important to me. We like to go off the beaten track, don’t mind public transportation. Would rather travel economically than not travel at all. We love an adventure and would consider a trade for your vacation home.
