I really enjoyed staying at Darva's place. Darva and her husband are two very friendly hosts that made me feel at home. The house was both beautiful and spotless, very cozy. I enjoyed conversation with both Brett and Darva and always felt welcomed. I also became good friends with their cat maple. I would recommend this place to anyone!

Response from Darva:
Thanks Shawn! It was lovely meeting you and being encouraged to eat more healthily!! You know - I washed the sheets, made up the bed and never thought about the oil at all. So, it must have washed out because I didn't see it. No worries! :)

Brett and Darva welcomed us to their lovely home. We did encounter a few issues: the room was advertised as having a private bathroom and a queen size bed. It was in fact a full-sized bed and a bathroom down the hall. Also, it would have been nice to know they have two cats in the home. One of us has a cat allergy.

Response from Darva:
Hello Kevin and Phyllis, Thank you for staying with us as you took your children to my much loved college! I regret that you experienced some disappointments. We do clearly state that we have a cat: From the listing: "We have a cat who loves her master and pays attention mostly to him - who happens to be my husband Brett. Located in a small, tree lined, quiet development with plenty of outdoor green space. Guest access: You will have access to the house bathroom complete with tub, shower, sink and W.C. " So far, I haven't had a person interpret it to mean your own private en suite bathroom. I hope all else was wonderful! Darva Kinney

I'm just a vagabond at heart...
My husband and I love to travel. For me it started by growing up in Europe. Now I rarely leave home with out my passport, just maybe an opportunity could present itself, and I'll be prepared! We love the hustle and bustle of busy cities and the exact opposite: living life in the sleepiest of villages.

Traveling in the middle east, the UAE and Oman have been my most fascinating stays. The rocky countrysides, miles of sandy deserts, stark simplicity and then just around the corner the grandeur, scents and tastes all captivate me beyond words.

In the US my favorite spot of all is my small camp in East Dover, VT - enjoying an off grid life in the simple lane. I couldn't be more satisfied and very, very thankful for the Ice Pond Camp. It's a juxtaposition from my everyday life, and it perfectly feeds my soul.

One of my favorite words in the English language is: "yet". As in:
- I haven't lived there "yet"- , or - I haven't seen, experienced, eaten, visited, smelled, touched or been there "yet"- . My bucket list is long and full, and to some it may be a little unique, I haven't lived all there is to live, -YET!

A few summers ago my husband and I enjoyed a great trip (using airbnb home stays) to Austria & Switzerland and celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary. We have 2 grown daughters who live a few hours away. Our cat Chester, house guests and my mom, "gramma" keep the house lively even while we are away.

Staying with Airbnb hosts has provided a wonderful, interesting and cost effective travel - we've stayed in homes in Austria, Germany, London, Ireland, Puerto Rico and various places in the US. I thoroughly enjoy hosting people as well. God has given us a fun and exciting life, we are thankful to be right in the middle of purposefully enjoying and living it!
