Larry and I are responsible retired professionals(he a senior software exec, U.S. Navy commander; I a mgt. development exec, ESOL teacher) as well as current home owners and caring pet lovers. We are non-smoking, in-shape hikers who know how to take good care of your home, your grounds, and especially your pets. 

Walks, cuddles, attention---all are things we enjoy doing and giving, perhaps because we miss our now deceased pets so much. We travel a lot, so, instead of being unfair to a new dog or cat, we lavish our affection on your lovely animals. 

Both of us work from home on our writing and photography and would be on the premises throughout our stay in your home. We typically divide our year between our home, named Quinta Elena, in San Pancho, Nayarit, Mexico, and elsewhere. "Elsewhere" always includes frequent trips to California where our children and grandchildren live (San Jose, Santa Cruz, Long Beach, and Penryn).

Larry goes Scuba diving with a group that visits dive resorts around the world, and I sometimes come along to snorkel and take in the sights. We also own a small travel trailer in which we have traversed the U.S. and Canada several times. We always have a next trip in the works. Next up are Chile and Argentina.

We are open to house swaps, too, and not necessarily at the same time, given that our high season(Nov.-April) might be different from yours. If you Google both "Quinta Elena" and "A Song for San Pancho," you can check out our house and village.

After 30 years of living and working in CA and the Puerto Vallarta area, as well as six years on this site, we've accumulated many references. We've listed some of them on this site. We would also be happy to speak with you via video chat. Thanks so much for considering us.
