This party posted the following feedback for me:
'Janette Nation is a dear friend living in my neighbourhood, who shares a love of travel and learning. She is a retired lawyer, musician and explorer. Janette has recently renovated her beautiful home (which is within cycling distance of the local university)and is keen to maximize its use and function. Her home and garden are very clean and well maintained. She has eclectic interests, these are apparent in her house, which is full of books and art works. I am sure anyone wishing to rent her home will be very happy with the state of the home and its location. '

About Me
I am a retired professional woman, originally from Australia, and can now travel for extended periods. Looking for responsible, respectful people and preferably without young children as the odd deer passes through the yard, although it is just 5 minutes from downtown. Strict non-smoking policy and no pets.
