About Me
We are an academic couple close to retirement and want to spend several winter months in southern California. Aidan and I both work at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver. We have raised three kids and many pets in our house and have previously rented it during our sabbaticals and absences. We are house proud, but also relaxed about kids and pets.
