About

International garden tour company owner/former landscape designer/travel book author (Paul) and artist/photographer(Suzanne), Berkeley graduates, former London residents, anglophiles, active early 70's, seeking two-bedroom or larger house rental in or near Cambridge, August 1 till early September, 2021. Would also consider a home in or near Oxford for that same time period. Excellent references both sides of the Pond. Great Britain has played a major role in both our lives, starting in Berkeley in the '60's where we both studied English Lit, through our years living and working in London in the early '70's, writing/reading poetry and traveling the length and breadth of the country. In the early '80's I started Coopersmith's England, bringing small groups of horticulturally-inclined Americans to visit legendary British gardens and stately homes. (The company, now known as Coopersmith's One-of-a-Kind Tours, is in its 37th year.) Later this year we have an opportunity to return to London for four months, where Suzanne and I hope to spend many a happy hour at our favorite gardens, galleries and museums, while hanging out with old friends whom we've known since the '70's. As a sort of stepping stone to London, we'd love to spend a few weeks in either Cambridge or Oxford, neither of us ever having been to either fair city for more than a couple of days at a time. We've done numerous long-term holiday-home rentals, in the US, UK, and New Zealand. We are quiet, respectful people, who will look after your home as if it were our own (which is what we are doing as I write, in the hamlet of Gualala, along Northern California's spectacular. Mendocino County coast.)
