Description

We are a Canadian professional couple – now retired and actively engaged in other pursuits. We plan to spend January through March 2024 in Washington, DC, and are looking to rent/home-sit a 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment or townhouse in Georgetown, Foggy Bottom or Dupont Circle, with easy access to metro and a high walk score. We have excellent references. My husband, Ken, has a PhD in Economics from Harvard University and is just winding down an active consulting practice. I was an executive in the Canadian Federal government and served as the Director for Canada at the Inter-American Development Bank in Washington DC for six years before retiring from public service. We enjoy books, music, theatre, hiking/walking, and travel. We have travelled widely in Europe, Asia and North America. Some of our favourite places and pastimes in DC include concerts at the Kennedy Center, author talks at Politics and Prose, Sunday afternoon music performances at the Phillips Gallery, visits to the Kennedy Centre, browsing the stacks at Second Story Books, visits to the Smithsonian museums, walking along the C&O Canal Towpath... Ken enjoys chess and gardening. I am a keen cook and an inexpert bridge player. We keep a meticulous home and would look after yours with the same care as we do ours.

About Me

I am looking to rent/house-sit for three months, January through March, to get away from winter in Ottawa. Now retired, I was an executive in the Canadian public service, including 6 years as the Executive Director for Canada at the Inter-American Development Bank in Washington DC. I have excellent references and would take meticulous care of your home. My preference is for a house/apartment with at least 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, in a neighbourhood that is “walkable”, with easy access to public transportation and amenities. My husband and I are well-travelled (US, Europe, Asia & the Caribbean), and have lived and worked internationally. Our professional interests are public policy, economics and international development. We enjoy art, theatre, reading, walking and hiking.
