Hi, I'm your host, Erik MacPeek. I am a creative consultant-graphic designer with skills in renovation carpentry – frequently put to good use maintaining the rental listings here on AirBnB. Since we began listing our properties on the site, we have met all kinds of great people along the way!
Originally from southeastern Connecticut, I now live full-time in Tampa, Florida, with my Floridian wife, 3 kids and various pets. We love to travel and explore the world together and with our children, from the Caribbean to China! In the summer, we always migrate up to New England to spend time with family, friends and enjoy the New England coastline and great seafood! There in Stonington – on the southeastern Connecticut coastline – we all try to congregate each summer on my family's 100 year-old summer retreat called Sea Acres. It consists of three cottages on four acres, looking out over a salt-marsh cove and across Fisher's Island and Long Island Sounds. We are backed by a nature conservancy, and love the wildlife we see there every day (chipmunks, dozens of bird species, woodchucks, skunk, fox, deer and an occasional coyote).
In Florida we also have listed 2 little vintage beach trailers on the coastal barrier island of Anna Maria, with white powdery sand beaches. Those are often available summer through fall on Airbnb, but they are always booked a year in advance for the winter months when all the snowbirds come down to flee the cold weather.
As a creative person and stickler for details, I make sure my rentals are unique, comfortable and well stocked. My feeling is that people appreciate the small details, like nice dishes and linens, good hospitality and a little snack when they first arrive. These were not furnished or decorated for the rental market, but as our second homes, and they have unique touches throughout, including pieces such as my great grandmother's sea chest from Ireland, grandpa's ship's wheel and my wife's grandmother's walnut table.
We are gardeners both here and in New England, and over the years have planted more than 1,000 daffodil bulbs at the Stonington, CT property, a real sight to see in early spring.
We have very much enjoyed working with Airbnb, and use them ourselves when we travel. My recent trip to Norway included staying in a fabulous AirBnB apartment near downtown Oslo. It was in a great historic area just a 10 minute walk from downtown... fantastic.
Enjoy your stay and please sign the guest book!
