I'm retired from telecom company Verizon; married to lovely wife Valerie for 35 years. Spend tons of time with grandsons, doing things little kids like. Travelling to Europe for first time in 40 years; first time for my Italian-American wife. Visiting Rome, Florence and Venice and want apartment vs. hotel living. Very respectful of our guest status in your home.
UPDATE: Did Italy in 2012 and London/Paris in 2013, all living in HomeAway properties, all of which were excellent. We'll be back. The economies and the lifestyle of HomeAway living cannot be beat!
