My husband, Joe, and I live in Connecticut with our two sons, Niko (18) and Alex (17). We love to travel and have been renting vacation rentals from HomeAway and VRBO in the US and internationally for almost 10 years. We purchased this two family home as an investment because we ultimately want retire in Plymouth because of the quality of life and the abundance of things to do. We initially were going to rent both apartments but my husband's parents (Joan and George) loved the area so much, they moved into the first floor apartment and now provide assistance to our guests. We look forward to sharing our home with you so that you can enjoy Plymouth too :)
