Sue & Denis are a retired Medical Laboratory Supervisor and Chartered Engineer / Vice President of a Swiss multinational engineering company.
We have lived and worked on 4 continents over the last 35 years, renting our UK homes out while we travel. Thus we are well used to taking care of other peoples homes and leaving them as good as when we arrive.
We retired 11 years ago and spent 3 years travelling the world. European summers were spent on our Dutch Steel Yacht in Holland & France and the winters in Australasia and the US.
We now live in Brampton. Our daughter and husband live in London with our 2 young grandsons. Our son and wife live near Newmarket with 2 horses.
We have also remodelled, upgraded and redecorated our home. This has emphasised low maintenance, comfortable, easy living with good entertainment & communication facilities that we and our HomeLink guests can enjoy.

Hva vi liker, hva vi ikke liker ... Her er våre preferanser og husordensregler.
We have had rented out our home previously for years whilst traveling & working globally, and so are used to preparing for your arrival. We typically do this by clearing out wardrobes, having a comprehensive guide to the home & locality and leaving you a starter pack of food, drink and toiletries so you can feel at home quickly.
We just ask that it is looked after as you would your own, as we will do the same with yours.
