About the Hosts
We’ve been hosting on Airbnb since about September 2014 and have discovered a niche in medical students.
Prior to doing Airbnb we hosted co-op students who were doing four month placements at the Royal Ottawa Hospital (they were often from University of Waterloo).
We stumbled into Airbnb when a co-op student cancelled at the last minute. The new person who responded to the ad for a 4 month co-op student turned out not to be a student at all… and 4 months turned into an entire year. We went without renting the room for a while but it just felt wrong to have an entire room sit unoccupied! So we tried Airbnb and were delighted to be able provide such a comfortable environment for medical students, residents and visiting fellows.
Darlene works from home as a digital marketer and Terry works long hours in construction so is away from home quite often. We’re always available by phone or text should our guests have any questions and we are not at home!
