I live in Big Wave Bay, Hong Kong, with my wife Oonagh, two boys Josh and Luke, and our three dogs. As you can probably guess from the village name we live an outdoor lifestyle, spending lots of time in the surrounding mountains and sea.
We fell in love with Sri Lanka many years ago for it's people, climate, colour, and charm, and wanting a closer connection with the place we bought some land in a fishing community called Talaramba in the early 2000's. We finally finished building Talaramba Reef in 2011 and have been sharing it with guests ever since.
La Bique is a lovely old farm house close to where my parents and my sister's family live in Bordeaux and we use it for big family get togethers every year.
And in 1998 Oonagh and I spent the ski season in Whistler. We were so taken by the place that we bought an apartment there and have been back at least once a year ever since. Our sons have grown up skiing there.
We rent all three places when we are not there and hope that our guests find them as homely and welcoming as we do.
