From Flight Attendant to Top-Rated Airbnb Host — Meet the Creator of the Sparrow’s Nest

Suzie has spent most of her life working at the intersection of travel and customer service. 

She traveled the world as a flight attendant for many years, before deciding to become a full-time Airbnb host.

But there’s so much more to her story…

My wife and I stayed at this impeccably clean and serene cottage on Suzie and Neal’s stunning property for two weeks and instantly fell in love with this calming and beautifully inviting and decorated space.

The love, care, and thought poured into this place is unmatched. We found everything we might need and then some to make dinner prep feel like a French chef’s dream.

And, when we didn’t want to cook, Suzie’s recommendations never disappointed. But, what made this place even more magical — besides the sweet smell of lavender wafting through the air, or the crisp linens on the bed, or even the fresh cut flowers that greeted us on the kitchen table…(oh aaaaand did I mention the chic decor and rustic fire pit?) — was Suzie and Neal’s kind and warm hospitality, which made our stay truly feel like home.

If joy were a place, it would undoubtedly be The Sparrow’s Nest. Enjoy the show!
