our story

Welcome! Lina and Dan are a husband-wife duo bringing experience in customer service, construction, building engineering/design, building asset management, long-term rental property management, renovations and interior design.  

Dan has degrees in Real Estate and Housing as well as in Civil Engineering. He is an engineer (non-practising) that specialized in building science and building asset management. Dan has extensive experience working with contractors, municipalities, stratas/condo corps, and larger property management companies for the upkeep of multi-million dollar building portfolios. Dan also has a keen passion for extraordinary homes and has experience abroad building strawbale, rammed earth, and earthship homes. 

 

Lina has experience providing consults to clients on interior decorating for short-term rentals and has taken courses with Quill Decor. Prior to Retreat Vacation Rentals, Lina completed a Masters degree in Social Work and has experience in customer service, which helps her to engage and understand client's needs. Together, Daniel and Lina have completed 5 personal renovation projects ranging from cosmetic to full gut renovations as well as collectively managed properties with long- term leases. With this experience, Lina has developed a keen eye for interior home design and staging. Lina's most recently owned & staged home received 10 offers in just 24 hours.  

Together they enjoy collecting experiences on the road and sharing their love of travel. This provides them with an understanding of what travellers are looking for when exploring new places and how to successfully host.  

When they are not not managing properties they can be found exploring the west coast with their two daughters & yellow lab.

Thank you for considering us as your property managers and hosts.
