About This Episode

In just a moment you’ll meet Laura Gentry and Carollani Sandberg — the creators of The Sagecliffe Satori, a luxurious Airbnb cabin in Quincy, Washington. 

Laura and Carollani are what you might call “experience optimizers”.  They love to travel, try new restaurants, and explore off the beaten paths, but can’t help but do so with a critical eye.  They often ask each other, “what would you do differently if you owned this space?” or “how might you enhance this experience to make it even more memorable?”

Carollani had decided that it was time to sell her townhouse and explore the possibility of a new rental property -- one that she and her family could use for short term rentals.

One afternoon, Laura and Carollani were having lunch with a few friends who worked in real estate investments and the bunch started chatting about up and coming neighborhoods in and around the greater Seattle area, but none of these areas particularly compelled Laura and Carollani. 

Right before lunch wrapped up, one of their friends casually mentioned a new development out in Quincy, Washington — about 2.5 hours east of Seattle. This development was to feature a collective of luxury condos that overlooked the Columbia River Gorge.

And, while they didn’t know it at the time, that moment was the genesis of what would become The Sagecliffe Satori.  Tune in to hear the inspiring story of how Laura and Carollani brought one of the most incredible and magical stays available on the Airbnb platform to life.
