Founders

Meet Hailey & Max

Travelers all of their lives, siblings Hailey and Max Waitt are collectors of the stays that stood out. The experiences that held meaning. The moments that we travel for. In intimately understanding the range of what’s possible, and what’s most valuable, in a hospitality experience, the two set forth with their own nuanced vision of serving the discerning traveler — starting in their beloved hometown by the sea.
