“I still don't know why, exactly, but I do think people can have a spiritual connection to landscape…” - Hannah Kent
You are: a unique and inspired traveller, journeying without finite destination or judgement. One who finds luxury not in pretence, adventure not always in the loudest moment, spirit exemplified through participation and respect for the community of earth. Your tastes differ as greatly as variety of experiences. You are united only by the desire to enhance, enjoy, expand and explore all the world has to offer.
Seascapes; waking up in a bed underneath the crashing waves of Tanzania’s Pemba Island, completely surrounded by water.
Mountainscapes; stepping out onto your private terrace amidst the peaks of the Italian Alps with the cool, crisp air hitting your face.
Desertscapes; gazing across seemingly infinite desert lands, sun basking your skin outside your Moroccan bedouin tent while you write your travel journal and sip fresh mint tea.

Born from the friendship of two coconut lovers. Built by two travelers' hearts. Inspired by the world.
"I put the lime in the coconut"
Lover of the tropics, seafood, cats, caipirinhas and anything coconut.
Sasha has wandered from place to place as long as she can remember. From petting camels on Bulgarian beaches to long train rides to Finland, sailing through the Mediterranean with her mom or eating the best tomato salad of her life in a hidden Turkish treehouse. She discovered early on that those are the types of experiences that stay with you for life.
Growing up in Moscow, and studying at the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, Sasha now calls Toronto her home.
Always falling in love with everything Latin or Mediterranean, Sasha's trips to Greece, Mexico and Colombia have sparked the creation of Room + Wild. Quickly discovering that her positive travel experiences coincided with the extraordinary accommodations where she stayed, Sasha wanted to help others explore exotic destinations in a new way. Wanting the intimacy and comfort of a rental home combined with the luxuries one would get from a hotel, Sasha found what she was looking for in eco-lodges, family owned villas, sustainable design hotels, and unique b&bs - all now a part of the Room + Wild collection.
Still travelling the world any chance she gets, discovering new nature retreats and wishing she could take her cat Leopold along, Sasha dreams of guiding the tourism industry towards sustainable travel and one day building her own ecolodge on a small South American island with her boyfriend Nick.
"There are people who swim in pools while next to the ocean... I am not one of them"
Lover of the universe, oceans, dogs, and really good tomatoes.
Born in Toronto, Canada to immigrant parents - mom from London, England and dad from Rhodes, Greece, Nick knew there was more to the world than his hometown from a very early age. Summers were spent in Greece, eating octopus and watermelon or climbing ancient ruins. Winters in Canada were spent playing hockey, building igloos, or chasing the family dogs.
Nick has always been a huge wildlife lover and supporter, fascinated by oceans (most notably the Shark), and holds sustainability close to his heart. After studying Marketing and International Business at Ryerson University as well as Art Direction at The Toronto Film School he went on to work as a Brand Manager in Advertising and the Music Industry, specializing in digital and experiential marketing. He continues to apply his multifaceted creativity in connecting the dots and executing successful collaborations and partnerships. Nick has helped Room + Wild grow beyond its horizons and has shaped it into what it is today.
When Nick is not exploring and documenting new corners of the world, adding to his rock collection or looking at the night sky at his summer home on a small Greek island of Kastellorizo, he is producing music, creating and marketing brands, or cooking "something different".
“I am easily satisfied... with the best.”
Lover of exotic architecture, heavy metal, french films, Japanese toy culture, and good tequila.
Maddalen was born in Toronto, Canada to Hungarian and Italian scuba-diving enthusiast parents. Following their underwater adventures, from Hawaii to Jamaica to Muskoka, all through her childhood, Maddalen developed a taste for unique undiscovered places.
Maddalen lived and breathed the Toronto music and art scene. After graduating with honours in Film Studies at Laurier University, she started her career in Public Relations. As a publicist she worked her way through Joe Fresh, Faulhaber Communications and starting her own company, before taking a plunge and moving to the pastel streets of Guadalajara, Mexico in 2017. When she's not wandering through agave fields in the Town of Tequila, snowboarding in Whistler, having cocktails named after her, or being a new mom to her cat Mezcal, Maddalen is working on PR, strategy, and brand for Room + Wild.
“never follow, unless you are on a narrow trail, and there is no safe way around...”
Lover of all of earth’s gifts. Most notably horses, dogs, flowers, gemstones, crystals and the like. Born in Toronto, raised in Vancouver; travelling was a birthright. Being one of 6 siblings that spent every opportunity away from home, navigating the Caribbean Sea by sails or crossing North America in a caravan was the norm.
Her Hungarian, British and Canadian background lends itself to the admiration of all the different cultures and ways of life she encounters while explaining her interesting roots and family heritage. Self proclaimed “outsider”, Lili admires rocks and plants more than most ‘things’ and is at home on horseback with her dog Tia or Frank at foot. An avid naturalist, she explores lifestyles that are vegan-based, sustainable and not man-made.
After receiving a Bachelor of honours in Fine Art/English Comparative Lit at the University of Toronto, she continued to study abroad in Czech Republic as well as completing a Goldsmith certification in Florence, Italy. In her free time you might find her at her cottage in Muskoka reading under a tree or practising self awareness and mindfulness at a wellness retreat in Tulum.
As the most recent addition to our core team, Lili has added significant depth to the voice and purpose of RW with her experience, insightfulness, worldly knowledge, love of linguistics and exploration.
