I am fairly new to airbnb. We are retired school teachers young enough to have a second career opportunity. We bought 36 acres in Tennessee and have had a 20 year dream to have a B & B. Airbnb has made this dream come true and made it possible for us to start our little B & B. I am so impressed by airbnb. They do all the PR work. They Set it all up, and made it so easy for us. We filled out all the info to be hosts. also, it is very safe. Reviews are done on hosts as well as guests. We are also verified with our license. They do all the collecting and depositing of money right into our bank account. Taxes, fees etc... As retired teachers, airbnb has given us a way to make extra much needed money. We enjoy being hosts, meeting and serving others. It has been a real blessing. Thank you, Esther & Tamara
