We love Airbnb. They are a great site to be on. Probably out of the top 3 sites for booking vacation, they are the best to work with and offer the best advantages to the hosts and guests. Their worry free booking process and getting to know the guests and hosts prior to arrival dates is rewarding for all involved. We need Airbnb because the housing market fell apart back in 08 when we were trying to sell our house. Once we found about Airbnb and all the good things the site stood for, we decided to rent our house out to guests thru them. We have been completely satisfied with our results and the ability to subsidize us pay the high property taxes and insurance on the house. Thousands of satisfied guests from around the world are happy with Airbnb. Kudos to them and hope they continue with their innovative services for the vacationing crowd.
