Airbnb is paying for our wedding next year! Every penny goes to our wedding fund. Airbnb is better than renting out our extra room because we can generate more income than simply renting. Also we have the flexibility of not booking if we want to have family or friends stay with us. After we get married our extra room will be the baby room. We also like the review process so we know we are getting clean, safe and nice guests. We like hosting a lot of different people. They come from all over. The guests are great for the local businesses too. The guests spend a ton of money in the community.
