My husband and I have been Airbnb hosts for over a year and have had an excellent experience. We live in a big old house that we love and we love to welcome guests into our home. We love sharing things about the neighborhood that we live in. Airbnb has given us the opportunity to share our home beyond just our family and friends. The money that we have earned has helped us make some needed updates to hour home and allowed us more "fun money" to do our own traveling. We have only had the opportunity to stay in one airbnb in the last year but it was a great experience and we are getting ready to book a stay in July.
