Airbnb has allowed us to get extra income from our adult children's rooms. When guests stay with us we direct them to eat and visit locally owned businesses which helps our community economy. Our extra income goes towards paying college tuition, bills and other extras. We like the personal experience of staying in people's homes. It's affordable and we make friends wherever we go. Airbnb helps us screen potential guests and gives excellent chicken a for safety. They are easily reached and have been an excellent resource. Steva
