My wife and I really enjoy and appreciate the benefits that Air BNB provides to us and our guests. They get to live in a furnished home while exploring Marin County, San Francisco, and the wine country. They generate income for all these local businesses and return to tell their neighbors and friends. We get additional income that allows us to stay in our home without having to sell our home in order to make ends meet. We provide a wonderful home and our guests reciprocate by taking care of our home as if it were their own. It is also a secure feeling to know that Air BNB has adequate liability insurance if necessary.
