As we embark upon our 2015 season of receiving Airbnb guests, we are truly grateful to be able to share our home in order to help make ends meet!! We are a couple in our early seventies with a home by the water that we general contracted to build ourselves in 2004/2005. We are blessed with good health and with the Airbnb income, it is allowing us to stay in our home into the foreseeable future!! The caliber of guests we have received has been fascinating, professional people representing many "Walks of Life!" The genuine sharing and caring of breakfast conversations at our family table have been truly special for us and we are convinced this endeavor is keeping us young! Caringly, Rebecca Moore and Stephen York
