Airbnb was suggested to me by a friend of my daughter. I have absolutely loved it while it has been fun at the same time. It certainly has helped me financially. I had to find a house to rent yesterday, no time to really look. What I found was a huge house with more space than I could ever imagine. So when I listed it on Airbnb I was launched in to another world. It certainly has helped me financially while at the same time I have met so many wonderful people from all walks of life. Many of the people have come more than once and that is always a plus in terms of knowing, they liked where they stayed and want to do it again. I feel this is such a wonderful opportunity for so many people. Your house has been emptied of the children, you don't especially want to downsize and this substantiates why you can stay in your BIG house. Thank you,
