Airbnb has been a really good way for us to supplement my income. We have had a son who has been very sick and because of that I have not been able to work a regular schedule. By renting one of our rooms, we have been able to bring some additonal money in for bills. Airbnb is a secure way to accomplish this. We dont' handle the money, they do and they are insured. We have not had any horror stories with our rentals. I would recommend Airbnb to everyone. I hope you will see how home sharing is a great benefit to many of us here in the US.
