We have just joined Airbnb to be able to make ends meet. We just had our first guest this weekend. It was very nice to be able to host somebody who is travelling with the help of Airbnb and was able to afford to travel. It is such a good company that we were able to trust their background check for our guests and take a deposit if sime damage occurs and handle the money. Their service is great and helps us to do this without worrying who we are sharing our space with, and giving the key to our house. We are grateful and lucky to have airbnb covering our back.
