I am an airbnb host since March of 2015 and love it! After the initial worry about trusting strangers in one's home I can truthfully say that I have not had a bad experience yet. I believe the airbnb community works well through its reviews. Hosting is giving me a different, more positive stand in this world where not everyone is to be mistrusted. It is also giving me some monetary independence and I am using the money to finally do some long overdue maintenance so there is definitely a trickle down effect. Plus the not small % going to taxes seems also beneficial for the economy? Thank you, Ms Adriaans
