The rent I earn through Airbnb helps pay my daughter's scoliosis treatments insurance co-pays deductibles mortgage, maintenance fees, property tax, general excise tax, transient accommodations tax, state income tax, federal income tax. It makes use of space that would otherwise be underutilized or vacant. It provides a better deal for guests visiting Waikiki Oahu Honolulu. Our condo is better than the comparable hotel rooms yet it's priced lower.Compared to their competitors, Airbnb is hyper professional, easy to use, have the best global coverage, foreign language support, reputation, review system, accountability, problem solving systems of anyone today. no other service compares. My family needs this income to make ends meet.
