I signed up for Airbnb a couple of years ago visiting a friend in Denver, and renting a friend of their's place. It was a surprisingly organic experience , I love the concept and comfort of having your own space. There are mulitple things that appeal to me traveling with Airbnb . I found it one of the most accommodating ways to travel with groups, it's cost efficient , cooking is a huge draw , laundry facilities are always a bonus especially on long trips and the list goes on .
I travel quite a bit , which prompted me to become a host. I can be pretty particular when traveling , therefore I do my best to welcome my guests as if it were their own home, always cold beverages in the fridge , snacks to munch on while unpacking , tolietries , ample amount of pillows , reading material .
Not to mention the community , I enjoy meeting people as a guest and as a host .
Everyone is welcome !
