My wife and I have been married for nearly 40 years. We have raised two wonderful children and that's our 4.5 year old grandson in a recent wedding picture. We have been offering the room as a vacation rental for about 4 years now. Only recently did a friend tell us about Airbnb, so we are eager to try this professional and secure-looking site. Our guests come to SB for a variety of reasons -- weddings of friends, to visit grandchildren, to see their kids who are attending one of the local colleges, job interviews, European travellers on holiday, etc. We enjoy meeting the variety of visitors who choose our home, although we sometimes will not see them at all. Some guests know their way around town, have no questions for us, and may value their privacy. These folks will check themselves in and out and be on their way.
My wife and I are empty-nesters, but are blessed to have our children still in town. Julie enjoys her special time taking care of grandson Andy 1-2 days a week. It's a special time to have with such a growing imagination. We have lived in SB for 40 years and have a wealth of knowledge about our community should a guest want to use us as a resource. We both love a good story - movie, book, etc - and we enjoy the outdoors. I love to golf when time permits and most sports occupy my attention to some degree (go Lakers). My wife is a true people person who has devoted the last twenty-five years of her life to assisting folks with various issues which come up in their personal life.
