My husband and I used Airbnb in Sept 2010 for our 20th wedding anniversary and stayed in Litte Italy, hosted by Brian. In May 2012 we planned a stay with Brad on the upper east side in New York City. We have two girls, ages 20 and 16. My husband works for State Farm Insurance and I am a real estate agent with Better Homes and Gardens. This is a wonderful service to use, we look forward to using it again in 2014 for a trip to London and Paris, as our oldest daughter will be studying in Madrid. We are quiet and clean guests, always leave the home picked up and dishes cleaned. We like homes that are near a grocery so we can have a few snacks and breakfast food in the apartment before we leave for a day of sightseeing. We enjoy talking with our hosts to learn of their favorite dining spots/things to see/shopping areas in the city we are visiting. We do not smoke. Our younger daughter has two years of French instruction at school, our older daughter has studied Spanish for four years.
