We (my son, daughter and I, the Mom!) are from Washington, CT, visiting friends in Tahoe and Santa Cruz next week. We are outdoorsy, well educated, clean, tidy, pleasant, well-mannered, non-smoking people! Actually my daughter is living in the Tahoe area and working at a restaurant and instructing skiing. I learned about Airbnb from my close friend in CT who just started renting out a room in her beautiful 18th century house, and I was impressed about what I learned of Airbnb from her.
