Adding to the initial description below:
After having experienced AirBnB hosts in dozen+ cities in Europe, we can't possibly recommend AirBnB high enough. We are sold and will be walking endorsements. We will look forward to years to come of adventures and better-than-hotels stays.
Description for our Summer 2012 trip:
Met in '05, married '07, and we have loved traveling ever since. Just three weeks ago, a dear couple we know invited us to a bon voyage dinner party, and they shared their March 2012 positive experience with airbnb in Paris and Rome. They could not possibly have more highly recommended airbnb wonderful hosts. We're now looking forward to the adventures and to meeting local residents as we use airbnb for the first time for our 5th Anniversary celebration touring Europe. Thanks for considering us, and we welcome the opportunities of meeting you.
