I am from Minneapolis, MN and live in the Uptown area, a very residential, but urban neighborhood. I live with my husband of 16 years, Chad and my 15 year old son, Ian. I'm on a mission for the next few years to take my son on numerous Mother/Son weekends to build as many memories as possible before he's off to college. Every now and then I might let my husband join us too. :o).
I've only stayed at one Airbnb place so far but I'm hooked. We love to immerse ourselves in the local lifestyle when we travel and avoid hotels as much as possible. We are super respectful of the fact that you are sharing your fabulous property with us. I always make sure we leave a place as spotless as when we arrived. Getting tips from the property owners about how to best experience their neighborhoods can't be beat.
