I'm from Oakland, California (and will happily show you how great Oakland actually is despite the bad rap it seems to get). I used to work for Lonely Planet and now work for Airbnb (which means you get to shame me if I screw something up). I'm a super easy, quiet and low-maintenance guest - I'll typically leave a place cleaner than I found it. I've stayed in Airbnb rentals by myself and with my wife and young daughter - it's our favorite way to travel.
