Carey and I just moved to LA after years in NYC and the Midwest, opening our new home, The Manchester House, to friends and guests. We've been hosting for almost 2 years now, and we'll probably do it for the rest of our lives - it's the most incredible way to meet new people! At our place you'll find a lot of touches and amenities that go beyond "making some extra cash" - we really love hosting and showing people an incredible time!
This isn't our full time gig, so we're not a full-service B&B, but if you read the reviews you'll see that we love taking care of our guests, whether that's taking them out, making them some food or a drink.
We use most of our Airbnb funds to improve the apartment and garden, with the goal of a full interior redesign in the next 6 months. Whatever is left we use to travel to other Airbnb flats worldwide, and make connections that will last a lifetime.
