My husband and I have used AirBnB as guests as well as serving as hosts. We first stayed at an AirBnB location in Sydney, Australia, while on our honeymoon in 2012, and were so impressed with our experience that we are now hooked! Not only are the AirBnB properties a good value, but more importantly, we have had lovely interactions with each of the hosts of locations where we've stayed, which now include a few locations in Portland, Bend, San Francisco, Baltimore, and Miami as well.
Since we had such great experiences as guests, we decided to start hosting in the summer of 2012 and listed our guest room on AirBnB. Hosting has proven to be a fantastic experience since we are both seasoned travellers and enjoy chatting with others about their travels, etc.
As far as demographics go, we are both in our mid-forties, have travelled all around the country (and the world) and are also are very tidy and respectful. Beyond travelling, we like listening to live music, exploring neighborhoods, having fun with our dogs, gardening and cooking great food, spending time near the water/beach, and meeting new people.
