Hi, we are a family of five and our children are 16, 15 and 10 years old. We did rent a house via Airbnb before, in autumn 2013 in Barcelona, Spain. I think it's a great way to travel, the houses you can find on Airbnb are usually a lot nicer than houses that are let by an agency. Our children now have the age to decide with us were they want to go; they are really interested in other countries and to discover a new city or region is very exciting for them. Which makes it more fun for me too!
