My wife, Nao, and I are both retired educators. We live in a suburb south of Boston. We like to travel and we went to France for about two weeks in September, visiting Paris and Provence. It was fabulous! We usually visit southern Califoria every February to visit family and to escape the harsh New England winter weather. Our older son lives and works in LA and our younger son (20 years old) often travels with us. We have an adorable (rescue) dog named Misty who is some sort of poodle/terrier mix. She stays in Massachusetts with our friends while we travel.
Although this is the first time we are booking through Airbnb I did stay at an Airbnb house in Maine for a 4 day fishing trip with a friend in October. We were very pleased with the booking; the house was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. The rental was arranged by my friend who has booked through Airbnb many times and has been happy with his experiences.
