After this short and entertaining book.

After this short and entertaining book, I am ready to start the process of seriously considering Airbnb as an option. We will start with the apartment condo we have at the beach. We hardly use it and it’s a terrific destination. I have tried other services but the way Sally Miller presents Airbnb and what happens to her grasping the idea for the first time convinced us to try them out. It connects with the idea we had in mind. Oh and possibly our residence too! Great book if you are undecided like us. Everything is in the book. Enjoy!
