Muyang’s review “Sam and Katie are great hosts! And their duet is beautiful (Sam is a very good guitar player)! Lovely beach and close to Northwestern University! I really enjoyed my stay. You are a sweet couple! I really love your music!”
The company requires both host and guest to complete a full profile, much like Facebook, with pictures, bio, and general information.
I’ve had such a positive experience as an AirBnB host. Not only have we made easy cash, we’ve made new friends and encountered new and interesting cultures through meeting people visiting Chicago from around the world!
Just this past week, we hosted visiting students Northwestern University coming from as far as India, China, and France!
One of my favorite stories to share was a guest from November who worked with the Mexican government, and allowed us to toast with him on some delicious fresh mezcal tequila. Olé!
AirBnB allows you to turn down a stay request for any reason. This was incredibly important to us, because I didn’t want to invite any unstable or unsafe into our space.
As well, AirBnB provides $1 million in insurance to protect us in case a guest goes bonkers. We have had no negative experiences hosting, and are on our 10th month of acting as hosts!
If you’ve ever considered the fun of having an international traveler share home and life with you, I highly recommend the safe and vetted company of AirBnB for home hosting.
