Sunny one-room cottage for one or two. Galley kitchen. Private entrance to shared back yard on a quiet, tree-lined street three blocks from the university campus. Walking distance to restaurants, the Roxy movie theater, downtown, and hiking trails.
My husband, son and I spent last year in Spain where we discovered airbnb. Staying in unique, cool places with friendly hosts added a rich dimension to our travels in southern Europe. I especially enjoyed places where hosts provided delicious breakfasts of local food.
Our experiences inspired us to host. We've turned the stand-alone studio in our back yard with a separate gate into an airbnb site.
