Elena and I were traveling most of this summer, and we needed to get somebody to feed our cat during our absence. That's how our airbnb journey started. We turned our house for rent and let our guests know that the cat was on them. It worked very well. Guests were so responsible!
When we returned home, our older children left for college, and rooms stayed empty. So, we continue welcoming airbnb guests, while the cat duty is on us.
Oh, about myself? I teach in a university, we like travels and music, we speak two languages, and we have two smaller kids. Don't worry about the kids - the quiet time after 9 pm for the guests is imposed on them too.
