Re: “Airbnb-style rentals are booming, but some say they aren't playing fair

My husband and I have been renting out our basement level on Airbnb since August of 2014. We've paid all appropriate taxes. We have spoken to our neighbors and alerted them to what we are doing. Our neighbors have been supportive. They had no idea we were renting our space on Airbnb until we told them- there has been no impact on this neighborhood. We are always present when are guests are there, so if there are issues we can address them immediately. We have never had an issue with a renter. Airbnb renters, in our experience, are kind, courteous & respectful. We have made many friends from all over the world and have been able to pay off some lingering bills with the extra income it has generated. All of our guests have stated they would never stay in a hotel - yet we point them to all our favorite bars, restaurants & shopping places where they spend a lot of money. It is a win-win situation.
