With the holidays approaching like a cheetah chasing a caribou on a wilderness program (what happened to August!), living in a warmer climate often attracts many friends and family from up north. Although, we yearn for the cooler weather and glistening snowfall in the wintertime, they flee from it. That “white blanket” they receive makes northern folk migrate to the south faster than school kids exiting the building on the last day of school before summer break.
If you’re like me, I struggle with creating enough space in my home to accommodate everyone and trying to make everyone happy. This can be a little stressful for all involved, but what if there’s a better way? Since the launch of AirBnB, people have managed to create real “home away from home” get-a-ways that are affordable, convenient and unique.
