Soooo...most all info you'll need is written in detail in the listings. About me- I've been a host on here since mid 2012....before Airbnb was really cool :) My old roommate and Airbnb partner was Jimena, she's the one in the picture with me and Michael Moore (he's a big fan of ours :)- and now my Airbnb partner/BF is Sergio. That's him in the other photo, and you'll see him mentioned in some of the recent reviews.
Airbnb is a super cool platform and way to travel. All we ask is to please have a completed profile with info and at least one pic (and it's not to judge you based on looks but instead so we can see the face of whomever wants to stay and sleep in our home...surely that's understandable). We also ask you to realize you are not booking a hotel but instead space in our home. We keep it clean and tidy for all. Respect those basic principles and we're likely to get along- it's that easy.
Peace out...and maybe we'll be welcoming ya to NYC soon,
J & S
