In Sleeping with Strangers: An Airbnb Host’s Life in Lake Tahoe and Mexico, Kathryn Reed pulls back the covers on what happens when she invites Airbnb guests into her homes in South Lake Tahoe, California, and Todos Santos, Mexico.
The Airbnb host’s journey begins as a way to pay the mortgage, then morphs into an opportunity to live rent free in Baja California Sur. Unexpected adventures involve the police, taking a hammer to the guest room door, and coping with the furnace dying on New Year’s Day when the outside temperature is literally freezing. Some guests were like friends, while others would never be welcomed back. No matter the category, this host enthralled all guests with tales about these two incredible outdoor meccas so they could create their own lifetime memories.
AJ the dog played co-host on this adventure, sizing up those with the suitcases, questioning men in flip flops, and easily making friends with those who would slip her human food.
