“We are honored and excited to be recommended as a local shopping destination for guests of Airbnb. As a business that is owned by two women who have been friends for 25 years, we like to extend a warm welcome to Airbnb guests while they are in San Francisco.” —Barbara Koch, co-owner of Onyx Boutique

“Tanner Goods is incredibly grateful for the impact Airbnb and its gracious hosts have had on our San Francisco brick-and-mortar store. Through their community network, Airbnb has helped Tanner Goods and the rest of the small businesses in the neighborhood reach customers from all over the world, providing a noticeable influx of new and returning visitors to the street each and every month.” —Michael Anderson, Senior Brand Manager of Tanner Goods

“There’s no greater compliment than when a local Airbnb host recommends your shop as a ‘neighborhood must-try.’ At Powder, most of our customers are trying shaved snow for the first time, and hearing a guest say that they can’t wait to share their experience with friends and family back home creates the best feeling.” —David Chung, co-founder of Powder Shaved Snow
