Creativity, self-reliance, and family weave through the character and soul of Nashville and its residents, and the local home sharing community reflects that identity.
Airbnb provides an avenue for Nashvillians to use home sharing as means for economic empowerment by earning a little extra income to help pay rent or mortgage and infuse new tourism revenue into the local economy — generating a quarter of a billion dollars in economic activity in 2016. Airbnb will continue to advocate for fair home sharing rules and reasonable enforcement to protect residents’ ability to share their homes while also maintaining the integrity of Nashville’s beautiful neighborhoods.
Home sharing is a powerful economic engine for residents, local businesses, and the City of Nashville.

Airbnb helps ease the burden of travel for families
“There’s a bigger picture of secondary homes that I feel isn’t discussed. When you have medical appointments, to have your kids know where their beds are, and where to put their toys in the backyard to play with — you can’t recreate that in a hotel setting. Airbnb has been life-changing for families.”Suzanne, Airbnb Host, Nashville South
