Airbnb anyone

Does anyone use airbnb to rent out their house when their on the road? Looking to do a 12 month trip and rent out the house for either a one year rental or go airbnb so that we would still be able to head home every now and then. Would like to here both good and bad experiences.

We haven't used airbnb but you need a property manager either way you go. Who's going to handle the cleaning, keys, etc? You can't do that while on the road. If you want to keep the house a long term lease seems like the better solution. If you are planning a year trip then you have an rv to live in, why do you need to go back to the house? Dr visits, visit friends and relatives? You can do that while living in the rv. A long term lease with qualified tenants seems a better idea than people going in & out all the time. Is the house near a destination city? Do you have HOA's that may prevent using it as a bnb? We have 2 rental houses with a property manager and it is well worth the $$ we pay them to screen tenants, handle repairs & problems.

California is not a friendly Landlord state. I would check with a local real estate attorney and a property management company.
