Air BnB Warning
At the 2015 Bluebunny Retreat, one retreatant (who is an AirBnB landlord herself) attempted to use an AirBnB Irving listing and found the listing fraudulent and loaded with problems.
In 2016 another out-of-town retreatant found a simple room at a great price and was pleased.
If you use AirBnB, check it out and do not use a site without reviews.
