Many people who plan to rent out their homes to visitors coming to Charlotte for the Democratic National Convention are having second thoughts. So to give themselves peace of mind, they're staying at home -- but offering extra amenities.
"We want to offer some Southern hospitality," homeowner Michael Donovan said.
With hotels and condos in uptown booking up fast, homeowners like Donovan are offering a more personal, family-friendly experience.
"Cooking, personal training and also access to great outdoor activities in and around the house," Donovan said.
The Better Business Bureau has seen a recent spike in homeowners wanting to offer DNC guests the full bed-and-breakfast experience. But it urges everyone, whether they stay in the house or not, to do full background checks.
“You still have to take some time and some due diligence and make sure you know who's staying in your house, and whether it's going to be a good experience for you or not," BBB President Tom Bartholomy said.
