Airbnb is an online marketplace that connects people who want to rent out their homes with people who are looking for accommodations in that locale.
It currently covers more than 100,000 cities and 220 countries worldwide. The company’s name comes from “air mattress B&B.”
Airbnb locations can sometimes be quite nice surprising, and sometimes not.
There are some places that we just dream of visiting, that are so popular that it can sometimes take up to a year to get in and that’s why Airbnb exists.
For hosts, participating in Airbnb is a way to earn some income from their property, but with the risk that the guest might do damage to it.
For guests, the advantage can be relatively inexpensive accommodations, but with the risk that the property won’t be as appealing as the listing made it seem.
Whichever way, Airbnb still provides relatively cheap services which is why people are ditching hotel to book a bnb. Here are some reasons to consider a airbnb either as a host or as a guest.
People are now ditching staying in an expensive hotel to stay in a Airbnb for various reasons:
Airbnb hosts list many unique eye-catching properties from single rooms, a suite of rooms, apartments, moored yachts, houseboats, entire houses, or even a castle—on the Airbnb website while guests have a wide range of options to choose from.
Hosts don’t have to pay to list their properties. Listings can include written descriptions, photographs with captions, and a user profile where potential guests can get to know a bit about the hosts.
Pricing is totally up to them. Hosts can decide how much to charge their guests per night, per week, or per month. Guests can search for Airbnb in the exact location or the nearest to where they want to stay.
Here are just some of the unusual yet amazing housing options out there!
