Want a total immersion into the culture and heart of your travels? Then choose Airbnb. You stay in an actual home in your favorite city and get to live like a local.
We have stayed in Airbnb's around the world and even are proud owners of one in our home state of Florida.
When you book with Airbnb you are protected by their rigorous rating system and you get to experience living like a local.
Being an Airbnb host may seem like it would make us biased for suggesting them but I can assure you that not only are we are proud Airbnb hosts but we are loyal Airbnb users.
Why we believe in Airbnb
Being a host makes us keenly aware of the requirements that go into being a part of the Airbnb community. We are required to keep a very high standard that is based on rating from our renters. We are rated on things like location, cleanliness, accuracy of our listing and overall quality. This rating is a very important aspect to using Airbnb for your travel accommodations. If you are looking for a place to stay (especially in a foreign country) you can easily verify the safety of the area, the cleanliness of the accommodation and the reliability of the host. And the best part is if you have an issue with your accommodations and can not resolve it with the host then you can contact Airbnb for assistance. From our personal experience as hosts and travelers they are very responsive and helpful.
How to choose the best accommodation
What is important to you as a traveler?
Defining what is most important to you as a traveler is the first step in finding the perfect accommodation. What is your budget? Do you need a lot of space to stretch out? Is bed comfort super important? Do you want to be in the center of the action or would you rather be off the beaten path? With Airbnb you can find the perfect match by entering your requirements and doing a little bit of research.
The first step is signing up. It is easy and free to create an account. You can create an account to become a host and earn money by renting out your property or you can create an account and be a traveler. Or like many Airbnb members you can easily do both!
