Airbnb

I’ve written about many interesting Airbnb listings in the past but a new one which Kim sent me an article about has got to be the most interesting (maybe a better word would be surprising).

There is a bargain Airbnb in NYC where you stay in the a taxi van. This may have been the most artsy and unique Airbnb ever.  Here are some other unique options.

How would you like it if your one night stay came with a flight on Lufthansa? Continue reading Lufthansa Selling Seats on Airbnb

Kim, Lucas and I have enjoyed staying at some Airbnb properties over the years. Our first time using the service was back in 2012 when Lucas was around 7.5 months old. (Check out my review of the stay here.)

What I also like about Airbnb are all of the different kinds of places you can stay! There are many unique Airbnb options, like igloos and tents. You can also spend a night in celebrity homes, castles, yurts or pubs.

Earlier in the year I thought that Kim may have come across the most artsy and unique Airbnb property. Continue reading Stay In A Bargain Airbnb in NYC for $39 Per Night!

I’ve mentioned in the past how we’ve enjoyed our stays with Airbnb in recent years. (Check out a review of our first Airbnb stay in Singapore here.)

However, what one group of friends found on the property of their rental would make just about anybody want to checkout ASAP. Continue reading Guests Find Dead Body At Airbnb Rental

A couple of weeks before the Super Bowl I wrote about an Airbnb rental going for $8,500 per night. I also shared the big impact Airbnb was having on the big game.

Super Bowl 50 had a star-studded halftime show featuring Coldplay, Beyonce and Bruno Mars.

Would anyone imagine one of these stars staying at an Airbnb property after the game? Continue reading Beyonce Stays in $10,000 Airbnb After Super Bowl

We’ve enjoyed staying in Airbnb’s on a bunch of occassions. We found these stays to be an interesting way to meet locals and find out some insider info about the area.

Check out a review of our first time using Airbnb in Bali back in 2012.

In the middle of 2015 I wrote about what seemed like one of the most ridiculous Airbnb rentals ever, a sweet tent in Streamwood, Illinois.

I just came across what might be the most ridiculous Airbnb listing ever and it was located close to home in Brooklyn, NY! Continue reading One of Most Ridiculous Airbnb Rentals Ever!

Airbnb

Booking a room through Airbnb is interesting. You don’t just go to the site and book a room on the spot. The host has the right to accept or decline bookings  so they definitely have some control when it comes to who will be staying at their place.

Some reasons that a property might not be available could vary. Maybe the room’s owner will be away for the dates you need, maybe a long-term renter is there, who knows.

NBC News is reporting that some people hoping to rent a place might not get it due to discrimination. Continue reading Study Says That Airbnb Discriminates
