If you are traveling on a budget but enjoy staying in comfortable accommodation, or if you are a nomad enjoying living in other people’s houses, you have probably already heard of Airbnb.
Airbnb has been quickly taking over the old school way of staying in hotels or hostels.
Dom and I have often opted for Airbnb accommodation while traveling because it is a way to really feel at home. You just need to rock up with your backpack, unpack, put your feet up and relax.
The difference with an Airbnb accommodation is that you are staying in real fully furnished houses with all the comforts you need for a fraction of a hotel price. Ok, some houses can be expensive but it all depends on what you are looking for.
Many people have decided to live in Airbnb accommodation as a lifestyle. You basically do not have to buy anything to make a house your home, because someone has already done that for you to enjoy.

If you are a couple or a group of friends or even a family, your best bet is to rent an entire house or apartment. Usually, there is a good price reduction on longer stay such as a month and over.
If you are a solo traveler or you simply want to meet new exciting people, you can opt for renting a private or shared room in a house.
I did that when I traveled solo to Miami. I stayed in a very nice apartment where I met a bunch of other really cool traveler and the owner was just an incredible host with a super friendly dog.
BENEFITS OF RENTING THROUGH AIRBNB
#1 As soon as you walk in you feel like at home
That’s it! Someone else has already made your bed and you have all the basic you need.
#2 You do not need to purchase any superfluous stuff
Normally if you want to stay in a place for a longer time (for examples several months), you are most likely to have to purchase items for the kitchen including cooking utensils, pots, and pans. Here you don’t need to because they are already there for you. Normally you also get bed linens and towels! So when you leave again you do not have to worry about selling stuff or moving it with you.
#3 No bills to pay
Forget about electricity and/or gas bills or internet. They are already taken care of and included in the rental fee. You only need the password for the wifi and you are all set.
#4 No need to clean up
If you like me do not like house chores, normally these Airbnb places have a cleaner included in the rental rate. They will come and clean the apartment/house for you and even change your bed sheets.
These are only a few of the benefits of staying at an Airbnb accommodation.
