Airbnb Article July 2016 FunkTravels


If you have been following our story for any amount of time, you know we are HUGE fans of Airbnb.

Like MAJOR fans…

Like…. we have used Airbnb rentals in over 25 different locations, 9 different states, and in 9 different countries!

Plus, Jason and I talk about Airbnb in almost every episode of our lifestyle/travel podcast. The advantages of a kitchen, central location, and twice the space for half the cost of a hotel makes our short or long-term stays much more affordable and comfortable.

Last year, an article I wrote was featured on This article list 5 ways an Airbnb host can make a rental more inviting for guests. We ourselves have never been hosts, but as you read above, we have been guests many times! If you are interested in be host for Airbnb, here are subtle but quality tips.

If you’re considering Airbnb, you can join the community for free! There is a short verification process for both the host and user, but after that, you are good to go! Also, if you sign up via our referral then we both can earn up to $20 toward our next trip.

Have you stayed in an Airbnb before? What did you think? Would you stay again?

Are you an Airbnb host? What did you think of the tips? Any other suggestions?

Comment below and let us know!

    A great tip I would have is READ the fine print!! I almost cancelled our stay when I realized that there was no running water or bathroom in our little cabin rental, but then the host assured us that there was access to those important amenities, we just needed to be a little creative! Once there we had a great experience and will definitely use Airbnb again!
