Most people planning a vacation will go to the usual websites such as Orbitz, TripAdvisor, and Travelocity to find hotels, flights etc. My friend Bruno passed along this handy site for those looking for a good deal on Bed and Breakfasts’ or private vacation rooms to rent out for a few nights. The apartments do look pretty sweet if you’re looking for a place to stay a little bit off the typical hotel grid. The site is http://www.airbnb.com/.
Finding a place to stay is easy, the search option works much like Kayak, etc. The Airbnb Collections is a neat feature that narrows down and showcases the most popular locations around the Globe and the deals available. If you’re looking to be a host on the website, the site makes it Craiglist style easy to do as well. Airbnb works with you to set prices, review clients (you get to approve who stays), and will send a professional photographer to your location so that you don’t have to worry about posting pictures on your own.
