  1. When i visited Detroit I stayed in a shared house for the 1st tyme on AirBNB to see how it worked. The host was there, I rented a room & a couple rented the other room. I was traveling alone, so my decision to stay shared didn't affect anyone but me. It was cool, everybody minded their business. We were all friendly to each other in passing. We followed house rules & was very respectful to the whole experience. It was not a bad isea, I would do it again…I luv AirBNB vs hotels, can step right out on the front porch winyu need to. Don't have 2 go 2 the elevator, deal with 10 ppl & ryde down 20 floors just 2 get outside. Offers a lot more privacy & the spots are awesome. We gotta penthouse in Hollywood Hills last year!! $2500 for a wknd! What are the chances u will live in a multi million $ home? I know what it's lyke 2 sleep in one. #Dreams. I think I'm gonna step out the box & rent a room out next summer

  2. I use airbnb a lot, and I have actually come across sheer lies. Like stating the place has a hottub, and it had a regular bathroom. Writing a rewiew was not helpful, the lie is still there. Most of my experiences are good, but I have seen some really strange rooms/houses. So now I try to read between the lines.

  3. BED TIP- #1 first encase the mattress in a zippered bed bug protector THEN put on the waterproof fitted cover. The waterproof cover only needs washing a few times a year unless the sheet gets soiled and you would not need to do anything with the bedbug protection encasement.

  4. Great video.
    Unswers many questions.
    Hi guy soon to be a host here.
    I have a property in San Miguel De allende Gto Mex. which I'm getting ready to Airbnb in just a few weeks.
    Any one hosting in that area?
    Any imput please feel frre to email me at [email protected]gmail.com
    I'll Highly appreciate any feedback on the subject.

  5. My problem right now is I need change me arrival date and I have no idea how to do this. Have tried to get hold of my host but no way. I am so disappointed that they make it so hard!!!

  6. Used AirBnB internationally many times and love it. I agree the bed and pillows are the most important segment. If they are not comfy then I won't be back and won't recommend that place either.

  7. Be advised, that with Airbnb, if your guest cancels for personal reasons (such as death in family etc), even once the stay has begun, regardless of the host’s cancellation policy, the guest will get a refund for the entire rental period, or part unused. Even though the cancellation is in no part the fault of the host, the host will lose that rental money. With VRBO, the guest has the option of purchasing “traveler’s insurance” to cover such events. With VRBO, the host is protected whether the guest purchases the trip insurance or not.
