I had a wonderful experience this weekend while travelling to visit family in North Carolina. Like most people we normally stay in a hotel. We were going to need two rooms this time, so I decided to look into something different to save some money.
I had heard great things about Airbnb. These are places that individuals own – houses, apartments, condominiums, etc. and they rent them out to you for whatever price they deem appropriate. I looked up their website and started looking around. I found a cute little house 2 miles from where we were going. It was also $100 a night for the use of the entire 3 bedroom, 2 bath house which was $20 less per night than one room at the hotel!
I cannot recommend Airbnb enough after using it this weekend. We had such a wonderful experience. It was so nice to go back to a house after a long day of driving. We were also able to have our family come over to the house to visit rather than hanging out in a cramped hotel room. We had a kitchen to use, we were able to do laundry if we needed to, and we had sofas and recliners to relax in at the end of the day.

There are endless places to visit and chances are there is an Airbnb where you want to go. Give it a try – I don’t think you will be disappointed.
