Making friends in one night's stay

By The Travelair on Nov 12, 2017 9:11:19 PM

As I find myself moving from place to place for the last 6 years, I realize how fortunate I have been to meet kind and inspiring people that enriched my life. I have made, that is, a lot of new friends. And though friendships may not be built in a day, they may introduce themselves into one's life quite unexpectently, almost like love at first sight.

The Top Airbnb Places to stay in Tulum, Mexico

By The Travelair on Jan 6, 2017 3:28:16 PM

I've been planning to do this trip to Mexico for a very long time. Once I settled with my dates I set in the search for accommodation. It took me about a week to finalize my choice and book. It's a no easy think, is it? Either I am picky or Tulum is a really small place with few five star reviewed places on Airbnb on a reasonable budget and high quality. While searching I managed to find some beautiful houses I am sharing here with you. The prices are within the range of $90 - $180 USD but it really depends on the dates so better check them out separately.

Charming places to stay in Cuba

By The Travelair on May 7, 2016 1:11:37 AM

If you haven't been to Cuba yet I think it's time to prioritize your trip sooner than later. My intuition says things are going to change fast with so much tourism expected from North America. I haven't been to Cuba yet but I have friends who did and they came back with a huge smile on their faces and a sense they would prefer to have stayed there forever.

Kassi was looking forward to her long weekend trip to Edinburgh with her boyfriend. She had booked her flights but the accommodation was still in the air as she had a very busy schedule.

I will do the search for you and I will come up with the best house to fully enjoy your stay in Edindurgh".

3 Insider tips on how to find the best Airbnb accommodation

By The Travelair on Mar 28, 2016 1:35:27 AM


This is the frescoed ceiling of a bedroom in an 18th century building in Florence. It was my first and unforgettable stay in Airbnb back in 2011. This is where I started loving staying in other peoples houses instead of hotels. 

Later on the life path lead to Ireland where coincidentaly Airbnb was just starting off its European base. I was indeed thrilled to join the company and had great experiences there working for two and a half years. As an Airbnb employee I had the privilege to enjoy a generous quarterly $500 USD coupon for my pure joy of traveling. And I can say I made the best out of it :)

When I plan a trip a big part of the research is dedicated to searching for the best place to stay. And it really pays off in the end.

I believe the house one chooses to stay defines the entire experience of the trip for it represents the culture of the country, of the city, of the neighborhood and of the host. In a way, it also mirrors guest’s aesthetics or cultural aspirations.


These are the main characteristics I suggest noticing when searching for an Airbnb accommodation:

  • 1. History and style

    If you want to have a unique experience select a house with character. This is difficult to define but to give you an example it might be a historical house or one with evident architectural features of a specific era. Check that the interior of the house is equally interesting and rich. It is laid out functionally and beautifully. It is decorated in a way that it shows this process was done through the years and reflects personal experiences of the host or their family. For your practical needs it also has to be equipped smartly and sufficiently.
