I started traveling solo two years ago and have stayed in roughly 10 Airbnbs around the world by myself.
I usually travel by myself, and I usually stay in an Airbnb.
In my experience, Airbnbs feel lived in, which helps me feel more at home on the road. Plus, the platform typically offers more unusual stays than I can get at a hotel.
Through Airbnb, I’ve stayed in tiny homes, tents, and cozy cabins from the US to Europe. Once I stayed in a geodesic dome in the woods of Ontario, Canada. Another time in Miami, I slept in a lifeguard tower overlooking the Florida Everglades.
During all of these stays, I was traveling solo. After two years of adventuring around the world and sleeping in Airbnbs by myself, I’ve found that there are four essential things to check for when booking for one person.
