Whether you’re on a tight budget and just want a simple room, or you’re getting a group together for a lavish weekend getaway in a gorgeous country house, there’ll be an Airbnb that matches your destination preferences, budget and taste.
And excitingly, the platform has just made browsing for truly standout properties even easier with the launch of their ‘guest favourites’ collection. Guest favourites were selected for their great reviews and reliability – making them the most-loved homes on the rental platform.
