Airbnb is a community marketplace that showcases more than 600,000 private properties —from apartments to treehouses, castles, and villas—in more than 34,000 cities globally. It gives homeowners a new way to generate income through short lets of spare space that would otherwise lie empty.  Travelers can select from spare rooms in people's homes to unique spaces, whatever suits their taste and budget.
