Want to live like a king while you’re on vacation? Airbnb is an online marketplace and hospitality
service for anyone looking to lease or rent short-term lodging—anything from a single room to an entire
mansion fully decked out with a spa, pool, and BBQ grill. Many listings on the site are similar to homes you see
right here in Havasu. In fact, there are 17 pages of local rentals of various shapes and sizes that you can rent by
the day, week, month or even longer. You decide how long you want to stay and what accommodations are best
suited for your perfect vacation. To date, the company has over 4 million lodging listings in 65,000 cities and
191 countries and has over 260 million bookings.

Booking a stay is as simple as going onto Airbnb.com and searching for places in the city of your
choice. You deal with the host directly, typically the owner of the home, and rates are generally inexpensive.
You can view all the properties available, check date availabilities, view photos, book a reservation, and pay
online—all without ever leaving the website.

A perfect example of collaborative sharing, Airbnb does not own any actual real estate, but rather serves as a broker that receives a percentage of service fees for every night booked. In some instances, the host may be living in the home and you end up sharing that property with them. In other instances, the owner is off-site so you have the whole house for the length of your stay, all to yourself.

Here is one sample listing for a home in Havasu available through Airbnb:
1100 SQ FT. SPECTACULAR FREESTANDING NEW LUXURIOUS HOUSE THAT SLEEPS 7 COMFORTABLY. HAVING VIEWS FROM YOUR NEW MEMORY FOAM BED MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE ON SOME REMOTE TROPICAL ISLAND WITH EXOTIC BREATHTAKING MILLION DOLLAR VIEWS OF THE ISLAND, MOUNTAINS & WATER! 2 MINUTES TO DOWNTOWN, ISLAND, LONDON BRIDGE & BEST BEACHES & PARKS. INDOOR JACUZZI JET TUB/XL TILE SHOWER! 10 PERSON HOT TUB/SWIM SPA ALL SEATS HAVE HYDROTHERAPY JETS! LARGE FIRE-PIT TILE TABLE! LICENSED & REGISTERED

Not only does this listing rent for an incredible price of only $139 per night, it has a lot more details and
photos of the interior/exterior within the description. Airbnb also allows you to contact the host to ask any
questions.
