A friend recommended Air BNB as I like to go away during the weekends and I’d like to pass on the wisdom.
It’s a great site where you can book rooms/full apartments through other people. You have the option of something cheap & cheerful or something a bit fancier. You have a profile, you request a booking, if it’s approved you receive the address and payment is taken.
After your stay, you review your accommodation and they will review you.
It’s worldwide also, so you don’t have to limit yourself to “Staycations”.
I’ve booked with them 3 times so far, and will continue to do so!
