Book in advance.
Sometimes, it's worth taking a chance on a newbie.
The term "Superhost" can be deceiving, and doesn't guarantee a quality experience.
Study a listing's photos carefully.
Pick a place that's close to attractions, or places you plan on frequenting during your trip.
Airbnb will recommend listings for you, but they won't always be relevant.
If things aren’t clear on the listing, just ask the owner a question by sending them a message through Airbnb. They’ll almost always pre-approve you, giving you a few days to decide before you need to book.
If the check-out time isn’t ideal, you can usually ask the host if they’ll accommodate.
When searching for apartments, be sure to "favorite" your top listings.
Toiletries vary wildly from one place to another.
Smell is really important! When reading through reviews on a listing, be on the lookout for stink warnings.
