Airbnb App: Live Like A Local

by Jun 29, 2018Travel Resources18 comments

If Airbnb was a contact in my little black book, the page would be worn out. Dogeared page corners, letters, and numbers a bit smudged because of beer spills and coffee stains, Marilyn Monroe type, red lipstick kiss imprints…Ok, the last part is a bit of a stretch but honestly, that my friend is how much I use the Airbnb app.

Airbnb App: Booking homes from local hosts in 191+ countries

LaTorre Fratelli

“Staying at Kali LaTorre is like visiting a friends place for coffee. Talking and laughing late into the night. As soon as we arrive she greets us with “Welcome Home!” and home is exactly what her place feels like.” She has become a good friend of ours and I recommend staying at her place.

View our reviews from some of our favorite Airbnb Hosts:

I’ve hosted over 100 guests in the past 6 months and Gordana and Chris fall into the 1% category of people who make me live for this job. These are good people. I could write an essay on what that means but I have only 400 words left. When they arrive to your house you will understand. Your mind will immediately feel at ease when they walk into the door. Engaging conversation will ensue. When you go to sleep at night you will feel secure and happy that your home is filled with positive energy. And then when they leave you will feel very, very sad. Ciao Gordana and Chris your visit was too short! Please come back to visit me again before next Easter–one year is too long! Hugs, Kali

Hosting Chris – was also meeting a very great person. He is a professional video editor and we made a great job about promoting Budapest in videos and on his web. I was happy to show him around and be part of his project. He is very funny, full of heart and open minded. He is not a biker but he still joined me to ride the bicycle because its really the easiest way to see Budapest. I hope to see him again. Fully recommended guest.

Gordana and Chris are really awesome! Forward thinkers, so interesting to talk with, very funny, great communicators and at the same time patient, respectful and very, very clean! It was a very pleasant experience!! I totally recommend them to any future hosts

Private Feedback:
Hello guys, How are you? I was just curious if you got back to your normal Toronto paper system yet or you have brought the Greek one with you?!! hahaha  

The plumber said the pipe was dripping, but it’s all fixed now. Thank you for your patience!! Cheers, Tatiana

Chris – Gordana’s boyfriend- is a great guy. I had to work a lot and he really respected that I was terribly tired and did not talk too much. Stefan always said that I have to talk to him because he is so interesting and nice, so I did and we talked many hours over a glass of wine and it was very nice and comfortable- he even made ME feel at home!:)! I learned a lot about life in Canada and about Chris profession as a documentary filmer (he gives you a very nice view of many different cities and things on ( It was a great pleasure to get to know him and as a guest, he is just perfect. We would definitely love to welcome him again and hope we stay in contact!

Gordana’s visit and Chris were great, are very polite, respectful, neat, clean and quiet. Chris had a very good relationship with my son, it was noted that a good teacher of children. Both are very nice and pleasant. I hope to return again.
