I had heard Airbnb mentioned randomly on various websites and such but I honestly wasn’t quite sure what it was until we started planning our Road Trip and finally decided to check out the website. I don’t know why I waited so long.
I started looking in the LA/Venice/Santa Monica areas and was surprised at how nice and affordable all the places were that were popping up. The idea of having a full kitchen, parking, and possibly bikes to use for less than $200/night seemed too good to be true but there they were.
I particularly love that the price is all laid out there on the page with no hidden fees. (I think.) The pictures are so helpful and the reviews are really swaying my decision to stay in one. This guest house is my current favorite.
Turns out a few of my co-workers have used Airbnb and all had pleasant experiences too. Know of anything I should be weary of?
It’s been a quiet yet delightful week (that’s right, i said delightful) but as always, I am gladly welcoming the weekend.
Went to our friends bbq this weekend and spotted this house that I pretty much wanted to pick up and take home with me. This small town in NJ along the water is still working on rebuilding after damage from Hurricane Sandy. Flood insurance regulations insist that your house must be 14 feet off the ground in order to rebuild. So crazy! I loved everything about this house though - the color is a deep blue and the front porch has not one but two fans. Perfect for sipping cocktails under on hot summer days.
This place below is just so stinking cute. This is the entrance to my friend’s neighbors place and we’ve been watching over the past two years as they rebuilt this two bedroom in Avon-by-the Sea (not Sandy related). Now I want a lattice for my backyard.
Cute restaurants with outdoor seating.
Spending my vacation this week tackling some of these to dos.
Mostly, that means a lot of painting. I’m so ready to have a few less beige walls in this house.
I finally put together a to do list for the house filled with all the things we need to get done and buy, which has all been floating around my head for weeks. It’s not pretty. I saved you from having to scroll through it to get to the more interesting posts on your dash. You’re welcome.
But, if you’d like to see the sheer amount of crap I was hanging onto for over a month, feel free to read on. Feels so great to have it all written out.
