Stargazer’s Retreat in Joshua Tree, California

We have officially found the perfect blend of National Park exploration and Airbnb relaxation. Meet Stargazer’s Retreat: an Airbnb you’ll mistake for a private resort that just so happens to bump up to the back of Joshua Tree National Park. This was a flawless stay. We’d spend our mornings hiking through the delightfully Seussian Joshua trees, and pass our afternoons unwinding at the most opulent Airbnbs we’ve discovered yet. After days of frolicking, we hadn’t

Beautiful Two Bedroom Home in New Orleans

In late October, 17,000 data geeks (myself included) descended upon New Orleans for an annual tech conference of outlandish proportions.

Cherry Valley Farm

Perched between the idyllic towns of Bethlehem and Littleton, we discovered Cherry Valley Farm in New Hampshire’s White Mountains. In our starkest Airbnb transition to date, we departed from Brooklyn on a Saturday morning after a month of New York City overdrive and arrived that afternoon to the soft serenity of this mountain farm.
