  • Amman Marriott

    Amman Marriott

    The Marriott wasn’t my first choice, perhaps not even my second, but they came through with a world class experience. The more I travel, the more I attempt to stray away from hotel chains and choose Homestays or Airbnb type properties. This Marriott was equipped with three full restaurants and a piano lounge; all great […]

  • Airbnb Recoleta

    Airbnb Recoleta

    I could not have picked a better area then Recoleta. In addition Juan Carlos was the perfect host. He was very attentive to my needs! I found the apartment and the neighborhood to be very safe which made me feel comfortable since I was traveling alone. After walking out the front door I had markets, […]

  • Havana Airbnb

    Havana Airbnb

    When staying in a foreign country, location is key. I could have not been more pleased with the location of Claudia and Sergio’s apartment. After walking out the front door, you have a gelato shop a block to your left, and to your right, four restaurants with a plethora of options. A little further down, […]

  • Le Meridien Cairo Airport

    Le Meridien Cairo Airport

    If convenience is something you value while booking a hotel reservation, you will not find anything in Egypt more convenient than Le Meridien Cairo Airport. You literally walk through immigration, down the escalator to baggage claim, through customs and up a ramp that leads to a skybridge. That skybridge brings you to an elevator that drops […]

  • Peponi- My Kigali home

    Peponi- My Kigali home

    I have been truly fortunate to have had really great experiences with Airbnb, and my time with Vysakh was no different. My room at Peponi consisted of three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a full kitchen. The inclusion of breakfast served as the cherry on top. This Kigali stay was suppose to be my escape from […]

  • My First Airbnb Experience

    My First Airbnb Experience

    I am not always the first onboard with change. When traveling I found myself in a routine of researching the closest Sheraton or Marriott locations, simply out of habit. The free night stays you receive from collecting so many points always made it difficult to try something different. Who doesn’t like free? However, I wanted […]

  • Blooming Lotus

    Blooming Lotus

    “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” – Mark 8:36 (KJV) Falling in love with the book Eat, Pray, Love written by Elizabeth Gilbert and a basic love for yoga led me over to Google in search of Balinese yoga retreats. Blooming Lotus had […]

  • Sleeping Giant Rainforest Lodge

    Sleeping Giant Rainforest Lodge

    My experience in Belize was far better than I could have ever expected and I owe that to Sleeping Giant Rainforest Lodge. I went to Belize to live out my personal definition of a vacation, which is making time for nothing except R & R (Rest and Relaxation). The way I visualized my trip I […]

  • Reykjavik Lights Hotel

    Reykjavik Lights Hotel

    If you can imagine spending a night in the best Ikea you can imagine an experience at the Reykjavik Lights Hotel. This centrally located hotel is modern and unique in the best ways. Everything from the continental breakfast area to the setup of the guest rooms are strategically arranged with comfort in mind. I think […]

  • DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Hotel Zanzibar – Nungwi

    DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Hotel Zanzibar – Nungwi

    A canopy on the bed set for a queen, a beach overlooking the Indian Ocean, and Tanzanian culture busting out the seams. I can’t think of another place I would have preferred to be in that moment or a place in Zanzibar that could have offered a better experience. Great weather, great food, and the […]
