Top 3 Affordable Luxurious Airbnb/Vrbo/Homeaway Rentals in Miami Beach
When AirBnB was first started, it was a service that encouraged people to rent out their spare room to travelers. Homeowners were encouraged to let these travelers put an “airbed” in a spare room so that they could travel in a more economical way and feel more at home while they were abroad. The service quickly caught on and expanded.
Now, many people travel the world using this type of service. But instead of using a spare room and an air mattress, they are indulging in luxury apartment rentals and luxury resorts.
