5. Location
If you love the sound of the ocean or the the bright lights of Times Square, you probably want to book an Airbnb located on the beach or in the city. Choosing the right location will help you to enjoy your visit ten times more.

6. Read Through The Rules
It is imperative to understand what you’re booking and what you need to abide by. Rules are set forth to ensure the safety of both the host and the guest.
