Why stay in an Airbnb?
Whether you’re staying in a private apartment or shared house, visitors can get in touch with their hosts through the Airbnb mobile app. Use the chat for fast and efficient communication. Any questions about your trip, what to do or where to go – your host can help.
Lots of Airbnbs provide city or neighbourhood guides with helpful suggestions for things to do in your destination – like a favourite coffee shop or unique (or cheap) pubs and restaurants. Some even include transit information, directions to amenities like grocery stores or gas stations and the availability of public transport. This is a great way for travellers to find the best local spots as hosts usually include what they’ve come to love about their city from years of living there!
Save some time by booking with Airbnb rather than spending years on Google to find out what’s around you.
Basic backpacker or fancy business person? Airbnb aims to create a cosy escape for EVERY type of traveller! No matter your budget, you’ll find something within your price range, from an entire home to a room in a shared house. There are over six million unique places to choose from.
Some places only charge per night and not per person. This usually works out a lot cheaper for big groups like families or if you are travelling with friends. Just split the bill at the end and everyone benefits!
Even the smaller rentals sometimes have more than one bedroom or a pull-out couch. Remember to request extra linen whenever you want to make use of that and your host will provide you with everything you need. To make sure your place is exactly what you’re looking for, you can also filter the rentals for amenities like kitchen, TV, Wifi and much more.
Worried about safety? Airbnb wants every guest to be safe and secure. They require hosts to have a keyed door lock and an interior deadbolt or chain. The privacy inside the rental depends on what kind of place you are looking for but you can always find details in the booking description.
Remember that you are living in someone’s home – they want to keep it safe, too. Some properties even have CCTV and a doorman so you don’t have to worry about any undesired visits.
Airbnb also has a 24/7 emergency line with someone ready to assist you in case of any problem. They’re even able to provide a driver, book you a hotel or send a doctor in a medical emergency.

If you have a few too many ‘Sex on the Beaches‘, you could pick worse places to sleep off your hangover! The apartment is light and cosy, and you can properly starfish in the comfy double bed! And a kitchenette means you can whip up some stodgy hangover food – not that there’s a shortage of places to eat nearby.
Finally, there’s a swimming pool too, what a lovely way to cool off before going again the following night!

What to Pack for your Tenerife Airbnb
These essentials will make your Airbnb stay easier and maybe loads nicer.
1. Active Roots Microfiber Towel: Most Airbnb’s provide towels, but I always keep my own handy on my travels in case I can’t get the linens cleaned during a long stay. The Active Roots Microfiber Towel doesn’t just sound fancy, it kinda is fancy. The super comfy material is absorbent and quick-drying – perfect for after a shower or a quick jump into the water. Use it as a beach towel, picnic blanket or yoga towel too. Lightweight and compact, it’ll hardly take up any space in your suitcase.
2. Universal Travel Adapter: Nothing is worse than being on holiday, having your phone on 1% and scrambling to find an adapter on the streets. Get a Universal Travel Adapter before you head off. It fits every major type of wall plug. With the 5 USB ports, you can even plug in multiple devices and charge them at the same time – having this little tool can be a total game-changer.
3. Active Roots Water Bottle: Most Airbnbs provide potable (drinkable) water. Have a bottle to fill up so you can take that water on your rambles instead of buying disposable plastic bottles. The Active Roots Water Bottle is great for travellers who are aware of plastic pollution and want to reduce their single-use plastic consumption – no need to buy drinks from the supermarket anymore. The stainless-steel material will keep your drinks cold or hot for up to 24 hours. Stay hydrated throughout your entire holiday with this cool bottle!
4. TRTL Travel Pillow: I don’t have anything to make long-haul flights or bus rides any shorter. But…. The TRTL Travel Pillow will give your neck and head so much support that you’ll actually be able to get some proper rest. The ergonomic design, with its adjustable interior support, is absolutely unique and was scientifically engineered to keep you comfy and safe. Including a step-by-step guide and a waterproof bag, you’ll never travel without this pillow again.
5. Carbon Monoxide Detector: Many homes already have CM detectors hardwired in, but regulation hasn’t caught up to technology in some areas. Most accommodations are not obligated to install protections or monitors, which is why owning your own portable device comes in very handy. The waterproof and long-lasting monitor will send out visual and audible alarms, before the carbon monoxide reaches a dangerous level.
6. Reusable Shopping Bag: Getting rid of some plastic in your life might even make it a little bit better. Like the reusable shopping bag for example. There’s no need to buy plastic bags at the checkout or have a massive amount of stuff in one cupboard back at home. Using the eco-friendly reusable shopping bag will make your shopping trip much more enjoyable while you’re reducing your single-use plastic consumption at the same time.
