A man who wants to rent a three-bed flat in the Melbourne suburb of Mount Druitt has had his dream come true.
Key points:Airbnb extended stays are available for up to four people with an airbnb booking on their propertiesThe house in question is located on the ground floor of a flat in Mount DruittleAirbnb is looking for people who want to stay in the flat for up from four nights a week, up to three nights a monthThe owner says the accommodation is in the “most beautiful, beautiful, most comfortable” part of the countryThe man, who did not want to be named, says his Airbnb booking is currently at a “very high” level and he is happy with the arrangement.
Airbnb, which lets people book short-term accommodation on Airbnb and other short-stay properties, said its listings were looking for four people in the same house for a three night stay.
“We’re currently looking for two people to stay for four nights, three nights, and we’re looking for three nights,” Airbnb Australia’s director of community and public engagement, Katie Hickey, said.
“The house is currently the most beautiful, the most comfortable and the most welcoming we’ve seen anywhere.”
Ms Hickey said there was a need for more accommodation, with people wanting to stay longer, and Airbnb was looking to find more affordable options.
“This is a really exciting time for Airbnb,” she said.
Airbnbs website is full of listings for rooms and beds available for rent.
“It’s a great opportunity for people to come and stay for three days and then return to the city for two nights, or two nights and three nights.”
There’s always the opportunity to rent accommodation in a place of your choice.
“In many cases, Airbnb will provide the accommodation you want, but there’s always room for negotiation, so you’re always free to explore what you can offer.”
Airbnb also provides a platform to find homes that are not available to the public.”‘
We are not a hotel’Ms Hiccups website states that the flat was booked on January 20, 2019.”
Our flat has a balcony, two rooms, two bathrooms and a kitchen,” it states.”
As the host, we do not offer the luxury of having a hotel or an apartment in the house.
“Therefore, we are not able to offer accommodation for a short time or overnight stays.”
If you are interested in sharing a room, a bedroom, or a bathroom with us, we will have the opportunity for you to share them.”‘
The best value for money’Airbnb said that the property was not the best value it could offer.
Ms Hickeys website states: “We are currently looking to move the property closer to our CBD and into an area of the CBD we have recently expanded our range of accommodation in.”
These new apartments are located in the most picturesque location in Mount Dukes.”
Each apartment is fully equipped with a private shower, separate kitchen, and a private bathroom.
“All of these amenities are on top of the apartment itself, making it the best bang for your buck in the CBD.”‘
People are moving out of the suburbs’The flat was the site of a property eviction in December, when a tenant was evicted after his rental application was rejected.
“While this is an extremely distressing event, Airbnb is committed to providing the best possible accommodation for people in Mount Davids area,” Ms Hiccys website states.
She said the apartment was sold and a new property has been purchased, which has now become available for a new tenant.
“Unfortunately, this time around we had to move a few people out of our area of Mount Davies.”
So, we’re very grateful to Airbnb and are really excited to be able to continue our work in Mount Davies.
