A woman traveling to the Indonesian island of Bali claims to have discovered something very strange after checking into her Airbnb.

Bree Robertson is a full-time traveler who runs Atypical Adventure, a travel blog and social media channel with tens of thousands of followers. On TikTok, Robertson (@atypical_adventure) often posts about the travel life she’s lived since quitting her nine-to-five job.

Bitcoin ETFs: what are they and how to invest in them?

But a recent video showed something a little less exciting. In the clip, posted in mid-July, Robertson claimed she arrived at her Airbnb in Bali only to find an “abandoned” house.

The clip shows what Robertson said was the house she booked through Airbnb. But the building looks empty and unprepared for guests.

Robertson then pointed to the overgrowth in the yard and smashed the windows of the rental house.

“Thank you, @airbnb,” Robertson captioned his post.

Speaking to Insider, Robertson said she booked Airbnb after seeing a plethora of good reviews. The property would have featured an infinity pool and an on-site restaurant. However, the restaurant would have been closed when he arrived.

Watch this tiny New York apartment living room get a makeover in just one day:

“The place was $80 and had great reviews,” Robertson wrote in a TikTok comment. “Air BnB also said the host had a 1 hour response time so I assumed they were still open.”

Robertson told Insider that she originally thought the incident was funny, but soon realized she had no place to spend the night. Luckily, she and her partner found another ad nearby. Robertson added that she got a refund from Airbnb almost immediately.

Still, commentators were clearly angered by his experience.

“Think you got scammed,” one user wrote.

“Such a shame,” added another. “It looks like a wonderful place if it’s still running.”

“There probably wasn’t anyone there since before the pandemic,” another user speculated.

Airbnb closures have been a problem in recent years, with COVID-19 significantly affecting the rental market in some areas. For example, a 2021 study by LendingTree found that some major cities saw over 40% of Airbnbs closed in the first year of the pandemic.

The TikToker post claims his Airbnb in Bali was actually an ‘abandoned’ building: ‘Think you got scammed’ appeared first on In The Know.

Fleet, a peer-to-peer car rental platform that allows motorists to rent their car, plans to raise €2m in the next six months to fund its expansion into the UK.

he company has secured a contract with a luxury car distributor that will use Fleet to rent cars to occasional drivers from more than 250 dealerships.

The platform, sometimes dubbed “the Airbnb of car rentals” to allow motorists to rent unused cars from their driveways, was launched five years ago by then-twenty-year-old Maurice Sheehy. Sheehy said the company is currently pitching venture capital funds and dealer groups, but is “open to talking to strategic private investors as well.”

“We have a B2B deal which will go live on the UK App Store this month,” said Sheehy, who declined to name Fleet’s new UK distribution partner.

Carmarkers and distributors are moving more and more from pure sales to leasing their fleet through pay-as-you-go platforms, aiming to further monetize their vehicle inventory and generate additional revenue streams.

Sheehy thinks this model will be popular in the UK at a time when consumers and retailers are under pressure, with the Bank of England warning that the UK economy will soon enter a period of recession.

“People might not be able to afford a car, or they might be waiting due to their current situation – but they will still need a car from time to time,” he said.

“So if dealers can’t sell that many cars, they’re going to have to have a facility to sustain their revenue.”

In 2019, Fleet partnered with Toyota to offer vehicle rental from car dealerships across Ireland through a new app called Toyota Dealer Rental.

The app allows drivers to rent a vehicle from a local dealership, for example to rent a van to move house or try out an electric or hybrid vehicle for a month before committing to a full purchase. Users can opt for a daily rental or a monthly subscription.

Paul Ringon and her husband had just one request when they opened their wedding registry in 2019: Delta Air Lines gift cards.

Both are avid travelers and tend to fly overseas at least twice a year. For Ringon, 37, and Wesley DeShaw, creating memories through travel is much more appealing than a KitchenAid stand mixer or any other material gift.

“We had already bought a house, we kind of had everything we needed,” the Fort Lauderdale-based real estate agent said. “Overall, we were like, if you’re going to get us something, get us a gift card to whatever airline we’re staying with.”

Of course you can drive north at the cabin this month – or, take 15 of your closest friends for a stay in two giant domes.

What is happening: The 8,000 square foot “Geodesic Dome Home” at Eden Prairie — two connected four-story domes that can accommodate at least 16 guests — is available for rent on Airbnb.

Features: Unique architecture, secret doors, indoor slides, practice green, bouncy castle and several balconies overlooking the woods.

  • More: The domes sit on 2 acres of private land and are a five-minute walk from Bryant Lake Park.

Reality check: Unfortunately you box put a price on pleasure. Domes cost $1,256 a night.

  • But if you have 15 friends, it’s only $78.50 per person!

Did you land a remote gig? Looking to pack up your laptop and live your life on the go? Need a week to recharge your batteries and relax?

The digital nomadic life is emerging in a multitude of forms, and organizations are responding with offers of remote work. From civic sweeteners and national incentives to short-term rental platforms, bridges are being built to connect people to jobs all over the planet.

Airbnb‘s Live and Work Anywhere initiative, for example, encourages its employees to live and work remotely with fair compensation and coordinated internal systems. After announcing the program in April, the travel app revealed partnerships with 20 of the world’s most remote destinations in July. These places not only make it easier for people to live and work from home from anywhere, but these collaborations also aim to support governments and restart economic pipelines and local businesses after more than two years of travel restrictions. .

One of the problems with a global travel diary is that many companies require remote workers to stay in the United States or their home country. Fortunately, Reviews.org has put together a quick and rough list of 10 great remote places in the United States to live as a wanderer. At The Manual, we draw inspiration from Airbnb and Reviews.org to compare digital nomad destinations in the United States and beyond. How do Seattle and the Canary Islands fit together? Keep reading to find out.

Seattle, Washington and the Canary Islands

View of Seattle, Washington

Seattle and the Canary Islands?! The Northwest Pacific against Macaronesia off the coast of Africa? What could these two have in common? Well, a lot actually.

Each of these outposts acts as international hubs. Each then offers a crackle of cultures. And each offers an incredible mix of nightlife, local flavors and access to the outdoors.

Seattle is in the northwest corner of the United States, just a few hours drive from Canada. Home to Amazon, Boeing and other international companies, there are plenty of cafes, libraries and other hubs to hook up. European and Asian influences blend with American flavors to offer a range of cuisines. The entertainment is endless, with great museums, musical hotspots and professional sports teams. A short ferry ride away are rural Vashon and Bainbridge Islands, as well as the vast Olympic National Forest, the country’s only continental rainforest. To the east are the Cascade Mountains, an all-weather adventure wonderland.

Likewise, the Spanish Canaries tick all the boxes for working in a digital nomad paradise. Located about 60 miles west of Morocco at its closest point, tourists come from all over the world to enjoy a multitude of activities. An important link between North America, Europe and Africa, these influences shape an irresistible blend of music, food and fun.

Teleworkers can participate and connect to Tenerife, Fuerteventura and/or Gran Canaria, the three largest islands of the archipelago. A solid infrastructure provides high-speed Internet access and multiple mobile hubs. When city life gets too much, nearby nature access includes forests, rivers, mountains, and the ocean. The southern region of the range offers spring-like weather all year round. And within the framework of the European Union, the cost of living is affordable.

San Francisco, California and Lisbon, Portugal

The two hilltop cities overlooking a large body of water, San Francisco and Lisbon, each offer eclectic urban lifestyles for the digital nomad on the go. One is just a bit more expensive than the other.

With many diverse and distinct cultures, an offbeat reputation, miles of running trails, and a character that precedes itself, San Francisco is one of the world’s great international capitals. San Francisco is also one of the most expensive cities to settle in. Ironically, it’s a great place to experience a living wage for a temporary stay. Whether it’s Friday through Monday or a month-long getaway, there’s plenty to keep visitors in and out of San Francisco busy.

What may be an extra hop, but a definitely cheaper choice is the Lisbon coast. Portugal’s capital wears its age like a wise philosopher, having “discovered” the world hundreds of years ago, and today its people and places exude charm and wisdom.

The sun shines 290 days a year in Lisbon and the temperature rarely drops below 60 degrees. Famous for its hospitality, the town welcomes newcomers and the streets are safe to stroll day and night. Like its Pacific cousin, much of Lisbon’s cuisine is dedicated to perfecting a thousand ways to cook seafood. This graceful age also welcomes the future with dozens of hubs for digital travelers.

Denver, Colorado and Cape Town, South Africa

Aerial view of Denver, Colorado

One landlocked and the other connecting two oceans, Denver and Cape Town may not seem comparable at first glance, but the mid-sized cities have a lot in common. Both towns are located at the foot of the mountains and each range provides a sunny and plentiful place to throw laptops for a while.

People flocking to Cape Town and Denver find futuristic urban hubs. These innovative cities are home to young urban tech workers from around the world. Major industry offers opportunities, as Denver is home to several military and government conglomerates, while Cape Town is home to several large chemical companies.

Both towns serve as medium-sized shopping malls surrounded by miles of rocky heights dotted with trails. Cape Town is surrounded by some of the best wine country in South Africa. From fresh lamb to ostrich and wild game to subtropical fruits and avocados, freshly picked meat and produce are plentiful. In Denver, foam is flowing with more than 140 breweries to date. Nourished by the ranches and farms of the Great Plains, Denver serves up some of the best fresh beef steaks, greens and potatoes in the West.

Atlanta, Georgia and Bangkok, Thailand

Bangkok, Thailand

Atlanta and Bangkok vibrate with a suffocating and sensual pulsation. The unofficial capitals of South and Southeast Asia, respectively, have a lot in common to offer unplugged travelers looking for short- and long-term stays.

Positioned as the center of the bullseye between India to the west, Australia to the south, Oceania to the east and China to the north, Bangkok is one of the most visited cities in the world. The capital of Thailand’s ancient kingdom, Bangkok, has been attracting visitors for thousands of years. Tourists rush headlong into a collision between cultural tradition and modernity. Stunning palaces and temples sit alongside skyscrapers and an endless web of humanity. From dark alleyways to exclusive restaurants, the food is world class and the hospitality is second to none. Not to mention the hundreds of beaches, jungles and wild greenery nearby.

Atlanta Botanical Garden

Likewise, Atlanta’s liveliness springs from its factories as well as its people. The “city in the forest” boasts dozens of parks, streams, and meandering paths through bright, welcoming neighborhoods. Southern hospitality and diverse businesses make up Funky Little Five Points, hip Midtown, historic Downtown and sophisticated Buckhead. Not only are black-owned businesses celebrated here, but Atlanta is known as a top destination for LGBTQ+ travel.

And if nature is calling, the Chattahoochee River leads the way to the North Georgia Mountains, the southernmost edge of the Appalachians.

Chicago, Illinois and Buenos Aires, Argentina

These two global cities share a remarkable history. Buenos Aires and Chicago each developed during the 19th century as inland conduits for transporting meat and grain from the fertile frontier to markets in the East. Today, the pair are still thriving cosmopolitan metropolises with a wealth of entertainment, food, fine experiences, and places that appeal to any wireless traveler.

Passion is alive in every city. Buenos Aires is the home of hot tango while Chicago sweats to the beat of the blues. These traditional styles are giving way to all kinds of musical offerings and stages of all sizes.

As ancient capitals of meat production, there’s no comparison to the assortment of cuts and casings, from frankfurters, kielbasa and T-bones in Chicago to bratwurst, chorizo​ ​and grilled flank steak in Buenos Aires.

A river tour in Chicago, Illinois
The manual

There is a character to Chicago and Buenos Aires, indicative of its western settlers and influenced by later immigrations. After the Europeans followed the great industry into the Windy City, the great migration flowed from the south. African Americans seeking freedom and jobs have left their indelible mark on the city. In Buenos Aires, waves of German and Japanese immigrants in the 20th century added a new spice to the Spanish colonial city.

Today, there are hundreds of bars, cafes, coworking offices and other places to connect and many vibrant and unique neighborhoods to hang digital hats in North and South American cultural hubs.

get out of there

There may not have been a better time in American history for remote work. Businesses and offices reshaped by COVID-19 policies are more lenient than ever on physical presence, and the post-pandemic world is just waiting to be explored.

Airbnb bans all properties that once housed slaves from its listings.

“Properties that once housed slaves have no place on Airbnb,” the company said in a statement to USA TODAY days after a TikTok post went viral about a “slave shack.” offered as a bed and breakfast on Airbnb. “We apologize for any trauma or grief created by the presence of this listing, and others like it, and that we did not act sooner to resolve this issue.”

Wynton Yates, the attorney whose TikTok post has gone viral, told USA TODAY, “If you only saw the interior photos, you wouldn’t have any idea the history of this building, and I think that to me it’s a mockery of the experience. … It’s the continued erasure of what the experience of slavery was.

PLamentation weddings used to be all the rage, but now it seems some people are taking to renting out former slave shacks for their personal enjoyment. An Airbnb site exhibited on Tik Tok has used its slave shack story as a selling point. With 68 reviews and a rating of 4.97

As Mic reported, the Offensive List host has “Superhost” status on Airbnb. The outlet noted that there were similar listings on the site despite claims to support diversity and inclusion. (Read the full article here). First reported on TikToker @LawyerWinton, the post has since been removed from Airbnb’s website.

Although the listing has since been removed from Airbnb, a reservation for Belmont Planation was still active on Booking.com on Saturday evening. The cabin is also listed on Booking.com as a “garden view cottage”. It lacks the colorful Airbnb site description and is described as a simple bungalow with no mention of slave quarters.

On Saturday night, the Belmont Plantation website returned a 404 error suggesting it had been taken offline entirely, at least temporarily. An article on Only In Your State notes that the cabin was built in the 1830s as a slave cabin. Later, it would have been used as a doctor’s office for “local farmers”.

The website description fails to combat the depravity of vacationing on a site. Unlike the original inhabitants of the hut, the “guests” of the chalet can join the people of the big house for meals, including breakfast.

A 2018 profile of the plantation called it the last of the “pre-war plantations” in the Mississippi Delta. At one point, 80 enslaved people resided on the property. It remained in the family of its owner until the early 1920s.

In the mid-1940s, former Governor Dennis Murphree purchased the site and converted it into a hunting lodge. According to the listings, he is currently owned and operated by his relatives.

No amount of “meticulous restoration” given to a plantation and surrounding properties can erase the stench of oppression and white supremacy. But who cares as long as you get pretty pictures, right?

Located in Greenville, Mississippi, in the heart of the Delta, the Belmont Plantation was established a few years before the outbreak of the Civil War. Comments on the listing on Booking.com and from a few former guests on Facebook show an apparent disconnect between their enjoyment of their journey into “history” and the brutal nature of plantation life for enslaved black people.

It goes far beyond “commemorating the past”. Voyeurism in organizing events, respite on plantations and accompanying slave huts shows a particular depravity of mind and spirit.

Mic discovered several other sites, including Georgia and New Orleans. There has been similar outrage over the use of old Holocaust-related sites. The final season of “Stranger Things” was partly set in a former Nazi prison turned Airbnb. Reports indicate

In 2019, NewsOne covered a racist Airbnb host who called a black guest a “monkey”. This follows years of Airbnb being exposed for racism. The #AirbnbWhileBlack hashtag was trending in 2016 with stories of black guests who had racist experiences with Airbnb.

A New Zealand couple who spent over $4,500 renting an Airbnb in Toronto were evicted by police in the middle of the night after a man showed up claiming the unit was his.

Syeda Farhana Shariff and Shariff Masudul Haque have rented the apartment, advertised as a “luxury two-bedroom condo”, located next to the CN Tower on Front Street, for a month.

“It was nowhere near luxury,” Haque told CTV News Toronto on Friday. “It didn’t look good and it’s a poorly maintained property.”

The tourists were more than two weeks into their month-long stay in Toronto when around 1 a.m. Wednesday, they received an unexpected knock on the door from a stranger.

“He said we had to leave. I was really surprised by that,” Haque said.

According to Haque, the man claimed he was the rightful tenant of the apartment.

CTV News Toronto viewed the couple’s Airbnb confirmation email, which shows they paid to rent the apartment from July 5 to August 2.

Haque and his wife said they initially refused to leave, but the man then called the police.

“He called the cops, and the cops said they were convinced by the paperwork that he was the leaseholder,” Haque said. “The police told us to leave the place within 30 minutes before things got out of hand. They didn’t care how we did it, they just wanted us out.”

Haque said they decided there was no point in arguing with the police, packed their things and went to the lobby of the building.

Haque said he spent two hours on hold to speak to someone with Airbnb.

“They didn’t do anything except say they will review the situation,” Haque said.

Haque said the couple found another place to stay for the rest of the night, but had to pay $580.

In a statement to CTV News Toronto, police said they responded to a call Wednesday for an “unwanted guest in a building.”

Police say a man arrived at an apartment to find two people he doesn’t know.

“The couple collected their belongings and left the unit upon police arrival and confirmation that the complainant is the rightful tenant of the unit,” police said.

Haque said the couple received a message from Airbnb on Thursday afternoon saying they would be refunded, but still had no response as to what actually led to the incident.

In a statement to CTV News Toronto on Friday, an Airbnb spokesperson said they “take this incredibly seriously.”

“After an investigation, the listing has been deactivated and we have fully refunded customers for this experience.”

Haque said they were grateful for the refund, but thinks Airbnb could have been “more proactive” in helping them in the moment.
