I have mentioned my infatuation and success with airbnb.com in the past (HERE & HERE) and so it continues. While in Denver this past week, I stayed at a cute little vintage apartment in the City Park / Cheesman Park neighborhood. (I’m still learning the neighborhoods) I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: in my opinion, renting an apartment is sooo much better than staying in a hotel (in most situations) while traveling.
At the mention of renting someones apartment for a few days, people ask funny questions. Does someone live there? YES, typically. Are they there while you are there? NO, I always choose to rent an entire apartment that I will have to myself. Isn’t the owner nervous you are going to take their stuff? I DON’T KNOW…. probably not. Haha! I know it’s a foreign concept to shack up in someones place for a night or two, but it works. You just have to try it to believe it.
It was nice to be in an apartment with a kitchen during the big snow storm so I didn’t have to go out for food. I loved having a cozy place to stay in on those cold days, it almost felt like home….
