We had our first Airbnb experience on our Purina Farms trip last weekend. Our breeder booked one and invited us to stay there too. Mom has been leery of staying at an Airbnb, so it would be a good way to see what it is like. It is located in Pacific, just a ten minute drive from Purina Farms. Not only is it closer than decent hotels, it is a lot less expensive too.
From the house to the show site, is where we hopped onto Route 66 every day. The house was clean and convenient. It is not a palace but it didn’t need to be anything fancy as we came back later at night, slept, and left again in the morning. This plate greeted us when we came into the house. Nancy is our breeder. The walls are full of quotes like the one on this wall, and also art pieces. One could say the walls were totally cluttered with stuff, but it isn’t like it was in the way.
Mom finds this odd Kleenex box in the main bathroom rather odd and slightly disgusting. It does fit well into the home decor, though.
There is a lot of space in the yard, but it is not fenced, so no place to race and chase. Even out in the yard, there is stuff everywhere. This lizard is on the post of the sidewalk leading up to the house. In the background you can see the bird bath and other stuff sitting around.
The frog is on the front window. It is a big metal frog, over a foot long and wide. We think it is trying to see what all of us dogs are up to in the house. There were seven of us dogs total but we didn’t hang out together. The house is too small for an all out chase and wrestle party.
Right next to the door to go into the house is another colorful lizard. It too appears to be spying on us.
We didn’t have much room to go for walks because there is a road out in front of the house and no walkway. Across the road is a place called the Landing Hub. It looks very nice, so we checked that out. This plane is outside in the parking area.
The place is actually a Boutique Hotel. We looked it up online. It is kind of a fancy Airbnb style hotel, and very modern.
Our first Airbnb experience went well. We are not sure if we would book one on our own or look for a hotel next time we travel. At least we have a feel for how it all works.
