The growth of Airbnb over less than a decade has been staggering. From its humble beginning as a couple in San Francisco who rented out their loft to make some extra money to a modern-day business with an operating income for $450 billion in 2017 (last known numbers), it’s been, for many homeowners and guests, something of a godsend.
But for others, not so much.
There are several groups of people who, for reasons, the traditional Airbnb setup just wouldn’t work as well as one would hope. But fortunately, there are plenty of smaller companies who cater to those in these niche markets.
