Flexible ways to search
Search for monthly stays
Looking to settle in a little longer? We’ve introduced a simpler and more flexible way to search for monthly stays. Listings that accept monthly stays (28 nights or more) can offer plenty of benefits, from amenities that make guests feel right at home to discounted rates.
How it works
Guests can choose the Months tab to add their start date and easily customize the length of their stay using an innovative dial.
Start as early as the current day, a week or month out, or choose a specific calendar date, then use the dial to choose how many months to stay. It’s even possible to select flexible start and end dates.
Search results for monthly stays will show the average monthly rates, and listing pages will highlight popular amenities for longer stays in addition to those matching search filters. When checking out a listing’s reviews, those from guests who stayed 28 nights or longer will generally be displayed first.
Search by Categories
Bags are packed and not sure where to go? If guests need inspiration, they can browse Airbnb Categories—collections based on a stay’s unique style, location, or proximity to an activity—to help them find the stay (and style) that’s right for them. Guests can discover more flexible ways to travel—browsing millions of homes they never knew existed.
If guests want to stay in an architectural dream house (think Frank Lloyd Wright), they can check out the Design category, a collection of over 20,000 homes chosen for their iconic structure and interiors. If guests want to stay among nature, they can browse the National Parks category to find homes near places like Zion National Park and the Grand Canyon.
How it works
If a guest searches for a specific destination, their search results will include all listings. In addition, Categories will be displayed, making it even easier to discover incredible homes within (or just beyond) their search area.
If they don’t search for a specific destination, a selection of Categories may appear depending on seasons, location, and any previous guest searches.
Search by Split Stays
Want to split longer stays between two different homes?
Guests can try using Split Stays—a feature that pairs two consecutive stays for the span of their dates, allowing them to explore different homes, neighborhoods, or even different destinations, during their trip.
For example, if they’re browsing the Surfing category, Split Stays may show them a pair of homes in Santa Barbara and La Jolla, and then display the distance between both stays on a map so they’ll know where both homes are (and which stay is first). Once they select a Split Stay, they’re guided through an easy-to-use interface to book each stay—one home at a time.
