10 Best Airbnb in Malindi & Watamu Kenya

Airbnb is one of the cheapest ways to find accommodation while traveling. Over the years, Airbnb has given traditional hotels a run for their money. More and more people are opting for this type of accommodation, and I understand why.

If you’ve never heard of Airbnb, it is the coolest kid on the block when it comes to accommodations.

Airbnb is an online marketplace that lets people rent out their properties or spare rooms to guests.

I personally have used Airbnb and I can attest to the importance of it especially when you are on a budget or in need of quick short accommodation.

As you plan your dream trip to the Kenyan Coast, make sure to check out the Best Airbnb in Malindi & Watamu.
