Airbnb is a community marketplace for people to list, discover and book unique spaces around the world through mobile phones or the internet. Whether an apartment for a night, a castle for a week, or a villa for a month, Airbnb connects people to unique travel experiences at any price point, with over 500,000 listings in 33,000 cities and 192 countries.

With a growing community of users, Airbnb also provides an easy way for people to monetize their extra space and showcase it to an audience of millions.

Founded in August 2008, Airbnb has acquired several of its competitors, including Accoleo, CrashPadder, NabeWise, and Localmind.

Airbnb was founded in August 2008 by Brian Chesky and Joe Gebbia, and is currently headquartered in San Francisco, California, USA.
