Have you ever booked accommodation via the popular short-term lodging app, Airbnb? In the app, users can browse through listings of rooms and houses put up by hosts, complete with attractive photos, detailed descriptions, and a list of available facilities. These listings are not unlike conventional property listings, and it’s a competition to attract lodgers via the property’s location, nearby amenities and guest ratings.

While these picks from Estate123.com aren’t actual Airbnb accommodation, we think they have high potential as popular listings in the ‘home-sharing’ website for travellers who need short-term lodging in popular locations around Malaysia.
