What are the AirBnB alternatives outside the United States
April 27, 2014 11:06 AM Subscribe
I'm looking for AirBnBs for international travel, probably especially for Asia particularly Japan, and for the Scandinavian countries. I'm mostly interested in services for medium-term durations -- say, two to six weeks. Sites offering unusual housing (e.g. converted barns, lighthouses, treehouses) would be interesting to me, as would heritage sites and retreat-like spaces such as temples and monasteries that offer accommodation for nonreligious people. I'm interested in both urban and rural destinations.

AirBnB works pretty well for me, and I'm experienced as well with services like HomeAway. I'm most interested in niche (unusual/retreat/boutique) sites for international travellers, and in whatever sites local people use in their own countries, although ideally the latter would be accessible to people who speak English only. Thanks for any suggestions you can offer :)
