“The listing for this stellar Old City condo describes it as “Miami-inspired,” which is true in the sense that it looks like the office where you go to sign a short-term lease for a Lamborghini.  Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.  If there’s any cattiness in that description, it’s just because I’m jealous.”

HOW TO AIRBNB YOUR PLACE LIKE A PRO

If you haven’t skipped out on a stark hotel room and opted for the cozy, home-team advantage of an Airbnb, you might want to reconsider your on-the-road rituals.
