    I’m a tourist coming into Spain for the first time and just hearing about the Airbnb stuff. I may not be a thrift spender but I love to enjoy luxury when I can. I’m definitely choosing a cool spot here and making my trip down count, please. I had no idea Malaga Airbnb were this beautiful!!! On the way back from Andalucia we are also looking for Airbnb near Malaga airport, can you recommend any good ones?

    It never fails to amaze me how cheaply a super nice AirBnB Malaga room can be had. £32 a night for a little apartment with an entire kitchen and everything? Crazy. Don’t get me wrong, the more expensive rooms and hotels look super nice, but when you’re trying to save money… And heck, it’s not like you’re going to be spending a lot of time in your room anyway, right? It only makes sense to skimp on your accommodations (within reason) and spend your money on other things.
