The Points Guy: 12 Tips for Scoring the Perfect Airbnb

Do you guys follow The Points Guy? If you don’t, you need to! He’s our go-to guru on all things related to finding great deals on travel. And, you know, we’re all about great deals on travel! He’s put together 12 Tips for Scoring the Perfect Airbnb and we couldn’t agree with his advice more!

We know that many of you only get a select few days of vacation to try and live your best life and, let’s be real, finding the best places to go, things to do and places to stay to make the most of those days can be….. stressful. Home Sweet Hudson really strives to make it easy to avoid missing out on awesome things to do while exploring the Hudson Valley & Catskills via our Concierge Services.

We ask each and every guest if they would like help with putting together an itinerary, suggestions on places to go and things to do. We even offer to pre-stock the fridge with groceries (Vegans, Paleo, Whole 30—whatever your diet, we don’t judge!) or, more importantly, with wine from our favorite local shops like Kingston Wine Co.

Planning a trip this season? Home Sweet Hudson’s got a portfolio of homes that you can choose from and a team ready to help plan your stay!

We'd love to connect with you.

The Nordic Retreat is exactly, if not better, than what you'd expect. It's upscale, yet cozy and private, but not completely remote. Would definitely book again.
