Slide 1 of 32: 
 Airbnb is
 an easy way to find a place to stay for a vacation or business
 trip, but you can find so much more than just an average
 apartment. 
 Unusual listings range in price, location, and budget, so
 there's something for everyone. 
 You can go rustic in a yurt, or upscale in a fully updated
 midcentury modern home.

 Silicon Valley is known as the home to tech companies like Apple,
 Facebook, and Google, but there's more to see and do than work.
 Cities, the ocean, and areas for hiking make Silicon Valley a
 destination for all kinds of reasons.
 The place you stay during your visit depends on the kind of trip
 you're looking for. If you want to enjoy wine and beautiful
 views, and you don't mind staying on the more rustic side of
 things, a yurt on a vineyard might be right for you. However, if
 you want to take the whole family, and stay plugged in while
 having access to nature, a luxe three-story cabin in Woodside
 might be more your style. 
 Whatever you're looking for, there's probably a listing that fits
 your needs without being boring. These options vary from under
 $100 a night to almost $1000 a night, so a budget shouldn't stop
 you from exploring.
