About Behind the Stays

When COVID hit, we decided to break out of our 750-square foot apartment in Washington, DC, and beta test the digital nomad lifestyle by hopping around to new Airbnbs every 2-4 weeks. If you care to follow our personal journey and watch us pretend to be Instagram influencers, you can do so at AirGnZ.

After our first couple of Airbnbs, we found ourselves talking most nights about the character of the bungalow, apartment, or lake house we were staying in. Our hosts were all fantastic communicators, but there’s only so much you can learn via the guest book and the occasional “check-in” texts.

We were hungry to learn more about the story behind the place. Was this their first home? What’s up with the mural in the bathroom? Was the dining table custom made? Did they build the home from the ground up specifically to rent out on Airbnb?

And that’s when the idea of hosting a podcast that featured the stories of the hosts behind the stays was born.

Our goal is to use this space to bring you the stories behind your favorite Airbnbs and the hosts who’ve made them memorable.
