Select your home type

When guests book your place, they want to know what they’ll be getting. Choose the home type that best describes your place, and make sure you provide additional (and accurate) details.

Entire place

  • Guests will have the whole place to themselves, including a private entrance and no shared spaces.
  • An entire place usually includes a bedroom, a bathroom and a kitchen.
  • Do make sure to note if you’ll be on the property (for example, “Host occupies first floor of the home”).


  • Guests will have their own private bedroom with a door for sleeping.
    • Other areas, such as a kitchen, living room or bathroom could be shared.
    • Bathrooms can be shared, private and attached, or dedicated exclusively to the guest. You can note this in your Listing details.
    • Learn more about Rooms.

    Shared room

    • Guests will be sleeping in a bedroom or a common area that could be shared with others.
    • It helps to note how many people they might be sharing with.
