Furry Fun in Angeles: How TJ’s Airbnb Redefined Staycations for our 5-Paw Crew

Okay, let’s get this furreal: dragging five furbabies from Quezon City to Baguio straight up sounded like a bad 80s movie. Long car rides, whimpering pups, and questionable bathroom breaks – yeah, not the vibe. So, we made a pit stop in Angeles, Pampanga, and checked in to TJ’s Airbnb – a haven for humans and hounds alike.

Listen, finding pet-friendly accommodations with a pack as big as ours is like finding a truffle without a pig – rare and oh-so-rewarding. Most places gave us the sniff-off, but TJ rolled out the welcome mat (and probably some extra lint rollers) as soon as we wagged our tails in his direction.

My First Time Trying Airbnb Was a Nightmare

The Airbnb Nightmare

My best friends and I are used to staying in hotels when we travel. We like the convenience and predictability of hotels. We know that when we arrive, our room will be clean and comfortable. That’s why we were so excited to try Airbnb for the first time. We thought it would be a fun and unique experience.

We found a great-looking Airbnb on the website. It was a spacious house with a pool and a patio, and it was located in a great neighborhood. We were so excited for our trip!

But when we arrived at the Airbnb, we were shocked. The house was old and dirty. The pool was green and the patio was covered in leaves. It was nothing like the house in the pictures on the Airbnb website.

To make matters worse, there was a huge spider and webs were everywhere. We were so worried for our furbabies and our infant.

We were so disappointed. We had traveled a long way to stay in this house.

Finding a Better Airbnb

The next morning, we were eager to leave the house and stay in another Airbnb, hoping it wouldn’t be disappointing, especially since we had to travel for 5 hours to get there.

We were lucky that the second Airbnb we booked was great. It was a beautiful house in a great resort location, and it was clean and well-maintained. We had a wonderful time staying there.

Why We Chose Airbnb

We also opted for Airbnb because of its broad pet-friendly options. We have five furbabies, and it can be difficult to find hotels that allow pets. With Airbnb, we were able to find houses that were perfect for us and our furry friends. We don’t want to leave them out, and it’s awesome to share the experience with them, after all, they are our family.

Lessons Learned

What I learned from my experience:

  • Be careful when booking an Airbnb. Read the reviews carefully and look at the pictures closely.
  • Don’t be afraid to contact the host before you book. Ask them any questions you have about the property.
  • If you arrive at the Airbnb and it’s not what you expected, don’t be afraid to leave. You can always find another place to stay.

I’m hoping that other people who are considering using Airbnb will read my story and be cautious. Airbnb can be a great way to save money and have a unique experience, but it’s important to be aware of the risks.
