Upgrades to Airbnb Categories

In May, Airbnb introduced a new way to search designed around Airbnb Categories. Today, they’re introducing six new categories:

Top of the world - Homes located around 10,000 feet above sea level, often with stunning views.

Adapted - Wheelchair-accessible homes verified to include step-free paths into the home, bedroom and bathroom.

Play - Homes with basketball courts, game rooms, trampolines, water slides and more.

Trending - Highly-rated homes that received more listing views compared to the previous week.

New - Homes added to Airbnb within the past 10 weeks.

Hanoks - Traditional Korean homes constructed of natural materials.

Airbnb is also improving what Categories are displayed. For example, when you launch the app, you'll see the Vineyards category if you recently searched for homes in Napa. In addition, you'll see more details when viewing categories in search results. For example, homes with amazing views will list the type of view, and homes near national parks will show the distance to the park entrance.
