The complex is created in partnership with Miami’s Newgard Development Group, and is officially called “Niido Powered by Airbnb”. The building will include 324 units, so if your first choice for vacation rental is sadly unavailable you’ll have plenty of similarly-styled homes to choose from.
Here’s how it works: When residents of the soon-to-open building (there is no set date yet, so stay tuned) sign their leases, they will have the opportunity to share their apartments for up to 180 days. Each unit is a blend between the homey comfort Airbnb rentals are loved for and the luxe amenities of a hotel. For example, expect keyless entry and an app that offers services like guest check-in, housekeeping, and luggage storage.
“Niido eliminates barriers by encouraging home sharing and creating solutions that work for everyone,” said Harvey Hernandez, Newgard’s CEO,
While the Florida complex is the first of its kind, Airbnb already has plans to expand this new venture. Soon, entire home sharing buildings will be available across the Southeastern US—so booking spring break accommodations is about to get a lot easier.
