Would You Pay $95/Night to Sleep in This Mid-City Backyard?

New, 2 comments

While the never-ending Airbnb debate rages on, people continue to spruce up any potentially livable nook or cranny of their homes and throw them in the short-term rental pool. Case in point: This person is in Mid-City is renting out a tent in her backyard through Airbnb for $95/night.

What kind of amenities do you get in this "glamping" (per the description in the post) opportunity? There is a hammock and pergola, a "small fire pit for telling stories and roasting marshmallows," a grill, access to an outhouse and outdoor shower (the latter does not have hot water), WiFi, "books," and use of two bikes.

Airbnbs have popped up in weirder places, like a party bus under the interstate or the site of a deadly fire. Camping Airbnbs are common, but hosts should see what else is out there before slapping the "glamping" label on their backyard tents. What do you think: is $95/night too much for this rustic sleepover party?
