It's finally summer, and what better way to ring in the end of the school year than a girls trip with your best gals! Get away, get some sun, have some fun, ahh. Sounds like bliss.
But as amazing as tanning and beachin' in Bali sounds, travelling is expensive(sigh). And as a student myself, I can def relate to the money-strapped struggle.
I totally get it, you guys. But, have no fear, because there are sooo many options out there for us broke gals. Here are some of the most afforable yet absolutely adorb airbnbs to check out. Plus, they're super cheap! You'll be sipping on those olive martinis on a sunbed in no time!
1. Atelier D'artiste Lumineux Proche de Montmartre
Space: 3 guests, 1 bedroom, 2 beds, 1 bath.
Location: Middle of the city. Close to Simplton train station and Charles De Gaulle airport.
Review: “Great place! Easy to get around in Paris from this location. It was warm outside but the main bedroom is below ground keeping it nice and cool. The plug adapters were a great benefit for out of town travelers. Wish we would have more time in the neighborhood as a short walk around on the last night showed us many cute restaurants and cafes. Only info we would share for people considering is that the stairs to get to the bedroom are slightly narrow, we managed. All in all we would definitely recommend the place!” - Sarah
2. Loft-Style Beach Flat
Space: 4 guests, 2 bedrooms, 4 beds, 2 baths.
Location: Situated by the beach and 10 minutes from city center(with transport).
Review: “A very stylish, comfortable and well situated flat in an artsy area of Barcelona. A great community feel. Walking distance to the beach and walking distance to metro with easy access to all areas. The host was very responsive and accommodating. We would highly recommend this place.”
3. Cozy Houseboat in Imperial Meadow
Prague, Czech Republic
Space: 8 guests, 2 bedrooms, 5 beds, 1 bath.
Location: By the water. Close distance to the city center and the train/metro station.
Review: “The houseboat is stylish, large and the facilities and amenities are excellent. Rob and Meg were there to show us around and always responded to every communication. We had a slight problem with the noise from the moorings in the back bedroom because of the windy conditions but we got around that by sleeping in the front room. It was snowing during our stay but the houseboat was always warm and comfortable. A really individual way to spend time in Prague.” - Michael
4. Mykonian Art Houses, Casa Mondo, Ano Mera District
Space: 4 guests, 1 bedroom, 2 beds, 1 bath.
Location: Near beach and restaurants. Quiet and in old village.
Review: “The house in Ano Mera has everything you need for a nice holiday! It has lovely details everywhere and a beautiful outside sitting and eating area with flowers all around you! Everything was very clean and comfortable! Lambros helped us with infos and tips where to find things on the island and was always around if we had questions about something. I would definitely recommend it! :)” - Emilia
5. Private Room Pavlina with Sea View
Space: 2 guests, 1 bedroom, 1 bed, 1 private bath.
Location: Walking distance from Old town. Overlooking the ocean.
Review: “Excellent views over Dubrovnik and a lovely place to stay for a few days. Marija is the go between with the owner Valentina, who was most helpful during our stay. The room is at the top of the hill with almost 500 steps to reach it which could be a challenge for some but an Uber back from the old town costs around Dhs14. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this room” - Laura

I can not think of any areas for improvement, and will definately stay again.” - Gayle
