200+ Black-Owned Airbnb Stays in the U.S.

Updated May 9, 2022


**This list/blog post is not sponsored by Airbnb.


As Black entrepreneurs and digital nomads, it’s important to us to support Black Airbnb hosts during our travels.

We prefer Airbnb over hotels because we like homey settings for our long-term stays. A kitchen to cook in, dedicated office space for work, and on-site washer and dryer are a few of our nomad musts.

But depending on the city, finding a Black-owned Airbnb can feel like searching for a needle in a haystack.

So we thought we’d make it easier on anyone else like us, who wants to help Black-owned Airbnbs succeed on the platform. It doesn’t hurt that their success can also help Black travelers feel safer and more comfortable when booking a stay on Airbnb.

Our simple criteria for the stays below include:

  • An Airbnb location in the U.S.
  • An Airbnb profile showing host(s) name & face
  • An average guest rating of 4.0 or above
  • A majority of positive guest reviews
  • A proactive host response to constructive feedback/negative reviews

This list is by no means perfect or exhaustive, and it currently only covers stays in the U.S. We’ll keep adding to it over time, but please remember—we’re just two folks with laptops. This simple list is brought to you by weeks of manually scouring through thousands of listings across the country.

Because we love you.

  1. Thank you for what you are doing! Just love it. All are welcome at our place and we love that people will easily be able find us here. Can’t wait to make the list for Miami!
    By the way, some of the link listings for Miami are not working…

    1. Thanks for your support, L! If a host or Airbnb removes a listing from the platform for any reason (sometimes temporarily), you may receive the error message you’re seeing when you click those Miami links you’ve shared. We’ll keep an eye on them to see if they come back active on the platform over the next couple of weeks.

  2. This is so great. Talking about “filling a need”. Can’t wait to use your resource on both ends—inspiring possibilities. Blessings. Bev/

  3. Hi. Any chance of compiling a list for sites in Europe. We’ve faced this issue to the point we have to book through a white family member to even be considered. Sigh.

      1. This is great. My biggest concern around using Airbnb is the fear of being racially profiled. With this list I can now consider the service.
