Apptha, the hub for eCommerce extensions released Apptha Airhotels a little while ago in the Magento 2 version. Apptha’s Airhotels is an Airbnb clone script. This vacation rental script has been the springboard for 1,000+ vacation rental websites across the globe.
This article is a thorough review of the readymade Airbnb clone script as available to customers.
Apptha Airhotels is envisioned as an Airbnb clone script that makes things easier for all its users: site admins, hosts and guests.
Here are its Highlight Features:

City-based searching is what made Airbnb popular. Apptha Airhotels enables the same with a city-based property search right on the landing page. Also, the city which has seen most number of property bookings will be listed here. The admin can customize the image of each city with a single click.
User Reviews & Ratings
Following the concept that social proof leads to more conversions, Apptha Airhotels is providing star-based rating and text-based review system. Unlike usual vacation rental star rating systems, Apptha Airhotels goes a step ahead and classifies the rating based on Price, Quality and Value.
Background Verification through Gamification
Establishing safety and trust is the biggest challenge in vacation rental business. To help guests remove their doubts of hosts Apptha Airhotels has introduced a trust badge based gamification system that indicates document verification of hosts.
Guests can search for properties based on several criteria like property type, price slider, amenities provided and so on.

Each property gets a designed page where all its details including ownership, type, rooms, guests allowed, pet policy, amenities provided, highlight features, etc. are mentioned in detail.

Apptha Airhotels facilitates booking management with Google Calendar Integration. Hosts and guests can see real-time booking status of each property enabling proper planning.
