Guest Houses

The official definition of a guest house is…

  • A noun – a private house offering accommodations to paying guests. synonyms: inn, bed and breakfast, B&B, hotel, motel, boarding house.
  • Also a small, separate house on the grounds of a larger one, used for accommodating guests.

Guest House IconAccording to Wikipedia: “A guest house (also guesthouse) is a kind of lodging. In some parts of the world a guest house is similar to a hostel, bed and breakfast, or inn. In other parts of the world (such as for example the Caribbean), guest houses are a type of inexpensive hotel-like lodging.”

This doesn’t work for our purposes. We consider an “inn” to be a hotel and a bed and breakfast to be just that. Hotels and motels are what they are, and that is far from a guest house by our definition. And a boarding house is a whole different type of accommodation, and not one generally associated with tourism. For our purposes, a guest house is a private property offering rooms or outbuildings as short term stay rentals.

There are guest houses all over the world but they are not as popular with tourists as other types of short stay accommodations are. Those Vagabond Travel comes across will be listed here, first by country and then by city and property name.

Vagabond

Vagabond Travel came into being April 16, 2014 when I departed Canada heading for Mexico City. I have no destination in mind, nor an itinerary to follow. This is a sort of website, journal and travel blog all rolled into one. That's about it.
