Contacting Hosts is as simple as sending them a quick message on Airbnb to let them know you’re interested in their place or experience.

Before a reservation
You can check out the listing and click or tap Contact Host to send a message. Pro tip: If you want to ask about specific reservation details, enter the dates and number of guests for your trip before hitting Contact Host (you won’t be able to send a message unless you have dates selected).
