If you’ve ever tried searching for a specific property on Airbnb, you’ve probably noticed that it is very challenging. Sometimes you’re trying to find that perfect listing you forgot to save while browsing, or you even have an exact address but still can’t find the rental on Airbnb’s website. Rest assured, you’re not alone, and there are a couple of ways to find a specific property on Airbnb.
Can I Search for a Specific Property on Airbnb?
The short answer is no; you cannot search for a specific property on Airbnb. However, using the filter tools on Airbnb’s website can help you narrow your search to locate the property you’re trying to find. In addition, you can use third-party search engines to find some rentals on Airbnb.
How Do I Use Airbnb Filter Tools to Find a Specific Property?
Even if you have the exact address of an Airbnb rental, the search feature will not locate the property for you, so you will have to get creative to find it yourself. Start by entering the address in the search box. If you don’t have the address, you can enter the city or area of the property.
Next, you will enter your check-in and check-out dates. This gets tricky because if the rental is booked on the dates you’re searching, it will not show up in your results. You will also enter the number of people who are traveling. Make sure that the number of people you select can be accommodated by the specific property you’re trying to find.
Airbnb will populate a list of available rentals in your target area. If the list is short enough, you should be able to scroll through the results to find the property you have been searching for. If the results contain a lot of listings, you may want to use more filters to narrow your search.
If you are familiar with the property, you can adjust the following filters:
- Type of rental
- Number of bedrooms and bathrooms
- Price per night
After choosing the options that fit the specific property, the list of results will narrow, and it should be much easier to find the rental property.

Using a Third-Party Search Engine to Find a Specific Property on Airbnb
If you have the address of the property, some users opt to skip the Airbnb website and enter the address directly into a popular search engine like Google or Yahoo. The property you are searching for should populate as an Airbnb listing as a result. Some hosts have settings that prevent their listing from being searched, so this method may not work for all Airbnb rentals.
