When you’re entrepreneurs in the creative field, travel is more than just a vacation. You travel for inspiration, for a chance to get a peek into different cultures. For designer Masaba Gupta, pastry chef Pooja Dhingra and chef Sarah Todd, work always keeps them on the move and a comfortable yet functional stay is priority. No surprise then that they choose to pick an Airbnb property that allows them to work and immerse themselves in the local lifestyle.

Here, the trio shares their favourite Airbnb properties for when they’re travelling on business:

Masaba Gupta: “When I travel for work, I usually opt for Airbnb because of location and convenience. Between meetings and fittings, my work trips are quite hectic, so I like staying close to where I work. I usually travel solo and enjoy staying at an Airbnb apartment because I get enough space to relax and to get my work done with ease. The 24-hour check in feature makes is super helpful even with late night flights.”

Her preferred London property: Stylish Luxe Apartment Steps from Broadway Market

Prepare to be enchanted with this cozy two bedroom apartment located in a traditional 1890s London townhouse. It’s steps away from the Broadway Market and comes with a study and uninterrupted Wi-FI, so work never stops.

Pooja Dhingra: “My love for macarons started in Paris, and I’ve experienced so many new cities since. While my work requires more creativity than paperwork, I do look for places that have dedicated workspaces and can ensure productivity. Airbnb’s work-ready homes give me what I need in terms of an office on the go, plus the added benefit of a spectacular kitchen space, which I use for shoots, and of course, trying out new recipes I stumble upon while my travels.”

Her preferred Delhi property: Lake View Luxury Apartment @ Hauz Khas Village

Bang in the middle of Hauz Khas Village, the property is a perfect blend of old-world charm and new-age glamour. Featuring fresh art and design-centric accents, the balcony overlooks a historical monument. This two-bedroom duplex (with a spacious terrace) is high on sunshine and is pretty much what you need for inspiration (and productivity) to be your best friend.

Sarah Todd: “Being a writer and chef, my weeks are as packed as one would imagine. I often find myself in a new city several times a month and when in a new city, I cherish having a space to relax, work and recoup all in one. With my schedule, it’s also very convenient to have the flexibility of late check-ins when travelling for work. Another plus for me is the kitchen space! With all the travelling, I like to keep a few things constant like making my own meals which is seamless with Airbnb.”

Her favourite Sydney property: Savour Minimal, Designer Style in a Heritage-listed Terrace:

With its custom designed lighting and pleasing accents, this spacious apartment is ideal for a ‘bleisure’ trip. Located on a bright residential street in a trendy Sydney neighbourhood, it’s home office will ensure you meet your deadlines.
