Did you check the new web-based application called AirBnB?
Miel on his blog shared some information regarding this application.

- You have an extra room in your home/condo and you need some extra money to pay your rent –> you can share your room and post information on AirBnB.
- Are you looking for a place to stay for a day/week/month but you don’t want to stay at the hotel –> it looks like AirBnB are building their database but still there are a lot of options
