Hello.This is Papazon of the Nomad family.(@nomadkazoku)
Currently, our family is working to obtain an MM2H visa with the aim of moving to Malaysia.
I can’t even go to Malaysia just to find a room, so I plan to live in several areas using the private lodging service “Airbnb” for the first few months after moving.
In this article, I would like to introduce Airbnb’s “long-term stay discount”, which is essential for saving accommodation costs, which accounts for a large percentage of long stay costs.
If you read this article, you may save more than 50% on accommodation and stay there for another month!

Save money on Malaysia’s long stay with Airbnb!
Airbnb is a service that connects people who want to rent an empty room with those who want to rent it, and is one of the services called “Minpaku” in Japan.
Rooms where you can stay in Airbnb
There are many types of rooms, such as condominiums, single houses, and shared rooms.
The situation of the room, such as some rooms that have arranged the interior exclusively for private lodging, such as when the owner rents out only for unused periods, there is a sense of treasure hunting just looking at the property and fun.
Accommodation costs cannot be set manually by the owner, but basically AI determines “supply and demand”, and the price is set in real time according to the reservation situation in the surrounding area.
It’s always a good price, so you don’t have to worry about getting caught up in bottakuri, but on the other hand, you may not have many chances to find bargains.
How to stay in Airbnb
After you decide which room to rent, you can chat with the owner (or his agent) to communicate directly.
Because it is a service used all over the world, automatic translation function is standard in the chat function, and English messages are translated at the touch of a button, and the reply is OK if you send a message in Japanese.
Chat interactions are mainly about handing over the keys to the room, and you can also ask questions about the facilities of the room.
The key delivery method of the room is almost the following two patterns.
- The owner (or his agent) will meet you directly.
- Ask me to tell you the location of the key box and your PIN
What is airbnb long-term stay discount?
It is a service that the accommodation cost is greatly discounted by staying consecutive nights.
Discounts are applied on a weekly basis or a monthly basis, but the target period and discount rate are optional for the owner, so it is necessary to check for each property.
How to find long stay and long-term discount properties in Malaysia
Go to Airbnb‘s site and select the “Long Stay” tab at the top left of the search form to help you find long-term discount properties.
Depending on the property, there are some properties that have a minimum stay, and some properties are discounted from the second week and the third week, so I think it is a good idea to set the accommodation period as a multiple of seven.
Malaysia Long Stay Accommodation Costs
I investigated the price of accommodation expenses for one month in Malaysia by popular area.

The Banser area is a stylish high-end residential area popular with Westerners.However, perhaps because it is inconvenient for sightseeing, the price range is set to cheap, and cospa is expensive and advantageous.
