Warren Buffett recently endorsed Airbnb in his annual letter to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders, saying it’s an excellent option for people travelling to Omaha for his annual conference.
“Airbnb’s services may be especially helpful to shareholders who expect to spend only a single night in Omaha and are aware that last year a few hotels required guests to pay for a minimum of three nights,” he wrote. “Those people on a tight budget should check the Airbnb website.”
Now, thanks to Airbnb, one lucky Berkshire Hathaway shareholder will get the chance to spend three nights in Buffett’s childhood home during the Shareholders Meeting weekend in May.
The winner will be chosen based on the quality of their answers to four questions relating to travel, Airbnb, and Omaha. Shareholders can enter to win on the Airbnb listing.
The Buffett family moved into this home in Omaha's Country Club neighbourhood in 1936. Warren's first business was a paper route in this neighbourhood.
As you enter, you'll find yourself in a comfortable living room. The home is no longer owned by the Buffett family, so the furnishing has changed since they lived here.
This library was once a study for Buffett's father. The shelves are the originals, though the desk that once stood here is now in Buffett's office at Berkshire Hathaway.
