This commentary responds to the primary article by Alex Lazar in this volume entitled ‘Home-Sharing in South Australia: Protecting the Rights of Hosts, Guests and Neighbours’. It provides some insights into the Airbnb home-sharing model from a property, rather than a legal, perspective and argues that the law should evolve to sustain the changing paradigm and embrace the benefits that it can bring to South Australia.
