Abstract

The sharing economy in general and peer-to-peer (P2P) accommodations have attracted the attention of academic researchers; research in this area has exponentially increased over the past few years. These researchers have come from a variety of disciplines including tourism and hospitality, business, psychology, law, and cultural studies. The P2P accommodation segment has several aspects which make it unique, even in the realm of the sharing economy. This critical review examined 107 peer-reviewed articles regarding P2P accommodations published between 2010 and 2017. Topics explored have been: consumer behavior, legal issues, conceptualizing P2P accommodations, in the sharing economy, revenue management, trust and mistrust, P2P accommodations and hotels, owner motivations, affordable housing concerns, and emerging fields. Gaps in the literature and future research topics are explored.
