Havana, Cuba — where you can rent a swanky seaside home for $ 526 a night — has experienced a 940 percent increase in bookings.In the U.S., travelers are interested in Destin, Florida, where Airbnb reservations climbed by 232 percent from last year. There, a two-bedroom condo with private beach access will run for $ 229 a night.Though these short-term rentals can be lucrative, homeowners and renters should do their homework before listing their properties.Failure to do so can put you on the wrong side of local zoning regulations, your la
