Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky will be listing his home on the platform, opening it up to renters.

"This is my real home in San Francisco. I live near [Mission] Dolores Park," Chesky said at a press event on Tuesday in New York.

"I always thought to put the home on Airbnb," he said. He wanted to put himself "in the shoes" of an Airbnb host, he added.

Chesky's home is chock-full of company memorabilia, like the receipt from the air mattress that hosted the first Air Bed and Breakfast, the original company name, guests, and various logos in interesting places.

"We have some Obama O's and Captain McCains. This is how we funded the company in 2008, selling collectible breakfast cereal," he said Tuesday.

The CEO said in January he would be working remotely from Airbnbs and living in them full-time. That turned out to be about 16 or 17 Airbnbs from Atlanta to Miami, he said Tuesday. But, now he's settling down, with guests.
