Homesharing website Tripping.com has raised $35 million in new funding, trying to capitalize on the popularity of travelers choosing to stay in private homes rather than hotels.

Princeville Global led the financing round for the San Francisco-based company, which raised $16 million last year. The company declined to provide a valuation. Past investors include former Expedia Inc. Chief Executive Officer Erik Blachford and Qunar.com Inc. co-founder Fritz Demopoulos.
