The Top Airbnb Destinations People Are Adding to Their Wish Lists


Matthew Williams

We’re only three months into the year and it already feels like everyone could use a vacation. Luckily Airbnb has some ideas—from Orlando, Florida (the top place for families) to Paris (the number-one international destination). People are packing their bags and setting their automatic email replies. The brand recently released its top 10 most wish-listed rentals, and these aren’t your average guesthouses or hostels. An A-frame cabin in Utah’s Zion National Park and an “earth house” in Missouri have us thinking about how to incorporate a vacation experience into our everyday lives. Take a peek inside Airbnb’s most coveted stays and find the design ideas we’re stealing from each. 

The Eco-Cabin

To really showcase its views of Zion National Park, this cabin comes complete with a lift-up, garage-style door so you can sleep under the stars. For similar indoor-outdoor flow at home, install an accordian window in the kitchen. Cocktails, coming right up.

The Swing House

This Cincinnati rental’s draw is exactly as its name suggests: a swing hanging from the ceiling in the middle of the space. Playground equipment may not be practical for everyday use, so instead hang a plant or two. 

The Naturalist’s Retreat

A translucent roof and outdoor shower give you the feeling of camping in the great outdoors without sacrificing the luxury of hotel-quality bedding. Install a skylight for similar nocturnal views. 

The Cliff Dweller

Spend a night suspended in the trees…on the side of a cliff. The spiral staircase leading to the patio is a chic welcome after the hike up. Although the place is compact, the kitchen isn’t cluttered—open shelves kitted out with hooks for tools and mugs and a magnetic knife rack keep everything off the limited countertop surface.  

The Architectural Wonder

Angular architecture and endless plywood offer a futuristic spin on this classic upstate retreat. Our favorite part: the large circular window at the corner that’s the perfect vantage point for your morning cuppa.

The Creek-Side Hideaway

Nestled into a hill, this curved, camouflaged home comes equipped with built-in bunk beds and a shower inside (yes, inside) a hollowed-out tree. Even if your home is all right angles, an arch is totally doable in a bathroom to define the bathtub nook.

The Earth House

Looking more like an apocalypse-ready bunker than a Missouri home, this house gives off major supervillain’s lair energy. Rounded cutouts in the walls allow light to pass from space to space—even though it’s (partially) underground. Garden-apartment dwellers, take note.

The Survival Earthship

Another hillside hideaway, this time in the desert of Taos, New Mexico, this rental’s exterior is coated in a sage green with a mottled finish that reminds us of plaster. The rocklike structure proves that the verdant hue isn’t just for kitchens cabinets.

The Hobbit Cottage

Inspired by Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings series, the roof of this cottage appears to be covered in grass. Did you know yours can actually grow the stuff? Planting certain succulents can help with CO2 absorption

The Kettle House

Shaped like a hexagon, this Galveston, Texas, property has a distinctly mid-century feel that’s only underlined with its wood-paneled interior. The secret to making the material feel modern: choosing different tones for the floor and the walls.
