The Most Unique Airbnb Rentals for 2022
1. Hideout Eco Bali House | Bali, Indonesia
We’re loving all the ‘off-the-grid’ vibes that come with this hideout in mountains of Gunung Agung. What’s better is it’s an eco stay hidden far from the city life! Unplug in this all-bamboo house resting sweetly among rice fields.
2. Swim Under a Private Waterfall at a Tranquil Forest Haven | Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Nature-lovers, meet us here! This unique airbnb home is located inside an ecological sanctuary with one of the most biodiverse ecosystems on the planet! It’s simple, peaceful + authentic! We’d love the opportunity to drink the natural spring water or take a dip in the secluded natural pool. Maybe even pick bananas + look for monkeys, too! Who knows?!
3. The Seashell House | Isla Mujeres, Mexico
Talk about Insta-worthy! This house is an absolute gem. Not only does this place put you steps from the ocean, but you’d feel like a celebrity staying here. It wouldn’t surprise us if mermaids were in the pool, too.
4. Unique Architecture Cave House | Oia, South Aegean, Greece
THE VIEWS! Santorini was recently voted the best place in the world for sunsets and this house gives you a great chance to enjoy them with a glass of wine in hand! The views are unparalleled – and if you’re into architecture, this is the place to be. The home was literally carved out of a cave!
5. BirdBox Cabin | Forde, Norway
This is tranquility in a box – literally. Relax, rejuvenate + unplug in this unique contemporary spot. It doesn’t get much closer to nature than this! True Norwegian countryside calmness with birds chirping, rivers flowing + trees blowing in the wind.
6. Modern Apartment | Akureyri, Iceland
Iceland has gotten a lot of press lately for its epic beauty. We’ve seen many elopements take place in Iceland and we totally see why! This unique airbnb takes full advantage of Iceland’s unparalleled aesthetic. This location offers a quiet atmosphere with modern styling + views over the bay.
7. Cubehouse | Rotterdam, Netherlands
If you’re checking out Amsterdam, be sure to reserve a night at the Cubehouse…if only for the awesome pictures for Instagram! Aside from nearby tulip fields + windmills, you can explore the architectural wonder that is the yellow Cubehouse. It’s a fun maze we’d love to get lost in!
8. Stone Cottage in the Grounds of a 16th- Castle | Saint-Victor-la-Coste, France
Bonjour, beauty! Bonjour, intriguing history! This cottage sits on the grounds of a castle dating back to 1543. It’s an Airbnb stay like no other. When you’re not swimming in the gorgeous stone pool, you can observe the intricate interior decor that’s remained the same + matching its historic charm! We’d be strolling through the gardens with a glass of wine (French, obviously).
9. Il Carrubo | Ostuni, Italy
Staying in a trullo (a traditional Apulian dry stone hut with a conical roof found in the Italian region of Apulia) is a totally bucket-list stay! Jason + I stayed in one when we visited Puglia two years ago, and it is one of our most favorite stays ever! This is one of the most saved homes on airbnb and we totally get why that is! Here are a few other airbnb trullos that looked really cute – Casa Vacanza Cappelluzzo Trullo and I Sette Coni – Trullo Edera.
10. Unique Apartment in a Tower | Selfoss, Iceland
Channel a modern Icelandic farmer in this unique Airbnb! The tower was built in 1957 and was used for drying hay to feed the cows after a long, rainy summer. If you like 360 degrees of gorgeous Iceland countryside, you might want to book ASAP!
11. Geodesic Dome near World Biosphere Reserve | Quebrada de Alvarado, Chile
A biosphere?! Yes, a biosphere. We’re talking about 20 feet in diameter, surrounded by lemon, avocado, apple, olive + almond trees! It’s absolute seclusion + paradise. And, if you need a taste of the city, you’re not too far from that either :)
12. Shiraz Riad | Marrakesh, Morocco
Okay, this spot feels like Moroccan royalty!
While visiting Marrakesh, stop in this eclectic, light + bright fusion of indoor-outdoor living. You can spend your days relaxing by the beautiful private in-ground pool, or in a daybed perched up on the panoramic rooftop. If you love Moroccan styling as much as we do…this one’s for you!
13. Sacred Geome Tree House | Montezuma, Costa Rica
There’s something so sacred about a tree house, isn’t there? We’ve all spent time in a tree house as kids, but this is a whole-nother-level! It’s a super magical + unique tree house built on an organic farm. Basically a jungle farm wildlife adventure all rolled up in 4 open- air structures!
14. Dreamy Tropical Tree House | Big Island of Hawaii
For more of an adult-y tree house, try this gorgeous build in the tropics of Hawaii. Red cinder leads you through the dense jungle to your secluded bamboo treehouse. Cozy 15 feet up above the jungle, or ascend to your retreat via the trapdoor (trapdoor?!). The Volcano National Park is 10 miles away, so there’s adventure, quite literally, all around you.
15. Secluded Intown Treehouse | Atlanta, Georgia
Get your phones out + snap a pic of this gem! Previously named Airbnb’s #1 Most Wished-For Listing Worldwide, this treehouse spot is nestled in the forest of Atlanta, GA! Just minutes from downtown, this secluded property is an urban retreat like no other!
16. Architectural wonder in the woods | Rhinebeck, New York
Cool moves in this eco-friendly retreat in an architectural, geometric masterpiece! This structural wonder is nestled on 30 preserved acres, just minutes from Rhinebeck + the Hudson Valley. The orb of wood in this house is unforgettable!
17. Modern Solar Home | Marfa, Texas
An uber hip hub in the arts hub of the US! This modern, unique Airbnb spot in Marfa is a true artists retreat with gorgeous views + a secluded, private drive. If you’re not obsessed with the location, you’re bound to be smitten with the baby wild boars who pop around to visit!
Speaking of stylish spots in Marfa, this is one of our favorite weddings from the artistic city.
The Most Unique Airbnbs in California
18. Off-Grid ItHouse | Pioneertown, California
Off the grid + industrial are how we’d describe this Cali spot! We love the super modern styling of the house, which brings together raw industrial aesthetics with the tactics of green design.
19. Beach View at the Bird’s Nest Bungalow | Stinson Beach, California (about an hour north of SF)
Are you in a Japanese soaking tub or on the San Fransisco beach? You honestly couldn’t tell the difference in this tranquil oceanfront spot. Indulge in treetop ocean views from the comfort of a queen bed, or watch the sun set from the privacy of a wooden deck. Or both!
20. Casa Tiny Near Casa Wabi | Puerto Escondido, Mexico
Inspired by Henry David Thoreau’s “Walden”, Casa Tiny is a place to escape from society, enjoy a simple life for a couple of days, a week or a month in this minimal, low-impact, isolated abode. The big table area is perfect for hanging out and use the hammock while you enjoy the perfect book. There is also a private pool and private beach! Ideal for people looking for a remote place to escape from the city.
