The Most-Bookmarked Homes on Airbnb Right Now

As travel begins opening back up, people are starting to dream a bit bigger and think beyond their own backyard. While Americans are booking closer to home for early summer holidays like Memorial Day Weekend, with stays between 50 and 300 miles from home making up nearly 70 percent of searches for the long weekend according to Airbnb data, we’re starting to eye rentals and villas a little farther afield, too.  

In the past week, Airbnb has seen wishlists on its site fill up with a few recurring properties, like this tropical cottage in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, and a beachfront villa in Greece—many of which are being bookmarked for future trips when international travel is back in full swing. Also among Airbnb’s most saved rentals are a treehouse in Vermont and both a geodesic dome and an A-frame in North Carolina. We’ve pulled some of our favorite properties from Airbnb’s recent release of its most wishlisted homes, which you can find and save for later, or even book now, below. 

Sounio, Greece

$232.00, Airbnb (Starting Price)

Greece reopens to travelers in mid-May, requiring proof of vaccine or a negative COVID-19 test, and it seems people are already dreaming of their next Greek adventure, wishlisting this coastal three-bedroom villa an hour south of Athens. While it’s a 10-minute walk to the beach, you’ll also have access to a private pool, a number of patios with views of the Myrtoan Sea, sunny bedrooms, and a well-equipped kitchen for meals in. If you want to explore beyond the beach, the ruins of a temple of Poseidon built in the 400s B.C. is a short drive away. 

Hendersonville, North Carolina

$258.00, Airbnb (Starting Price)

For couples who want to glamp, this domed property, about a half hour south of Asheville, is a romantic spot to hole up. It’s cozy, no doubt, but with a bedroom, kitchenette, and bathroom (with a full shower), plus heating and A/C, it has everything you need for a night or two away, and the view looking out to the surrounding woods is pretty spectacular. Also outside: a hot tub, grill, and fire pit.

Rockbridge, Ohio

$589.00, Airbnb (Starting Price)

We love a good A-frame, especially when it comes with direct access to hiking trails. From the Rockbridge, Ohio, home (about 40 minutes south of Columbus), visitors can discover cliffs, caves, and seasonal waterfalls. Inside the home, there’s plenty of space to spread out, with three bedrooms, each with a king or queen bed, and a loft area with a king and two singles. To note, this upstairs area is accessible by a steep staircase; while it has railings, the hosts don’t recommend young children head up there. Other notable features: a wood-burning fireplace, outdoor hot tub, row of swinging hammocks, and backyard fire pit.

Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

$110.00, Airbnb (Starting Price)

Speaking of views, this minimalist one-bedroom apartment in Santo Domingo boasts some pretty spectacular ones of the Caribbean Sea. Take in the view from the queen bed or the standalone bathtub (situated in the bedroom, in front of floor-to-ceiling windows, it’s worth noting), or from the downstairs area, where the home’s fully-equipped kitchen and living area are located, as well as a more private half bathroom.

Joshua Tree, California

$267.00, Airbnb (Starting Price)

The wildcard of the bunch, this UFO is actually an original Futuro House, a limited series of circular prefab homes designed by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen and built in the ’60s and ’70s. You’ll enter the bedroom and living space through an electric door that folds down, and have access to lounging areas, board games, and a dining table inside. Outside, thanks to the dry desert environs, you’ll find an outdoor kitchen with the basics, outdoor bathroom and shower, and fire pit. Note, this home is fully off-the-grid and solar-powered, so while you’ll be able to charge your small devices, don’t plan to work remotely from this spot. Bonus: You’re less than 30 minutes from Joshua Tree National Park, too.
