With spring break around the corner and 110 days until the start of summer (not that we’re counting), it is officially vacation-planning season. And if you are looking to center your 2023 travel around chic stays, you’re in luck: Airbnb recently released data on the top five most wish-listed stays in its new Design category from last year, and we’re tempted to book them all. Whether you’re in the midst of organizing a trip or dreaming up your next home renovation, these popular (and stylish) destinations—from a Colorado cabin built into a cliff to a trippy retreat in Texas—will get the inspo flowing.
The One Straight From a Fairy Tale
You’ve likely seen this merengue-looking exterior on your Instagram feed, and we’re happy to tell you the inside of the Bloomhouse is just as much of a visual delight. There’s something soothing about the twists and turns throughout the space, and we’re especially partial to the whimsical take on floating shelves in the kitchen. Leave it to Austin to keep things wonderfully weird.
The Indoor-Outdoor Micro-House
Yes, we’re dreaming of sunbathing and swimming pools, but the scene at this Canadian chalet in Lac-Beauport could convince anyone to embrace the snow a little longer. The spacious outdoor living area has plenty of room for throwing an alfresco dinner party and sitting by the fire underneath a pile of blankets.
The Windows to the World
This industrial rental in Rio de Janeiro was designed with its lush environment in mind. When you’re surrounded by arched, floor-to-ceiling walls made up of steel and glass, you can’t help but feel immersed in the surrounding rainforest.
The Place Between a Rock and a Green Space
This cavernous cabin in Cortez, Colorado, sees your statement wallpaper and raises you a slice of a red rock cliff. Yes, it’s real: The property is built directly into the the flank of Sleeping Ute Mountain. Around the corner from the house? Another rock alcove with a small lawn.
