A hotel might just be a place to rest your head for some, but let’s be real, staring at a brick wall or a parking lot from your room doesn’t exactly evoke a sense of R&R. Recognizing this, Airbnb just released its most wish-listed stays in the Amazing Views category. Whether you’re a 5-star kind of traveler or a no-frills nomad, these top 10 properties have succeeded in captivating attention from within their walls and beyond.

  1. The Wonder Inn Mirrored Glass Cabin, Akershus, Norway 
  2. Zion EcoCabin, Hildale, Utah
  3. Luxury Suite Overlooking the Wadden Sea, Friesland, Netherlands
  4. The Wave Tin Infinity Villa, Lefkada, Greece
  5. Modern Ocean View Villa, Provincia de Puntarenas, Costa Rica
  6. Beachfront Lighthouse Marlera, Medulin, Croatia
  7. Casa San Gabriel, Umbria, Italy
  8. Ocean View Hideaway, Malibu, California
  9. Cozy Unique Farmhouse, Obwalden, Switzerland
  10. Rainforest Design House, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Our favorite view? The one from outside this reflective tiny home on a lake in Norway. Hosts Jeremy Hermans and Erle Lima Bjølgerud sourced the mirrored window panels from the Baltics to promise constant 360-degree vistas even when you’re sitting by the firepit or in the hot tub. From inside? The panels are completely transparent, seamlessly blending the interior with the landscape.

Though the unique design precludes the possibility of opening the “walls,” an automatic fan addresses any moisture buildup after showering and a discreet window over the door brings in fresh air. As daylight fades and the cabin’s lights illuminate the space, the interior becomes part of the panorama. And while there are no curtains, the owners say the property is secluded enough that privacy concerns are a nonissue. Everyone is too busy taking in the views.
