The 10 Most Wish-Listed Airbnb Homes Around the World

Most Wish-Listed Airbnb

Perusing Airbnb can be a risky prospect, if you’re prone to intense feelings of wanderlust. After all, the site boasts some of the most beautiful homes, and their “wish list” feature allows you to plan entire jaunts across the globe as you stay in different—and equally stunning—locales. If you’ve ever found yourself exploring the amenities of a beach-front property or figuring out airfare for a desert vacation, know that you’re far from alone. For Airbnb’s 10th anniversary, they compiled a list called “10 of Our Most Wish Listed Homes.”

When Airbnb says that a home is beloved by users, they really mean it. Of the 10 properties they identified, 860,000 guests have “given love” to the homes over the past decade by adding it to their wish lists. (Some of them have been wish-listed over 150,000 times!) The homes run the gamut of locations, from a tropical tree house to a restored palace to a former wine seller carved into a cliff. While each has its charms, there’s one thing in common—they are more than just places to stay. They are travel destinations.

See the most sought-after locales below. For even more breathtaking homes, check out Airbnb’s most popular wish lists.


To celebrate their 10th anniversary, Airbnb has released the most wish-listed Airbnb homes around the world.
