Not so very long ago, Airbnb was literally some guys renting space on their air mattresses in San Francisco to make rent. In the 13 years since, it’s turned into a multi-billion dollar company and made itself a verb, like Uber (or Xerox if you were born before 1975). All the while giving us access to homes, apartments, and all kinds of unusual lodgings we’d have never been able to rent otherwise.
But of the tens of thousands of rentals on Airbnb, some are exceptionally aspirational. And as we collectively dream of where we’ll go the next time we travel, Airbnb compiled a list of its most-wishlisted property each year since 2011. They’re all still available too, so if you’re dreaming of sleeping in a shell or solar-powered house in the California desert, read on for last decade’s coolest places to rent.
