These Were Airbnb's 10 Most-Liked Listings on Instagram Last Year
You know all too well how easy it is to get sucked into the rabbit hole of amazing travel photos on Instagram. Well, we recommend you pencil in some time to get lost in your wanderlust, because Airbnb just shared its 2017 Year in Review. It’s the crème de la crème of travel Instagram posts—and with little surprise, the list is full of too-cute-for-words cabins, secluded tree houses, museum-like urban retreats, and beach and lake houses with views, views, views. Peep the ten most-liked listings of 2017 below:
Tye Haus A-Frame Cabin (Skykomish, Washington)
Located within driving distance of Seattle, this tiny A-frame cabin is decorated with a string of large-bulb lights and surrounded by tall trees near the Skykomish River. You’d probably never want to leave, but if you did, you’d be super close to the popular Stevens Pass ski area.
The Little Owl Cabin at Mt. Rainier (Packwood, Washington)
Something tells us A-frames were having a moment in 2017. The second most-liked listing on Airbnb’s roundup can be found in Gifford Pinchot National Forest, also in Washington state, and can fit up to six guests. The only question: Can the cedar soaking hot tub fit everyone inside?
Honeymoon House on Superior Pebble Beach (Lutsen, Minnesota)
This romantic Great Lakes (Great Superior, to be exact) home comes with kayaks, so you can take advantage of lots of water time. But what truly makes it impressive is the stunning floor-to-ceiling views from pretty much every room.
Best Place in the Heart of Downtown (Tulum, Mexico)
Tulum seemed to be *the* wanderlust beach destination of 2017, so it’s no surprise that this stunning casita ranked high on the likes list. Though it’s within walking distance of some of the town’s best restaurants and nightlife, the property has a tucked-away and tranquil vibe thanks to its lush backyard and L-shaped pool.
Secluded Intown Treehouse (Atlanta, Georgia)
This fairy-tale-like tree house with its three separate rooms—all connected by rope bridges—seems to have been everywhere this year, and for good reason. Billed as “Airbnb’s most wished-for listing worldwide,” the house is centered around the principles of mind, body and spirit. This place is what mindfulness would look like if you could live in it. What’s more—the tree house is so great it took both the No. 5 and No. 7 spots on this list.
Vondel House (Amsterdam, Netherlands)
Bright, airy and full of light are not what you’d normally expect from an urban retreat in an old European city, but that’s exactly what you’ll get at this BnB located in popular Vondelpark, which comes complete with a cute little garden with an outdoor dining area.
Charming & Cozy Apartment (Paris, France)
With chevron wood floors, a cozy little fireplace and views of one of Paris’s most popular tourist stops, Sacré-Coeur, it’s easy to see how this place sparkles bright even in the City of Lights.
Cliff House (Mollymook, New South Wales, Australia)
A quintessential beach house with a twist—this Australian stunner’s views make it seem like it's built directly over the water. If you’re lucky, you might even spot a whale or dolphin.
Prime 3-Story Penthouse (Cape Town, South Africa)
One look at the private plunge pool and the views from this Cape Town apartment, and it’s hard not to fall in love. Indoor/outdoor living spaces, mountain and city horizons, floor-to-ceiling windows and a contemporary gourmet kitchen are just the cherry on top.
