The Top 10 Most Wished for Airbnb Properties in the World

Written by Charlie

Want some travel inspiration? Here are the top 10 Airbnb properties that people have been wish listing the most – plenty of beautiful homes and destinations!

While travel has been pretty much a mere shadow of what it was a few months ago, that has not stopped people from searching for places they want to visit once they are able to travel again. Airbnb took that data of those places that were wish listed and compiled a list of the top 10 Airbnb properties that people want to check out (based on internal Airbnb data from March 11 – May 4).

These 10 Airbnb Properties Are the Most Wish Listed

I can definitely get the appeal of the places that made this top 10 list. Not only are they beautiful with great views and areas but they also offer some seclusion. This could be very desired in a post-COVID-19 travel world, having a place that leaves you somewhat to yourself.

The prices listed below are what shows on the main page. Prices may differ depending on season, length of stay, how many people, etc.

180 Degree View Villa with Private Pool – Singaraja, Bali, Indonesia

This location offers some incredible views and is available for up to 8 people. It offers 2 bedrooms, 4 beds, and 3 baths. The price for this gem is just $99 per night! I mean, wow – great views, a cool pool and a decent price!

Exceptional property private beach – rare – Governador Celso Ramos, Santa Catarina, Brazil

Here is another beautiful property with its own private beach. This one is located in Brazil and is available for just $52 (that is a per adult price and there are minimums for some dates) per night.

It can house 8 people in 4 bedrooms with 5 beds and 2.5 bathrooms. The pictures show an awesome location that can give you whatever seclusion you desire!

Hector Cave House – Santorini, Greece

You had to know that any top 10 list would have to include some awesome property on an island in Greece, right? Well, there are actually two but this is the first one up that we will look at.

Given this is Santorini and you are getting the gorgeous house and the view that people think and dream about, this one does cost more than the first two. This one is $658 per night and will house 5 guests with 1 bedroom, 2 beds, and 2 baths. It is small at just 60 square meters (a little over 600 square feet) but you likely aren’t going to spend a whole lot of time inside the house here anyway!

HIDEOUT BALI – Eco Bamboo Home – Bali, Indonesia

Back to Asia with this one. It will give a couple some beautiful exclusion – a chance to be away from everything. It costs $159 per night and is for 2 people with 1 bedroom that has 1 bed and there is 1.5 bathrooms as well.

If you like something a little different and removed from the city life, this could give you that!

Underground Hygge – Orondo, Washington

Hey, we have a property in the US! This one is located in Washington state near the Columbia River Gorge. It is an earth house made for 2 guests with 1 bedroom, 1 bed, and 1 bathroom. The cost? This one will cost you $400 per night.

The property has 6 acres so get ready to explore the beautiful countryside!

BALIAN TREEHOUSE w beautiful pool – Bali, Indonesia

Back to Indonesia! There are really so many places in this country that have some beautiful locations and can be had for reasonable prices, especially when you compare them to what it would cost you in many other places of the world.

This treehouse is made for 2 people with 1 bedroom and it has 1 bed and 1.5 bathrooms. It is just $92 per night and looks splendid! Plus, you will go home knowing you had stayed in an actual treehouse.

It has a pool and is just a short walk from the beach.

Private Pool House with Amazing Views! – Los Angeles, California

It appears that this house often makes its way onto the most-wished list for California. It is for 3 people with 1 bedroom, 2 beds, and 1.5 bathrooms.

For LA, the words “private” and “pool” may lead you to think it will be quite expensive. Well, how about $175 per night? Not bad at all when you consider what a hotel will cost you out there!

Amazing view – Moderne apartment – Akureyri, Iceland

Iceland is hot on people’s lists for visiting since they are opening June 15 and will even offer free COVID-19 tests for arriving tourists for the rest of the month! If this is something that sounds good to you, and if you can find this place available, this could be a great place to stay!

It is located in northern Iceland about 7 minutes from the airport in Akureyri. If you fly, it is just 45 minutes from Reykjavik but almost 6 hours by car.

This home is good for up to 4 guests with 2 bedrooms, 3 beds, and 1 bath. The price is $155 per night. This is actually a nice price for something like Iceland!

Unique Architecture Cave House – Oia, Greece

Yep, we are back in Greece with another one in the top 10! And, of course, it includes a beautiful view, water, and the typically intriguing architecture that you would expect from such a place in the Greek islands.

This one will house up to 4 guests with 2 bedrooms, 2 beds, and 1 bathroom. The cost will be $570 per night.


If you are going to Marrakech, my first piece of advice to anyone is always to get a Riad to stay at. Sure, there are plenty of hotel options but when in Marrakech, you really should do the Riad route!

Here is one that you can get all to yourself for up to 7 guests in 3 bedrooms with 7 beds and 3 baths. This could be a perfect place for a family vacation or a place with friends with so many bed setups. The cost is $88 per night for the base level.
