This Airbnb Has Been Wish-Listed Over 275,000 Times — Here's Why

Originally Published: 

A human can dream — especially when it comes to planning your ultimate vacation. It may or may not even be in the cards for you to book a getaway right now, but that doesn't mean you can't window shop, right? And one of the most popular travel app's around makes that oh-so-easy to do (for better or worse!). You know which epic spaces you've clicked "save" on, but surely there are a ton of gems you haven't even seen yet. Which begs the question, "What are the most wish-listed Airbnb rentals?" Well, the company has taken the liberty of rounding up the best from the last 10 years, in case you needed some inspo for your upcoming anti-spring break (or just appreciate a little eye candy).

From treehouses to off-the-grid desert getaways — and even a few admittedly weird options — Airbnb offers some seriously unforgettable accommodations you might have otherwise never known about (honestly, how did anyone plan a trip before it existed?). And in taking a look at the most wish-listed for every year starting back in 2011, it's clear that there are so many unique ways to vacation and that the trends are always changing. A sustainable, tropical getaway in the jungle? Yup, that's there. A private villa for you and all your friends to party together in Tuscany? That's available, too.

If that alone isn't reason enough to go add to your wish list now, the rest of the top 10 certainly will. Ahead, find them all, as well as a few details that makes them so special.
