10 Insta-Perfect Airbnb Vacation Rentals That Will Make You Travel

Published Apr 11, 2017

So many of us already take photos every day, but we take even more pictures when we’re on vacation. We fancy taking pictures of the country’s attractions, our family members, and our families in front of aforementioned attractions. However, we don’t enjoy taking photos of our accommodations! It might be because hotel rooms can be bare and basic, which we think might reduce the quality and aesthetic of our Instagram feeds. Have no fear, because there are some extremely Insta-worthy Airbnb vacation rentals, and will make your Instagram feed gorgeous. So read on to find out more about the coolest and most beautiful Airbnb vacation rentals!

8. Hop onboard the Cool Bus, Salinas, CA (from 45 USD)

Many of us grew up watching ‘The Magic School Bus’ and we all dreamed of going on an adventure with Miss Frizzle and her students. While that is an unattainable dream, you can instead hop on the Cool Bus for a pleasant stay. The most important part of an accommodation is definitely a nice bed, and the Cool Bus comes with an extremely plush bed that will allow you to catch up on some well-deserved sleep. Some parts of the original bus are still intact, so you can actually sit in the driver’s seat! You’re also welcome into the host’s home, where you can relax while watching TV and chatting to your hosts. Or, you can make use of the shared bathroom to wash up and feel squeaky clean.

9. Bright and homey private room, Belgium (from 71 USD)

Minimalist and homely, this private room’s focus is to make sure that it’s as comfortable as possible so you’ll have a relaxing sleep.

Appreciate the small details that are scattered around the bedroom, and notice how something small can help enhance the cosiness of the room. Right next to the large and plush bed is a hand-painted mural that watches over you as you sleep. Even better, you’ll have a private bathroom and dining area, so you can feel as though you’re in a private accommodation!
