First on this list we have a sweet Airbnb suite with Victorian-style furniture. Inspired by the region’s full blooms, the suite is filled to the brim with delicate, flowery prints, giving life and elegance to the home. This vacation rental has got all the functionality and comfort of a luxury hotel suite but even more space at a great price. However, the bright pink bed sheets make it look as if it has a grandma’s warm and homely touch, so you don’t feel too far from home. The lime green of the bathroom, great lighting, and claw-foot tub make this a great place for a casual soak after a long day out and about.

3. Full of lights and leaves (from 69 USD)

This Airbnb apartment has skylights as abundant as in a greenhouse. Enjoy the refreshing, mood-lifting benefits of sunlight as you lounge around in your living room. The abundance of paintings, decor, and books found in this house reflect its neighbourhood of Fenwood, one of the older neighbourhoods in Victoria. The community has a mix of young and old residents and has a great assortment of galleries, theatres, bakeries, and pubs in the area. But if you do need to attend events downtown, this area is only a 20-minute walk away. A bedroom full of natural light will ensure that your body clock wakes up with the sun. From the balcony, lots of greenery and clear skies await you. Do some morning stretches here and you’re sure to feel all pumped up for the day. This spacious bathroom is great for couples who like to brush their teeth together or just someone who likes a lot of open private space for getting ready in the morning or at night.

5. Oceanside house at Macaulay Point (from USD 94)

This custom-built house near Macaulay Point oceanfront park is a compact and clean accommodation, built using locally sourced items. Much of the craftsman-built house is constructed from local fir, a type of evergreen tree. The loft bed’s window looks out to the ocean. Open up the windows to let the sea breeze roll in, and listen to the ships dock and ferries horns. The Murphy bed downstairs can be lifted up with one hand for extra floor space. A functional bathroom space with custom tiles to give it that edge of luxury makes for a great place to wash after a long day. You’ll be glad to know that everyone will be able to enjoy these nature-inspired inner structures and wallpapers; the Airbnb home is pet-friendly, child-friendly, and wheelchair accessible.

6. Bright place with a magical sunroom (from 106 USD)

This beauty of a holiday house lets you live in nature while in the comfort of the indoors with its wide, sprawling windows that let in the surrounding scenery. The sunroom, a highlight of this house, is exquisite with its wooden frames, and homely with its simple, soft couches. The master bedroom also lets in a lot of natural light, giving it a very crisp and refreshing feel. After a day in the city centre, take a shower in this stylish, nicely tiled bathroom. The real magic starts when nighttime falls; the stained-glass lamps cast an ethereal red glow on the sunroom as the sun goes down. This spacious, bright house creates a romantic, otherworldly atmosphere that is great for couples travelling together.

8. Plush, luxurious, Georgian-style suite (from USD 130)

From the outside, this vacation rental might not have a particularly striking structure but it is actually quite a gem. When you step inside the living space, you quickly realise how much thought, care, and luxury has been put into this Airbnb holiday property. The richness of red walls and prints complement wooden furniture very nicely. The delicate white flowers are contrasted against the opulent tones of rich brown and strawberry red. This pistachio green bedroom with luxury bedding and furniture is so elegant and it could even beat some presidential suites. The plants are a refreshing addition to the room, bringing the garden of the city into your room. The marbled tiles, clean designs, and clear glass make for the perfect bathroom experience. A shower or soak in here is sure to make you feel extra pampered. On days when you don’t feel like going out into the city, and just want to enjoy the fun of your backyard, there are loads of options. The house comes with a huge trampoline, a zipline, and a ping-pong table.

10. A magical mansion hidden by leaves

This vacation rental is an unconventional listing shrouded in red leaves, hiding many fun and exciting amenities. It’s a unique, sprawling place situated in the prestigious Rockland area, and it’s really close to the Lieutenant Governor’s house (Government House) and Craigdarroch Castle. From the sheer size of the living room, you can see how this place is a great option for large groups looking for a beautiful vacation together. The compound has a total of 5 bedrooms, 7 beds, and 3.5 bathrooms. These are two of the en suite bathrooms. The second bathroom pictured features a Japanese bath, something you don’t see very regularly in this part of the world. It would be a pity to have such a large compound, a huge pool and deck, and lovely nature all around and not be able to share it. Fortunately, this place is suitable for events! Can you imagine an anniversary party or a birthday bash in this setting? That’s one party you wouldn’t want to miss.

11. Little carriage house

This second listing is a cute and compact Airbnb carriage home. There is just something so endearing about the well-thought-out and minimalist design. This simplicity makes it right at home with the simple beauty of nature. From this listing, Banfield Park is immediately accessible, which leads you to the scenic multi-use Galloping Goose Trail. A ladder leads up to a comfy loft bed. Waking up to the rain in this little corner would be incredibly soothing and romantic. But take care and take your time; remember to go up and down facing the ladder! A bathroom occupies a little corner of the house, with a stand-up shower for a quick wash. There’s even a cute lounging area for you to read the papers or enjoy a cocktail. A picture of the calm sea evokes a sense of serenity. The wooden touches with the furniture also match the house’s natural surroundings. If you need to hunker down for some work or want to play a computer game, there’s even a little work space available next to a kitchenette, which is ideal for simple meals. With the lush park just outside your vacation rental, an eye break is never far away.

Cutest Little Carriage House ever!
