The Beckmann in Tower Grove

The Beckmann was an Airbnb that took us by surprise. Our booking strategy usually zeros in on places with bunch of reviews and, broadly speaking, we’ve seen a positive correlation between the overall cost and the quality of the experience. So here was an Airbnb with only a handful of reviews that clocked in at the lowest nightly rate of the four Airbnbs we’d booked for our month-long stay in St. Louis. We were trying

Backyard Garden Cottage

Clocking in at just under 200 square feet, the Backyard Garden Cottage in Novato, California is a mind-boggling feat of engineering. With a full bathroom, kitchen, and queen-size bed, this Airbnb offers a completely functional home in the same square footage as a large bedroom. (Or tent. Seriously, there are family models with the same 16×12 dimensions.) This cottage serves as an exceptional case study in Airbnb design: fabulous hospitality, unparalleled attention to detail, brilliant

The Brinkley House at Sunny Mellow Villa

Tucked in the Cibola National Forest just east of Albuquerque, we discovered the Brinkley House at Sunny Mellow Villa. As we walked up to our February home, we found ourselves standing on a sprawling porch in possession of the most impressive view from any Airbnb we’ve yet to discover.

Our Hosts Fabulously creative and deliberately thoughtful, Caroline and Dave provided a five star

Fawn Road Carriage House

This was the third Airbnb we visited and to this day the Fawn Road Carriage House serves as the benchmark against which all other Airbnbs are compared. Hospitality, value, charm: this is the quintessential Airbnb experience. Situated in the tiny community of Halfmoon Bay just ten minutes outside of Sechelt, the Carriage House is the perfect springboard into the full Sunshine Coast experience. From the stunning pebble beaches to the unbeatable collection of restaurants, everything

Retrograss Farm Apartment

This place is an oasis located just 10 minutes outside of Chatham, New York. Perched in this second story suite, we spent a full month absorbing the daily wonders of the Retrograss Farm: strutting roosters, honking ducks, snuggling pigs, a majestic clydesdale, and a family of goats welcoming their week-old addition. With two bedrooms and windows in all four directors, this light-filled suite was a serene place to live and work. Stress is just hard to
