Ladies and gents, it’s time you got acquainted with Airbnb 2.0: Airbnb Plus.
Airbnb Plus is like this dreamland where architecturally interesting and extravagant homes and totally modern decor collide. I mean, I basically use it as a source of home decor inspiration until I book my next trip overseas — or to Austin, San Francisco or Chicago.
But more specifically, Airbnb Plus is a whole new selection of strictly high-quality homes and high-rated hosts (meaning they’re rated a 4.8 or above). Every one of these homes was not only visited by an Airbnb rep for a 100-point quality inspection, but is also considered one-of-a-kind and thoughtfully designed homes. (Spoiler alert: They are.) They all come equipped with high-end amenities, like high-quality linens, comfy beds, legit bath products you’ve probably only ever splurged on a handful of times in your life and, yes, Wi-Fi.
Currently, you can find Airbnb Plus homes in some of the most exotic destinations, like Shanghai, Milan and Cape Town. Other cities include Los Angeles, London, Barcelona, Austin, San Francisco, Chicago and Rome.
If you’re in the same situation as I am and aren’t planning a trip anytime soon, that’s OK. These homes are still stunning and worth gawking at. So, ready for the tour? Let’s take a look at the 12 most luxurious homes we’ve found so far.
