Airbnb is always our go-to place to find quality one-of-a-kind getaways and experiences. From this grand palace in France to this geodesic dome in Chile, the platform is chock full of dreamy rentals at prices that don't break the bank.
As travel typically picks up during the summer (albeit this year may be different), the folks at Airbnb decided to take a look back at some of its popular rentals from last summer. Rather than using booking data; however, they analyzed Instagram data to see which rentals on the @airbnb account got the most love. The team compiled the account's most "liked" photos that were taken and posted between June and August of 2019 to create this top 10 list. All of these photos were sourced from users' accounts who stayed at the property.
Below are the results (from most "liked" to least) and they're sure to give you some major travel wanderlust. If you're looking to start planning your next vacation, but aren’t sure where to go, this list has some great rental options from all over the world that definitely make for good photos. Rentals are listed by their on-site titles.

Extraordinary View of the Atlantic + Outdoor Spa
This hygge home in Norway is the perfect place for a relaxing escape. Guests can walk right into the Atlantic Ocean from the home's front yard, as well as relax in the outdoor spa, available all year. The four-bedroom home accommodates up to eight guests and requires a minimum stay of three nights. The rental is currently going for $315 a night.
Marit’s waterfront house overlooks some of Northwest Norway’s richest fishing waters—and even comes with its own boat. But you’ll probably be too busy gazing at the sea and sky and rocky coastline to catch anything bigger than a snapshot. If you’re not the seafaring type, the nearby Atlantic Ocean Road snakes its way across tiny islands and down the coast. Make sure to bring a designated driver who is unfazed by wild beauty.

Casa Volta Cerca de Casa Wabi

Important reminder: Superhost Patricio’s Italian-inspired villa is only a couple minutes’ walk through lush greenery to a wild private beach. Forget this key fact and you’ll wind up spending your entire stay at least partially submerged in this pool. Admittedly, that’s not such a bad outcome. Photo: @caitwisha

After your timeout, rent a canoe to explore the lake or ask Wilson for directions to his favorite swimming hole. Photo: @cedarhighlands
