Ten Airbnbs to Add to Your Must-Visit List
As summer approaches, I am starting to sense a shift in energy; not just in myself, but in those around me, too.
Summer plans are beginning to take shape, and with the possibility of traveling in sight, I am starting to feel...hopeful. In the spirit of hopefulness and adventure, I'm here to share the ten Airbnbs that I can't wait to book for a future getaway. Some things are just too good to keep to yourself.
This eco-friendly retreat is a minimalist design lovers dream. The pueblo-style home has been featured in Dwell and Domino Magazine.
Villa Kuro is the ideal haven for those hoping to retreat from the pace and stress of city life. The design of this tranquil space was inspired by its desert surroundings as well as the Japanese philosophy of Wabi-Sabi. The property is nestled on 3.5 acres of land and boasts the promise of unforgettable starry nights.
This newly renovated 1880s era apartment is located in the colorful Barrio Viejo neighborhood in Tucson, and while it offers all of the modern amenities one could desire, it has also retained its historic southwest charm. Whenever I make my way to Tucson, this is where I will stay.
