Mt. Magnificent might be the most appropriate location for this large-yet-authentic Alaskan home.

On the contrary, inside is downright high end, with sleek and striking surfaces and décor, and the addition of amenities like soaking tubs.
Frank Loyd Wright was a renowned architect, known for his imaginative and masterful creations. His homes feature everything from indoor water focal points to unusual angles. Speaking of angles, this home doesn’t really have any, as it is one of Wright’s few circular-shaped dwellings, which he thought would complement the surrounding mountains in Phoenix, Arizona. The home is large, featuring attractive perks such as a sun-drenched pool. It’s not heaven, but one could mistake it to be.
An overall bright color theme, with light gray flooring and other cool tones, makes this home immediately tranquil. We are taking “yoga-like” tranquil. While the kitchen is smaller, the ocean blue countertops match the grand dining table surface. With plenty of space to stretch out, the home is minimally, but strikingly furnished.
To say the least, it was very difficult to pick just one mansion in the state of California, where over-the-top, glamorous abodes are more of a regular thing than in most states. But the striking nature of this dusty dark masterpiece caught our eye. Located within the Yucca Valley Desert, the home projects itself over the rocky landscape with an angular patio with built-in fire pit facing outward. An equally impressive pool is there for guests to enjoy, and sightsee at the same time.

Florida has some super ritzy locations, from 30A to Naples, but this Airbnb resides in Palmetto Bay. It stands out not only because of its intricate high end details, but because of the pool area, which features a naturalistic hot tub that spills over in waterfall fashion into the pool. A lovely cabana sits beside the water hole, which could be mistaken for something found in Hawaii.
Imagine what it would have been like to be one of the rich back in 1850 when this home was built. Much of the original character, such as exposed brick walls and the stunning staircase, have been preserved. However, many contemporary elements have been incorporated to bring it to today’s luxurious standards. While this may look like a home found in Savannah, it is actually located in the lively town of Columbus, which is rich in history, outdoor activities and beautiful scenery.
We love that this spacious abode still features countless authentic Hawaiian aesthetics, such as rich wooden floors and ceilings, along with loads of native foliage.

But then there is this suave, ambient swanky side that makes guests feel completely pampered.

Maxing out at 5,000 square feet, the large home has some seriously interesting features from the outside in. While initially, you might think that it’s just another modern dwelling with mid-century accents, you’ll start to notice things get a little bit more quirky. Some windows are tilted to the side in Tim Burton fashion, the exterior features some out-of-the-box shapes, along with other funky things we won’t spoil for you. On the bottom level of the home is a recreational escape, with a pool table and wet bar. Cheers!
What doesn’t this home have? Being near the most famous place in the entire state, you wouldn’t think it would need much at all to be an alluring rental. However, outside is overflowing with things to keep guests relaxed yet busy after a night out, like a giant chess board, basketball court, incredible pool with water slide, and a sun-draped canopy. Inside takes on an eccentric contemporary look with lots of clean angles and fun accents. Don’t forget to play some rounds of mini golf.

This peaceful home is elevated amongst the trees and overlooks its own pool, made for peaceful and quiet afternoons. But in case you were wondering, this location is about two hours and 15 minutes from New York City. So treat yourself to dinner and a show.
We didn’t choose anything in Wilmington or other well-known coastal North Carolina destinations. Instead, we chose this striking structure in Charlotte, away from the coast line.

We think guests will enjoy the contrast between log and stone, and upscale chandeliers.
Come to the prairies of North Dakota to watch the bison roam, from very far away safe distance of course, while staying in a spaciously rustic abode that can sleep up to 16 people.

Charleston is a magical South Carolina city with tons of history and breathtaking coast line. This beach home incorporates an overall common aesthetic found in this charming corner of the United States.

Who knew there were so many castles/mansions in the United States? We love that this one feels quite medieval, as guests cross over a metal and wooden bridge to the front door.

In true Tennessee fashion, we bring you this mansion that doubles as a jaw-dropping cabin. Perched up on one of the rolling mountain hills, the escape is hugged by an abundance of trees and foliage.

Guests will feel like they are at a resort rather than a Utah home.

In between Lake Superior and Lake Michigan, the incredible structure is also surrounded by smaller lakes, so it is a water recreation haven.

We wouldn’t expect anything less rustic for a Wyoming “mansion.” While the exterior presents like a cabin, there are many luxurious attributes to be found within.

Stay warm in the hot tub or the sauna.
