A Dreamy, Off-the-Grid Tropical Tree House in Hawaii
Total privacy can be key for a romantic escape. If you’re after complete seclusion and want zero distractions, this remote bamboo tree house would be right up your alley. It’s off-the-grid, so there’s no WiFi or electricity, but solar power takes care of your essential needs.
This treehouse is beautifully decorated and is the perfect epitome of pure luxury amidst the rustic jungle. PS: Volcano National Park is only 10 miles away.
A Classic Cave House in Santorini
Is there anywhere more romantic than Greece? It’s ideal for a honeymoon, for sure. This cave house Airbnb is beyond gorgeous. The views are everything you want them to be in Santorini, and the property is just perfect. While this Airbnb can hold up to 5 guests, we think it’s ideal for two. Be sure to check out all the photos in the listing, there are so many cool details.
Romantic Cabana with View – Colombia
You won’t believe the affordable rate for this stunning property. Nature lovers will fall head over heels for this bamboo cabana set near a stream. This rental is located in a coffee-growing region of the Andean mountains, so you can do lots of coffee-related activities and tours if you’d like. Or, simply stay in bed all day at your Airbnb; it would be hard not to! Your stay includes a daily home-cooked breakfast, which reviewers consistently rave about.
City Penthouse in Cape Town
This centrally-located penthouse in Cape Town, South Africa, has absolutely phenomenal views. With floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the apartment, you’ll have the famous Table Mountain constantly in your sights. To up the romance factor even more in this Airbnb, hop into the jacuzzi located outside on the patio. With a couple of glasses of delicious South African wine, you’ll be ready for an evening of romance.
Cozy Artist’s Home in London
Accommodation in London can end up being fairly expensive, but that means Airbnb can be a good choice for your visit. We’ve found a lovely room in an artist’s home in the Camden area of London. While you won’t get an entire property to yourselves here, you’ll have your own private room filled with beautiful furnishings from around the world. The hip Camden location, as well as the style, offers you and your partner an experience that is truly London.
In-Town Treehouse, Atlanta
You might be surprised that this secluded treehouse in the woods is actually situated in the heart of in-town Atlanta. This is an incredibly romantic property, and we’re not the only ones who think so. This is actually rated as Airbnb’s most wishlisted property in the world, and has been featured in magazines and television. If you can get a reservation, don’t hesitate!
This magical treehouse lets you sleep among the trees, with lots of windows and open-air elements that make this truly possible. And when you’re ready to explore, the best of Atlanta is right nearby.
Magical B&B by the Sea in Havana
Heading to Cuba? There is something perfectly captivating about this seaside B&B, decked out all in white. Staying here will definitely make you feel like royalty (and at an excellent price). Your private room is simple and sophisticated and the views of the ocean will make you feel totally serene.
The location is great too, set on the famous seafront El Malecón-Havana, and just a 15 minute-walk to the old district Habana Vieja. El Vedado district is also nearby, known for its art deco style buildings and exciting nightlife.
The Cozy Palace, Marrakesh
There are many stunning places you could choose to stay in Morocco, but if it’s a romantic Airbnb you’re looking for, then The Cozy Palace is the one.
Step inside this enchanting Riad and you’ll find yourself in a Moroccan style paradise. Luxurious beds, a rooftop terrace, and crackling fireplaces provide all the necessary elements for a romantic escape.
Cliffside Waterfront Retreat in Guatemala
You’re going to have to hike a bit to get to this property; this cliffside villa is perched atop a mighty cliff 150 feet above the water. There’s many fantastic features included in this property, but without a doubt, the selling point is going to be the VIEWS. A panoramic vista awaits you, with views of Lake Atitlan and 3 volcanoes.
A Remote Cottage in West Iceland
Iceland is one of the hottest places to travel these days. But as it can be a fairly expensive destination, an Airbnb is a smart way to save a bit of money.
For a romantic getaway, seclusion in nature can be the ideal scenario for two, and you’ll fully get that in this cozy cabin set on a hill just outside the village of Búðardalur. The listing calls this a Piece of Heaven, and that’s what it looks like. At night, warm up by the woodstove before heading outside to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights. There may not be any more romantic trip than this.
A Romantic Bali Escape
In Bali, your Instagram travel dreams can come true. You’ve definitely seen photos of couples swimming in private pools in luxury villas. With this Airbnb you can live that same paradise lifestyle. This particular villa in Seminyak is soooo pretty, and is setup perfectly for honeymooners or couples looking for romance. From the airy canopied bedroom to the spacious shower under the sky, every element of this Airbnb is designed with bliss in mind.
Grand and Cozy 1920’s Studio in San Francisco
For me, older eras are synonymous with romance. Those who love the 1920s can have a romantic vacation set back in time in this San Francisco studio apartment. This property is in a convenient part of Bernal Heights. Turn on the gas fireplace if the nights get chilly, and spend your days exploring San Francisco hand in hand.
