If you’ve ever booked a stay on Airbnb, you know that a lot of times the properties may offer better accommodations than some of the most popular hotels — and sometimes for a fraction of the price. Not to mention, during the pandemic you may feel safer traveling when you’re staying in a private residence. Finding a decent Airbnb isn’t tricky, but there are some properties that are more luxurious than others. If you’ve been looking for a place to get away and relax, it’s understandable why you may want a spa-like retreat. That’s why I’ve done the research, and can attest that these properties are the crème de la crème of luxury, especially when it comes to their bathrooms.
If you’re about to embark on a relaxing vacation, you may be searching for a whirlpool bath or a rainfall shower. But that’s not all you can find — saltwater soaking tubs, heated floors, and outdoor showers are just some of the added bonuses within these lavish vacation homes. Whether it be an incredible view of the California mountains from the soaking tub, or the outdoor shower looking over the Costa Rica rainforest, these wild bathrooms on Airbnb right now will make you feel like you’re in paradise.
And luckily, you don’t have to just gush over the photos of the incredibly wild bathrooms — they’re all available to rent now so you can actually book a stay.
