Beach vibes and sunshine only. Florida is known for its incredible beaches and the outrageous number of sunny days per year. Ugh, jealous. But Florida is actually also one of the Union's most diverse states. From the Everglades’ world-beating nature to the Sunshine State’s unique cities, there’s a world to discover in the Panhandle and beyond.

Let's not beat around the bush, there are a ton of reasons to visit Florida (not just for Disney World). And when you do visit, there's no doubt you’ll need a top-tier place to stay – which is where we come in. We’ve sifted through the state’s Airbnbs to find the finest around so there's something to suit everyone. Happy vacay, baby.

1. The retro camper in Brooksville

This ultra cute and retro campervan Airbnb is a Florida dream. Giving you a more unique stay on your trip to the state, you can relax in nature after a busy day of exploring and sightseeing (or just lounging on the beach). Set up on 1.6 acres of land, you may be lucky enough to spot a raccoon or armadillo roaming around. Perfect for a couple, or two adults and a child, there is a full-sized bed and a dinette that converts into a child's bed. There's also a small bathroom and a kitchen with gas cooktop, microwave, fridge/freezer, and coffee machine – everything you'll need for a comfortable stay.

With a queen-sized bed in the loft, it sleeps two guests comfortably and has modern amenities to ensure it's your home away from home. The tiny home includes a full kitchen, fully stocked with all the equipment you might need, plus a cozy living area with TV and Wi-Fi. Make use of the outdoors with the gazebo, fire pit, and charcoal grill, a great way to spend the summer evenings.

After a top-notch beachside vacay? If so, you need to give this place some consideration. Not only is the entire place beach-themed (we’re talking shell lamps, anchor-shaped wall hangings, the lot) but the sand itself is literally steps away from the front door. The chilled-out town of Gulfport is right there, too – it's a low-key cracker of a city full of great food and hosting a vibrant art scene. If you’re looking for lazy beach days, this is just the ticket. St Petersburg (Florida) is just five miles away, too.

We know, we know. It kind of looks like what a wooly mammoth might look like if someone turned it into an Airbnb. Sure. But take a closer look and this Airbnb in Key West is spectacular. Wake up every morning to the sea outside under a tiny sloping roof on the Key West waters before hanging out on the hammock all day, reading, having a beer, or just taking it all in. What could be better?

No, the band isn't lost at sea. It's you. In this floating modern houseboat Airbnb in Florida. Proving small doesn't mean less mighty, this houseboat is an ocean lover's paradise. With lounge chairs on the rooftop balcony, you can catch some rays and gently rock to the waves of the sea. The cozy boat isn't your typical stay but gives you the chance to live your sailor dream. Perfect for a romantic trip for two guests, the surrounding windows in the bedroom offer Insta' worthy sunrises and sunsets, or enjoy the fresh sea breeze while grilling on the BBQ.

There’s nothing Goofy about this Mickey-Mouse-themed condo.

The space itself sleeps four, so there's room for all the family.

For a spot of luxury, grab this eight-bed in Encore Resort, located right next to Disneyland – that’s if you can ever drag yourself away from its insane outdoor pool surrounded by sun loungers and hammocks to chill in. The inside is even more lavish, with a huge dining table and living area, complete with a flat-screen TV. If you run out of things to do, there’s a grill and basketball hoop, too.

This log cabin on the river in Brooksville, Florida is right in the middle of the woods and is surrounded by a bunch of biking and hiking trails and kayaks on the riverfront. Inside is utterly luxurious, with a Scandi-style design and a cozy living area, along with a bedroom that can only be accessed via the little staircase. If you want to escape, try this.

This Airbnb takes riverside accommodation quite literally. Sleeping up to three people, this Hunter 26 sailboat is anchored in Key Biscayne Bay, so you’ll be treated to gorgeous views of Miami. When you want to visit dry land, your skipper will take you to the famous Coconut Grove area via a dinghy. Inside the boat, you have nautical and luxury interiors, and kayaks. If you want to step somewhere a little busier, you're also anchored pretty close to Miami. Not sure why you would though – the sunsets are epic here.

If you’re looking for something a little different, why not try pitching up in an actual barn? Yep, really. This private barn studio in Florida farm is surrounded by grazing donkeys and horses (named Daisy, Sundance, and Jazzy), so you can actually connect with nature.

Propel your holiday to new heights by staying in an active airplane hanger. That’s right, the most 'Florida Man' option on this list features an eclectic display of plane paraphernalia and involves sharing a roof with a Cessna 172. On top of that, there are alpacas, goats, and chickens roaming around the property. When you need some time away from the pets and planes, you’ll find some beautiful Florida beaches just half an hour down the road – you're also near Orlando, should you fancy swapping planes for Mickey and the gang, or Cars.

Airbnb

13. The oceanfront condo in Panama City Beach

Sleeping up to four but better suited for two as no one loves a sofa bed – although it would half the price – this Panama Beach-based condo is ideal for water lovers. Not only do you get access to the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico but you can also splash around in the oceanfront waterfall swimming pool, three hot tubs, and an additional heated pool – H2-Woah! When you're on dry land, this beautiful spot has a gorgeous deck overlooking the sea you've been having fun in all day, and is a relative stone's throw from Panama City.  

The tiny creek-side cabin in Jacksonville
Airbnb

14. The tiny creek-side cabin in Jacksonville

Whoever first said "good things come in small packages" might just have been talking about this place. Perfect for a romantic getaway, this cabin seems like it is in the middle of nowhere with the creek running gently by just outside (perfect for canoeing, FYI), but in actual fact, central Jacksonville is just 15 minutes away – the best of both worlds. What’s more, it's super budget-friendly. In small but mighty style, this place comes with bed reviews described as comfortable, a kitchen, a lounge, and a bathroom – it's a bit of a tardis, actually.

This 2000sqft house (yes, you read that correctly) is the ideal base camp for bigger groups or those with kids. This place comes with bikes, a games room and, of course, a swimming pool. When your troops are finished splashing around, you’ll find plenty to do nearby, with parks, a bay, beaches, trails, and even a fort to explore. Along with the games room, the house contains a spacious dining room and lounges, great spaces for board games and dining (obviously).
