One of the best parts of planning a trip is hunting for the perfect accommodation, and Airbnb is a go-to for finding properly unique places to stay. Whether we’re window shopping or weighing up our options, many of us spend ages wishlisting homes on the app – and now the platform has revealed which properties have been wishlisted most ahead of the summer season.

From a five-bed jungle oasis on the northeastern coast of Mexico to a striking designer micro-chalet tucked away in Quebec, there’s sure to be some solid summer inspo in this list. Just take a look at the homes below. 

These are the most sought-after homes on Airbnb for the summer

Sicilian Mountain Oasis, Nicosia, Italy

This Sicilian cottage is nestled in the Nebrodi mountains and is centred around eco-friendly hosting. You can even request a cooking class or a session of pilates.

The views that this place has of the Smokies is enough of a selling point, but the dazzling al-fresco terrace, theatre room and jacuzzi all top it off spectacularly.

Jungle Oasis, Akumal, Mexico

Holidaying in the jungle might sound like more faff than it’s worth – but not at this place. Just 20 minutes from Playa Del Carmen, this home is nestled in its own little jungle, so expect to see monkeys, coatis and lots of vibrant birds.
