This cozy cottage right on the May River includes a private dock with amazing views of the water (even in the wintertime), plus a fully equipped gym in the garage, a barbecue, and a fire pit.

2. The pool house in Los Angeles

After a long day of rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous, this private pool house is the perfect place to relax and unwind. The term ‘pool house’ doesn’t quite do it justice as this place has its own kitchen, bathroom and backyard – but the real winner is the jaw-dropping view over the sparkling city.

5. The Bayside cottage in Key Largo

The Bayside cottage Airbnb has it all. From the perfect, peaceful location to the rustic, natural vibes, this Airbnb is ideal for those who want to recharge and unplug from digital life (limited Wi-Fi here, sorry!). Embrace the wildlife around the Airbnb, you might be lucky to spot a Manatee or dolphin on a beach stroll, or take your fishing gear to the pier! This cottage sleeps two guests in a cozy queen-sized bed, making this cottage ideal for romantic breaks or solo trips. You'll have use of a kitchenette and an outside BBQ grill for more substantial meals. A rustic but homely environment adding tranquility to your vacation. Bliss!

6. The river house in New Orleans

Tucked away in the historic Faubourg Marigny, but just minutes from the French Quarter, this luxe, three-story house feels like a secret hideaway. Each floor is a separate apartment where you'll find antique decor, retro furnishings and contemporary amenities. Soak in the sun on the 500-square-foot westward-facing balcony or in the swimming pool surrounded by lush gardens.

7. The luxury beach villa in San Diego

There’s luxury and then there’s Californian luxury—seriously, if ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ had been set on the West Coast, this place would have been Leonardo DiCaprio’s house. Kitted out with an oceanfront hot tub and a sun-soaked front deck bigger than most people’s house, this villa is the ultimate place to watch the sunset over the Pacific. Unfortunately, most of us would need a Wall Street-sized paycheck to afford a trip here, but if you’ve got the cash make sure you book this one.

8. The architect’s dream in Austin

If Hobbits had access to Architectural Digest, this would be the result. Looking like something out of Tolkien's The Shire and an episode of ‘Grand Designs’, this one-of-a-kind house is all twists of bulbous, spiralling plaster and terracotta tiles. Originally designed by two architecture students in the 1970s, The Bloomhouse was renovated in 2017 to create a modern other-worldly retreat. Wander through the labyrinthine corridors, sleep in plush beds beneath marshmallow walls, shower in built-in rotund bathtubs and cook dinner in the circular kitchen. There’s also a beautiful outdoor terrace for alfresco meals.

Breezy, bright and with a beautiful cacti-filled garden, you’ll feel far away from the winter blues in this rustic cottage in Fort Lauderdale. There’s a stylish, minimal colour palette throughout with inspired touches like the circular doorway, open kitchen with exposed beams and Mediterranean terra-cotta ceramic tiles. The bedrooms are full of relaxing clean white lines, and plush bedding, and there’s a freestanding tub to soak in, in the bathroom. Even more tranquil magic awaits in the garden where you’ll find a beautifully landscaped space with alfresco dining tables, a terrace with a hot tub and fire pit and lawns lined with bombastic cacti that bloom annually.
