The Most Stunning Airbnb Rentals In Miami

Known for its renowned nightlife and picture-perfect beaches, Miami is a star-studded city that encourages a great time at all hours of the day and night. From hitting the beach for a variety of water sports or sunbathing, to exploring the more historical side of this heavily Latin-influenced city, there are several reasons to plan a trip to this southern Florida metropolis. While Miami is known for having very lavish and upscale resorts and beachside hotels, there are also an abundance of Airbnbs available for travelers who prefer a more authentic or low-key experience. There are also Airbnbs that offer great value for more budget-conscious travelers as well.

Though there are plenty of modern, penthouse-style rentals that boast pristine ocean views and luxurious amenities, Airbnb also gives visitors the option to experience a more peaceful and private accommodation in Miami. From a nautical-inspired stay on a sailboat to colorful homes in Little Havana, these are the most stunning Airbnb rentals in Miami, according to House Digest.

Take in the ocean views at this luxury Airbnb

If ocean views are a priority during your visit to Miami, this luxury apartment is sure to satisfy. Centrally located close to everything you need from downtown to South Beach, this stunning apartment is the perfect place to call home base for the ultimate Miami experience, as noted by the Airbnb listing. Between the modern furniture and upscale décor, this rental sets the tone for a lavish weekend. Best of all, the apartment has a huge balcony for you to enjoy during your stay, boasting epic ocean views and a cool sea breeze.

Once you are ready to venture out of the luxurious Airbnb, head down to the pool to swim some laps or lounge and tan. In addition to the pool, the building also houses a gym, pool table, and ping pong table for communal use. Though it is an apartment building, the amazing amenities and services make a vacation at this rental feel more reminiscent of a hotel or resort.

Check out the colorful Casa Havana Historic House

With bright orange stucco walls and a deep blue trim, it is nearly impossible to miss the Casa Havana Historic House in Little Havana. According to the Airbnb listing, this property is totally gated and secure, giving you optimal privacy and protection as you soak up the Miami sun. At 1,500 square feet, this house can fit up to six people across two spacious bedrooms, meaning you'll be able to spread out and feel right at home during your stay. The white and bright interior has some great pops of color that really contribute to the Cuban vibe that the house embodies. However, the blue hues throughout the kitchen set it apart from the rest of the house, making it a great spot for cooking and gathering.

While the house has all of the necessary amenities such as Wifi and central AC, the front porch is one of the best parts of this rental. Lounge in the hammock or take a seat and enjoy a nice cup of Cuban coffee in the morning before heading out to explore the city. Being that the Casa Havana Historic House is located in the heart of Miami, there are several restaurants and bars that are within walking distance.

The Current Penthouse boasts amazing amenities and even better views

From the sky-high ceilings to the massive glass windows that allow you to feel connected to the ocean even from the interior of the house, this rental truly is one-of-a-kind.

While the majority of the interior is very modern and contemporary, with an abundance of cool tones and minimalistic décor, there is nothing quite as mind-blowing as the floating staircase. Enjoy uninterrupted views as you ascend upstairs where you'll find access to a large terrace that offers front-row seating for sunset or sunrise. Though amazing restaurants and nightlife are only a short drive away, convincing yourself to leave this rental might be more difficult than you expect.

Indulge in an upscale visit at this luxurious Miami home

While staying in a more traditional house might not be the norm when visiting Miami, this two-bedroom home near the city's Design District gives guests a true taste of Miami while still offering them some space and privacy, per the Airbnb listing. If going out to the bars and clubs is not at the top of your list, this luxurious and upscale home provides a more peaceful and low key-stay in this otherwise busy city.

Chill by the pool at this bright Miami bungalow

According to the Airbnb listing, this colorful and vibrant Miami bungalow was named as one of the best Airbnbs according to Travel + Leisure in 2019. This studio guest house can accommodate two guests for an intimate stay that is still spacious enough to avoid being cramped or uncomfortable. With a private entrance and patio, guests of this beachside bungalow will still be able to find a solid amount of isolation in this guesthouse. Though there is not a full kitchen, there is a small kitchenette for simple cooking. Plus, you'll most likely want to walk to all of the surrounding restaurants and cafes rather than stay at home for your meals.

One of the most beloved amenities at this rental is definitely the on-site pool that is surrounded by bright green, lush vegetation, creating a tropical and serene setting. Take a dip or lay out on one of the lounge chairs and catch up on a good book while soaking in some sun.

Though the neighborhood is very quiet and low-key, guests are able to simply walk a couple of blocks over to Calle Ocho for some amazing bars, restaurants, and Cuban-inspired cafes. Since it is a studio, the space is definitely limited inside, but it is made to be totally cozy with bright walls and simple décor. In the evenings, enjoy a drink under the twinkling string lights on the patio before heading out for a fun night on the town. Keep in mind that the rental has no TV, meaning you'll want to take advantage of other activities to occupy your time.
