With the rise of Airbnb and other home rental companies, evidence has shown that vacationers are increasingly opting to stay in private homes instead of hotels.

And it’s a trend that’s ripe to continue: vacation rentals offer things that hotels can’t always provide, like additional privacy, more space per person, and amenities such as kitchens and washing machines. They also are often less expensive than their hotel counterparts, and can make guests feel like they are having a more authentic experience, living more as the locals do.

Compiled by HomeToGo – a vacation rental search engine that aggregates results from sites like HomeAway, VRBO, and TripAdvisor – this list of luxury rental homes around the world features jaw-dropping villas, stylish penthouses, and five-star amenities. They will make you want to head off immediately to experience their offerings for yourself, but be warned: once you arrive, you may want to move in permanently.
