You might think you’re too old to run away to a treehouse when you’re feeling a little overwhelmed. But the reality is, no matter how old you are, there’s something inherently magical about retreating to your makeshift home tucked away between leaves and branches.
As it turns out, isolation is a top priority for many of us. Whilst flashy beach-side villas, Moroccan riads or fancy French castle are what you’d assume to be Airbnb’s most popular listings, the truth is, not one, but two treehouses made it to the hospitality giant’s top ten rentals last year.
Lucky for us, treehouse listings are endless, so even the oldest of us can revisit the childlike sensation of safety and seclusion by bunking up in a secluded wooden structure—we’ve rounded up Airbnb’s best properties for summer 2019.
