It’s safe to say that Airbnb has irrevocably changed the way we travel. Gone are the days when we had to pay minimum $150 to literally stay in a shoebox-sized hotel room with only a bed, lamp and a fridge filled with $20 chocolate bars.
Now, thanks to the holiday rental booking website, your money goes so much further and the options are almost endless. You get to stay in a place that’s already furnished with homely comforts and can even be a little more picky about the neighbourhood you’re staying in.
But we’d be lying if we said we didn’t at least partially choose Airbnb listings based on their Insta-worthiness. It seems Airbnb are onto us, as they’ve taken to posting some of their prettier listings to their Instagram account. And luckily for us, CNBC have compiled all of their most-liked snaps of 2017 into a handy list for our browsing pleasure! Whether you pin them to your 2018 travel Pinterest board or use them for interior inspo for your own home, we guarantee they’re an absolute feast for the eyes.

Ugh, can you just imagine the Instagram pics you could take in this Mexican apartment? “From the waterfall wall filled with orchids, thirty-year-old interesting trees, the Indian monastery door, rounded corners, pleasing colours and a crystal clear clean mini pool surrounded by a white mayan rock walls, the view are beautiful and the feeling is peaceful,” reads the listing. Yes, please!
This quintessentially French apartment is one of the more affordable places on the list, currently priced at $138 per night. Don’t be surprised if there’s a bit of a wait list though, considering this post racked up more than 42,400 likes!
