Netflix’s The World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals has proved to be a Narnian gateway for travellers. The erudite hosts partially adumbrated the idea of travel and leisure in a post-pandemic world as they started filming in a pre-pandemic crowded Bali in 2020 but resumed and completed shooting in summer, the same year. 

Megan Batoon, Jo Franco and Bravo star Luis D. Ortiz covered the whole spectrum of varying budgets and travel styles while listing down some bizarre and unique rental properties. The rentals featured on the show are readily available to book from AirBnb and Vrbo, around the globe. To help you navigate the list of notable stays endorsed in the show, here's a list of six of the best ones.

The Quetzalcoatl`s Nest 

Located in Naucalpan de Juárez, a lush, forested area just west of Mexico City, Quetzalcoatl’s Nest presents itself as a pioneer of organic architecture. A fitting tribute to Mexican art and culture, the Condominium is a combination of a park and housing complex built inside a giant, intricately decorated structure.

The Sitka Lighthouse

Situated in Alaska, United States, the Sitka Lighthouse built in 1983 by a native veterinarian Burgess Bauder has functioned both as a navigational beacon and a vacation rental since its inception. The private island housing the magnificent lighthouse continues to double as a picturesque resort for weddings and business retreats.

The vertical two-bedroom luxury place is just a five-minute water taxi ride from Sitka. Cradled in the tranquil lap of nature, you will be surrounded by marine life (one can catch sight of humpback whales, sea otters, sea lions, sea urchins and and starfishes). The sound of serene waves hitting against the rocks adds to your authentic experience as the temporary lighthouse keeper.

Snow Igloo

A small family run business located next to the lake Pyhäjärvi and Pyhä-Luosto National Park, Finland, this Snow Igloo set-up is stunning. Cuddle with your better half while witnessing the aurora spectacle. A warm apartment apart from the igloo that accommodates upto 4 people is also available in case you get cold feet.

The house is equipped with toilets, shower, living room and a small kitchen that guests are free to use. Since all restaurants and a supermarket are 10 km away at the ski resort you can prepare food for yourself beforehand and microwave it before consumption.  

The Atlanta Alpaca Treehouse 

One of the most wish-listed AirBnb’s in the world, the Atlanta Alpaca Treehouse in Atlanta, Georgia is placed right in the heart of a private bamboo forest. The space harbours a rescue farm for rescued llamas, alpacas, chickens, dogs, and cats. Featured in an array of music videos and indie movies, the property is dotted with quaint antique architectural marvels like Victorian French doors, stained glass and pine floors.

It has a composting toilet, and an antique enamelware wash basin which renders to the primordial ethos it strives to create. The treehouse also has a private, green marble water closet as well as a private, white marble bathroom with a glorious walk-in shower and an archaic vitreous china sink in their granite house built nearby. A dedicated rustic forest path leads to the 12x12 treehouse.

 

The TreeHouse at Danville 

Located on a 5-acre parcel of ground surrounded by oak and magnolia trees, the treehouse is a15feet high structure between two giant oak trees in Geneva, Florida. In pursuit of building one of the most unique treehouses in the United States, the builders - Dan and Deborah - employed their creative prowess to create structures using repurposed items. They also built a residential elevator to make it look like a tree trunk to get you up into the Yurt located in the trees. On the upper deck, there is a swing chair and table that overlooks the entire property. A gas grill, gas fireplace and seating for four is placed on the yurt deck. Along with the elevator, there is a circa 1926 classic fire tower stairway from a local fire tower. On the mid deck you will find a spectacular hot tub created from a DC 10 jet engine cowling. The accent lighting and an indulgent solitude in the middle of nowhere makes the night sky overwhelmed with stars all the more special.
