Airbnb has given travelers the opportunity to stay in famous homes, unique cottages, and even strangers' apartments. But one type of stay Airbnb is particularly good at is giving potential guests something to drool over.
With the use of Airbnb's wish list tool, travelers can bookmark their dream vacations on the app, giving them something to fantasize about while they plan their stay on international vacations. These luxury homes exist all over the world, and Airbnb has compiled a list of the ones that people have loved the most over the last 10 years.
Here is a look at some of the insane homes you can rent on Airbnb (assuming you're able to book in advance):
