Have the winter blues and the cold has just swept in? We feel you. We are dreaming of a lush tropical escape where all we do is lay on a hammock as our personal (and shirtless) butler brings us rum-filled cocktails. (…Don’t judge us, it’s a fantasy).
We all want to get away, but with the holidays just passing, our wallets are wiped clean and we can’t afford luxuriously expensive 5 star resorts. But no matter your budget, big or small, it is still possible to ditch your coat for a bikini (or swim trunks, of course). Airbnb’s offer you the opportunity to not only live the life of a local, but they can also be quite affordable. Here are 10 airbnb’s under $100 from locations around the world that won’t break the bank:
Thailand is breathtaking. While it may not be cheap to fly to Thailand, one you are there, you can easily live like a king or queen. Just take this airbnb in Phuket Thailand for instance… those views are priceless.
Puerto Rico, everything we want in an island getaway, and if you like the city lifestyle, staying in San Juan is easily accessible with plenty of airbnb’s like the one above that are less than $100.
Cape Town offers cosmopolitan and beach vibes wrapped up into one unique experience. Why not explore this beautiful city, with this airbnb starting at just $49, what are you waiting for?
4. Buenos Aires
Located right off Avenue 9 de Julio, marked for Argentina’s day of independence, and it also happens to be the widest street in the world. It runs through the heart of the city and provides direct access to transportation, grocery stores, restaurants, prime shopping and more. A short walk to the waterfront as well, this airbnb is a gateway to the best of Buenos Aires.
The perfect Australian escape. Located in Byron bay, this little bungalow is a short walk to the beach and only a 15 minute walk to town. Perfect for couples who want to get down and cosy. You also have access to the owner’s bicycles to use at your own enjoyment to explore the surrounding areas.
We are speechless. While you can still find places much cheaper than $61 a night, we had to include this place because, well, pictures speak louder than words. This penthouse studio has a 360 degree rooftop view of Boracay, an island in the Philippines known for its beautiful white sand beaches and long happy hours. There is even a tub that you can soak up all your worries in (like you’ll have any while you are here).
So colorful and look at that price! For $46/night, it is a steal. While is isn’t directly on the beach, a short 20-30 minute walk to paradise is a small price to pay. This Airbnb gives off serious chill vibes with bright inviting colors perfect for a relaxing week of doing nothing but soaking in the sun and enjoying a nice cocktail in the backyard at night. What more could you ask for?
“Uh- Miami yeah, yeah…south beach, bringing the heat- jig it out, uh”[icon type=”fa-headphones” color=”#999999″ size=”16px” style=”plain” link=”” new_window=”true” ]
Oh Miami, a place we love and hate. But mostly love. This Airbnb, located right on South Beach, provides access to everything you could ever want…and all for under $100. Shops, restaurants, and of course, the beach, are all right outside your (airbnb) door.
Jungle vibes, beach vibes, monkey’s outside your window? A complete tropical getaway in Playa Grande, on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. It is a sleepy village where you can kick back and relax. Playa Grande is known for it’s excellent surfing, but the waves are calm enough for recreational swimming too.
10. Rio De Janiero
This airbnb provides the best of both worlds. Discover the bustling streets of Rio one day and the next, relax on the quiet beach steps outside your place. The airbnb is located only minuted from Lebnon, one of the most affluent neighborhoods in the city with plenty of shops, restaurants, and infinite beaches.
