We could easily spend hours lusting over all of the stunning homes on Airbnb – especially during the dreary throws of January.
Luckily, Airbnb has revealed which of their stunning properties has accumulated the most wanderlusting likes on Instagram over the past 12 months. Unsurprisingly, the most popular community-generated images were dominated by breathtaking views – because who wants to look out the window of their holiday home if there’s no view to see?
While we’re used to seeing Mauritian water villas and NYC skylines on the travel-grams of the trends, Airbnbs most popular property is actually based much further afield…
