Summertime, in our minds, is intrinsically linked to sand dunes, ocean views, and relaxing under the sun — aka beach houses. And, in 2022, the best beach houses on Airbnb are neck-in-neck with, if not better than, resort stays. We’re talking private beach access, personal space (hello peace and quiet), crashing waves just under bedroom windows, and more non-hotel, Airbnb-only perks. This year, instead of simply daydreaming about that ideal hot-weather getaway, actually make the trip happen by renting a beach-front Airbnb.
Ahead, you'll find a prime selection of the best beach house rentals Airbnb has to offer across the globe. From luxury Dominican Republic villas to breezy SoCal bedrooms and houses perched on tropical Florida shores, these homes check all the boxes for the perfect summer vacay and are dangerously enticing — trust us, we almost booked a few while writing this up. Scroll through, take a peek at some unique coastal stays, and start planning the Instagram pics now.
