Growing up, did you ever dream of staying in a treehouse? There’s a good chance I thought about it, oh just about every day of my childhood. I wanted to hear the wind whispering through the trees, watch as the stars danced across the night sky, and experience all the magic that treehouses possess.
If you’re still holding out hope for that dream, you can make it happen…kind of!
Instead of putting in all the labor and having to worry about maintenance, why not live out your childhood dream in one of these seriously cool treehouses around the world? Yep, this truly is a “you can have your cake and eat it too” kind of situation!
Whether you want to stay for a night or go off-grid for the week, most of these epic places can be booked through Airbnb!
I searched far and wide to bring you the coolest treehouses you can rent around the world!
The Secluded Intown Treehouse in Atlanta, Georgia has been voted Airbnb’s “#1 Most Wished For Listing Worldwide” in 2016 and 2017!
The treehouse consists of 3 different areas: mind, body, and spirit—all connected by rope bridges. Yep, rope bridges that slightly swing and are covered in the prettiest twinkling lights!
Does it get any more magical than that?
The “mind” room is the perfect place to cozy up with a good book. The “body” room has a bed with wheels—so you can roll it outside and sleep overlooking the stream below. And want to surround yourself with pine trees? Hang out in the “spirit” room, otherwise known as the hammock deck.
You’ve gotta love all those fairy lights!
Atlanta, Georgia must be doing something right because the Alpaca Treehouse in the Bamboo Forest is yet another treehouse that has been featured on Airbnb’s “Most Wish Listed” list.

The minute you arrive, you are going to want to sip on a cup of coffee on the large porch that’s held up by black locust trees.
And hey, if you fall in love with it, you can even host your wedding or shoot a movie there.

Keep an eye out for the sloths hanging around in the treetops!
