Three New England Airbnb rentals named the best in the United States

Three New England Airbnb rentals top the best in the United States. And we couldn’t be prouder! (Also, we’re not surprised. We have some serious coastal bragging rights.)

Conde Nast Traveler recently ranked the Best Airbnbs Beach Houses in the United States. New England is home to three.

The website found “22 of the best beach houses in America that offer everything you need for a perfect summer vacation—or any other season for that matter.”

Conde Nast weighed the pics on ratings, response rates and Superhost status.

“All this means that you’re virtually guaranteed to get what you see online, and have smooth communication with the host,” reported.

The Rise of Airbnb

As you know, Airbnb swooped into New England like a boss, shaking up the hotel scene big time. Cozy cabins, quaint cottages, and historic homes popped up on your screen, all ready for a stay.

The cookie-cuter hotel rooms became a thing of the past. Now your neighbor’s beachside cottage was up for grabs.

Tourists ditched the traditional hotels for a taste of local life. They wanted more than just a bed; they wanted an experience. And Airbnb delivered, offering unique stays that screamed personality.

Suddenly, every spare room became a potential goldmine. It was like a game of Monopoly, but with real houses.

Why Travelers Benefit

Why settle for an expensive, small hotel room when you could snag an ocean-view Airbnb. Waking up to the sound of waves crashing, with the salty breeze right there. You can split the cost with more than one person. You can do laundry without breaking the bank. There’s no kids running around in the hallway outside your door at 6 a.m. And no wild parties keeping you up at night (unless it’s your own!)

Plus, you’ll have all the comforts of home, from a fully stocked kitchen to quirky decor.
