As stay-at-home mandates are extended through April, many of us are getting a little stir crazy and — let’s face it — bored with our apartments and homes. To help you daydream about other places you could be stuck in, we rounded up some of the most beautiful, peaceful and social-distance friendly Airbnb homes.
This house has an entire lazy river built into the backyard. Lay back in a tube and drift through a maze of palm trees and waterfalls in the Arizona sun. And that’s just the beginning. This home also has a hot tub, basketball court, golf driving net, a putt-putt course, shuffleboard, a fire pit, and a game room — suffice it to say, you’ll never be bored. Bonus perk– the listing mentions on-demand grocery delivery.
10 guests, $1,250/night.
Tucked right into a mountain, this house would certainly keep you calm and relaxed while quarantining. The view is tranquil and the interior has a mellow modern design.

It even has a recreation room with yoga mats, candles, books and meditation pillows.

This house would surely host the most epic game of hide and seek. Built in the 1860s, the place is full of history and character. It has a large yard with a volleyball net and plenty of shade beneath a variety of tree species. With vine-covered brick, shuttered windows, gothic fireplaces, a reading nook under a staircase, and a small creaky attic in a tower — this home can fulfill all your spooky mansion dreams.

Pure paradise can be found in this lush three-story Florida estate. The secluded yard has a 50-foot pool and is surrounded by tropical greenery. It has terrace seating for sunbathing or some shaded relaxation. The home comes with 10 bicycles for riding around the neighborhood, paddleboards and snorkeling gear for the beach. Get a glimpse of how the other half lives with a giant kitchen, a private beach and an elevator (seriously.)

Yeah, it’s a castle. A 19th-century castellated residence in Ireland set on the banks of the Boro River, to be exact. The interior is a mix of regal and rustic with beautiful wallpapers, long halls and cozy sitting rooms. You could kill hours of time wandering around and going for walks on the large estate and surrounding countryside. You might even spot a herd of cows wander by. With an Airbnb this elegant and charming, who wouldn’t want to stay in?
