This Is The Most Popular Airbnb In The World

A mushroom-shaped wooden treehouse cabin in Aptos, California has been revealed as the most popular Airbnb in the world — and it’s already fully-booked until October this year.

The three-bedroom dome house is loved for its geodesic loft (known as the ‘mushroom cap’), large overhanging trees and secluded, private feel. It’s the perfect off-the-beaten-track stay for anyone looking for a real country bolthole escape.

Owners Kitty and Michael have listed the property since July 2009 and the crowds just keep on coming. It’s just a 10 minutes’ walk to the local buttery-soft sandy beach and also close to the famous 10,000 acre Forest Nisene Marks State Park.


There are also plenty of wildlife and bird-watching opportunities for guests to enjoy. “If you love hummingbirds, bring your camera. Our garden is the year-round home to many Anna Hummingbirds (we usually have about 300 – 700 year-round). During the summer, we are also called home by many Rufus and Allen Hummers as well. So you have got to see our “Hummingbird Airport” where we feed them about 130 oz. of syrup on a summer day,” explain Kitty and Michael on the listing.


It’s decorated with wooden features, comfy furnishings, plus electrics to make your stay feel like home (there’s a whip-smart coffee machine, popcorn maker, small fridge and barbecue grill). But perhaps best of all are the lush green surroundings. You’ll wake up to the sound of the birds and fall asleep as happy as can be.
