If more travel is at the top of your New Year’s resolutions, we’re betting there’s an international hub on your list. fortunately, Airbnb just released its top destinations reportwhich covered where everyone stayed in 2022 and, more importantly, where we’ll all be vacationing in 2023. Unsurprisingly, places that recently reopened their borders such as Australia and New Zealand are trending, but one coastal town in Europe is looking like it will reign supreme. The most searches for future check-ins were for Málaga, Spain, a seaside perch known for golden beaches, tapas, and bringing Pablo Picasso into the world.
Even if you’re thrilled to get out of the house, the days are filled with sun, snacks, and art galleries call for a well-designed stay that feels like home to return to at night. Sifting through hundreds of listings can start to take the fun out of trip planning, so we dove in and handpicked a few spots we’d be happy to book.
Here for the Kitchen
This two-story rental will convince you to cook on vacation thanks to its sleek, easy-to-clean counters, loads of cabinet space, and—the best part—a hidden dishwasher. We’re picturing ourselves whipping up a Spanish omelet to enjoy in the courtyard and prepping sandwiches to tote to the shores of Pedregalejo.
Here for the View
As the adults lounge by this Mediterranean villa’s sprawling pool deck (for views of the Alboran Sea, post up on the patio), any kids in your crew can keep busy on the trampoline or at the ping-pong table.
Here for the Location
Even when shopping around for a rental, the most basic house-hunting principle applies: location, location, location. this condo checks that box, as it’s smack-dab in the middle of the city center—a fact you won’t forget once you’re inside thanks to the dreamy Juliette balcony. Excuse us while we open a second tab for Google Flights.
