Summer might be coming to a close, but that doesn’t mean that vacation season is actually over. You can travel any time of year. If you dislike temperatures over 100 degrees, it is probably even better for you to travel in the fall or spring to get optimal weather for your trip. One of the best places to get a good deal on travel is Airbnb.

Hotels can be very costly with their high nightly rates and limited space. You can save a lot of money, but also get a place with a lot of room and amenities by booking a vacation rental. Airbnb is a steal for big travel groups, as you can rent out an entire house. As Airbnb has seen continued success over the years, they recently released a list of the most popular houses on their website.

To celebrate their 10th anniversary, Airbnb revealed the list of houses that appeared on the most wish lists and they vary from treehouses to mega-mansions.
