The ‘Most Exceptional Vacation Homes Across the U.S.’ Were Just Announced by Vrbo — Here’s What It’s Like to Stay in One

It’s time to reserve a trip home for the summer, since Vrbo simply revealed its 2023 Holiday Residences of the Year. The “most exceptional vacation homes throughout the U.S.,” as the home-sharing company calls them, are picked based upon user ratings, among other criteria.

” This year’s Vacation Homes of the Year range from a city oasis and a relaxing ranch home under $400 a night, to a beachfront estate that can sleep the whole family and more,” John Gieselman, president of Expedia Brands (which owns Vrbo), stated in a press release. “Every single Vacation Home of the Year has a beautiful view, and combined, boast seven personal swimming pools and fire pits, 8 jacuzzis, and even five putting greens.”
Vrbo’s Vacation Homes of the Year include the “Happy Roadrunner” in Phoenix with panoramic views of the surrounding landscape and resort-style backyard, just minutes from the best activities the city needs to offer. In Dripping Springs, Texas, the “Riverfront Hideaway” is set on 5 Hill Country acres with direct river gain access to and a substantial wraparound balcony that connects the open-concept living space with outdoor dining locations. “Trestle House,” in Winter Park, Colorado, is a ski-in/ski-out home simply steps from the slopes, and only an hour-and-a-half drive from Denver.

This year’s perk property, “Villa Luna Nueva,” is situated in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. It’s the only holiday home on the list located outside the U.S.
I recently had the opportunity to stay at the Palm Springs, California, Vacation Home of the Year, and even as a rather seasoned travel writer who’s had the great fortune to remain at first-class properties around the world, I was wowed. The instant view of the light-filled living space, high ceilings, swimming pool, fire pit, and poolhouse lounge is really spectacular.
In a separate structure on the far side of the pool, a medspa retreat is equipped with a sauna, steam bath, and a waterfall tub in the center of a large room. The open lounge location boasts a fireplace, television, damp bar, and seating area. Close by, there’s an outdoor shower, putting green, fire pit, swimming pool table, ping pong table, and a covered location with a table seating 18.

Houses like this one are perfect for household reunions, groups of good friends, weddings, bachelor and bachelorette events, or weekend getaways. The Vrbo app for iOS or Android, offers the capability to search by places, dates, prices, and features. With Trip Boards, you can conserve prospective homes and share with a group, chat, vote, or get comments for preparing the vacation.
Vrbo chose the Vacation Homes of the Year from its portfolio of more than 2 million personal residential leasings, based upon strict criteria. The homes need to have a 4.9 or higher star score along with standout features and spaces for hanging out together with friends and family. They must attain “Premier Host status,” which is recognition for a proven performance history of providing remarkable guest experiences.
