Whether you choose a South Beach penthouse, a cozy Coconut Grove cottage, or Airstream glamping in Wynwood, your Miami memories start where you stay. So be sure to pick a good one.

Miami is mood-altering. It’s a city full of energy and a playground for fun. It’s all about sandy beaches, art deco architecture, fashion, food, art and nightlife. And while Art Basel, the South Beach Wine & Food Festival, and Winter Music Conference reel in trendy crowds, everyday travelers find Miami’s allure in its museums, galleries, and a great Cubano sandwich. To really experience the city, you need to get out into its eclectic neighborhoods — so staying in one should be a top priority.

Cuban culture abounds in Little Havana while Little Haiti is full of Caribbean influence. With its old Spanish charm and architecture, Coral Gables is a taste of the Mediterranean, while Wynwood’s happening arts district and Coconut Grove’s laid-back bay are also worthy of exploration.

Regardless of your preference for an airbnb in Miami, whether it’s a penthouse, a bungalow, or something entire different, be sure to get out in the city to take in all the quirks and charms Miami offers.

Why you should stay: Find utopia in the middle of Miami.

  • Sleeps: 9
  • Minimum stay:2 nights
  • Rates from: $450/night

Your Garden of Eden awaits in North Miami. The Bamboo Bungalow is an oasis planted in a peaceful neighborhood not far from antique shops and eclectic restaurants.

Full-size arcade games, a relaxing swimming pool, fire pit and shaded sitting area are just the beginning. Want to immerse yourself in the neighborhood? Then follow the host’s dining recommendations.

Why you should stay: Cute and affordable cottage with a chill vibe in the heart of the design district.

  • Sleeps: 10
  • Minimum stay: 1 night
  • Rates from: $279/night

Miami’s Bohemian bungalow serves as an extension of its artsy Buena Vista neighborhood. It’s a cozy four-bedroom retreat with a relaxing backyard that provides your own space to relax while still being near the city’s action. The biggest decision you’ll likely make is whether to leave the small plunge pool and sun area (observed by a Buddha atop a waterfall) to explore Wynwood and South Beach. No easy choice.

It’s one of the more affordable airbnbs in Miami at only around $30 a night per person if you pack the house. The price varies wildly throughout the year, though.

“The bungalow is a perfect escape! We were able to enjoy coffee in the morning on the front porch, tons of natural sunlight throughout and a great outdoor space in the back, plus rooms are very clean and stylish.”

This massive five-bedroom, five-bath rental in Wynwood is perfect for large families or big get-togethers with friends.

Two kitchens make cooking a breeze, should you decide to stay in and cook for yourself instead of strolling out to the chic Wynwood eateries.

Why you should stay: Unleash your imagination in a playful property in the arts district.

  • Sleeps: 8
  • Minimum stay: 1 night
  • Rates from: $299/night

Another option sitting in the artsy Wynwood neighborhood is this professional penthouse. The space embraces the creativity of the Wynwood Walls with whimsical 3D wall art and a massive private patio with a ceiling painted in vibrant rainbow colors.

The ultra modern space showcases tons of art, has smart TVs for streaming, and a fully equipped kitchen with a 200-piece culinary set. It’s quite huge and is pet-friendly for up to two dogs, though the fee to bring them is a bit steep. It’s a two-story space with high 25-foot ceilings and large windows that bathe the main living area in natural light. It feels like sleeping in a museum (or a luxury penthouse suite, which it kind of is.)

Why you should stay: Serene and stylish beach escape.

  • Sleeps: 3
  • Minimum stay: 1 night
  • Rates from: $189/night

If you like your morning coffee with a view of the beach (and who doesn’t?) then this is the place for you. Just a few barefoot steps away from the crashing surf, this pristine white studio at Pure Miami Beach has everything you need for a seaside retreat.

Should you choose to stay close to home, the resort provides beach chairs and snorkel gear and the tennis courts are at your disposal. If you venture out, the studio is just a couple miles from the nightlife and action of South Beach. It sleeps three, but is probably better for a couple unless someone is cool bunking up on the smaller couch

Why you should stay: A calming Bali-esque tropical cottage.

  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum stay: 1 night
  • Rates from: $209/night

Talk about an escape within an escape: the Coconut Grove Sanctuary has the ability to both embrace and muffle Miami, presenting itself as a teak-heavy and Costa Rican-proud property. Inspired by the islands, the home’s magic lies in the interior details and the lush landscape.

The outdoor oasis features overhead vines, strung hammocks, flowering plants, a tiki hut, and an herb and vegetable garden. It’s one of the best airbnb in Miami for someone who wants their stay to be just as appealing and fun as the city itself.

“Expect to feel entranced. There’s almost a battle to enjoy the cute studio or go outside and pick an area to be engulfed in.”

  • Sleeps: 4

  • Rates from: $141/night

Welcome to Margaritaville — well, sort of. This is probably as close as you can get to Florida’s southernmost keys while still in Miami proper. The Coconut Grove two-bed cottage has craftsmanship reminiscent of a salt cottage found in Key West and its palm-shaded porch with lime green chairs only adds to the charm.

Inside, marble floors and granite countertops bring a modern edge to the comfortable beach home. Bungalow homes are one of Florida’s specialities and this is a great choice if you want a classic Florida beach experience.

Why you should stay: You’ll be crocodile rockin’ in this Coconut Grove cottage.

  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum stay: 4 nights
  • Rates from: $150/night

Tucked away in a quiet Coconut Grove neighborhood, Bob’s bungalow is a classic South Florida cottage just steps away from a grocery store, shops, and restaurants — you can live like a local. But this Miami airbnb has more than just convenience going for it.

The home is immaculate with vaulted wood-beam ceilings and a flowing interior design tied together with a series of stunning crocodile images. The outdoor space isn’t all that large, but it’s private with well-tended greenery to exude a sense of the tropics.

“Our stay at Bob’s bungalow exceeded all expectations. It was a great place to stay as a couple – it was very private and had everything we needed and more. In addition, it was exceptionally clean.”

Why you should stay: Come for the view, stay for the beach vibe.

  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum stay: 3 nights
  • Rates from: $175/night

The building itself is modest, but where the beach pad shines is in its brilliant design that mirrors its seaside locale. There’s a killer view and you can be on the beach without breaking a sweat. The added beach-y touches include shell-filled jars and a recipe book on how to craft tropical cocktails (try one!)

Don’t forget to check out the teal chest with board games, beach paddles, frisbees, magazines and books – basically everything you’ll need for your Hollywood Beach escape. The home isn’t pet- or kid-friendly, so plan on an adults-only getaway.
