Thanks to its vast size, Texas is one of the more diverse parts of the U.S. If you travel around the Lone Star State, you’ll see everything from big-city life in Austin to places in the Texas Hill Country where there’s not another soul in sight. No matter where you go, Airbnb is one of the best ways to find quality vacation rentals in Texas, with some great Texas Airbnbs waiting for you.
To make planning your trip easier, we’ve put together this list of the absolute best Airbnbs in Texas. To ensure that these places are worth your time, we only include listings with superhosts – Airbnb hosts who have proven the quality of their properties with stellar service. You’ll also find a member of the exclusive Airbnb Plus program, meaning the company has verified the property’s quality with an-in person inspection.
Silo House at Laughing Llama Farm
If you want a somewhat quirky and unique Airbnb in Texas, you’ll find this farm silo a fun option for your vacation. Situated a little outside the city of Temple in central Texas, this farm stay offers plenty of peace and quiet.
While you may be skeptical of staying inside a space built to store grain, you’ll be stunned at how nice it looks inside. It cleverly repurposes various materials, using an old truck hood as a headboard and salvaged pipe for the stair railing. The ground floor is an open-concept living room and kitchen, while the loft is home to the bedroom with a queen bed. The silo can sleep up to four guests, thanks to the sofa bed in the living room.
To help make you comfortable, the rental includes air conditioning, Wi-Fi, TV, and a washer and dryer. It also has a pleasant porch area, where you can watch the sunset and use the barbecue grill. There’s even a truly rustic outdoor shower.
Escape the City to The Extraordinary Treehouse
Looking like something out of an interior design magazine, this gorgeous house is understandably among the best Texas Airbnbs out there. Found in the particularly leafy neighborhood of Little Forest Hills in Dallas, you’ll be within walking distance of White Rock Lake and the Dallas Arboretum once you cross the little bridge that leads up to this treehouse.
While this Dallas Airbnb is described as a treehouse, that speaks more to its environment than the actual structure itself. The house is surrounded by lots of trees though, and looking through its large windows will make you feel like you’re up in a tree canopy. But there’s plenty of beauty to see inside as well thanks to rustic touches.
This extraordinary Airbnb in Dallas is able to sleep up to four people, with a king and queen bed in a bedroom each. Ultimately, you should find there’s plenty of space for guests, thanks to the large living room and peaceful front patio. You won’t have any problems cooking either with the fully-equipped kitchen, complete with an oven and dishwasher. Other nice touches include laundry facilities, Wi-Fi, and even an indoor fireplace.
Off-Grid Adobe Dome Near Big Bend
This is probably the coolest Airbnb in Texas for people looking to go off the grid. Staying here in the Chihuahuan desert outside the Terlingua Ghost Town, you really are in the middle of nowhere. That said, it’s not far from Big Bend National Park, and you’ll find the odd grocery store and restaurant in the area.
This earthen dome is not for everyone, as you won’t find many creature comforts out here. The home runs off solar power, so it can keep the refrigerator running and your phone charged but not much else. This means you won’t find amenities like TV or air conditioning, though there is Wi-Fi, and you can easily cook with the propane stove and oven.
Two people can comfortably sleep in the bed, while a third guest can sleep on the couch in the cozy living space. For entertainment, you’ll have the incredible landscape and brilliant night sky, thanks to a local dark-sky ordinance.
Cute Retro Trailer in the Country
If you don’t need lots of space, this renovated Airstream trailer is a great Texas Hill Country Airbnb. You’ll get a relaxed stay here near the lovely little town of Wimberley, with swimming holes and backcountry to explore.
Stepping inside this stationary camper, you’ll be pleased with how it makes the most of its space – to say nothing of the vintage decor. But don’t let the retro vibes fool you; it offers plenty of modern comforts, such as a queen bed for two, Wi-Fi, and a Roku TV.
There’s also a living room with a couch and desk, as well as a simple kitchen with a gas stove and fridge. Everything else you’ll find outside, including a nice patio with chairs and a hammock, a hot tub alongside the outdoor shower, and a fire pit and barbecue grill. Your pets (allowed for a fee) will also enjoy the ample outdoor space that you have all to yourself.
Luxury Austin Retreat With Heated Pool
Easily one of the best Airbnb rentals in Texas, this house is the ultimate retreat for a vacation to Austin. You couldn’t hope for a nicer part of Austin to stay in than the affluent residential neighborhood of Travis Heights. It’s only a short walk from shops, restaurants, and the riverfront, so you could even leave your car in the designated parking spot the whole time.
This Austin Airbnb Plus has plenty of room for couples to make themselves comfortable. The bedroom’s king bed with a pillow-top mattress makes sleeping here nice and easy, as does the air conditioning throughout the unit. Another way to cool off is to take a dip in the pool out on the shared patio.
The unit features a kitchenette with a minifridge, microwave, and coffee machine, letting you prepare basic meals and enjoy them at the breakfast table. There are TVs in both the bedroom and the living room, offering cable to keep you entertained – and Wi-Fi, of course.

Tiny Container Home Near Waco
Staying in a tiny house for your vacation might seem unusual, but it can be a lot of fun when done right, like this Airbnb in Texas does. The house is just north of Waco, near Cafe Homestead and Interstate 35, so it’s easy enough to get into the city from here.
Made out of an old shipping container, this tiny home makes incredibly clever use of the space available. You won’t believe how much superhost Kenneth has managed to fit into the home without making it feel cluttered. For instance, the queen-size bed folds down over the sofa when you want to sleep and back into the wall for the daytime.
Further back is a dining bar opposite the kitchen. There you have an induction cooktop, a fridge, a microwave, and a surprising amount of counter space for preparing meals. At the very back is the bathroom with a full-size shower, and the stairs outside lead to a rooftop deck where you can unwind. Adding in the air conditioning, Wi-Fi, and smart TV, you really have everything you could need.
Luxury Farm Cabin Near Fredericksburg
With a bright interior and a blend of modern and rustic design, this is a gorgeous option for an Airbnb in Fredericksburg, Texas. It’s technically a few miles outside the city, but a quick drive will get you downtown, and it still provides the peace of the Texas Hill Country.

You can snuggle up in the living room and gaze out the large windows to the wilderness outside, or sit out on the deck and enjoy the view of the nearby creek. If you wander down to the creek and look up at the cabin, you’ll see exactly why superhost Jacob refers to it as a “treehouse.”
Remote Treehouse Cabin With Countryside Views
If you plan on renting a cabin in Texas, you won’t want to miss out on this gorgeous treehouse. The small city of Glen Rose is the only civilization in this rural part of the Texas Hill Country, and 50 acres of private land surround the cabin for you to explore, so you won’t have to see anyone if you don’t want to.
Even just reaching this sky-high cabin is an experience. You have to climb stairs and then cross a cable bridge to get to its second floor. This means you’ll have superb views across the countryside, best enjoyed from the cozy balcony with a cup of coffee.
With just one bedroom and a queen bed, the cabin can only sleep two guests. The kitchenette provides a fridge and a microwave, as well as a few snacks from superhost Yvan. While the treehouse does have electricity and air conditioning, there is no TV or Wi-Fi, so plan ahead for entertainment.
Modern Tiny Cabin on a Farm Near Austin
Another cabin for rent in Texas is this gorgeous tiny house. Located west of Austin between the communities of Dripping Springs and Bee Cave, it has a nice collection of places within easy driving distance, including a winery, a couple breweries, and several good restaurants.

Converted Mining Ruin in Ghost Town
We all want to escape to the country sometimes, which is why it’s so great that homes like this exist on Airbnb. You’ll have privacy but not complete isolation here in the ghost town of Terlingua, with a coffee shop, a restaurant, and multiple bars just a few blocks away. Beyond town, you can easily drive to Big Bend National Park and Big Bend Ranch State Park.
This simple stone cabin has been converted from an old mining ruin and feels undeniably authentic. The vintage interior provides all the essentials for a desert getaway, including a full kitchen with a stove, oven, and fridge. Given its size and lone double bed, though, it fits just two guests.
Emphasizing a simpler way of life, the cabin has an external bathroom and no modern distractions like Wi-Fi or TV. You’ll just have to enjoy the view from the spacious porch, or snuggle up in the little loft and read a book.
Cabin Sanctuary for Outdoor Enthusiasts
Few cabins in Texas Hill Country are as full of character as this one. Up the road from the town of Wimberley and surrounded by wilderness, it’s the perfect base for you to explore and embrace the outdoors. It’s even near a river that’s great for tubes and kayaks when flowing, and you can hike along the riverbed when it’s dry.
Older families and groups of up to four people will find the cabin quite comfortable, especially with the spacious living room. It makes the most of its outdoor space with a huge porch, a fire pit, and an open-air shower, though you also have a welcoming clawfoot tub in the indoor bathroom.

This beautiful log cabin provides everything you need for a cozy getaway. The queen-size canopy bed and pleasant sitting area are both welcomingly close to the wood-burning stove. There’s also a nice little kitchenette with a stove, oven, microwave, and fridge. Superhosts Jennifer and Gregory go the extra mile by leaving you fresh eggs and local organic coffee.

Private Glamping Yurt With Hot Tub
One of the more unusual Texas Airbnbs is this authentic Mongolian yurt. It’s just outside Wimberley, so you can spend your days exploring the colorful town’s shops or taking a dip in the local swimming holes.
Since the yurt is essentially one large room with a king bed, it’s best for solo travelers and couples seeking a quirky place to stay. To supplement its minimal indoor space, the yurt provides several outdoor facilities, including a rooftop deck, a hot tub, and an open-air kitchen and bathroom. Even when you’re using these outdoor spaces, the setup gives you complete privacy from the property’s other yurts.
