Luckily for you, I’ve narrowed down the options to 8 of the best Airbnbs in Miami for you to choose from. Now, you can simply decide which of the below vacation rentals best suits your budget and style of travel and go with that!
8 Cool Airbnbs in Miami for an Amazing Vacation
Miami is a massive city and choosing which area to stay in is a challenge. Each area of Miami is unique and has so many fun things to do.
Here is a map of all of the available Airbnbs in Miami so you can get a better idea of all of your accommodation options.
1. Inviting, Cozy Studio
This inviting, cozy studio has arguably one of the best locations out of all of the Airbnbs in Miami. Situated halfway between downtown Miami and Little Havana, you can get the best of both worlds!
You can catch a basketball game at the American Airlines Arena, admire the art at the Perez Art Museum Miami, and then salsa dance the night away in Little Havana.
On top of that, this studio isn’t far from the NE 15th Street bridge that takes you directly from downtown Miami to the sandy shores of South Beach. Basically, all of the best Miami attractions are within a short fifteen-minute drive.
As for the studio itself, it has everything you need within a nice, cozy setting. You can wake up on the comfortable bed to natural light streaming through the windows, whip up an easy breakfast in the kitchenette, and then head out for your day of adventures!
And when you return to your home away from home, you can watch a movie on the smart TV or simply rest up for another day of excitement.
Guest Review: This is a perfect home base for exploring Miami! It has everything you need and was very clean and comfortable. Robert was also super kind and understanding when we accidentally locked ourselves out before leaving. I definitely recommend staying here if you are in the area.
2. Adorable Miami Loft Near Little Havana
With flamingo and pineapple wall art and a shaded blue terrace with a sparkling blue pool, this adorable loft completely embraces the fun, beachy vibe of Miami.
And while the fun vibe might be what initially draws you to this loft, the well-equipped rooms are what will get you to actually get you to book it for your Miami getaway.
You can brew your morning cup of coffee using the Keurig, watch a movie while curled up on the gray futon in the living room and get some much-needed rest in the plush queen bed.
As an added bonus, this adorable loft is just a few blocks from the excitement of Little Havana. While there, you can play dominos with the locals, roll a couple of Cuban cigars, try the funky flavors of Azucar Ice Cream Company, and experience Viernes Culturales (Cultural Fridays).
Guest Review: Very cute, quaint place. Clean and well taken care of. Close enough to the nightlife and beach to have fun, but far enough to be out of the hustle and bustle.
3. Immaculate Beachfront Apartment
One of the things that Miami is most known for is the beach. As a matter of fact, when many people visit Miami, they try to spend as many hours on the sandy shores as possible.
If this sounds like something you’d want to do, this immaculate beachfront apartment may be one of the most perfect Airbnbs in Miami for you!
While staying at this apartment, you’ll be able to stay at the beach from sunrise until sunset, thanks to its prime location. And not only will you be just an elevator ride away from the white sand of Miami Beach, but you’ll also be able to see the beautiful blue Atlantic Ocean from every single part of this apartment.
You can wake up in the plush king bed, read a book on the comfortable living room couch, and or eat a meal at the pristine dining table – all while staring at these breathtaking ocean views. As a matter of fact, the water is so clear from this 14th-floor apartment that you can sometimes even see manatees, stingrays, and dolphins from your window!
Last but not least, you’ll also have access to the apartment complex’s shared tennis court, gym, and pool.
Guest Review: This place is truly an oasis in Miami Beach. It’s very relaxing and has everything you need. The small touches in terms of amenities make this a wonder unit. The view of the ocean is really special. The hosts are wonderful as well. Highly recommended and will be back soon.
4. Luxurious Modern Home
If you’re hoping to splurge during your trip to Miami, this luxurious modern home is a fabulous option. And with room for fourteen guests, you can invite your extended family or all of your friends with you on your lavish Miami getaway!
This house boasts sleek modern décor, a beautiful blue pool, a kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and a lovely pool table. In other words, everything in the house is high-end, and you’ll get to experience a life of luxury – at least for a little while.
And if you happen to be an animal lover, this vacation rental is in the best location possible! It’s situated right between Zoo Miami and the Zoological Wildlife Foundation Miami, so you can say hello to hundreds of awesome animals during your trip. And if animals aren’t your thing, you can also visit the Gold Coast Railroad Museum or stop by the one-of-a-kind Coral Castle.
Guest Review: This house was fantastic. Spacious and comfortable. We absolutely loved the pool. The host is amazing. She replies very quickly, is flexible, and accommodating. I would recommend this place. Lots of parking. Gorgeous backyard and pool.
5. Adorable Cottage Near Little Havana
This adorable little blue and white guesthouse seems rather unassuming at first, but it’s filled with so much charming character. With pop art on the walls, twinkle lights over the outdoor dining table, and a wall made of terracotta pots, you’d be hard-pressed to find an Airbnb in Miami quite like this one.
The inside of the little guesthouse is filled with everything you need, including a comfy double bed, a small dining area, a large kitchen, and loads of board games.
But most of the fun happens outside of the house. You can take a dip in the private pool, read a book in the swinging hammock, and even take the spiral staircase up to the roof for a little stargazing.
Then, you can take the two provided bikes out to explore the nearby area of Little Havana. You can salsa at Hoy Como Ayer, take a Little Havana food tour, and admire the pieces at the Vizcaya Museum & Gardens.
Guest Review: We absolutely LOVED everything about this Airbnb! It was clean and equipped with all necessities plus some extras we weren’t expecting! We will DEFINITELY be back! The host was prompt with answering any questions and even dropped off some freshly baked pastries with a thank you card our last day! It is within walking distance of a grocery store, pharmacy, liquor store, and some delicious restaurants!
6. Mid-Century Modern Bungalow
This mid-century modern bungalow boasts bright colors and bold patterns, both of which make it particularly inviting. As a matter of fact, this bungalow was featured in a 2019 Travel + Leisure article detailing the top ten most wish-listed Airbnbs in Miami! Apparently, I’m not the only one who wants to stay here.
The inside of this small bungalow includes a double bed, a small kitchen, and a productive office area. But, like the previous Airbnb, all of the fun happens outside. You can soak up some Vitamin D on the sun loungers, cool off in the turquoise pool, or take a nap in the swaying hammock.
This vacation home is situated in the MiMo district, which gives you easy access to both Miami and Miami Beach. You’ll find many restaurants, hotels, bars, shops, and galleries in the area.
Guest Review: If you are looking for the perfect place to stay in the Miami area, this is the spot!! Everything you need and more with a wonderful host. Great neighborhood near everything and convenient to the airport, highway etc. Couldn’t be happier with our stay and you won’t find a better host than Michael!!
7. Contemporary Apartment in Downtown Miami
This contemporary apartment in downtown Miami is filled with all the coolest amenities. You can swim a few laps in the rooftop pool, take in the views while working out in the state-of-the-art gym, relax at the warm sauna, get pampered at the lovely spa, and have loads of fun in the exciting game room.
And the apartment itself isn’t anything to balk at either, especially considering its sleek modern décor. You can prepare a meal in the well-equipped kitchen, play a few card games in the welcoming living room, and fall asleep in the plush queen bed.
This fantastic apartment is located in the heart of downtown Miami. This means that you’ll be near some of the best restaurants, shops, bars, parks, and entertainment venues in town. A few local recommendations include Bayfront Park, Zuma, Soya e Pomodoro, Pawn Broker, and Olympia Theater.

8. Star Island 84’ Yacht
If you’re looking for an ultra-luxurious stay in Miami, this is the place for you! This is one of the most unique Airbnbs in Miami.
With so much of Miami revolving around the water, it only makes sense to consider staying on the water as well. The Star Island 84’ yacht is a fantastic option.
You’ll feel like a millionaire while staying on this luxurious yacht. You can dine out on the sunny deck, soak up the sun and the views on the topmost deck, or even test your jet skiing skills.
And the yacht isn’t just for show – you can hire the crew to take you on a tour of the Miami coastline as well! Get a glimpse of South Beach, the Venetian Islands, Key Biscayne, and so much more.
As its name implies, the Star Island 84’ yacht is docked at Star Island. This means that you won’t be far from many of the best Miami Beach attractions, including South Beach and the Art Deco Historic District.
Guest Review: The host responds fast and gives very vivid directions. He is very professional and nice. The yacht was absolutely amazing, very clean, comfortable and much more than my guest and I expected. We really enjoyed ourselves and will recommend the experience to others.
