The Best Airbnbs to Book for Your Bachelorette Party
Destination bachelorette parties are becoming more and more common—and for good reason. There's something so special about prefacing your wedding day with a celebratory trip that includes your nearest and dearest. When you think about it, transforming your bachelorette party into a trip ultimately bookends your wedding day with travel. First, you'll venture off with your sisters and best friends—all of the women that have defined your life thus far. Following the big day, you'll jet away with your newly-minted spouse for the honeymoon. There's just so much to look forward to.
Before you get carried away with planning the latter trip (it's so easy to get caught up in making that honeymoon itinerary!), let's focus on the former. After you decide on a destination bachelorette party location, you and your crew will have to settle on a place to stay.While there's nothing wrong with booking a hotel and flight deal, we think you might want to stop and consider the benefits of celebrating with your family and friends in an Airbnb. The hotel alternative is an easy way to experience the locale in a more organic way—oftentimes, with all of the amenities offered at a more formal resort or lodge. Even better? Since a bachelorette party is often comprised of a larger group, it makes the most sense, budget-wise, to stay under one roof. This also allows for infinitely more fun, since you won't have to retire to your respective hotel rooms at the end of an evening out on the town.
To help you jumpstart the planning process, the team at Airbnb helped us round up the prettiest, most bachelorette party-worthy rentals all around the globe. Whether you celebrate your upcoming nuptials in Greece or the U.K., we (and Airbnb!) have you covered.
