Picture-Perfect Airbnb Stays for Your Next Travel

August 18, 2021

The joy and excitement of booking an Airbnb accommodation! But that would be put on a backseat for now because of the pandemic.

To pay homage to World Photography Day this 19 August, Airbnb has rounded up a list of the most picturesque Airbnb Stays for a perfect staycation to create and capture beautiful memories with your loved ones.

For Siargao-based photographer Oli Bayer and his wife Elaine Bayer, capturing travel photos is a great way to capture precious family moments, and fill their house with their favourite memories together. “Traveling as a family is important for us because we get to share new experiences together – even if it’s just a staycation in the same town or country,” says Oli. “With our two year old daughter, everything happens so fast and becomes a blur even without realizing it, so it’s really nice to have photos to look back on about the wonderful experiences we shared as a
family.” Oli, Elaine and their family enjoying a precious weekend getaway at the Native Modern Villa in Siargao.

Native Modern Villa in Siargao

Inspired by Filipino-Balinese elements and tucked deep in the jungles of General Luna, Villa Tulua conserves much of the area’s natural aesthetic. The villa offers the perfect luxurious getaway for families to enjoy island life, and comes fully furnished with its very own private pool and three bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms.

Beachside Glamping Tents in Palawan

Located just a few meters from El Nido’s world-famous white sand beach, these glamping tents provide guests with easy access to clear blue waters and jewel-hued sunsets – perfect for a mini family photoshoot. The entire property boasts gorgeous landscaping of over 300 trees and 3,000 small shrubs, and each tent is fitted with state-of-the-art furnishings and plush beds. If you’re lucky, your tent may even come with its own private pool!

Balay Talahib in Tanay

Families can enjoy taking creative shots while enjoying a peaceful farm life at Balay Talahib, an exclusive rest house nestled in the midst of mountains and a river. The farm is solar-powered and as the name suggests, the main house is predominantly covered with talahib or wild sugarcane – from its doors, walls and ceilings. Explore the many unique antiques around the house, including the long wooden family table often found in lola’s house.

Spanish Villa in Bohol

Casa Santa Barbara is a six-bedroom Spanish-style villa made with authentic clay roof tiles and Machuca tiles. Overlooking the sea, the villa offers a glimmering infinity pool and spa, and a small private beach just a few steps away. It can comfortably house large families – making it a perfect location for family reunions and endless group photos.

I really love vintage houses with spiral staircase that gives a feel of romance and nostalgia. 

Family Residential in Tanay

The Blue Cottage is a spacious, rustic European country-style home overlooking Taal Lake, ideal for an intimate weekend retreat with family and friends. For those who love documenting their trips for the ‘gram, make sure to pack some fashionable outfits as every little corner makes for a perfect photo opportunity – from the cottage’s porch and garden view deck to its vintage-style kitchen.
