These are the 10 best vacation home rentals in the United States, according to Vrbo

From family reunions to bachelor parties and girls’ weekends, 2022 is practically begging you to get out there and spend time with the ones you love. And when you get the gang together, a series of hotel rooms won’t be enough. You’ll need a base with room for everyone, plus all the bells and whistles necessary to make a gathering truly memorable – from a stellar location to an infinity pool and outdoor seating.

Vrbo scoured over two million listings to curate a top 10 list that showcases the best of the best vacation homes in 2022. These spectacular vacation rentals not only have the space to house everyone, but are in places that will amaze the most jaded of us – from mountain retreats in Telluride, Colorado to a beachfront home on one of Florida’s most beautiful beaches.

To make the list, rentals had to be entire, private homes and meet a combination of criteria – which included incredible customer reviews, five-star ratings and amenities for large groups. Vrbo also took location into account, so you won’t be stuck in the middle of nowhere. These homes are all located in popular vacation destinations — think: Hilton Head, Hawaii, and Big Sky — and cater to different price points.
