Do you like that feeling on top of the world?

Well, now you can rent vacation properties that make you feel just that – plus, it’s easier than ever to find them.

Airbnb is well known for having perhaps the widest range of vacation homes – from treehouses and caravans to villas and cottages – but it can be difficult to browse through all the options.

This is where filters come in handy. And, to make life even easier, Airbnb has added a whole new selection of niches so you can find that property that ticks all the boxes.

So even if you’re looking for a chalet in the mountains with a hot tub and waterslide, now you can look for exactly that.

Users can now narrow their search with filters such as brand new listings, trending homes, disability-friendly properties, and rentals with a play element, such as a tennis court or games room.

You can even specifically search for hanoks, which are traditional Korean houses made with natural materials. There isn’t much more of a niche than that.

But another new feature will have you reaching new heights in no time.

The “top of the world” category shows you homes that are at least 10,000 feet above sea level.

We’ve rounded up some of our top picks below, sure to enhance your getaway.
