Airbnbs Wes Anderson Fans Will Love


Finding a hotel or rental house usually depends on your destination. You are heading towards San Francisco visiting friends, then you are looking for a hotel in the area. The road less traveled – outside of Disney World or Las Vegas – is to find a ridiculously awesome place to stay and make it the destination.

Airbnb has shared a collection of homes that will make fans of the brightly colored world of Wes Anderson swoon. Homes are aesthetic destinations that could be your own Grand hotel in Budapest. Whether it’s the ambiance of the house or, sometimes, literally having a Wes Anderson-themed house, these house ages extravagantly decorated for movies like The Darjeeling Limited won’t make you say, “Well, I just want to die.”


Moonrise Kingdom

Location: Vesterøy, Østfold, Norway

This little cottage on a private island is surprisingly spacious inside. It evokes the tiny dwellings of Captain Sharp (Bruce Willis) or Scoutmaster Ward (Edward Norton) in Moonrise Kingdom. So, you know, work your semaphore.


Moonrise Kingdom / The Royal Tenenbaums

Location: Prince Edward Island, Ontario, Canada

This rental is affectionately called “Mr. Anderson’s House”, with each room themed after one of his films. From a portrait of Steve Zissou in the living room to a Margot Tenenbaum-style fur coat on a mannequin, the host sticks to the description of the house, which begins with “I’ve always wanted to be a Tenenbaum.” Among other artifacts, the house features portraits of Mordecai and Suzy de moonrise kings (Kara Hayward) and a Richie Tenenbaum-style tennis racket mounted in a hallway.


The Royal Tenenbaums

Location: Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Here you rent a room called “Wes Anderson Room” in Darling Mansion. The piece doesn’t quite look like it came out of a specific movie, but it carries Anderson’s aesthetic. In fact, most of the house does. The living room appears to be the gathering space in Eli Cash’s new home.


aquatic life

Location: Galveston, Texas, United States

The nautical-themed duplex sits near a beach in Galveston. The house will put you in a Calypso-like mood, then you can sit on the beach and search for your very own pencil ponyfish.


The Royal Tenenbaums/The Grand Budapest Hotel

Location: Champigné, Pays de la Loire, France

This private family castle is huge. It looks like an amalgam of The Grand Budapest Hotel and the inner ambience of The Royal Tenenbaums. You are definitely living in this rental.


The Grand Budapest Hotel/Hotel Chevalier

Location:Tiptree, Essex, UK

This wild house, as pink on the outside as it is on the inside, has the saturated color palette of Anderson’s “Hotel Chevalier” short, a prologue to Darjeeling Limited. Either way, the room pictured above might be the least intense of many rooms in the house.


The Darjeeling Limited

Location: Lauriston, Victoria, Australia

The interior looks pretty much like any Anderson movie, but this little house in Australia is inside a train carriage. So if you’ve always wanted to settle on the train since The Darjeeling Limited and never get out, here’s your chance. (However, you will eventually have to leave.)


Moonrise Kingdom

Location: Helston, Cornwall, UK

This Unique Cornwall Home Looks Like A Stunningly Ornate Camp Straight Out Of Moonrise Kingdom. You can see the exterior of the house in the picture at the top of the listing. It is a strange and striking place.

Now that the service is launched split paymentsit should be even easier to convince friends to go to Toronto because there’s a themed room you want to stay in. Or maybe a Game of Thrones Themed Holidays it’s more your thing. Anyway, weird trip.
