Best Airbnbs Short Stays in Victoria | 2022

At a time when remote working is all the rage, it can be easy to get caught up in the noble urge to work from faraway tropical islands, introduce yourself to locals as a digital nomad, and post heavily on the gram. As tempting as it may be, that’s a lot. If there’s a silver lining to the pandemic, it’s that we can now choose where we work, the environments we live in, and how we cut out the 8-9 hours every day.

That’s where Airbnb’s new feature, Short Stays, comes in; if you’re tired of your own four walls (aren’t we all), you can opt for a getaway by the sea, the tree side and even the mountain side all while being a short drive away from the headquarters. If you feel like changing things up for a week, a month or more, check out some of the best short breaks in Victoria:
