In January, Airbnb released a list of the most desirable new global listings of 2023.
Each of the 13 listings earned “Most Wanted List” status after only being on the list for 10 weeks, and the site may have gotten some help from several new ways to rank listings—eg. Trending and “top of the world.” Introduced by Airbnb. That new feature in November 2022.
The 13 locations span six countries and four continents, and range from a tiny house to a guesthouse on a working family farm.
