For a map of all these unique Florida Airbnbs, scroll to the end of this post.

The following Airbnbs are ordered by their price, from the most expensive per night to the cheapest (at the time of writing).

The Treehouse at Danville, Geneva

This treehouse is surely one of the coolest Airbnbs in Florida – it not in the entire United States.

It comprises an 18-foot yurt that is positioned at 15 feet above the ground, between two huge oaks.

Occupying a five-acre plot, the property even has an elevator (!) to transport you up to the treehouse, which is disguised as a large tree trunk. Feel free to bring that heavy suitcase even to this treehouse. 😉

The accent lighting within gives the appearance of a starlit night, while large, panoramic windows give scenic views over the surrounding oak and magnolia trees.

Modern conveniences like air-conditioning, a shower, and a proper toilet ensure a comfortable stay.

There is also a Queen bed, flatscreen TV with Amazon and Netflix, fast WiFi, full bath, and a kitchenette with a mini-fridge, microwave, and a sink.

Outdoors, there are some superb facilities to ensure a memorable stay, including a gas fireplace, BBQ, and seating on the yurt deck.

At ground level, there is a fire pit, tiki hut, and tree trunk seating. The mid-deck has a hot tub and double outdoor shower, and the upper deck a swing seat and table.

The treehouse can accommodate two adults, and the Superhost owners of one of the most unique Florida vacation rentals provide a golf cart for guests’ use during their stay.

Amazing, right?
