While everyone knows that traveling with a toddler is more of a “trip” than a “vacation,” there are things you can do to make it more enjoyable for all parties. Staying in an Airbnb is often a better option than a hotel when vacationing with little ones, as you’ll have a dedicated room for your toddler to nap and a place for parents to hang out after toddler bedtime.

These Airbnbs go all-out on toddler fun, offering everything from splash pads to themed rooms that toddlers will love. There’s even a few that have farm animals you can visit!

The Playhouse Retreat | Scottsdale, AZ


Known as “The Playhouse Retreat,” this rental that sleeps 13 has everything your family needs under one roof, from pack n’ plays to strollers to car seats. The backyard features a fenced-in swimming pool, an awesome kids’ play area with 14 playhouses that toddlers will love, and tons of mini bikes to ride on the kid-sized streets. There’s even a splash pad that’s perfect for little ones who want to cool off from the Arizona heat.

The Disneyland Dream | Orange, CA

Airbnb for toddlers near Disneyland

If you are planning a Disneyland vacation with your little one, you’ll want to check out this Disney-themed rental that sleeps up to 9 guests. When your toddler sees the swingset and multiple playhouses in the backyard, you might not need to spring for that extra day at the park. Each of the home’s four bedrooms embodies a different part of Disneyland with an “It’s a Small World” room that has the iconic Small World facade painted on one wall and odes to the ride scattered throughout (it also has two bunk beds and a trundle so the room can fit a small world of its own!). There’s also an arcade and theater room that will keep older kids busy for hours.

Hobbit House | Sanger, CA


If your family vacation plans include visiting Yosemite or Sequoia National Park, this hobbit house is a fun option. You’ll have plenty of room for the whole family, including a large bathtub for bathing squirmy toddlers. The property is just 1.5 hours from both parks, so you can spend your days communing with nature and taking oh-so-cute pics of your kid with giant trees.

Train Caboose | Waynesville, NC

Airbnb train caboose

Just 10 miles from the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, this 1926 wooden train caboose has been transformed into one of the most unique vacation destinations in the area. This bright red storybook caboose was part of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway. The caboose cottage itself is located on a private 20-acre residential farm. It sits atop authentic 1920s railroad tracks and joins with the incredible bath house, the Depot.

White Lotus Farm | Port Ludlow, WA

Airbnb farmstay for toddlers

Seventy acres of serenity is what you’ll find at White Lotus Farm & Inn, just over the Hood Canal Bridge. Established in 2017 by owners Niall and Natalie, farm animals are the big draw for kids here. They’ll make fast friends with the sheep, goats, pigs, chickens, ducks, and Cue, the farm llama. When it comes to navigating the space, look to Niall, who gives tours and explains the farm’s “beyond organic” practices. There’s a good chance he’ll also invite the kids to help feed the animals and look for eggs.

Kintz Farm | South Bend, IN

Airbnb for toddlers

This cozy home located near Notre Dame University is a fun option for families looking to get away and relax. The property is within driving distance of Indiana Dunes State Park, or you can walk a bit down the driveway to visit the creek, where you might see some ducks frolicking in the water. When your toddler gets extra dirty playing outside, you can easily do a load of laundry. The property owners can arrange grocery delivery for you to make things even easier.

Canton Cabin | Canton, NC
