Totally over beige hotel room walls? Us, too. From bright blues to vibrant pinks, we’ve scoured the U.S. to find the most eye-catching and unique rentals.

Whether you’re looking for a cozy cabin or a bohemian bungalow, there’s a colorful and cool Airbnb out there with your name on it.
Color has the power to change our whole mood. And while that’s a great reason to seek out our faves, it doesn’t hurt that our kiddos seem to be even more into bold hues. It’s much easier to wrangle the family and convince them to wrap up a day of vacation fun if you’re heading back to a bright and beautiful place to wind down. So all across the U.S., these bold bed and breakfasts are just waiting to welcome your crew. Check out some seriously cool Airbnbs below.
