Mindy Kaling Curated an Airbnb Wishlist for Moms & We Are Booking Right Now

It’s been a year and then some, and you have very likely spent most of that time at home, probably hunched over a computer—yours or your kids. This is why for Mother’s Day, something that goes a little beyond the typical bouquet of flowers is in order. You know who agrees? Mindy Kaling! She put together this “Mindful Retreats by Mindy Kaling” wishlist. Scroll down to learn more of her favorite stays and experiences on Airbnb (including one our editor tried out.)


Kaling's picks are all about peace, tranquility, and the great outdoors. Whether traveling with kids in tow or solo, Mindy’s wishlist of mindful stays and experiences are immersed in nature, from a peaceful treehouse with an ocean view in Aptos, California to a mountain bliss yoga hike in Phoenix, Arizona.

“The best feeling, as a mom, is when I get to travel with my kids and show them something they have never seen before. I’m like this friendly wizard who shows them new places and experiences! I’ve been dreaming of a relaxing vacation with my kids for a while, getting them outdoors somewhere away from the noise and routine of the city,” said Mindy. “Over the last year, I’ve spent some time wanderlusting on Airbnb and planning our next escape, and I’m excited to share my very own wishlist with you all!”
