Tropical Treehouse (Big Island)
Maybe our 9-year-old selves had it right: All you really need for a happy existence is a little backyard treehouse. You can test that fantasy in this real-life (adult-size) Airbnb rental in the rainforest of the Big Island. (You even enter the dwelling through a trap door!) Built by minimalism enthusiast Kristie Wolfe and her mother, this dreamy tropical treehouse resides 15 feet up in the canopy of local flora and features a wraparound lanai (with, yes, 360-degree jungle views).
