15 Posh Miami Rentals to Book for Art Basel

Let these luxury crash pads inspire lodging lust.

By Elizabeth Seward

Art Basel will transform Miami into a hotbed of creativity this week, turning the entire city into one big pop-up art gallery. From the opening receptions and lectures to the guided tours and elite-only parties, December is the “It” time to be in Miami. But no matter when you visit, let these fabulous — and tastefully artistic — Airbnb accommodations provide lodging inspiration.

1. New York-Style Loft

This New York-style loft space goes heavy on the motif of a white horse, adding some magic to the airy rental. Gray tones and silver accents bring a wintery feel to this plush loft, making it a nice pairing to an otherwise decidedly non-wintery Miami. 

2. Views for Days

If Miami seems like paradise to you, this expansive spot will be well suited for your stay. Take in the waterfront views from the comfort of the pool and then go back inside and enjoy the artful décor.

3. Pristine Pool

Miami’s teal waters are part of the reason why snowbirds to flock toward the southern shores each year. And those teal waters are a strong feature in this property — blue-green water is visible through the house windows, both naturally occurring and in the pristine rectangular pool.

4. Mediterranean Manse

This Mediterranean-style mansion is cool and classy. It features a pool, a chef’s kitchen, and a great view. And for snuggling after hours, the master bath has a fireplace.

5. Greek Palace

Love the idea of staying in a marbled Greek-inspired palace, replete with a modern pool, hot tub, and ornate winding staircase? Then this is the Airbnb listing of your dreams. (And if you like the sound of those amenities, just wait until you click through the rest of the photos.)

6. Infinity Pools

Infinity pools with infinitely awesome scenic views, palm trees galore, lush greenery, arched doorways, brick walls, and even a big flamingo pool float should all help paint a picture of this perfect spot for a retreat

7. Organic Accents

Floor-to-ceiling windows give this two-bedroom apartment lots of natural light in a nature-inspired space. Tastefully appointed earth tones and wooden accents keep this apartment’s décor serene, as does the view of the ocean.

8. Party Penthouse

If you wouldn’t mind a game of pool on a rooftop with an ocean view, this penthouse will scratch that fancy-loving itch... alongside so many other indulgences. A perfectly colorful bathroom, chic white throughout, and pops of blue accents make this waterside pad delicious. 

9. Selfie Paradise

Natural wood tones and a surreal view of the ocean on the horizon give this apartment its dreamy appeal. It’s beachy, open, comfortable, modern, and, you guessed it: perfect!

10. Castle Crash Pad

This mansion takes luxury to a new level. Marble floors, brick walls, a castle-like appearance, well-lit artwork on display, a spiral staircase, indoor balconies, a chic pool, and many more fine details give this towering home its royalty-worthy charm. 

11. Minimalist Modern

Minimalistic modernity is a theme throughout this Miami mansion. Thoroughly light, bright, and sparse, this big space is ready to absorb whatever you bring to it. 

12. Art Appreciation

The Miami skyline is the winning view at this pillared and sprawling abode. Soak in the hot tub or pool while watching the twinkling city lights at night and then go back inside to take in some memorable pieces of artwork as you relax. 

13. Indoor-Outdoor Flow

Dubbed the Orchid House, this luxurious crib brings the outside in with lively botanic décor. An indoor pool, a wooden spiral staircase, and a fairytale-esque orchid-like corridor give this rental its special beauty. 

14. Multiple Levels

This four-story standalone South Beach building’s townhouse is dressed in white and easy on the eyes. An expansive patio, high-rise view, and dozens of large windows throughout give this place its pizazz. And it gets bonus points for the deep pool with the great view.  

15. White House


Villa Blanca is what its name suggests: a sprawling estate decked in white from head to toe. Giant chandeliers and pop art installations help this mansion’s décor to marry the old with the new. The Renaissance-era inspired metal cabinetry in the kitchen is a detail not to be forgotten, but nothing in this massive den of luxury is forgettable.
