How to Find an Airbnb with a View: Using Airbnb’s View Search Feature
To find an Airbnb with a view, you need to select the “amazing view” option before beginning your search for a rental property. Then, using the interactive map, find the location you wish to visit and see what properties are available. Once you have your location selected, you can view properties either on the map or in a list format.
Step-By-Step Instructions to Use Airbnb’s View Filter
If an amazing view is a non-negotiable for your next Airbnb vacation, follow these steps to find Airbnbs with beautiful views in your travel destination.
Step 1: Find and Select “Amazing Views”
Instead of typical filters, Airbnb now as frequently searched property features listed at the top of their webpage. Some of these features include amazing pools, treehouses, lakefront, designs, and of course, amazing views.
Select amazing views to begin your search.
Step 2: Find Your Travel Destination
Most of the time, when you select “amazing views” Airbnb will populate a list of properties in your area. You will need to use the map feature to pick the location of your travel destination. Click “show map” to get to the interactive property map.
Now, you will be able to move the map to where you want to travel. You can zoom in and out, and the map will update with properties that feature amazing views.
Step 3: Choose Your Dates and Occupancy
Once you have your map positioned over the area you want to stay in, you need to choose dates and occupancy to find Airbnb properties that suit your needs. You can keep the “where” drop-down option to “map area” so you don’t lose your selected location.
After you entered this information, you can view properties on the map or select the list option.
Step 4: Pick Your Dream Airbnb with Your Favorite View
If you choose the list option to view properties, you will enjoy a selection of properties with images showing off their showstopping views. Click the individual property for more photos and information and when you found the right place, you can book your rental.
Tips for Finding an Airbnb with a View
If a beautiful view is important to you, take your time when you search for properties. You will want to look at all the photos and most importantly, read other guest’s reviews. Reviews can help you decide the best time of year to visit the property or provide recommendations for the best vantage point for a perfect sunset.
When in doubt, don’t hesitate to reach out to the property host. They can provide you with any information you need and answer all your questions about the property.

Airbnb Filters Not Showing: How to Find Airbnb Filters?
Airbnb has recently updated its website. Some filters and search options previously available are no longer available or have changed locations. The two places to find search filters are on the top of the home page, or at the top of your property list once you conduct a search.
Some filter options that you can use to search include:
- Price range
- Type of place
- Rooms and beds
- Booking options
- Host language
Airbnb also has more specific search options for frequently searched features like:
- Amazing pools
- Tiny homes
- Iconic cities
Although the website has changed a bit, you still have access to all filters and search features. One filter that people often have trouble locating is the “pet-friendly” filter. If you’re traveling with a furry companion, make sure you know HOW TO FILTER FOR A PET-FRIENDLY AIRBNB.
How Do I Find Rare Finds on Airbnb? Here’s How to Find Cool Airbnb Properties for Your Vacation
Airbnb considers a property a “rare find” if the property is frequently booked and usually doesn’t have any available dates. You can’t search specifically for a “rare find” but if a frequently booked property is available in your date range and search results, Airbnb will let you know. You will see a small banner on the listing that says, “rare find.” This lets you know that the property you are viewing is in high demand and is probably a great option for your vacation.
