The Most Romantic Airbnbs For A Much-Needed Couples Getaway

Elizabeth Gulino
·6 min read

Quarantining with a romantic partner is pretty great sometimes, but it's natural to start feeling a little cooped up at some point. And when that happens, the best antidote is to take a road trip (the safest way to travel) to a romantic Airbnb.

Pack all of the essentials — face masks, hand sanitizer, and disinfectant wipes. And keep in mind that wherever you go, you'll want to aim to uphold the CDC's coronavirus restrictions, which currently still recommend measures such as social distancing. Also smart: Keep tabs on a coronavirus-tracking map, and proceed with caution. If cases have been on the uptick in your area, or the area you're traveling to, follow local guidances — even if that means opting to stay home and stay indoors for a little longer.

If you can take a trip with JUST your significant other come Valentine's Day, it won't matter whether you default to your usual quarantine routine (hello, Netflix) or do something totally new-to-you-two — the setting will make everything feel fresh. Ahead, cutesy, adorable, tiny, and large Airbnb's in a variety of locations worth driving to.
