Some Airbnb suggestions for out-of-town visitors—or even a staycation

Vintage trailer

Other amenities: The owners designed the trailer and its surroundings to have a Key West feel. They also own a pink and white 1970 VW microbus and two other vintage trailers, which are not rented but are parked nearby.

Luxury treehouse

The digs: A treehouse located on Bayou Fountain. The area offers a private respite in the wilderness, but is still an easy drive from the city. Sleep on a Tempur-Pedic mattress on the bed, cook using the Wolf stovetop range, and lounge on the handmade, artisan furniture.

Other amenities: Enjoy easy access to the bayou for canoeing, and invite friends to enjoy the gas fire pit outside.

Stay for: $295/night

Spanish Town 1930s cottage

The digs: This colonial-style bungalow has been completely renovated with energy-efficient appliances and hard wood, bamboo, slate and marble floors. Because of its location and style, the house has attracted travelers from all over, including a group of BBC reporters last year.

Other amenities: The house’s style is quintessential Louisiana. One reviewer commented: “From the swing on the front porch to the distinctive southern Louisiana decorations inside, the house looks like it should be photographed for a magazine on living in Louisiana. The beds are very comfortable and the sheets neatly pressed. The kitchen has everything you could want and more. It was a perfect home away from home.”

Stay for: $175/night
