So far this summer, I’ve been dreaming of St. Barts, Ibiza, Greece, and Italy. But today, I’m all about Mexico. Specifically the far-flung island of Holbox, nestled between the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. You probably don’t have this tiny little island on your must-travel list…yet. But if all the Airbnbs on Holbox Island are like the one below, I think it’s going to pop to the top of your list. It’s certainly topping mine right now!

This bright white hacienda checks all of my dream island vacation boxes. Pitch perfect minimal design with just enough of a bohemian hand to remind that you are indeed on a tropical vacay. Local artisan works, from gourds and earthenware bowls to woven wall hangings and textiles are dotted throughout. Lighting and poufs had a bit of a Moroccan touch. The overall effect is shear heaven.

The one bedroom, one bathroom rental is surrounded by a palm grove and overlooks the classic white sand beach that is just steps away. Think the Tulum vibe without the inflated prices and half the population of New York City swarming the beach. Blech. This remote spot still sits firmly on the barely discovered list.

All I need is that hammock and the perfect margarita.

This is the type of design we wish we could live with on the regular, regardless of how impractical it is for daily life. (all white, all concrete, plaster and fragile decor – so toddler friendly, right?) Which is why it is the prefect vacation destination. I would gleefully disconnect from reality entirely in this spot. I’m this close to packing the smallest bag possible and hopping a plane right now. The toddler won’t miss me for at least a few days right??
