Work From Paradise: Take A Look At These 7 Airbnbs Best For Working Remote
Work or vacation? The sprawling views will make you forget.
After more than a year of doing work from the comfort of our own homes, the urge to go someplace else has frankly never been stronger. Luckily, Airbnb houses thousands of listings to scroll through, given the platform’s support to the remote working community since the pandemic started.
We took it upon ourselves to scour the site for WFH hotspots, and what did we find? Jawdropping panoramic views, workspaces in the form of a hammock, and so much more! Between an exhausting news cycle and ongoing woes of the pandemic, doesn’t the thought of a lil’ change of work scenery sound just about perfect right now?
If you’re looking for a quick shift or perhaps a more extended stay, check out our top picks of the best Airbnbs for remote workers below! Seamless internet connectivity and hygiene protocols are, of course, a given.

The unit is nestled next to Makati CBD, which means you have access to a plethora of food and shopping options. Should you want to take pauses, access to the pool area comes with a minimal price tag of only 150 pesos per head!
