From entire islands and off-grid cottages to castles and treehouses, here are some of Airbnb's most wish-listed rentals by country.

Before Airbnb, options for travel accommodations looked a lot different. Now, there are more than two million listings from 190 countries, and the variety of places to stay is truly jaw-dropping. We love it for the sharing economy aspect, as well as being able to break away from the canned vacation experience. There's the Hilton, or there's the treehouse where the host will cook a traditional dinner while you admire the moonlit lake and fireflies...

Recently, the company mapped out the most wish-listed rentals by country. If you have a few hours and want to slide down the rabbit hole that is that map, go ahead. But for a condensed version, we've selected some highlights; 15 of which you can see on the following pages. Bon voyage!

Ubatuba, Brazil: House with a View in Praia do Felix

My goodness, a tour of the photos for this house makes it clear why it is the most wish-listed rental in Brazil. This house of wood and glass with fabulous views of the sea is absolutely beautiful. Three hundred meters from the beach, the house has four bedrooms and comfortably sleeps eight people. Visit the listing and see for yourself; wish-listing resistance is futile!

House with a View in Praia do Felix: Accommodates 8, $313 per night.
