Things are heating up and we’re ready to head on our next adventure. Luckily, we don’t need a passport or plane ticket thanks to these 9 Airbnbs in Birmingham that’ll make you feel like you’re seeing the city through a whole new lens.

1. Birmingham Tree House

The deets:

  • 2 guests | 1 bed | 1.5 baths
  • 4.97-star rating
  • Starts at $90/night

For the laid-back person

The Birmingham Tree House is a boutique hotel in the heart of the Five Points South Historic District. This Birmingham Airbnb gives you everything you need to spark inspiration, with yoga rooms and coworking spaces. If you want to explore the neighborhood, head to Filter Coffee Parlor for your caffeine fix.

2. The Advanture Time Van

The deets:

  • 3 guests | 2 beds | 1 bath
  • 5-star rating
  • Starts at $49/night

For the adventurous person

Ever wanted to hang out in a luxury van without spending luxury money? Check out the Advanture Time Van, a luxury camper parked in the Highland neighborhood. There’s room for multiple beds and bikes. Obviously you can’t drive the van around, but since it’s located within walking distance of some excellent restaurants and shops, like Rojo and O’Henry’s, you won’t need the wheels to roll to have a good time.

3. Saturn Loft

The deets:

  • 8 guests | 8 beds | 2.5 baths
  • 5-star rating
  • Starts at $349/night

For the person who’s ready to paint the town red

Really, if you’re itching for a good night out and an overall fun experience, this loft above Saturn is your Airbnb. While you can’t host your own party in the loft, you can head downstairs to the live music venue and bar to start (and end) your night on the town.

If you want to venture a little further out than just the immediate building, head over to Big Spoon Creamery or Cookie Dough Magic for a little hangover (or anytime) treat. You can also check out Luna Latin Cuisine and Spring Street Bar and Grill for some good eats. And if you need a little break from the bustle, Avondale Park is within walking distance too.

4. The Barn

The deets:

  • 5 guests | 4 beds | 1 bath
  • 4.95-star rating
  • Starts at $145/night

For the person who loves spending time outside

With a fire pit in the courtyard, 3.5 acres of woods and fields and more, The Barn is perfect for a getaway just a bit outside the Magic City. Wildlife is plentiful, so you might find yourself with a few furry neighbors during your stay, from deer to wild turkey.

A bonus, the main house on the property has a hanging bed on the front porch-just think of the soothing naps you could take there. It’s a peaceful, relaxing retreat for anyone looking to get a little more out of doors and slow down a little.

5. “Area 54”

The deets:

  • 6 guests | 5 beds | 3 baths
  • Rating unavailable
  • Starts at $350/night

For the groovy person looking for a funky retreat

Take a trip to Area 54 at this local Airbnb with a killer rooftop patio. Located in a trendy, two story loft in Southside, this space comes with a lot of style and a sunset view of the city. When you’re done staring into the disco ball, head to the courtyard for a game of basketball and a look at stunning murals.

There’s no excuse to leave the loft, but if you get inspired by the decor, head down the block to House Plant Collective for some new plant babies and unique decor.

6. Vulcan Vista at Victorian mansion

The deets:

  • 3 guests | 2 beds | 1 bath
  • 4.64-star rating
  • Starts at $119/night

For the history buff

Who all can say that they’ve stayed in a National Historic Registered 1898 Victorian mansion? A stay at the Hassinger Daniels Mansion Bed and Breakfast will transport you through time with an A1 view of The Vulcan from the bedroom window. Each morning guests are greeted with a kaleidoscope of light through the antique windows throughout the house.

When you’re ready to explore, hop on a Veo scooter to explore the historic Five Points South neighborhood that offers foodie destinations like Bay Leaf, Iron City Pizza, Chez Fonfon and more. You’re going to need to walk it off, right? That’s the perfect excuse to explore the eclectic shop called What’s on 2nd.

7. The Doll House

The deets:

  • 6 guests | 3 beds | 1 bath
  • 4.77-star rating
  • Starts at $182/night

For the material girl (or boy) living in a material world

Ever wondered what it’s like to be Barbie for a day? The Doll House in Bessemer provides a unique experience for all ages. With pink just about everywhere you look, it’s just what we’d think Barbie’s dream house looks like.

If you’re looking to continue the fun, you can make a quick drive to Alabama Adventure & Splash Adventure where you can enjoy the best of both worlds—an amusement park and a water park in one. To eat, check out the oldest restaurant in Alabama, Bright Star, in nearby downtown Bessemer.

8. Taste of Europe

The deets:

  • 7 guests | 5 beds | 2.5 baths
  • 4.84-star rating
  • Starts at $260/night

For the inner royal

Stay in the gorgeous Highland Park neighborhood of Birmingham while feeling like you’re living in Versailles. This large house features luxe decor straight out of Marie Antoinette’s book (but minus the whole guillotine bit), with luxurious fabrics and decadent chandeliers.

Need something to do other than lounge like royalty inside this Airbnb? Check out the equally luxe offerings in Highland Park like O’Henry’s Coffee, the Virginia Samford Theatre, Rojo and more.

9. Railyard Loft

The deets:

  • 5 guests | 2 beds | 2 baths
  • 4.96-star rating
  • Starts at $209/night

For the urban explorer

Located on historic, cobblestone-d Morris Avenue, the Railyard Loft overlooks downtown Birmingham. Within walking distance of over 25 local favorite spots like Revelator Coffee, Chocolata and Paramount, you’ll never run out of fun things to do. While this newly renovated Airbnb isn’t the most adventurous on the list on its own, it’s a great launchpad for your downtown Birmingham adventures.

Plus, you won’t have to even turn on your car to do it. You can walk over to Bandit Patisserie for breakfast, head to El Barrio for lunch, catch a show at Sidewalk Cinema, and meet up with local friends at Bamboo on 2nd for dinner.
