Forget glamping — these dome vacation rentals are the most recent rage. From an oceanfront Oaxaca rental to a California-cool property in the middle of the desert, keep scrolling for a few of our favorites.
An Off-the-Grid Oasis in Mexico (Playa El Venado, Oaxaca, MX)
Escape to Oaxaca and experience a taste of warmth: Spanning two-and-a-half acres, the solar-powered property — with its striking beachy-chic, all-white facade — is within steps of the beach. Its secluded locale is ideal for those yearning to explore beyond typical tourist traps. Inside, expect traditional Oaxacan design touches (think colorful fabrics, palapa roofs, lots of wood). Guests can also enjoy the on-site swimming pool, stunning gardens, and scenic trails.
A Joshua Tree Retreat (Palm Springs, CA)
This five-acre property offers panoramic desert, valley, and mountain views. The dome boasts three bedrooms and is chock-full of whimsical design elements (think vibrant-hued seating areas, futuristic-inspired furnishings, soaring ceilings, and exposed brick). And, while it feels remote, the property is just a 15-minute drive from Palm Springs’ bustling downtown.
This Upstate New York Mountain Hideout (Hensonville, NY)
This Catskill Mountains hideaway is flanked by postcard-worthy vistas and ample wildlife spotting opportunities. The dome’s interior is dotted with bespoke furniture, vibrant fabrics, and a collection of awe-inspiring artwork. The kitchen and seating areas are both nothing short of quirky — with cool wooden accents, a patterned sofa, and turquoise touches — while the charming bedroom features a custom-built birch headboard and ultra-comfy patterned linens.
A Design-Forward Desert Escape (Yucca Valley, CA)
Spanning 112 (!) acres, this California dome has been fully remodeled to offer comfort and convenience. The dome itself is surrounded by trees, yucca plants, boulders, hills, and mountains galore. Inside, the modern, minimalist-inspired, and uber-sleek aesthetic will captivate the hearts of every architecture enthusiast. Cap off your stay with a hike followed by a hearty homemade meal (best enjoyed outside by the firepit) prepared in the gorgeous chef’s kitchen.
