Airbnb reveals Florida's most popular rentals, including waterfront stays starting at $107 a night

Some of Florida's most cherished vacation rentals are now at your fingertips thanks to a new feature added to Airbnb's website that showcases the most popular stays in any area. 

"Guest Favorites" is Airbnb's new way of letting travelers find the most popular homes, based on ratings, reviews and reliability, according to a press release. 

To celebrate the new "Guest Favorites" feature, Airbnb released a list of five of Florida's favorite vacation stays – and a couple of them can be booked right here in Orlando. Four of the five homes showcased in Airbnb's report boast waterfront views, three of them have pools and they're all rented out by Superhosts. 

These five homes, spanning Orlando, Jensen Beach, Jupiter and Homosassa, have an average nightly rate of about $138, with the most affordable listed at $107 a night. 

According to Airbnb, 30% of listings in Florida are considered Guest Favorites, meaning they have "excellent reviews" and are rated above 4.9 stars on average.

Here's a look at just some of Florida's most popular Airbnbs, according to the vacation rental site:

Recent review: "I have no idea where to start! First, Ken and Chuck are the most amazing and kind humans that I’ve ever met. The world would be a better place if there where more humans like them! This was my first time doing a shared AirBnb experience and I loved it. The house is beautiful and clean. Chuck gave me a personal tour and was just so kind and friendly. Great cookies baked by him too! Clean room. Beautiful pool and jacuzzi. Honestly, it felt like I was at home with family. I will be returning."

Recent review: "If I could give Tom and Gordy's place 10 stars, I would with no hesitation. My bf and I arrived with an idea of what we were going to do over the weekend and ended up canceling most of our plans to just relax at the house. I could literally write a book on everything I loved about "Camp Copeland". This was, by far, the best AirbnB I've ever stayed at. If you are thinking about staying with Tom and Gordy, do it! I'm already making plans to go back."

Rating: 5.0 stars

Recent review: "We cannot say enough great things about our time at Peggy’s place! Beautiful location being right on the water - sipping our morning coffee on the dock was such a peaceful way to start each day. We rented the kayaks and I cannot recommend that enough! A lot of fun wildlife to see on the river (being from out of state, the jumping fish were some of our favorites!). Peggy and Corky were so sweet and made us feel right at home. Peggy’s place will be our go to spot now for the next time we visit Jupiter."
