If you, your friends, or your kids proudly count yourselves among those Potterheads, then we have the perfect vacation idea: Harry Potter-themed rentals across the globe. Here are 15 of the best Airbnbs and Vrbos of the wizarding world.

Harry Potter and Mickey Mouse-Themed Luxury Rental

vrbo

Orlando, FL | sleeps 8

book it

Located near Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando’s Harry Potter park, this luxury property caters to Mickey fans and Potterheads alike. Guests can choose from four bedrooms, one of which is dedicated to Harry Potter fanatics. Save for the Mickey Mouse room, the rest of the home is elegantly decorated and well-furnished to guarantee a relaxing stay.

Harry's Dorm Room

vrbo

Chickamauga, Georgia | sleeps 4

book it

When we think of Harry Potter, we don’t think of Georgia. That said, this Harry Potter-themed guest suite might change our minds. With its beautiful antiques, stained-glass windows, and oil paintings, the space feels like a boarding school in the Highlands of Scotland. The only downside might be the rental’s size; but hey, it’s supposed to be a dorm room.

Godric's Hollow of Hollywood Fame

Airbnb

Lavenham, England | sleeps 2

book it

The De Vere House is one of our favorites on this list, not only because it appeared as Godric’s Hollow in the Harry Potter films, but also thanks to its fanciful decorations and charming location. The bed and breakfast sits in the middle of Lavenham, a medieval town that’s sure to transport you to the wizarding world. Unfortunately, this getaway is only for Harry Potter fans over 18.

Magical Manor Near the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Airbnb

Orlando, FL | sleeps 13

book it

Your children won’t let you leave once you set foot in this themed five-bedroom house. Like most of our selections, this rental comes well-decorated with all the trappings of a magical castle, from faux cobblestone walls to shiny suits of armor. And if you or your kids ever get bored (how?), you’ll find a flatscreen TV and Nintendo Switch hidden inside the fireplace. It’s also located 10 minutes away from every Potterhead’s dream attraction: the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando.

Budget Conscious Potter themed room

Airbnb

Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada | sleeps 2

book it

This guest bedroom’s low price included the rental’s charming decorations, including a personalized Hogwarts acceptance letter. Of course, you won’t be quartering a whole family here — there’s only one bed — but the themed room would be perfect for a frugal couple or traveling Potterhead.

Magical Cabin With a View of the Rockies

Airbnb

Angel Fire, New Mexico | sleeps 8

book it

While the hosts have skimped on the decorations, the rental’s unbeatable location and surrounding wildlife make up for its lack of Hogwarts-themed ornamentation. So whether you want to cozy up to the fireplace with The Prisoner of Azkaban or journey to the nearby lake for a swim, this is the getaway for outdoorsy Potter fans looking for an escape.

Potter-Themed Bed and Breakfast

Airbnb

Salem, Massachusetts | sleeps 2

book it

Curated by a former designer in the games and toy industry, this themed B&B boasts a room that looks like it’s been pulled straight from one of the Harry Potter movies. The getaway is in a prime location, just one mile from the city center — which is oddly fitting, given Salem’s infamous past as the site of the witch trials.

Harry Potter Getaway in Lyon, France

Airbnb

Lyons, France | sleeps 4

book it

Nestled in between Lyon’s Saône and Rhône rivers, this themed rental lets you live the Harry Potter dream while you galavant through one of France’s most beautiful cities. The apartment features two beds, one for Gryffindor and another for Slytherin, which we’re sure have led to a few petty quarrels.

Harry Potter's “Podunk” Townhouse

Airbnb

Lexington, Kentucky | sleeps 8

book it

This self-described “Podunk” rental is located in the middle of downtown Lexington, the heart of bluegrass music. But don’t be fooled by the listing’s title: The hosts have decorated this rental to the hilt with Harry Potter memorabilia and flourishes. Guests also have access to a small backyard for a bit of afternoon quidditch.

Harry's Historic Homestead

Airbnb

Winston, Oregon | sleeps 10

book it

This farm home dates back to 1887 and is part of the National Register of Historic Places, making it magical in its own right. But the hosts have upped the ante, adding a few tasteful Potter-themed decorations that complement the homestead’s beautiful furnishings and expansive property.

Hogwarts House at Regal Palms Resort

Airbnb

Davenport, FL | sleeps 10

book it

This townhouse is part of Regal Palms’ luxury resort, meaning that you have access to a lazy pool, water slide, tiki bar, and other amenities. But our focus is on the rental, which shines thanks to its themed rooms and thoughtful Harry Potter-themed decorations. Even the kitchen looks like something you’d find in Diagon Alley, with its exposed brick walls and torch lamps.

Wizard's House Outside of France's Most Romantic Town

Airbnb

Colmar, France | sleeps 4

book it

The town of Colmar continually tops the lists of France’s most beautiful villages — and for good reason. With its timber-framed buildings, cobblestone streets, and Gothic cathedral, Colmar is the definition of a storybook European town and is the perfect place for this ending Harry Potter-themed rental.

Gryffindor Common Room in Canada

Airbnb

Victoria, British Columbia | sleeps 4

book it

Airbnb hosts Steve and Thao have transformed their entire condo into the Gryffindor common room — and it looks incredible. They’ve adorned their exposed brick walls with some of the series’ most memorable magical artifacts, and the condo’s cramped-but-cozy layout makes you feel like you’re in a Hogwarts common room.
