First came @AccidentallyWesAnderson in all its whimsy. Now we have the “You better not act like you’re in a Wes Anderson film” trend flooding Tiktok FYPs everywhere. From streetscapes in Oslo to German train carriages, bars in the American Midwest and British homes filled with symmetrical details, there’s no denying the allure of pastels, meticulously assembled backdrops and kitsch-cool accoutrements.

Ahead of the release of Anderson’s latest film, Asteroid City, Airbnb has compiled a wishlist of stays that promise to fulfil any cinephile's fantasies. If you’re looking to recreate the filmmaker’s signature rectilinear, deadpan style on social media, it’s time to get booking.

There’s Claris the retro caravan, parked just outside of Auckland. Bed down for a night or two by the coast and enjoy breakfast from bakelite dinnerware beneath the orange striped awning. If motorhomes are your schtick and you’re heading stateside, save this bright yellow RV in the woodlands for an off-grid Tennessee adventure or check in to an updated Airstream in California’s Joshua Tree National Park.

This year, gift them a dinner to remember with a Broadsheet Gift Card.


For those planning a European escape this winter, be sure to bookmark this colourful stay by the sea in Santorini. It offers a unique take on Oia’s signature white-roofed homes – and is complete with a hot tub overlooking the Aegean. There’s a gelato-hued home in Puglia that’s been designed with art-lovers in mind and a Venetian townhouse that can sleep up to eight people overlooking the Rio Marin Canal.

From Madrid to Margate and even a UFO in Wales, quirk reigns supreme. You can book a cabin on a private island in Norway to truly indulge in a main character moment.

Closer to home, this pleasingly pastel house in Melbourne’s Clifton Hill neighbourhood is prime for a city break filled with charm.
