Most of us dream of owning an exotic second home in the mountains one day; tragically, very few of us will actually achieve it.
But thanks to home-rental sites like Airbnb and HomeAway, we can experience it (if only for a weekend), and adventure journalist Sebastiaan Bedaux wants to help us get there. The shutterbug behind an inspired Instagram account, Bedaux has assembled a collection of eclectic, farflung holiday homes in a new book called Mountain View: The Perfect Holiday Homes.
Included in the 224-page full-color compendium? An A-frame treehouse in Sri Lanka. A cedar cabin overlooking New Zealand’s navy blue Lake Wanaka. Shelters and lodges in Hokkaido, Joshua Tree, South Africa and Switzerland. All available for rent, and all in the presence of majestic views.
