We’re counting down the days to the momentous release of Greta Gerwig’s Barbie movie. And while we’d certainly like to draw some laughs and pathos from the film, we’re also hoping for a bit of travel inspo. Barbie has shaped generations with her iconic style, vibrant personality, and unapologetic love for all things pink — in the process, she’s become a symbol of empowerment and limitless possibilities.
If you’re inspired by the story of the doll whose heels never touch the ground, you’re not alone. This summer is all-pink-everything season and that includes vacation rentals and hotel properties. Picture yourself stepping into a world where hues of neon pink become the color of relaxation, luxury, and indulgence. Imagine waking up in a Barbie-inspired vacation rental, surrounded by whimsical decor, plush furnishings, and an atmosphere of pure joy. Then check the availabilities on any of the options below that capture your fancy.
