Airbnb Wish Lists

If there are certain rental properties on Airbnb that you are interested in and you want to come back and decide between them later, or there is a certain place that you’ve always had a good experience at, you can add them to “Wish Lists”.

How to add properties to your Wish List

  1. To mark properties as ones you want to add to your Wish Lists on Airbnb, you’ll have to log in first. Go to in your web browser and click Log In in the top-right corner to bring up the pop-up window seen in the screenshot below. Click in each of the text boxes highlighted and type in your email address and password, and then click the “Log In” button in the pop-up window.

  2. Now, when you’re searching for rental properties, click the heart icon in the upper-right corner of the listing.

  3. A window will pop up allowing you to select which Wish List you want to add the listing to. Let’s say that you want to add it to a specific Wish List. Click in the box highlighted below to get started.

  4. This allows you to see which Wish Lists you have and select which ones you want to add the current listing to. You can even create a new one by clicking Create New, which is what we’ll do now.

  5. Now all you have to do is type in a name for your list, and then use the drop-down box next to it to select who can see this Wish List — everyone on Airbnb, or just you — and then click Create.

  6. Now, repeat step 3, then click the check boxes beside the Wish Lists that you want to add the current listing to, and then click Done.

  7. If you want to, you can click inside the box labelled “Add a Note” and type in something to say about the listing. Finally, click Save.

How to access and edit your Wish Lists

Once you’ve created a few Wish Lists and added a few properties to them, you can access and edit them from your account options any time that you like.

  1. When you are logged in, move your mouse cursor over your profile picture in the top-right corner until a drop-down menu appears, and click Wish Lists.

  2. Here, you can see the Wish Lists that you’ve set up. Click on one to see what listings are in it.

  3. For each listing:

    – You can click on its name to take you to more detailed information about the property.

    – You can click on the left or right edges of the thumbnail picture here to cycle through photographs of the property.

    – You can click on the box labelled “Add Note” and type in something to say about the listing, and then click Add Note to save it.

    – You can click Change to move the listing to a different Wish List, or click Remove to take the listing off this Wish List.


  4. You can also click on Map View to see all listings on this Wish List on a map. Click List View to go back to the other type of view.

And that’s pretty much all there is to know about using Wish Lists on Airbnb!
