6 Guests | 2 Bedrooms | 1 Bathrooms

Book Now: $190 per night, airbnb.com

Richmond is filled with historic homes with strong bones that have withstood the test of time, and this is beautifully furnished home is one example. You’ll love the parade of colour, from the vibrant blue-on-white in the living room to the mint-green on the walls of the kitchen and some bedrooms to the vibrant salmon pink in another. This house is perfectly outfitted for a family of 6 looking for the perfect base to tour Richmond for the first time.

Here’s the property description from Airbnb:

“The Mettā Home was built in 1895 for Irvin Hudson, an upholsterer, and features original pine hardwood floors & vibrant colors throughout. It’s a visual representation of not what we think, how we think—the embodiment of our thoughts, philosophies and values. In a society choked by an endless stream of information and mass-production, our three bedroom home should feel like a sanctuary: a harmonious space of realignment.”
