Many HGTV fans would love to live in a home renovated by Chip and Joanna Gaines, stars of the hit show Fixer Upper. But even those fans who know everything there is to know about the Texas-based couple and their adorable family might not be aware you don’t have to move to the Waco area in order to experience life in a Fixer Upper house. In fact, all you have to do is book a stay in one of the many homes that have ended up on Airbnb after Chip and Joanna handed over the keys.
Of course, Chip and Joanna aren’t thrilled the “dream homes” they renovate for clients are popping up as vacation rentals. In fact, the show’s contracts will be more strict about the practice. Nonetheless, many people think Joanna’s clean aesthetic makes for a perfect Airbnb rental. Want to take a vacation to Texas despite the Gaineses’ objections? Let’s take a peek at the best Fixer Upper homes you can book on Airbnb.
1. The Mailander house
The Mailander house, renovated on the first season of Fixer Upper, accommodates four guests in three bedrooms. And it’s just a quick drive (or bike ride) away from the Magnolia Market Silos. The home, located on North Fifth Street, was built in 1910. Chip and Joanna renovated the home for owners Dave Morrow and Marla Hendricks, who moved out of the house when they got tired of all the attention it got from adoring Fixer Upper fans.
