Who doesn't daydream of waking up in their own private palace? If you find yourself under the stars next to the rolling sand dunes of Marrakech, you could do just that. Well, sort of: This Airbnb rental maybe be royal only in name, but The Cozy Palace is a private oasis in the center of the city that truly looks and feels like something out of Arabian Nights.

The rooms are outfitted with authentic Moroccan touches; think hand-spun rugs, African artwork and traditional Marrakech lanterns. The master suite comes with a four-poster bed and a large, circular skylight; the doorways and intricately carved ceiling are framed by hand-painted mosaics; and, if you're lucky, you might have a wood-burning fireplace.

Perhaps the best part is the rooftop terrace and outdoor patio, typical of traditional riads—a style of Moroccan house derived from the Arabian word for "garden." Take breakfast in the courtyard before heading out to the city's famed bazaars and markets, then head back and take in the rooftop's remarkable views from a comfortable lounge chair.

The location is amazing, but the price is what grabbed us: It's only $126 a night. Meaning you now have money for all the food adventures you have planned.
