The most unusual and unique rentals on Airbnb to add to your wish list

Airbnb has changed the way I travel. Why do I love staying on Airbnb?


Well, not only because of possibility to meet a genuine local host, or getting the whole apartment for a price of a hotel room, but also because I can stay at truly unique and unusual places that would not be available as accommodation otherwise.


Here is a listing of some insane and incredible Airbnb rentals to add to your wish list!

I guess many of us, when we were kids, constructed little houses made of cardboard on the trees in the yard... Staying in such an unusual house now will bring back memories and dreams from childhood. Moreover, it can be an out-of-ordinary place for a romantic time with your beloved one. The beautiful beach of Porthallow is just ten minute walk  from the house.


A Tree house Poem:
"A tree house, a free house,
A secret you and me house,
A high up in the leafy branches
Cozy as can be house.

A street house, a neat house,
Be sure and wipe your feet house
Is not my kind of house at all-
Let's go live in a tree house."

Shel Silverstein
