12 OF THE MOST OUTRAGEOUS PLACES YOU CAN ACTUALLY RENT ON AIRBNB

A while back I realized that renting a hotel room is kind of dumb, especially when you have a group with you. You basically just have a single room where you can sit on the bed or at that weird desk in the corner. AirBnB is the perfect solution because you end up getting an entire home with way more space and privacy. It’s ideal. But let’s say you’re looking for something unique. Here are 12 of the most outrageous AirBnB listings that are actually available to rent right now. Note that the prices listed are their standard prices and could be higher or lower depending on the day you’re attempting to book.

1. The Headfort House
01[1]
Where is it? Kells, Meath, Ireland
How much? $1,357/night
How many people does it hold? Sleeps 70/Ballroom seats 120
What makes it unique? When this private preparatory school isn’t in session with students, it’s available to rent. It’s ideal for special events, and where else are you ever going to be able to rent something so extraordinary for your birthday party?

2. The Seashell House
02[1]
Where is it? Isla Mujeres, Mexico
How much? $308/night
How many people does it hold? Four guests
What makes it unique? Well, look at it. It looks like part of the Dr. Seuss area at Universal, but it’s a fully functioning house. According to the listing it was designed by Raquel and Eduardo Ocampo, and people marveled over it for years, but didn’t realize it was available for stays. Now, thanks to AirBnB, anyone can spend the night in this amazing house.

3. The Capsule Tower
03[1]
Where is it? Shimbashi, Tokyo, Japan
How much? $145/night
How many people does it hold? Two, but not overnight
What makes it unique? The cubes were designed by Kisho Kurokawa in 1972. The inside sort of resembles the interior of a spaceship with the round window and narrow spaces. Unfortunately you can’t stay overnight, but if you rent the place out you can visit as much as you want, while sleeping at a nearby apartment.

4. The Houseboat Under the Eiffel Tower
04[1]
Where is it? Paris, France
How much? $170/night
How many people does it hold? Two guests
What makes it unique? If you want to stay close to the Eiffel Tower, this is the way to go. The houseboat is larger than you’d think, with two levels and your own private bathroom, one bed, and deck. The beds are small, but if you’re taking a trip to the Eiffel Tower with someone, it’s probably a person you’d want to cuddle with.

5. The English Castle
05[1]
Where is it? Cumbria, United Kingdom
How much? $190/night
How many people does it hold? Two guests
What makes it unique? Forget themed hotels. This is a legit castle that you can stay in for the same price as a stay at the Best Western. You get to pick one of fifteen rooms, or, for a larger price, you can reserve the entire castle and finally live like King Koopa.

6. The Cubehouse
06[1]
Where is it? Rotterdam, South Holland, The Netherlands
How much? $152/Night
How many people does it hold? Four guests in two bedrooms
What makes it unique? This work of art is located in the center of Rotterdam and features unique window designs with lots of different geometrical shapes throughout the home.

7. The Off-Grid House
07[1]
Where is it? Pioneertown, California
How much? $380/night
How many people does it hold? Four guests
What makes it unique? If you want a unique look at the future of green living, this is it. It’s one of 10 IT Houses in California and was named one of the best houses of all time in Southern California by the LA Times. It’s completely “off-grid” meaning that the energy and hot water are powered by solar panels. On top of that, the views are amazing with as much natural light as you would ever want.

8. The Clock Tower
08[1]
Where is it? London, United Kingdom
How much? $202/night
How many people does it hold? Four guests
What makes it unique? Why stay near a clock tower when you could stay INSIDE one? Few hotels could compare to the unique experience of spending the night inside the mini apartment within the St Pancras Station clock tower. It was built in 1868, but still has TV and internet, so it’s not exactly like Quasimodo’s life.

9. The Tile House
09[1]
Where is it? Twentynine Palms, California
How much? $175/night
How many people does it hold? Four guests
What makes it unique? The house itself is obviously amazing since it’s made of over 2,500 square feet of mosaic. It’s been an ongoing project by the owners for over 15 years and they’re constantly expanding it. The outside is one thing, but you really need to see all the pictures of the interior to really grasp all the time and effort that’s gone into this amazing place.

10. The Container Home
10[1]
Where is it? Palma de Mallorca, Balearic Islands, Spain
How much? $159
How many people does it hold? Three guests
What makes it unique? When you hear the phrase “container home” you probably don’t think luxury, but this place is incredible. There’s even a pool and BBQ area. You don’t have to be an expert in architecture to appreciate the amazing craftsmanship that went into this home. It’s a work of art.

11. The Modern Tree House
11[1]
Where is it? Atlanta, Georgia
How much? $500/night
How many people does it hold? Four guests
What makes it unique? This is not the type of tree house you had as a kid. This is a 2-story dream house that’s more elegant than most high-end hotels you’ve visited. It even has internet and cable television. Unfortunately it’s not available for events, so no tree house birthday parties for you.

12. The Frank Lloyd Wright
12[1]
Where is it? Two Rivers, Wisconsin
How much? $425/night
How many people does it hold? Eight guests
What makes it unique? I mean, it’s a Frank Lloyd Wright LIFE Magazine dream house. What more could you possibly want for your trip to Wisconsin?
