Looking to discover the most unique Airbnb rentals in the world? You’ve come to the right place. Renting an Airbnb isn’t just about scoring a villa on the cheap, it also offers lots of unique stays that you’d otherwise have no access to. From a bamboo treehouse to glass igloo, a skylodge perched on the mountains and even a whole private island, check out these unique Airbnb rentals that’ll make you want to book a ticket right away!
1. Eco Bamboo House, Bali
When we think of a romantic getaway or dream vacation, many of us imagine Bali. This eco bamboo house on the island is built right next to a river, so you wake up every morning to the sounds of nature and stunning views of the surrounding bamboo forest. There are lots of activities to do in the nearby town of Ubud, and your Airbnb host can also arrange yoga sessions, massages, and Bamboo-related tours and workshops!
2. Wilton castle, Ireland
Fulfil all your royalty dreams by renting an entire castle for you and your entourage. Elegant and imposing, Wilton castle is a 19th century castellated residence set on the banks of the Boro River. There are seven bedrooms which can house up to 14 people. The reviews are absolutely glowing, although for a price tag of US$1,407 a night, it’s hard to expect anything less.
3. Bird Island, Belize
Renting a treehouse or a castle is cool, but have you thought about renting an entire island? If you want to truly get away from it all with your friends or family in a comfortable and quaint setting, then this is the place. Bird Island is inside one of the most beautiful atolls in Belize, and you have the entire island all to yourself in absolute privacy. The host can also arrange for side tours to do some fun activities if you wish. Otherwise, kick back, relax, and enjoy the crystal clear waters!
4. Skylodge Adventure Suites, Peru
Love mountains and the heights? Ever wanted to sleep in a condor’s nest? This transparent luxury capsule hanging from the mountain in Peru is the next best thing. One of the most unique Airbnb rentals in the Sacred Valley of Cuzco, Peru, you can sleep in a completely transparent hanging bedroom and see impressive views of the magical valley. Getting here is also an adventure in itself – you must climb 400 metres of Via Ferrata, or hike an intrepid trail through ziplines!
5. Dog Bark Park Inn B&B, Montana
Stay in a giant dog! Dog Bark Park Inn B&B makes being in the doghouse a fun thing. This beagle-shaped building can house up to four people, and there are many selections of books, games and puzzles to keep you entertained. Of course, many of which are dog themed! This unique Airbnb sits at the edge of Cottonwood in rural Idaho, offering expansive views of prairie grain fields and surrounding mountains.
6. Secluded Airship, Scotland
Dubbed Scotland’s ‘most unusual’ stay, AirShip002 is a contemporary cabin in one of the remotest areas in the Highlands. With expansive views over the sound of mull, the AirShip offers seclusion in Drimnin on the West Coast of Scotland. The aluminum pod is designed by Roderick James and we love how quirky it is! At night, retreat to the deck of this sustainable getaway and gaze at the twinkling constellations under a cosy tartan blanket.
7. Snow Igloo, Finland
Not sure about you, but one of the items on my bucket list is to sleep in an igloo. If you’re like me, this unique Airbnb in Finland offers just exactly that. There are beds and warm sleeping bags, but it’s below freezing inside the igloo, so guests should bring their own thermos layers, hat, socks and gloves. If you’re extra lucky, you may even catch the northern lights outside your igloo!
8. True Plane, France
Sleep in an actual plane that’s been converted to an Airbnb! We love this for a summer getaway – during May to September, there’s a swimming pool and water slides onsite! Also, it is just two minutes away from the beaches of Tharon, Pornic and Saint Brévin. There is a shower and even toilet in the cockpit, making this Airbnb much more than just a glamping experience!
