MONTREAL — There seems to be no challenge too difficult for Airbnb.
Are you looking to stay in a gypsy van? You got it.
A beagle-shaped inn? You bet.
If your family is tired of staying in a run-of-the-mill hotel this spring break, why not escape (at least mentally) to one of these six unique places around the world?
The Wings Neck Lighthouse, formerly a US Coast Guard Lighthouse features a fabulous view of the Atlantic Ocean. According to the Airbnb listing, the vistas are “beautiful and traditionally New England.” Shiver me timbers!
A tree house
Could this be Neverland on Earth? Surprisingly located in the heart of Atlanta, Georgia, this tree house consists of three separate rooms. The living room, the bedroom and the deck are each connected by rope-bridges.
The bedroom features a bed equipped with wheels, so it can either be rolled out onto a platform that overlooks the stream below or remain inside the room.
An antique Gypsy car
For those looking for a different experience, this antique gypsy car might be just right for a mini getaway in Uzer, Rhone-Alpes, France.
The gypsy car is located in a castle property and has access to the garden swimming pool. The hostess is a massage therapist and offers Californian massages.
A self-serve pub
You can now stay in what this listing describes as “the world’s first self-catering pub.” While this bar-turned-accommodation is touted as a rural Irish escape, you may be disappointed to learn there is no beer served (although there is no indication you can’t BYOB). Conroy’s Old Bar or the “Pub with no Beer” is located in the small village of North Tipperary and promises a “real Ireland” experience.
A houseboat on the Seine
This 100-year-old houseboat is a five-minute walk away from the Eiffel Tower. Floating on a pedestrian pier along the banks of the Seine in Paris, this Unesco’s World Heritage site could be your temporary humble abode for just $159 CDN a night.
A beagle-shaped home
Calling all dog lovers out there: you can now stay in a giant dog-themed property in rural Idaho. This beagle-shaped, bed-and-breakfast offers prairie views, dog-themed decor and even the Dog Bark Park visitor centre. It also features a gift shop and artists studio. where owners Dennis and Frances fashion canine carvings with a chainsaw.
