The Most Unique Airbnbs You Can Rent Today

Even if you live in a gorgeous home, taking a vacation is a singular pleasure. You don’t have to do any dishes, and you get to explore a new neighborhood, meet new people, and try new things.

The next time you’re contemplating a weekend away, check out some of these amazing options on Airbnb that go beyond a simple house or apartment. You can stay in a Medieval castle, take a beach vacation in a house shaped like a giant seashell, or bunk down in a legit clock tower. Bonus, they’re more affordable than the average hotel room.

La Flocellière – Loire, France

If you’ve ever fantasized about living in a Medieval castle, then renting out the apartment at La Flocellière is for you. The host, Erika, is a vicomtesse, and the rental apartment is in the tower of her family castle. It’s the perfect place for a family vacation – there are five bedrooms which can accommodate up to 10 people at a time.

Erika and her husband are excellent hosts, and encourage people to learn about the history of the castle and the region. The castle is close enough to the town that getting up in the morning and buying a steaming hot baguette from the local bakery can be a daily occurrence.

Dome Room – Sacred Valley, Peru

This tiny, cozy house is an awesome stop-over for active travellers who want a comfortable bed and modern amenities in the middle of the Peruvian mountains. This dome house is part of an eco-conscious community called La Pacha, which is close to the town of Pisac, and nestled close to Apu Pachatusan mountain.

The grounds of the community contain various ceremonial sites, which allow for days of contemplation and meditation. The hosts, Milagros and Diego, live next door and can help arrange transportation in and out of La Pacha.

Casa Caracol – Isla Mujeres, Mexico

This unique house has been a local landmark for years, but has only recently appeared on Airbnb. The entire house is shaped like two pure white seashells and is located in an exclusive gated community that’s only 15 minutes from the beach.

Casa Caracol houses four guests at a time. There are plenty of luxurious amenities like free Wi-Fi, air conditioning, a pool, and kitchenettes. If you love the beach, this house is definitely for you. Not only is the outside shaped like a shell, the interior is also completely covered in shells.
