There is something supremely satisfying, and even a little brag-worthy about finding the quirkiest accomodation you again. That goes about tenfold with travel being what it is now and your hotel being the main event of a trip away.
Well, we’ve got you and your ‘Gram covered. Airbnb is pretty well known for its odder properties, so we scoured the listings for the weirdest (but in a cool way) houses for rent around the country.
Obviously check the current travel advice of your own state before you go, be responsible, etc etc.
10 Unique Airbnbs In Australia
#1 The Cube, SA
Hire your own little floating cube/ houseboat/ “Modern Concept Floating Eco Pod” on the Murray River in White Sands, South Australia. They’ll even supply the groceries for a brekkie for two.
#2 The Carriage, WA
When you have a chance to live in a kitted-out train carriage, you absolutely must take it. This one used to be part of the Barossa Valley Hotel, kicking round since 1901 and lovingly restored.
#3 Floating Villa, NSW
I mean, this is it, everyone else can go home because this adorable floating shack in the middle of Palm Beach wins the day. The hosts even have a bunch of hand-crafted itineraries for you to follow.
#4 Thalia Haven, TAS
I’m a sucker for a cool bathtub setup, so if there’s an outdoor bath option I’m almost always in. Throw in a stone fireplace, views to die for and 130-acres of private wooded peninsula and I’m ALWAYS in.
#5 The Manor Basket Range, SA
This is some Downton Abbey level stuff here, folks. This country estate and historic castle features private townhouse style rooms and ACTUAL turrets. I cannot.
#6 Treehouse, NSW
This is the treehouse of your childhood dreams. Chill in the middle of 600 acres of private wilderness in the Blue Mountains. Oh and there’s a fireplace too, what more could you want?
#7 Squeakywindmill Boutique Tent B&B, NT
If there’s anywhere in Australia that feels like the perfect place for a glamping adventure, it’s the Northern Territory. This luxe tent is set up with a ensuite and kitchenette in the western MacDonell Ranges.
#8 Stargazer, QLD
Did I mention my love of cool bathtub setups? This one has an open bathroom that will let you watch the sun set from the stone tub. Not to mention a glass ceilings for star gazing.
#9 Arabella Tiny Home, NSW
I’ll be the first to admit I know nothing about architecture, but that doesn’t stop me from knowing this architecture is ridiculously cool. I mean, a glass bathroom?
#10 The Tower, VIC
Excuse, you can stay in a legit castle in the middle of Mount Ophir Estate in Victoria‘s Rutherglen. The decor inside is also beautiful and modern, so you get the best of both worlds.
