Airbnb - Unique Places to Stay

Saturday, December 06, 2014

People often ask me on receiving my Airbnb invite - "Hey what is this Airbnb?

Airbnb isn't a new term among travelers. It is a site for people to rent out unique lodging around the world, and has been around for almost 6 years now. 

Here is my Airbnb referral link - www.airbnb.co.in/c/snandi5?s=8. Join Airbnb with this link to save Rs. 1545 on your first booking. 

Two years back Airbnb launched the wish list feature which enables users to create a list of desired lodging they would like to stay in. Thus Airbnb went from being a platform for lodging rentals to a source for aspiration. This list once created can be shared with other users or kept private, according to the person's preference.

Here is my wish list link to 5 Unique Places to Stay - https://www.airbnb.co.in/wishlists/46541376.

You would notice the 5 places range from budget to bombastically expensive ones. That's what wish lists are supposed to be like right? (In case I hit gold and become a millionaire in few years time ;-) )

1. "Alone on your own Fiji Island", Nanuku Levu, Fiji, Rs. 30906/night, Accommodates 10 guests - Well if you are actually a group of 10 friends, this wouldn't be as expensive as it sounds. But if someone wishes to celebrate honeymoon there, you got to break the piggy bank buddy, or probably a real bank!

2. "Stunning All Bamboo House near Ubud", Abiansemal, Bali, Indonesia, Rs. 20089/night, Accommodates 9 guests - I am so mesmerized by its earthy and rustic look, as if it is just out of a dream - my dream. This is that kind of place that I would love to share with very close friends and relax for few days there, till we realize we are running out of money.

3. "Jack Sparrow House, Cornwall", Helston, England, United Kingdom, Rs. 9681/night, Accommodates 2 guests - If you analyze closely you'll realize, this is by far the most expensive "wish" in this wish list, since I get to share this only with one other person. If you are willing to spend money on this cute (and weird) and cozy pirate house, I think it's well worth a night's experience. Savvy?

4. "Original old Afghani yurt", Nuremberg, Bavaria, Germany, Rs. 2214/night, Accommodates 2 guests - Yurts are portable dwellings used by nomads in Central Asia and this accommodation here is an almost replica of a yurt. I know what you are thinking right now. You will probably get the grapes and wine if you pay for it, but definitely not the belly dancers!!!

5. "#06 GEODESIC DOME AND COSY SPACE", Facinas, Andalusia, Spain, Rs. 3206/night, Accommodates 3 guests - Excelente!!! The view, the creativity, the price makes it the perfect blend, and perhaps it is a portable option. Check pictures between No. 12 to 24 to know why I'm going so gaga over this place.

So if you had to choose one out of these 5 choices, which one would you pick?
