We are big advocates of using Airbnb while travelling. The idea of having an entire place to yourself and living like a local in a new country is the ultimate way to travel if you ask us. Whenever we start planning a new trip or begin day dreaming about the next countries we want to travel to we always jump straight onto Airbnb to find what unique rentals are available.

Here is a list of our top 10 most epic Airbnb rentals from around the world you never knew existed!

1. Icelandic Cottage, Laugarvatn, Iceland

This unique cottage was completed in 2010, located in one of the best vacation areas in the country – in the middle of the famous Golden Circle Route. The rental was built to reflect the Icelandic landscape and complement the small vegetation of moss and trees in the old lava-field. 


2. Secluded Treehouse, Atlanta, United States

If you are looking for a fairytale getaway I think we’ve found it. This rental is made up of three separate rooms, all connected by rope bridge. You are completed surrounded by lush greenery, and will easily forget that you are in the middle of Atlanta.


3. Glass Cabin, Golden, Canada

Located on the Blaeberry river near Golden BC, this unique and modern cabin is the ultimate retreat. The cabin is outfitted with 2 bedrooms with queen beds and a vaulted ceiling living room boasting 180 degrees of forest, mountain and river views. Heaven!


4. Medieval Castle, Galway, Ireland

Live like a king in your very own castle! Built in the 15th century, this beautiful medieval castle has been restored to its original state with a master bedroom at the top of the tower for guests to stay in.


5. Romantic Wooden Treehouse, Alessandria, Italy

6. Modern Lakeside Cabin, Akureyri, Iceland

We are aware there is already an epic Airbnb in Iceland on the list, but we couldn’t pick between the two – so you are getting both! This stylish, modern apartment is surrounded by stunning a landscape.  In the winter time you can enjoy the aurora borealis and in the summer time the midnight sun.


7. Cubehouse, Rotterdam, Netherlands

This has got to be one of the most unique Airbnb’s we have ever seen! During WWII many Rotterdam buildings were destroyed. The architects had a bit of fun redesigning many areas in new, modern and surprising styles. One example is The Cubic Houses, designed in the 1980s. Three stories high, this is one for the bucket list.


8. Dome In The Desert, Joshua Tree, United States

This secluded geodesic dome house in Joshua Tree is the perfect place to re-energise. The dome rests on multiple acres and is secluded from neighbours so you can enjoy sprawling desert mountain views and the star-filled night sky in privacy. Yet, it is conveniently located only a few miles from the wonderful town center of Joshua Tree


9. Bamboo Eco Cottage, Ubud, Bali

This bamboo cottage is a secluded eco retreat down a quiet foot path nestled in the rice fields and only a five minute walk to central Ubud. Open air basket weave bedroom with mini loft, modern elegant bathroom and outdoor living area make this a truly unique Bali experience.


10. Tree Sparrow House, Cornwall, United Kingdom

As you can guess by now we are a sucker for a cute treehouse getaway. Perched in an ash tree with sweeping sea and countryside views, this tree house rental offers a cozy and unique getaway for two.
