On a lighter note than last week’s post, we pulled together a list of some of the weirdest vacation rentals that are currently available to rent. With listings from an entire Tuscan castle in Italy, to a house shaped like a boot on New Zealand’s South Island, these places are sure to inspire your sense of Wanderlust. Check them out!
Now, if you are a Washingtonian, like me, you may be wondering if there are any crazy rentals in our home state. The answer is yes! Set in Walla Walla, perfect for a wine tasting weekend, is this unique barn with a converted wine barrel bedroom attached. The barrel houses a double bed and the whole place can sleep up to six people. The best part by far is that it is only $287 a night. If you need me for the next six months, you know where to find me! See ya!
Yes… This is exactly what you think it is! An entire castle in Tuscany, set near lake Trasimeno with over nine hectares of land surrounding it, including a pool and tennis court. Now if you are thinking, sign me up (!!) then just make sure you can handle this sticker price. At $1,212 a night this isn’t exactly a bargain, but it can sleep up to thirteen people, and I mean sleeping in a castle is pretty priceless…
No, this isn’t a new season of Lost. This plane was intentionally grounded, and well mounted in a tree, and then converted into complete teak lined vacation rental. This is the brainchild of a brilliant property owner in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. The converted plane sleeps up to six people with awesome views of the water and the national park. For $417 a night you can live out your inner stranded in the jungle fantasy, without giving up any of your creature comforts.
The Hawaiian islands are as different from one another as Northern and Southern California, so why shouldn’t the vacation houses there be as well? Well, this one certainly is. This boombox shaped house on the Big Island is sure to appeal to unique modern design lovers. For $182 a night, you and four friends could crash here. Just make sure you like ladders. I mean REALLY LIKE ladders, check out the photos to see what I mean.
Have you ever wished your house was a bit more like the hall of mirrors at a carnival fun house? Then this is the rental for you! This mirror house in Pittsburgh, PA is sure to catch all of you best angles! For a modest $165 a night, you and nine friends can ponder your better features while enjoying an artist design and truly unique space.
Have you ever dreamed you lived in a fairytale and then woken up and realized your life wasn’t nearly that interesting? Well for $183 a night, you really could wake up in a fairy tale. Set in Tasman, on the South Island of New Zealand, this unique boot shaped house is available as a nightly rental for you and your plus one. With a minibar, fresh baked goods from the bakery across the street, and chocolates on your pillow, you may never leave!
