Treat Yourself to an Ultra Cool Experience with These Airbnb Accommodations
Add Some Excitement with These Unique Accommodations
You’ve heard about Airbnb, right? In case you’re one of the few who needs the lowdown on Airbnb, it’s a site where travelers can book alternative accommodations from hosts.
It connects those with a space to spare to those who need a place to stay. While you have to forfeit things like a constant supply of fresh, clean towels and a concierge desk, that’s outweighed by the opportunity to rent an actual house or apartment — or, even something quite a bit more unique.
Check out these options for the best of Airbnb that are a far cry from your standard hotel.
Shark Aquarium, Paris, France
Airbnb recently unveiled one of the most unique rooms you could possibly spend the night in, but if you have a fear of sharks, look away now. This is very first underwater bedroom hosted by Airbnb, where the only thing separating guests from 35 sharks is a 360-degree, transparent wall.
You can find it at the Aquarium de Paris in Paris, France, where it’s submerged in an 800,000-gallon shark tank.
Host Fred Buyle, a world-record-breaking free-diver, underwater photographer and shark conservationist, welcomes guests and provides a guided tour through the aquarium along with an exclusive behind-the-scenes look into the world of sharks, including how they live, why they’re so misunderstood and their importance to the ocean’s ecosystem.
An intimate meal, complete with underwater, shark-filled scenery is also included.

The Bow Top Gypsy Wagon, Helston, Cornwall, UK
Ever wanted to live like a gypsy? Now you can, at least temporarily.
Visit Cornwall, England and you can stay in this gypsy wagon, something that was popular for about 70 years between the late-18th and early-19th century. Set in the countryside, guests enjoy a wood stove, though unlike the wagons used in the days of yore, it does offer electricity and gas or electric heating.
While there isn’t much room, the views and tranquility more than make up for the lack of space.

King of the Castle, Galway, Ireland
Here’s your chance to live like a king, or a queen, and in the spectacular Emerald Isle no less. Peter, the owner, spent a decade refurbishing this 600-year-old medieval castle, complete with a toilet and bath, something that was lacking back then.
He also says that while there are some cobwebs, there are lots of winding staircases and it gives guests the “real Irish castle experience.”
