6 TOTALLY RANDOM BUT DREAMY HOLIDAY RENTALS ON AIRBNB

Gone are the days when organising a trip abroad felt like a monotonous chore. No longer will the thought of having to 'research' flights, accommodation and travel insurance send shivers down your spine (and not in that tingly-excited kinda' way). 

For all my fellow wanderlust-ing pals out there, I assure you that you won't have to trawl through pages of overpriced and drabby hotels and hostels on Expedia anymore. From a saloon in the Californian desert, to a castle in India, just hit up Airbnb, and you could find yourself chillin' out, maxin' and relaxin' all cool in one of these weird and wonderful holiday rentals.

1. Luxury Castle in Rajasthan, India

Yes, you heard right, you can rent a room in this ridiculously amazing castle. And yes, you will be treated like the Prince or Princess you rightly deserve to be when you're on holiday-- you not only get your own doorman, but 24 hour room service is provided. If you didn't think it could get any dreamier, did I also mention that you have the option of going horse riding, or you can take a casual camel safari near the castle?

2. Headfort House School in Kells, Ireland

If you attended a boarding school, you probably won't be keen on staying at Headfort House School. On the other hand, if you've ever had that odd yearning to temporarily reside in a Victorian-esque manor/school, and like to pretend that you're a character in a Jane Austen novel on your days off, then this is the place for you. Spend your days wistfully daydreaming in the ballroom, or try your hand at croquet on one of the school's many sports pitches. It also includes a purpose-built outdoor ménage (whatever the hell that is). #Posh.

3. Love Nest Ranch in Morongo Valley, California

If you and your significant other have ever thought of getting down and dirty in the desert, the Love Nest will probably do the trick. From having complimentary drinks in the Saloon, to enjoying the panoramic views of the valley from the ‘adult swing’, you and your beloved will surely have a ra(u)nchy good time.

4. Vintage Caravan in Oakland, California

This 1964 Kenskill vintage caravan is just so darn kitschy and cute. Regardless of the tiny space, this is ‘glamping’ at its finest. For all the hipsters out there you can borrow one of the owner’s loaner bikes to go for a quick ride around town, or you can just chill out in the ‘big ol’ yard’ with the chickens.

5. Stunning All Bamboo House in Bali, Indonesia

This stunning bamboo house situated along the sacred Ayung River, takes the number one spot as the most unique villa in Bali. Take a dip in the plunge pool and then enjoy an Indonesian feast courtesy of your own private chef. Rest assured, a stay here will be good for the body and soul.

6. Unique artist mirrored house in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

This large artist’s house and studio is completely covered in mirrors inside and out. If you’re scared of looking at your own reflection, this place is a house of horrors. But for all the narcissists out there, you’ll feel right at home.
