It’s not all everyday experiences on everyone’s favourite accommodation website.

While modern hotels worldwide are having their own resurgence (anyone noticed how their rooftop bars are suddenly popular again?), AirBnB is still a topnotch travel accommodation choice, not just because it’s often the cheaper option, but also because of how an AirBnB rental can make you feel part of the destination. There are, however, experiences and accommodations available that transcend the ‘live like a local’ experience and offer wildly imaginative, immersive fantasy living instead. Check out these incredible AirBnB rentals around the world.
