It happens to the best of us: the inexplicable itch tells us that it is time to throw away the shakes in the 9-5 routine and get away for a while. Whether you have worked too hard or you are simply tired of starting with the same four walls all the time, it is nothing like a change of landscape to make you feel up-to-date and revitalized. But why settle for a boring chain hotel when you can travel outside the box with a unique home-from-home? The term vacation rental may not be new to you, but you may not have considered these strange and wonderful alternative spaces:
Remember Lost, the TV show where a lot of strangers are stranded on a mysterious island after their aircraft crashes for no apparent reason? Relive the experience of crashing in the twilight of a marooned airplane while staying at the exotic 727 Airplane Jungle Home in Costa Rica. Offering all the adventures with no fear of the actual crash landing in the wilderness, this vacation rental has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a polished teak deck overlooking the decks and a fully equipped kitchen. There is also an on-site masseur and private chef for the authentic Robinson Crusoe experience.
2. Want shoes was here
If you are looking for a fabulous retreat, this property is ready to sweep your feet. Nestled in the heart of New Zealand's Tasman region, Bootet is exactly what it sounds like: an actual start. Complete with Wi-Fi, central heating and an idyllic courtyard, this bed and breakfast is the perfect romantic getaway for two. While it is not ideal for racial holidaymakers, this cozy cottage will hit the socks of more whimsical and fun travelers.
3. Berlin budget
In good days, people's Euro-tripping on a small budget would have to stack in dingy hostels or if they were lucky, crashing out on the couches by accommodating friends (or strangers). No longer! Two business owners now offer you the chance to stay in a square foot shack for the first $ 11 a night. Similar type of playhouse can be expected to find a small child's bedroom, the bright red wooden box can be turned upright if you feel like standing and lying flat if you want to pump up the air bed and get a (good?) Night sleep. Best of all, they allow pets! Let's hope you are more of a Chihuahua than the Great Dane person.
4. Time to reflect
Are you the type of traveler who takes many selfies? If so, you'll love Mirror House in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Not only is the outside outside the property covered with mirrored glass, continuing inside the home theme with a vigorous black and white color scheme, wall-mounted mosaic tiles and modern light refractory chandeliers. Mirror House is probably not suitable for the superstitions or the vampires, but is a beautiful, well-located oasis that requires accommodation for up to ten people (despite having only one bed, but you know what they say about smoke and mirrors).
If a regular vacation rental is more your speed, there is certainly plenty to choose from, but when you tire of the daily template, it's always fun to imagine flying to some of these outlandish places.
