Airbnb described as the world’s largest community-driven hospitality company, has opened up a whole new raft of opportunities to stay in unusual places that otherwise would have been hard to discover. What we love about Airbnb, is the shear choice and variety of options to suit all budgets. Unlike hotels that are positioned smack bang in the heart of tourist locations, with Airbnb you get to stay where the locals live and hang out.
So we’ve compiled a top 10 list of the most unusual places to stay across the globe, including a house and the entire island to yourself !
