Although Airbnb and other similar home rental services understandably surged during the COVID-19 pandemic as people looked for a safe, socially distanced change in scenery, it seems searches for Airbnb listings aren’t slowing down anytime soon, even as worldwide travel slowly opens back up.

But if staying in a standard old spot just feels, well, a bit boring, the insurance pros at (yes, that’s really the company name) have compiled a list of the weirdest Airbnbs around the globe — and since all options are open for future booking, look no further for endless travel inspiration.

Ranging in price from roughly $1,475 per night to an undeniably budget-friendly $19 nightly fee, the top 30 list includes an iconic cube house in the Netherlands for just $35 per night, an old train caboose in Virginia for $99 a night, and a stunning bamboo cottage in Bali that somehow runs only $44 a night. Of course, “weird” is certainly subjective, as there are few people who wouldn’t immediately jump at the chance to stay in a secluded hut nestled between palm trees in Bali, but they definitely are all unique, no doubt making for a travel experience you won’t soon forget.

The team took liberties to create a list of their top five favorites among the bunch, from a $215 per night bubble suite located in Valle de Guadalupe, Mexico’s wine country, to a dreamy tropical treehouse in Hawaii that’s perfect for couples. There’s also the stunning seashell house in Isla Mujeres, Mexico, for $300 a night, an entire private castle in Galway, Ireland for just $185 per night, and a literal igloo that gets remade out of actual snow each year in Finland by the owners for just $139 a night.

Dream travel plans? They’re all here, just one booking away.
