Unique Vacation Rentals

Vacationing doesn’t need to mean roughing it in a tiny tent or going to the same theme park every year. One of the best things you can do is to research all of your options. More and more unusual and out of the ordinary vacation rentals are getting press.

These four rentals are perfect for couples, families and friends, who are looking to get out of town without doing the same old activities every year.

You can guarantee your family an interesting time!

1. Malibu Airstream Trailer

Get back to nature in this retro Airstream trailer in a nearly secluded setting in Malibu, California. The “flying cloud” is situated atop a desert hill with a 360-degree view of the Pacific Ocean, with a view of Catalina and Santa Barbara Islands in the distance. Visitors can relax and get stunning views of the Santa Monica Mountains during the day and shooting stars at night.

Amenities include the Bose Acoustimas sound system and a queen-sized bed. The trailer is located close enough to Los Angeles for a day trip but far enough away that visitors won’t feel the hustle and bustle of the city.

2. Hawaiian Treehouse

Get tropical with this Swiss Family Robinsonesque treehouse both little and big kids will enjoy. This two-level treehouse has plenty of room for relaxing, featuring a hanging bed, a wrap-around porch and a bathroom with floor-to-ceiling windows.



Even showering is a little rustic here; the indoor-outdoor shower brings guests into the great outdoors, an awesome amenity in a house 360-degree views of the tropical rainforest. Natural rainwater flows from the shower and never need to feel trapped indoors.

Guest can travel to the local reserves and national parks, as well as five volcanoes.



3. Thermal Glass Igloo

Enjoy the outdoors without leaving the cozy comforts of home in a luxurious glass igloos. Featuring stunning views of the surrounding stars and the aurora borealis, the Hotel Kakslauttanen has structures with geometric glass roofs in the heart of Urho Kekkonen National Park in Finland.

Igloos have thermal glass walls and ceiling that keep the structure warm during cold nights. The igloos also feature frost preventative technology, so you’ll always have a great view of the night sky after you turn out the lights. Hotel management even rings a bell when the sky is at its clearest, so visitors always know when to peer outside.

The main lodge has the largest smoke sauna in the world, a restaurant, an ice bar and a chapel made of snow.

4. Glamping on an American Safari

Camping gets an upgrade in this American Safari. The Resort at Paws Up features high-end platform tents that reimagine the idea of “roughing it”.
