10 Airbnb Honeymoon Rentals That Are Out of This World
Couples are travelling together more nowadays, so when the time comes to planning the honeymoon, no country seems special anymore. With Airbnb, however, adventurous couples can still visit their favourite countries, but experience something totally out of this world. We give you 10 Airbnb listings that will make breathtaking honeymoon rentals.
1. Treehouse in Atlanta, USA
Set amongst lush greenery in intown Atlanta, this suite of three treehouse rooms, connected by rope bridges, are beautifully furnished with antiques and natural artefacts. Wake up and fall sleep to the sounds of nature around you and still be minutes away from civilisation! If you love the outdoors but rather not do the camp thing, this is the prefect solution for you.
2. 14th Century Palazzo in Civita, Italy
Casa Civita is a 14th century palazzo that sits on underground caves, etruscan thombs and a Roman water cistern in Civita di Bagnoregio, a well-preserved town in central Italy, and accessible only by a foot bridge. Imagine soaking in that underground pool, or enjoying the view under the Italian garden as you dine. It’s great for families too, since there are three bedrooms in the enchanting place right out of a fairytale.
3. Houseboat right beside the Eiffel Tower, Paris
Docked at the Port de Suffren, which is a World Heritage Site listed by UNESCO, is this 100-year-old houseboat that is a mere five- to ten-minute walk from the Eiffel Tower, Museum of Modern Art, Palais de Tokyo, and many other must-see sites in Paris. It’s a small, cosy studio, but beautifully furnished with everything you can find in a normal hotel room, and more! The outdoor deck is the perfect place to be seen on the Seine, in my opinion.
4. Hidden Villa at Canggu Beach, Bali
Surfer couples, we have the listing for you. In this two-storey private villa located at Canggu Beach, you can have a full sized kitchen, with a rear yard and a plunge pool. But who needs those when you’re a short walk away from the beach as well as the popular Echo Beach, and in close proximity to local warungs and cafes serving international cuisine. Have a fulfilling day outside or spend in indoors in privacy. Your choice.
5. The Green Windmill at Oia, Santorini
When you think of Santorini, you envision whitewashed stone houses against the vast blue Aegean Sea. Take it one level higher and stay in a windmill. The Green Windmill is spacious and modern, with views of the vineyards and the sea. Just looking at the photo of The Green Windmill taking during Oia’s famous sunset is making my heart beat faster. Your honeymoon photos would be so gorgeous.
6. Four bedroom riad in Marrakech, Morocco
If you’re honeymooning in Marrakech, you obviously love the colours and architecture so unique to the place, so you should stay in a traditional Moroccan riad! The lovely townhouse has its ubiquitous central courtyard as well as a huge roof terrace. Nearby, you can find bazaars, restaurants and gardens. If you’re travelling with family, this beautiful riad is excellent.
7. Oceanfront haven in Swansea, Australia
Set on a private 130-acre wooded peninsula surrounded by the crystal-blue waters of Great Oyster Bay, Thalia Haven consists four ancient-stone and wood cottages that sleeps eight. An hour’s drive from Hobart Airport, this gorgeous house is designed by a prize-winning team of husband-and-wife architects, and comes with your own exclusive golden sand beach. Be warned, though. You might not want to leave this place.
8. Luxury Houseboat in Amsterdam, Netherlands
For a true Airbnb experience, stay in someone’s home! And home in this case is a spacious houseboat that lies on one of the most beautiful canals in the city, and is surrounded by historical buildings and cosy cafes. The Haarlemmerdijk shopping streets are also nearby, with small, peculiar shops offering a variety of unique goods. What a romantic experience it must be, sitting up on the deck and just people-watching while you sip coffee together.
9. Private cave house in Uçhisar, Turkey
Located on the most private side of Uchisar and surrounded by the magical ancient caves, this art residence is perfect for couples looking for a peaceful stay in Cappadocia. The house is a beautifully restored property, with a wonderful view of the Erciyes Mountain and a horizon dotted with hundreds of hot air balloons. Imagine waking up to a view like that every morning.
10. Timber House near Reykjavik, Iceland
If your idea of Iceland is of great undulating lakes and wild Icelandic horses running with manes blowing in the wind, you will find it is all true. Located on the outskirts of Reykjavik beside Lake Elidavatn, this timber house is right in the middle of all that and is a great location for those who are on a self-drive holiday and wish to experience the city of Reykjavik and surrounding countryside. And get this: there is a horse stall connected to the house and horse riding can be arranged from January to June.
