Unique accommodation is our favourite kind of accommodation these days and if you’re a fan of birds and nature, then this will really be up your street.
Named Airbnb’s most popular rental, Kitty Mrache’s Mushroom Dome Cabin is “a geodesic dome loft and a large deck in the trees, you’ll feel like you’re in a tree house in the woods”.
Shaded by Oak and Madrone trees and next to a Redwood grove, you can enjoy the outdoors from the deck. In the summer, the rental is cool and “in the winter you might get to hear the creek running below”.
The Californian rental has a 5-star rating on the booking site and has amassed the most bookings. So why do guests fall in love with the property?
Set on 10 acres, guests can relax on the deck, hike in the woods, spend time at the nearby beach and gaze up at the stars at night.
An animal lover’s paradise, hummingbirds populate the area and Kitty also has a number of goats, chickens, cats and a miniature dog for visitors to spend time with. You can also bring your own four-legged friend to stay too.
Although you’re nestled in nature, you’ll also have access to a 32 inch flat screen and a DVD player with over 80 movies. A small refrigerator is provided, as well as a blender, hot air popcorn popper, French coffee press, kettle, salad spinner and dishes. Free WIFI is just an added bonus here.
Located just 10 minutes from Aptos Village and downtown Santa Cruz, you’ll never be too far from civilisation. The accommodation sleeps three people and is available from €114 per night. For more information and to book, visit www.airbnb.ie.
