Glass Cottage in Iceland
One of my dream destinations and my personal favorite on the list is the glass cottage dubbed Blár. What makes an ordinary glass cottage worth $600 a night is its location. Based in Hella, Iceland, the Airbnb is located in a lava desert in the south of Iceland. The best part, you get to witness the swirling views of the northern lights and slumber under the starry night. Furthermore, there is a Jacuzzi on an outside deck so you’d not really regret shedding money.
The One-and-Only Hobbiton in Matamata, New Zealand
I will be concluding the list with a hobbit house that shall be available for stay beginning next year. However, the One-and-Only Hobbiton (the real-life location of the Hobbit movie) was announced in 2022 and it would have been a blatant crime to miss it from our list. Despite being available for a short duration of time, it is one of the coziest places to spend a night. The bookings for 2023 are closed for now, but if luck rides by your side, who knows you might spend a night in Middle-earth.
We hope you’d fancy one of these Airbnbs. Do write to us about your experience in the comment section if you happen to spend a night in one of the above. Thank you for staying a loyal reader of our magazine as we need your constant support and love in growing. I, on behalf of the entire team at Homecrux, would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
