Being able to rent out homestays for the perfect getaway has entirely reinvented the holiday experience. For the uninitiated i.e. the noobs, homestays are basically a new style of accommodation and can be cool places to stay, where people let out a room or their entire apartment to those travelling to their side of the world.
If you go to Airbnb (World’s largest Home-stay rental website) and go through their properties, they’ll more than surprise you. Homestays aren’t just about finding a bed to crash in, but also finding the most unique ways of putting up in a place. Of seeing a new city or country, from right in the middle, rather than the distant balconies high up from a hotel.
Be it the location, the place or the fact that they just scream “unique”, here are a few properties that take the idea of homestays to a whole new level.
