Nothing is guaranteed while on the road, other than adventure.

From a taxi to a parking lot, if you’ve got the pension for the outrageous, these peculiar Airbnb postings might just be the thing you’re looking for.

If you’d like your own slice of paradise, check out this Airbnb listing for a cozy bed in the middle of a parking lot for $11.50 a night.

The hills come alive in this chilly abode, an actual igloo in Austria for $60 a night.
Though the listing isn’t taking reservations anymore, at one point folks could land in this spacious airplane apartment for a couple of nights. The jet came complete with all the essentials, including a bathroom and kitchen.
Shell out some cash (about $300 a night) to “sea” this humble abode and live like Poseidon at this listing -- built to look like a giant sea shell.

You don’t have to get in trouble to stay at this nifty Airbnb listing. This giant dog house doesn’t come with Clifford the Big Red Dog, but it may have your tail waggin’.


Perch amongst the Tropicbirds in this Nicaraguan tree house for $185 a night. The home comes with a great view of the forest and ocean.

Sleep under the stars in this bubble home. There’s no need for curtains when staying in this clear-walled dome in France.
You might not have to know the gingerbread man to stay at this gingerbread house, but you should know that the home reportedly survived the soundwaves of Jimi Hendrix’s guitar. The superstar apparently once stayed at this Airbnb cottage getaway.

Want to win a stay for two at a shark aquarium? Thanks to this listing, now you can. 

The listing better speaks for itself: "Imagine yourself submerged in three million liters, in an aquarium ten meters deep, alongside 35 of the most majestic creatures on Earth: sharks!" 

With all the bells and whistles, the "underwater" bedroom comes with a 360-degree view of the tank. 

Apparently, the stay would also include entertainment as the host Fred Buyle, a world record-breaking freediver, underwater photographer and shark enthusiast, will take a dive and dance with the deadly beasts. 

In the Aquarium de Paris, located by the Eiffel Tower in France, the room will later serve as an observation deck for biologists.

For $49 a night, you could sleep in a “swanky” New York City taxi. This listing includes the comforts of a full-sized bed and is located 10 minutes from Times Square. The taxi's host, Jonathan, notes, “I can interact with you if you would like, but also respect your privacy.”
