Airbnb is known for its weird and unusual letting options. From treehouses and converted double-decker buses to medieval castles and mansions.
North Wales has endless rental options for people hoping to visit the area, or those wanting a mini-break to enjoy the incredible options on their doorstep. And now, the company has pledged $10 million (approximately £8.1 million) to people who want to build their own eccentric rental homes.
The funding is part of a project the company has created to make “100 of the craziest and most unique property ideas”, as reported by the Insider. Anyone who wants to apply has until July 22.

Airbnb said it will accept submissions from architects, designers, and everyday people. If successful you could be given $100K (£81.5K) to bring the ideas to life.
Once the project has been completed, it will be rentable on Airbnb’s “OMG!” category. Submissions will be judged by the celebrated architect Koichi Takada, designer and fashion icon Iris Apfel, Airbnb VP of experiential creative product Bruce Vaughn, and Airbnb host Kirstie Wolf.

Brian Chesky, CEO of Airbnb said: “We’re in 100,000 cities. Very few people can think to type in more than 20 places [into a search bar]. So what happens? Everyone ends up going to the same places. Everyone goes to Vegas and Miami and New York and Paris and Rome and London.”
We previously reported on the ‘out of this world’ flying saucer Airbnb. The small campsite in Redberth, near Tenby, is home to some of Wales’ most unique holiday homes – including a jet, a Pacman dome, a UFO spaceship and more.
The rental was deemed so incredible that it even appeared on the Airbnb advert. You can read all about the space here.
We also reported on the six North Wales hotels on the list of UK’s top places to stay in Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice awards. This saw several places in North Wales make the top 25 lists for the UK. It included five in the resort of Llandudno.
