Airbnb co-founders, Brian Chesky and Joe Gebbia have come a long way since bringing in short-term lodgers to make up the cost of their increased rent back in October 2007.
Like most start-ups, theirs began as a solution to a personal problem. When the two flatmates needed some extra cash and a design conference in San Francisco meant every hotel room was booked up, they quickly purchased a few inflatable beds and business was open!
Fast forward to May 2015 and Airbnb now has 1.2 million listings worldwide – including 9000 boats, 2800 treehouses and 4000 castles.
We’ve pulled together 9 out of the ordinary stays that are high on our Airbnb wishlists.
