Most people are happy to have a nice swimming pool and beautiful views when they go on holiday, but for those seeking unique vacations, these properties could be right up your street.
There are many homes available across the world with weird and wonderful themes and décor. We take a look at just a few:
Gingerbread House, Geyserville, California
The Gingerbread House at the Isis Oasis Retreat Center is designed to be a cosy and comfortable cottage for your stay in the USA. It sleeps two downstairs and one in the loft, and has stained glass windows with LED lights inside.
The cabin is situated amongst the trees and has a wood-fired oven and picnic table outside. Guests can also enjoy a pool, sauna and hot tub, and for £84 a night, this is one experience not to be missed.
Cluedo house, Aviemore, Scottish Highlands
Inshriach House’s layout is coincidentally similar to a Cluedo board, and with ten bedrooms, there’s plenty of exploring to do.
The picturesque house and estate are often used in films and photoshoots, which makes it a pricey £315 per night.
Located in the Cairngorms National Park, the Edwardian property is one of the greenest historical holiday homes in Scotland, heated by biomass and fuelled by solar panels.
The house sits in the heart of a 200-acre estate and is just five miles from Aviemore.
Inside, you can expect dark panelling, Persian rugs and roll-top baths.
The Mirror House, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
The Mirror House is the work of an artist, who lives and works in the property. Despite it being in a quiet suburb, the exterior is covered in mirrors and the theme continues inside, which includes original artwork and furnishings.
If you wish to stare at your own reflection all day, then you’ll need £116 a night. However, you can enjoy a room with a 42-inch plasma television, free wi-fi, a sunken bathtub and walk-in shower.
You’ll also have access to the whole house, which includes a home cinema.
Nature Observatorio Treehouse, Costa Rica
If you like the great outdoors, this holiday experience is perfect. At the end of a 1.5-mile walk through the forest is the Nature Observatorio Treehouse. Guests are given a short climbing lesson before ascending to their accommodation.
The £144 a night treehouse has two bedrooms and a living area upstairs and an ecologic bathroom downstairs. Rainwater is collected and supplied to the property and the toilet is compost-making.
Meals are delivered via a pulley system and you’ll find monkeys, toucans and other exotic animals waking you in the mornings.
