Airbnb is one of the best things to ever happen to travelers. This sharing economy platform has made it incredibly easy to people rent their extra space (from a spare room to an empty house) to others. And, while Airbnb is known as the low-key, economical way to travel, it also has some incredible, one-of-a-kind accommodations.
