One of the great things about Airbnb is the versatility of the properties which guests have the pick of. In cities across the world travellers can choose to stay in luxury apartments, quirky yurts, converted listed buildings or jungle treetop houses. In London especially, there are thousands of unique listings which are guaranteed to keep tourists flocking to the city.
With Airbnb competition rising on a daily basis, it’s important for hosts to show off the very best of their properties on their profiles with professional photography and profile management services.
We’ve rounded up some of the quirkiest, interesting and beautiful properties that are available to book in London at the moment.
Ship Cabin, Tower Bridge
Where else would you have the opportunity to stay in a historic 19th century ship? From £90 a night you can stay in the captain’s cabin of the De Walvisch, one of Britain’s finest examples of a Dutch klipper. With a central location and a gentle rocking motion to send you on your way to a great night’s sleep, this cabin room will give you plenty to talk about when you get home.
Converted Church, Highbury
This spacious one bedroom flat is easily one of the most unique places to stay in London. The church conversion has utilised the character of the building, such as the arched windows, to create a totally modern and contemporary space. With a central zone 2 location, guests will have to book far in advance to secure this great Airbnb property.
Narrowboat, Little Venice
There are quite a few narrowboat listings in London – some more exciting than others – and we believe this to be one of the most spectacular. If you really want to stay somewhere a little different but still have those home comforts, (including a log fire) this modern refurbished boat is pure luxury on the waterways.
Water Tower, Central London
If you’re a fan of TV’s Grand Designs then this is the perfect opportunity to have a firsthand experience of one of the programme’s renovations. The only water tower in central London has an astonishing 10 storeys to explore, offering amazing views of the city you can’t find anywhere else.
