Staying in rentals while you’re on vacation is great. If you don’t like the idea let me change your mind.

On vacations and trips, we love staying at the most amazing and fancy hotels, mainly because we get great services and treatment. But sometimes, when we’re traveling to interesting places and we want to discover more, staying at a hotel is not the best solution.

When it comes to traveling, people get the full experience if they live like locals and visit the things only locals know about. Staying at local accommodations and unique places can be a life-changing journey for anyone who’s seeking an adventure.

If you are one of those people, we’ve found some great and truly UNIQUE Airbnbs, check them out:
