From elaborate treehouses to fairytale homes, the VRBO and AirB&B craze has taken hold worldwide. Check out this boot home in the video to the right. And in the Business Insider España article titled “From a boot and a stable to a dog-shaped house, these are 6 of the weirdest Airbnbs in the world” by Andrea Gómez Bobillo and Qayyah Moynihan, you can take a look at some of the craziest homes people have built. If you have a unique property, consider making it into a vacation rental. Or, if you have room on your property, add unconventional lodging to expand the attraction to your home.
Of course, you don’t have to have a super quirky home like these. You can turn your fairly average-looking investment into a short-term or holiday rental. It just needs to have the amenities folks are looking for and the location that is near to where vacationers want to be.
