  1. Unusual? Call me traditional but I love my colorado Luxury Vacation Rentals. I use Travelenvogue.com and Jerry’s list has seels by oweners too. Sometimes, I use VRBO which I believe is ran by Home AWay. But I like my TEV!

  2. My vote is the windmill rental in Portugal. I am planning a trip to Europe in September and think it would be a unique experience. Not many people get to say they stayed in a windmill!

  3. There is an interesting rental I know of in Jakarta where you can rent out a Boeing 707 (Not to fly on just to sleep in over night). It’s up there for a novelty.

  4. I know of a similar hotel with a 727 plane fuselage that has been converted to a room. It’s in Costa Rica near Manuel Antonio State Park. The place is called Hotel Costa Verde. I didn’t get the opportunity to stay here on my last trip but did stop by for drinks and it’s a cool sight to say the least.

  5. Thanks for this coveted list. I would like to include West coast in Barbados . This pristine beach island flaunts great natural beauty, from the wonder of underground caves to the beautiful vistas and the tropical colours of flora found across the island! Believe me you will love this place (and its people).You can book some of the best luxury vacation rentals online.

  6. My vote is for 1926 C&O Caboose. The pics are amazing and I really want to visit this place. Windmill rental seems to be very natural and beautiful … I like it too.
