New to Host Unusual: Extraordinary Stays from South Africa to Spain

One of the things we find most enthralling here at Host Unusual is the sheer variety of the ‘unusual’ that we encounter on a daily basis, and indeed in all corners of the globe! 

Take this latest colourful cohort of new recruits…You can sleep alfresco under the stars in a mountain retreat and look out over the African wilderness, or venture into the Australian rainforest to an architect-designed Japanese-inspired Zen-styled retreat. 

In the States, you can rejoice in a vintage trailer close to Nashville, or continue your riotous retro journey at a wildly kitsch and legendary Californian resort.

Perhaps cross the pond to Europe and retreat to a minimalist chalet in unspoilt Slovenia, or hop to Spain and experience low-impact and sustainable living in an extraordinary earth dome.

The sky really is the limit!
