9 Unique Accommodation Ideas for Your Next Vacation ...


Going on vacation is your opportunity to get away from it all, so why not consider some unique accommodation ideas to make it extra special?

Unique accommodation ideas allow you to move beyond generic hotels and apartments, and experience vacation living in a new way.

Over the years, I have stayed in some pretty great places.

The experiences don't always go well, but then that is part of what experimenting is about.

1. Yurts


Yurts are one of the most popular unique accommodation ideas here in the UK.

Despite the weather, we can't seem to stay away from them.

I don't know about other countries, but yurts are part of a 'glamping' craze here.

As you can probably guess from the name, this is camping, but it is meant to be a bit more glamorous.

Whether you stay in an apparently glamorous yurt or you take yourself all the way to Mongolia for one, there is no denying there is a little hidden charm to yurts!

2. Tee Pees

Tee Pees

Let's stay with the whole outdoor theme for a while.

Sure, tee pees probably dredge up memories from your childhood that are slightly cramped and sticky.

However, I know I would love to stay in one because they will make me feel a little bit wilder than I actually am.2

I wouldn't advise trying to construct your own tee pee.

I tried it once, and I lack the dexterity required to get something like that right.

By all means try using a simple version for camping to make things easier, as some stores offer tents in tee pee form.

3. Canal Boat

Canal boats aren't common everywhere by any means.

Come to Europe, however, and you should find renting one quite easily.

Ever seen Rosie &


It really wouldn't surprise me if you haven't.2

Well a holiday in a canal boat is a little more exciting than the life Rosie &

Jim experienced.

The movement is slow, but it is a good water-based accommodation starting place for those who don't like the ocean.
