Basements are a common Airbnb offering. Many people don’t use their basements very often, and especially if the basement has a private entrance and exit, they can be a great vacation option for people who need a place to stay for a few days. Airbnb has made this easier than ever. If you love to travel, here are five of the coolest Airbnb basements to consider visiting at some point.
1. Wine Cellar Basement Apartment – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States
Over 200 years ago, a French winemaker built this home, using the basement to store his wine. However, nowadays it’s more of an attraction for people who want to experience some of the history of “The City of Brotherly Love.” It’s definitely a great place to stay for a few days, especially if you want to experience Philadelphia.
2. Chic Apartment in the West End – Edinburgh, Scotland
Edinburgh is one of the most well-known areas in Scotland, and it’s definitely a place that tourists love to see. If you’ve found that Scotland is an interest for you, consider this basement rental. It’s chic, understated, and warm, making it perfect for anyone who’s mostly there to explore Scotland’s bold, brimming culture.
3. Mickey’s Movie Manor – Orlando, Florida, United States
The homeowner gave this rental such an interesting title because it’s close to Disney and it has a great home movie theatre. Especially if you’re planning to visit Walt Disney World Orlando, this is a great place to regroup every night, relax a little bit, and get ready for your next day of fun at Disney.
4. 17th Century Canalhouse – Amsterdam, Netherlands
This is such a stylish basement apartment that the owner doesn’t just rent it out to people who want to use it as a bedroom. People can also rent the apartment for photoshoots, as it has exposed brick walls, exposed wooden beams, and a gorgeous glass room divider. It’s beautiful, walkable, and definitely a place to visit at some point.
5. Basement Game Room – Salt Lake City, Utah, United States
Maybe you and your friends want to get away for a few days. You couldn’t do better than this Salt Lake City retreat in Utah. Not only is the entire home a truly gorgeous rental that anyone would be happy to stay in, but it also has a monumental game room in the basement including foosball, air hockey, darts, and a gigantic video game wall.
It might seem weird to put an Airbnb rental on your bucket list, but if you love to travel, it’s something you should definitely consider.
