The great thing about Airbnb is that it drastically increased the range of accommodation for you and your partner to choose from. Instead of looking at traditional holiday apartments in Barcelona only you now have the possibility to choose between tree houses, boats, castles and many other original options. The only requirement for the host publishing a listing is that the space they are willing to rent out possesses electricity and water supply.
While the concept is not new in the US, Airbnb arrived rather recently in Spain and already offers plenty of original places to stay in Barcelona. Among our favorites, you will find the following:
Stay on a sailing boat/yacht in the port of Barcelona
