We all love a relaxing stay, either with a loved one or alone for a much needed solitude. Now that lockdown restrictions have finally been eased, we can once again enjoy living in a home that is not our own!
Canberra Weekly journalist Abbey Halter has compiled the 5 most trendy Canberra Airbnb’s that you can check out if you’re looking for a unique stay.
Romantic Gypsy Retreat
$ 95 / nat
Description: A sustainable gypsy paradise! Polly has transformed her handmade caravan into an enchanting and unique home away from home, fully equipped with everything you need – including heating and a cozy kitchenette. Take a leap back in time and enjoy the captivating charm The Gypsy Caravan exudes.

“Polly’s gypsy caravan is a real treat. The first thing I noticed (and loved) when I stepped inside was the smell of REAL wood – you know that smell of sauna? Next, the scent of fresh jonquils was in a vase. The parquet floor was warm and beautiful to feel barefoot, even in winter. The kitchen counter is a monument of ‘wood’, a rich reddish-brown, thick, with knobs and solid as. The bathroom is perfect, proving that one does not really need a “vanity” when the stylish kitchen sink is half a meter away. The Cinderella toilet works like a charm. The bed is comfortable – I have not slept so well for a long time. The gypsy carriage is hidden away behind the main house, so it feels quite private. The stained glass windows provide more privacy again. I felt safe. Cocooned. Thanks, Polly for making sure I had everything I needed. Oh, and I loved your pesto! “
$ 141.43 / nat
Description: This Airbnb is funky, modern construction at its best with floating oak floors, a recessed porcelain kitchen sink and the stylish part, in my opinion, the cosmopolitan balcony with modern circular porches! You have the whole apartment to yourself to enjoy the incredible architectural design and there is even a special offer on a free bottle of South Australian wine (with conditions).

Irma’s little house
$ 97.29 / nat
Description: This small house in the heart of old Canberra is the perfect private getaway, easily within walking distance of the bustling Manuka Village. The place’s antique decor and vintage style create the ideal atmosphere – its quirky character is to die for! The cherry on top is that dinner and breakfast can be arranged by the owner upon request.

“Our stay was just amazing. The house was amazing !! Jon and his wife allowed us to visit chooks and horses and do things that will create lifelong memories long after the stay is over.

“My boyfriend and I had such a great stay in this amazing apartment. The decor is just amazing and when you think it could not get better, there are Aesop products in the bathroom. Daniel’s communication was great and check in was easy. If you are traveling to Canberra, Braddon is the place to be and Daniel’s apartment has the best location for all the best restaurants. We would definitely love to return in the future. “
