In recent years, Airbnb has really taken off - and with good reason. Not only does it allow us to save a huge amount of cash in comparison to overpriced hotels, but the Airbnb also appeals to the nosey parker in us all. The idea we get to have a peek around someone else's home is just a little bit exciting, no matter how much we try to deny it.
But the latest home to hit Airbnb offers more of a feast for the eyes than most. The Barbie-themed home in Malibu (where else?) has taken the internet by storm thanks to its incredible - and incredibly kitsch - decor. Fancy a peek inside? Read on.
In the past, there were limited options for vacation accommodation.If you were traveling, you had little choice apart from to stay in a hotel.
And while a hotel stay is a lovely luxury ...There's one major downside. Many tend to have prices leaning toward the extortionate side - making travel essentially unaffordable for many.
Until Airbnb, that is.Founded in 2008, the online travel accommodation marketplace has absolutely revolutionized the industry. Through the site, anyone can book affordable lodging pretty much anywhere on earth.
And alongside the lowered price tag?There's another undeniable advantage. While hotels tend to be rather generic, staying in someone's home is always an aesthetic surprise. But one truly out-there Airbnb has hit headlines this week for its incredible decor.
Let's start with the bathroom.
