5 of the Best Off-Grid Rentals on Airbnb

For those who value the peace and quiet and want to relax and recharge their batteries over the next few months, heading to an off-grid rental is a great idea and, as luck would have it, the guys at Airbnb have got some first class off-grid rental properties to choose from.

Check out 5 of the Best Off-Grid Rentals on Airbnb below:

Berber Tents, Merzouga, Morocco

The perfect way of experiencing the nomadic Berber way of life, this truly off-grid offering will be quite unlike any stay you’ve ever had. You will be residing in these traditional tents which are crafted from camel hair and, though basic, provide plenty of protection from the desert elements. You’ll be able to sample traditional food and music courtesy of the superb hospitality of Airbnb superhost, Mohammed and his family, and it will be a whole new experience from start to finish. It has no fixed address which means you’ll need GPS coordinates to find your way there. A real off-grid adventure. (From £68 per night)

Longyear Beach Cabin, Longyearbyen, Svalbard

Nestled somewhere between Norway and the North Pole, Svalbard is well known for its rugged and frozen terrain, and it is also home to polar bears so this is one off-grid rental where you’ll definitely need to keep your wits about you. The Longyear Beach Cabin is situated one of the world’s northernmost inhabited areas and, during the winter months, it’s a wonderful place to take in the mesmerising Northern Lights, whilst in summer it has the equally as unusual 24-hours of daylight. The Airbnb host Elvind’s home delivers unparalleled views and the perfect spot from which to explore this vast and unrelenting arctic landscape. (From £216 per night)

Skypod, Calcu, Peru

These incredible looking, transparent pods can be found, quite literally, hanging off the edge of a mountain in Peru’s Sacred Valley, outside Cuzco. A stay at the Skypod will involve a climb or a hike with zip-lines so this off-grid property isn’t one for the faint-hearted and only the adventurous need apply and they are really suitable for anyone with a fear of heights because they will send vertigo into overdrive. (From £339 per night)

Eco Bamboo Hideout, Bali

To be quite honest, the cats alone were enough to sell this Eco Bamboo Lodge in Bali to us here at Coolector HQ but when you throw the breathtaking views into the mix as well, it’s definitely one of the best off-grid properties that Airbnb have to offer. Offering an experience quite unlike any other, this Hideout is not some fancy hotel, and it really is an adventurous experience, rustic and authentic right in the middle of Balinese village life. It is the ideal spot for long-time travelers, lovers of nature, a spiritual-minded people, trekking-lovers, backpackers, artists, musicians, and eco-enthusiast to have their own unique Bali experience. (From £124 per night)

Brother Islands, El Nido

Billed as the only private island rental property in El Nido, this really is an exclusive retreat and the property is suitable for up to 16 people so if you and your friends and family want to get away from it all on one of the world’s most breathtaking beaches, this is the perfect Airbnb property for you. There are all sorts of things to keep you entertained during your stay such as scuba diving, fishing and hiking tours and for those looking to recreate their own version of The Beach (with fewer deaths ideally), look no further. (From £358 per night)
