Waiheke Island Tent House

Surrounded by the lush vegetation, the Waiheke Island Tent House is the modernist's way to get in touch with nature. The structure mimics the simplicity of a pitched tent with its A-frame form, while its clean lines and sharp angles lend to a more contemporary design. Clad in a black tin, the exterior's dark facade is contrasted by a crisp white palette on the interior. The ground floor consists of a kitchen, living area, and sculpted spiral staircase that leads to a lofted bedroom. A wall of glass exposes both levels to natural light, as well as views of the rain forest setting. Although the name may make you think you're going to be roughing it, the closest thing you'll be to an actual campsite is when you're roasting marshmallows on the outdoor fire pit.

  • Bird Island

    Located in the Caribbean just off the coast of Belize, Bird Island is a secluded off-grid paradise. The private island is just a 20-minute boat ride from the mainland, which is included in your stay. Accommodations for six are spread out between the main house — equipped with a kitchen and living room — and two separate cabanas, powered by solar and wind generators. Even the water is collected and filtered on-site. The island isn't the only thing that's self-sufficient. Guests supply their own food and entertainment, with swimming, snorkeling, fishing, and kayaking right outside your doorstep.

  • Solar Eclipse Stay

    As you might have heard, August 21 will mark the first total solar eclipse seen across the US in almost 100 years. This Solar Eclipse Stay is the ideal way to experience it. You'll start by spending the night of the 20th in a geodesic dome in rural Oregon, joined by an astrophysicist and a professional night sky photographer. The next day, as the Moon prepares to pass between the Earth and the Sun, you'll take to the skies in a private jet for a truly unique view of this rare celestial event. Not available for purchase, one lucky winner will get to enjoy the experience courtesy of Airbnb.
