Airbnb Cottage Rentals: Affordable Travel Luxury
I recently got the chance to stay at a very special Airbnb accommodation in the hinterland of Brisbane called The Old Surgery Cottage Accommodation, a converted old vet clinic. And I can say that holiday homes and hotels don’t quite meet the same standard and all around experience that this Airbnb gave.
I’ve stayed in other Airbnbs before, and I’ve noticed a trend with accommodations, especially the Airbnb cottage rentals… They seem to try to out-do hotels, going beyond the hotel standard at competitive prices. Offering all the amenities you could think of to feel at home, with exceptionally high standards of cleanliness and comfort while also providing that warm, local vibe.
The Old Surgery Cottage Accommodation is immaculate. The cottage has a very minimal, modern style that feels homey at the same time. Huge airy windows bring the light into all rooms. Outside the windows, Australian native plants and sub-tropical palms surround the property. Sitting on the couch, I really felt like I was outside.
The cottage is newly re-furnished. Everything felt shiny and clean. As an allergy sufferer, this was my most pleasant stay in Australia. It’s the little things that this cottage thought of that make this stay so pleasant; the beautiful guitar, the record player and library, the tea and coffee selection, the sharp knives, the coffee press, the strong hot water shower head, the loaf of bread in the freezer, the adorable milk jug, and the list goes on.
Not to mention the owners were absolutely lovely when we got the chance to spend some time with them. It was especially interesting to get a sense of time and place of the area. Seeing and experiencing their piece of history.
For the same price as a mid-range hotel, you can stay at this beautiful Airbnb cottage rentals with 2 bedrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom, outside terraces, all overlooking the 5 acres of beautiful garden.
I’ll definitely be using Airbnb more often through my travels. If you haven’t signed up yet, go for it! Use this link and get US $25 off your first accomodation. Airbnb P.s. Many places are under US $25 especially in other countries. My next Airbnb will be in Malaysia! Happy travels!
