Namibia's Skeleton Coast's name comes from the dozens of shipwrecks and bones that litter its shores, the results of seal hunts and whaling operations. The Shipwreck Lodge is inspired by these ships and a destination spot for adventuring travelers looking for one of the most unique places to stay on Earth. There are 10 ensuite shipwreck rooms that feature wood burning stoves, solar-powered electronics, an impressive lounge and restaurant with a large wraparound deck offering breathtaking views of the stretches of sand and Atlantic Ocean. An architectural team led by Nina Maritz has made the lodgings as environmentally friendly as possible going to such extreme lengths as using only wooden nails to build each cabin. Bookings for this once in a lifetime experience are open now with rates starting at $750, all-inclusive.

Montana Treehouse Retreat at Glacier National Park
As kids, we dreamed of building tree houses big enough to live and play in. Today, thanks to Airbnb, such a tree house exists. Located in Glacier National Park is this 500 square foot tree house. A spiral staircase wraps around a giant Douglas fir tree and leads you into the main living area. There are 2 outside deck areas featuring gorgeous views of the surrounding lakes, mountains and forests. There is a full kitchen, dishwasher and stove as well as a bathroom with full sized shower and toilets. The master suite has a comfortable queen mattress and additional sleeping quarters in the common room accommodate up to 4 guests. For activities, there is Whitefish Mountain Ski Resort, Flathead Lake, and plenty of fishing, rafting, boating, hiking and more Montanan adventures.
