You Can Rent an Amazing Literary-themed Airbnb for $17 a Night on World Book Day
Tuesday, April 23 is a very special day for book lovers around the globe. Not only does it mark World Book Day, but it also denotes the day that bibliophiles can reserve a seriously stunning literary-inspired Airbnb for the average price of a novel.
To celebrate World Book Day, 10 Airbnb hosts with homes that come filled with bookish decore, are offering their spaces for just $17, which Airbnb notes is the average price of a book, per night, plus applicable taxes and fees. The homes will only be bookable at that price for a limited selection of dates occurring throughout May, June, and July.
What kind of homes are available? How about this "Great Gatsby"-inspired house in Bridgehampton, New York.
The stunning Long Island estate comes with a heated saltwater pool, a glorious yard to sprawl out on with your glamorous friends, and enough plush space inside to make you feel like a 1920s-era billionaire too. Again, the home will be available for just $17 per night, plus applicable taxes and fees, from May 10 – May 12 and May 17 – May 19.
Not doing it for you? What about this bright, white farmhouse that looks like it’s straight out of "The Notebook" instead?
Located in New Bern, South Carolina, the storybook-style home is an ideal spot for a quick escape from the real world. It even comes with a dock so you can paddle out just like Allie and Noah. This home is available for $17 a night, plus fees, from May 19 – May 22.
Oh, you want to take your love of books international? Then book a stay at this Pride and Prejudice home in Chawton, England.
In case you didn’t know Chawton is the birthplace of the "Pride and Prejudice" novel. In fact, according to Airbnb, the author was a nearby neighbor of this very property and is said to have visited this home socially. Bring your copy and book a stay for $17 a night, plus fees, from May 24–26 and again from June 14–16.
