If you're hoping to hide from the rest of the world for a while, this magical Airbnb just outside Santa Barbara, California can help.

Located in the woods on a three-acre plot, sits the mirrored glass cube, which its owners say was created with "great intention, creativity & love." The unique retreat includes the private glass cottage, which has a queen-size bed inside, as well as use of shared amenities on the property.

"The glass house is a gorgeous modern design with two walls of thick solid glass, which gives the illusion of being outside, but the feeling of cozy protection," the owners wrote on their Airbnb listing. "The space is creekside under giant sycamores, native oaks. Outside mirrored walls give the illusion of being invisible as it reflects the surrounding woods and grove. The glass house has a very luxurious, organic feeling, brilliantly bringing the inside and outside worlds together in beautiful harmony."

The stay also includes the use of the cube's outside lounge kitchen, a dreamy redwood outdoor shower/bath, along with a pool, hot tub, and hammocks for relaxing. The hosts even throw in some fresh eggs from their chickens, which you can scramble for breakfast. And though the property is completely off the grid, it's located just minutes from the beach, hiking trails, wineries, and downtown Santa Barbara, so you can be in the middle of all the action in a snap. The showers, hot tub, and pool are all common spaces, shared with guests staying at the property's other cottages. However, you can book the entire grove for yourself and up to four guests if you want total privacy. Best of all, the property is dog friendly, so you can bring your four-legged friend along for the fun, too (for an extra fee).

"This has been such a passion of mine, sharing my land," the owner shared. "Letting nature be of benefit to people who are making their beautiful memories here. It's an honor to have visitors be part of the unfolding story of my home. I've marveled at the care and respect people bring, so a place like this can exist for the enjoyment of all — including the trees, the critters, the intact ecosystem I get to be a hostess to."
