London's floating home
Airbnb has created a floating cottage on London's famous River Thames. The listing, designed by architects and twin brothers Nick and Steve Tidball, features two bedrooms, one bathroom, a living room, dog kennel, a book collection and a private garden.
As the logo on the home might suggest, Floating Home at Number 1 is owned by Airbnb and available for one evening as part of a contest. The lucky winner and up to three friends, will board the impressive feat of construction this Friday and be treated relaxing massages before dinner is served by Robert Ortiz, the Michelin-starred head chef of Lima and Lima Floral.
The unusual property celebrates the passing of new rules that allow Londoners to open their home to travelers and is further proof of the unstoppable Sharing Economy, Simplexity, and Collaborative Consumption trends.
