As much as I love stylish hotels my love for Airbnb has no limits. Back in early 2014 I was pretty sceptical. I remember reading one horror story about it and that was enough to put me off.

However, when I spent the best part of a month in Brazil last year during the World Cup the only places we could afford were on Airbnb. We booked a room in a house in Rio and hoped for the best. We’d stalked the host on Facebook and to be honest that probably made us more worried (we never actually met her but some of her Facebook pictures were pretty weird. And when I say weird I mean photos of cannibals kinda weird…).

However, everything turned out great and since then Airbnb is the first place I check when looking for accommodation abroad.

One of the best things about Airbnb is the range of accommodation they have available. Want to stay in a penthouse suite? A shepherd’s hut? How about renting your own island? It’s all possible!

To prove it I thought I’d put together the top 10 Airbnb places adventurers.
