This Floating Home Sits Atop the Great Barrier Reef
And you can win a chance to stay there, courtesy of Airbnb.
Airbnb has allowed people to sleep with the sharks or in Van Gogh’s bedroom—now the site is offering a once-in-a-lifetime experience to live and sleep atop a coral garden on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. A group of up to four can get the chance to spend one night in a floating home, plus enjoy a scuba dive on the Great Barrier Reef, a snorkel tour with a marine biologist, and lunch on a coral sand island prepared by famous Australian chef, Neil Perry.
The floating home features two bedrooms, three beds, and one bathroom. It has all the essentials (shampoo included!) and it’s pet-friendly, too. And, of course, there are “house rules” in the listing from, “No clownfish jokes,” to “Spot all 13 resident sea turtles,” to “If you fall out of bed, don’t forget your mask.”
The whole trip will take place in July 2016: if you want to enter (and if you’re 21 and over), you’ll have to go to the listing page, click “Enter to Win,” and write why you and three guests should “belong on the Great Barrier Reef.” A panel of judges will choose the best submission based on originality, creativity, and “spirit.”
