The Directory of Unusual Places to Stay



Hello! I´m Jess, the founder and administrator of - the unusual accommodation directory - has been relaunched (November 2018) with a new look and improved functionality. We are striving, more than ever, to lead you to take unique and exciting holidays. I was motivated to start the site 8 years ago from my own inspiring experiences of staying in special one-off places and wanted to bring them together in one place to help others do the same.

For ideas from our own holidays, QA properties and our favourites places look here here. If you want to know a bit about my story it's here.

We intend to give all profits, that are not needed to improve the website, to charity twice a year. Click here for more information on the contributions so far. By visiting and listing on you are not only benefitting yourself but others in need too!

We have added an Availability Search page and Late Deals/Specials page to the site to help you find what you are looking for. These don't include all properties we feature but it is somewhere to start if you are looking for particular dates.
