Unusual Designs of Places To Stay Or Live In

Updated on March 19, 2012

If you could have a day, just one day to experience staying or living in a marvelous yet unusual place, where would it be?

If I could get a day of chance, I would like the experience of living in a tree house. Just like those anime scenes on one episode of "Avatar: The Last Airbender" where a group of people thrives living up on trees where they uses a rope to get up on the small, cozy tree houses. It could be such fun specially when the trees are so tall, and no one doesn't even have the idea that tree houses are up there, just like a mini community amongst the trees, hidden from the world.. What about you? Of these photos, where do you want to go?

If you want to be safe from Mother Nature's wrath, I'd say living in this stone made house would be such a good choice. Looks like it can withstand storms and other calamities. And who knows, this could be a great hideaway for the zombie apocalypse if ever. What do you think?

Found on Fafe mountains in Portugal, this stone house surely attracts tourist because of its "out of the ordinary" design.

A good place to live in. I could think of the houses as hills too.

The first thing that came to me when I saw this photo was, "wow!" Living in one of these houses is like being in a dream, close to nature with those green grasses is just relaxing to see.

And if in case I was a stranger walking on top of those mountains I wouldn't have any idea that there's houses around because the roofing seems like part of the mountain too and is covered with grasses.

Now, just my imagination thou, if only the front walls are covered with grasses or with vines, most part of the house would be camouflage, just not the windows, the inside needs a fresh air.


Of all tree houses or hotels, this one is my choice. At first glance, who would think it was a hotel up in the trees? Because of the mirrored surface, it blends in just right to its place.

And in case you wanna go and see this hotel up in the tree, it could be found in Sweden, just be ready to get through a rope bridge to get into the hotel. This could be a great adventure.

This photo makes me imagine a community up in the trees, buildings and houses connected with rope bridges so people can go to their destinations. No cars or any vehicles of course, just the rope bridge to get that complete experience of being out in the woods.

So, where would you go for a day?

See results

And who would forget a trip under the sea for those who loves the water or the ocean?

This underwater hotel is great and one could see the life under the sea while being on the hotel. Just be ready to spend a lot of money as staying on a Fiji island Poseidon Underwater Resort could cost a lot of fortune.


This is such a paradise. Relaxing or taking a nap and seeing the life under the sea, the colorful corals and fishes swimming by. If the fishes are thinking, I wonder what they think of the people watching them swimming by and doing their everyday business.

      That would be m choice too! I like the green colors as it is relaxing, and maybe just lie down on the grass watching the sky, feeling the gentle breeze. What a life! :)
