Stay In A Shipping Container

  • Parents Only

By: Phoebe Ackland, ellaslist

Shipping container homes (literally just houses made out of recycled shipping containers) are a design coming out of New York that are as cool as they sound. Now, couple David and Janet have listed their ground floor shipping container apartment on airbnb- and you can stay there!

Described as “sustainable, comfortable, wonderful living” in Brooklyn, you’ll stay in a fully furnished shipping container, complete with kitchenette, bathroom, rooftop access, small book library- all in prime location near pumping bars, funky Williamsberg galleries, grocery stores and a gorgeous community garden pretty much right next door. This is the 1st legal shipping container home of its kind- a true accommodation experience.

Seriously Funky Accommodation

Heading to New York? This shipping container can accommodate a couple with 2 children amongst other combinations, and could make you the coolest mum around in terms of family-holiday-accommodation-picking.
Oh, and it’s only $297 AUD per night! Check out the gorgeous photos:
