This Two-Story Shipping Container In The West Texas Desert Is Actually An Airbnb
Unique hotels abound across Texas, however, none quite compare to this one in terms of quirky charm. Hiding in a middle-of-nowhere desert town called Marfa, this unassuming shipping container is actually an Airbnb — and you can stay in it for less than $200 a night.
Nestled hundreds of miles away from the nearest civilization, this unassuming shipping container seems to be abandoned at first glance. Further inspection reveals that it's actually an Airbnb — one of the quirkiest in Texas, at that. Listed at only $175 per night and receiving over 50 stellar, five-star reviews, it's an absolute steal that amplifies any road trip through Marfa.
Two guests are comfortably accommodated in the king-size bed. Pearly white linens and elegant, minimalist furnishings create a luxurious space free of clutter to put your mind, body, and spirit at ease.
A full kitchen boasts all the amenities you're used to, such as a stove, oven, faucet, dishes, tea kettle, and virtually everything else necessary to make guests feel right at home. Nothing beats cooking up your favorite meals to be leisurely enjoyed throughout a full day of exploring the rugged desert landscape.
Floor-to-ceiling windows in the living area offer several different views of the mountainous surroundings, each one showcasing its own unique perspective. Asian characters and other equally zen decor only enhance the room's meditative aura and make your stay nothing short of transcendental.
Similar panes exist in the bathroom, where you can enjoy a relaxing soak while gazing out far as the eye can see at remote, uncharted territory. Perhaps accompany your spa day by a glass of wine and good read for a truly blissful experience.
There's even a private outdoor patio! Early risers might catch a glimpse of javelinas traipsing through the lot next door. Add a steamy cup of coffee to the mix, and you have yourself a perfect morning.
Evening views from the porch are no less incredible since the house is located atop Marfa's highest peak. West Texas sunsets are always awe-inspiring, but the splendor is on a whole different level here. Sit outside until dusk to marvel at an unadulterated night sky full of glittering stars.
