Airbnb steps it up

Ever dreamt of staying in a Disney-themed home for a holiday? It might be closer to reality than you think, thanks to Airbnb.

To celebrate the new partnership between Disney and Airbnb, the popular holiday rental site has released a list of the best Disney-inspired homes across the globe.

In conjunction with their partnership and the upcoming release of The Jungle Book, Airbnb is offering $100 off all magical treehouses that resemble the themes in the film.

With soaring turrets, secret gardens and storybook bedrooms, the homes on the Disney list will allow families, friends and couples to plan a dreamy escape for a Disney fairy–tale getaway.

  1. Treehouse at Kiklauea Volcano, Hawaii/$380 per night

The ultimate jungle experience obviously starts with booking a night (or five) in a tree house in Hawaiian rainforest. The house is built right into the foliage of the rainforest, which extends into Hawaii Volcanoes National Park offering even more adventure for your stay.

For just $380 a night you can sleep under the trees and wake up to the jungle sounds before exploring the surrounding hiking trails through the different landscapes within the volcanic area.
