Take relaxation to new heights when you stay overnight in this original Texas shipping container tower
Modern life has its conveniences, but it also has its fair share of stress. Chances are your phone is constantly vibrating with the latest news, work emails, traffic alerts, etc. And even if you’ve only glanced at your phone occasionally, the stress of so many alerts and updates may have left you feeling a little exhausted. An escape from the hubbub of city life could probably do you some good.
Step into The Air Castle, a secluded oasis near Ladonia, Texas, where guests can put down their screens, stretch their legs, breathe in the fresh air, and rejuvenate in the natural world. The quaint Airbnb rental is a contemporary treehouse made up of four repurposed shipping containers. Notable features include five balconies, a screened porch with a hot tub, and a sixth-floor crow’s nest perched about 50 feet above the ground.
The Airbnb offers two bedrooms, one bathroom and can accommodate up to four people overnight.
“The treehouse has all the amenities of home and many only exist in your dreams. You can be comfortable all year round with a wall of 20 inch windows where you can watch birds and squirrels feeding 20 inches off the ground from the comfort of power recliners, ”the listing states. “Each of the 5 balconies offers unique perspectives of nature and shade. Relax with a morning coffee on the balcony adjacent to the kitchen or take steps towards the shaded crows nest to swing in a hammock 40 ′ off the ground completely surrounded by super tall railings. In the evening, light a fire in the covered fireplace and let the nature and the crackle of the fire relax you.
On the vacation rental’s Airbnb page, reviews from past guests praise Insta-worthy accommodations.
“If you are planning to stay here, book it,” wrote Claire, who stayed in June 2021. “This place is truly remarkable and one of a kind. Every detail has been carefully planned. We have never stayed in such a beautiful and relaxing space.
Another satisfied tenant enjoyed the natural scenery and wildlife.
“Not only with the bird feeders right outside the living room window, you can also sit on the rooftops of the 5th or 6th floor to hear the birds sing for miles,” wrote Todd, who stayed in May 2021. “It was really cool watching so many birds and squirrels come together, and even saw several pigs at night and early in the morning. Every room and level has a great view and there are balconies on either side of the treehouse for you to enjoy. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a peaceful city break. ”
