You Can Live Like An Ogre In A Real-Life Airbnb ‘Shrek’ Home
If you’re looking for a fun and unusual fall getaway, plus you happen to be a major Shrek fan, Airbnb has you covered. Travelers will have the chance to live like the famous animated ogre in a real-life version of his swamp home from the DreamWorks movie franchise.
According to the Airbnb listing, Shrek’s sidekick, Donkey, is “swamp sitting” while the ogre is away and he has decided to welcome up to three guests for a two-night stay from October 27th to 29th. “This mud-laden, moss-covered, murky-watered oasis is a perfectly snug spot to escape from village life and embrace the beauty of nature,” the description reads.
The live-in tree stump includes two beds but you’ll have to do a bit of traveling to get there. Shrek’s Swamp is located in the fairy tale hills of the Scottish Highlands so you’ll have to book a flight. However, staying in the unique property is free and during your visit, you can:
- Relax in the ambiance of “earwax candlelight”
- Kick your feet up with a parfait.
- Stay up late swapping stories around the fire.
- Enjoy a stack of freshly made waffles in the morning.
- Embrace the ogre lifestyle, as the toilet, sink and shower will be located “off-site,” about 20-meters from Shrek’s Swamp.
You can request to book the stay beginning Friday, October 13th at 1:00 p.m. ET. This special promotion also benefits disadvantaged kids in Scotland through a donation Airbnb is making to HopScotch Children’s Charity. Because deep down, Shrek is all about the love.
So get yourself some plane tickets, pack your dirtiest clothes, and watch out for Lord Farquaad. You can see detailed photos of Shrek’s Swamp in the gallery below:
