Ready the canons mateys and get out your best Jack Sparrow costume because you can now rent your very own pirate ship(!) on Airbnb – and yes, it will shiver your timbers.
Say “ahoy” to the “Pirate Ship“, a 65-foot long ship with not one, but two berths located on the Mississippi river minutes away from Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
It’s owned by Dan, an Airbnb ‘superhost’ (that basically means he has a really great rating) from the States.
His ‘one of a kind’ digs will currently set you back $300 (£244) per night, and features everything from a gangplank to upper deck hammock and a hideout. It has room for five people (all included in the rate) but if you want to rent the whole thing out for a party, there’s room for +20.
Inside, you’ll find a really cool antique-style map painted on the ceiling, but if that’s too preschool for you, there’s the opportunity to rent paddle boards and kayaks – great to get into that yo-ho-ho spirit. Oh, and it also has a super cosy fireplace, ideal for roasting ‘smores in the winter months.
Practical modcons include the use of a shower, tub, large kitchen, a few couches, themed lighting (don’t forget we live in the age of the millennial) and of course, WiFi.
‘This was such an awesome night away for my husband and his friends! Basically a surprise for his birthday, to try and reminisce on his favorite, pirate-themed birthday, as a kid,’ wrote Christine, who snoozed on the vessel back in May. ‘I think the ship took everything to the next level – and it was totally above and beyond what we hoped it would be!’
Shawn, who stayed on the ship in September 2018, said that once you get to the ship, you won’t want to leave.
‘This is a one of a kind experience, that was a total blast!’ he said.
The hosts have paid attention to every detail, and the pirate decor is outstanding. There are costumes, props, and everything else you can imagine to get you into the pirate mood, said one guest from the States.
And if you decide to holiday in Minneapolis, don’t forget to check out all the retro foodie hangouts, the stellar lakes, and if you are a bookworm, a pilgrimage to St.Paul to explore where writer of the Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald was born.
