Airbnb is doing a good job of continually outdoing themselves when it comes to contest prizes. After offering up stays in spooky catacombs, cable cars and converted planes, the apartment rental service is giving lucky contest winners a chance to live in a floating house on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. Yes, you read that right, a floating house, and it’s complete with two bedrooms, a bathroom and an open air lounge area that’s perfect to enjoy the sheer beauty of the location.
The space has no walls, so there’s nothing to mar the perfect views and your neighbours will be the 100 species of jellyfish, 1,625 types of fish, 133 varieties of sharks and rays, and more than 30 species of whales and dolphins that call these waters home. Your backyard is a wonderful coral garden consisting of 600 types of soft and hard coral.
One of Australia’s most famous chef’s Neil Perry (you’ll remember him from all those Masterchef Australia marathons) will prepare a late lunch for the lucky winners made with local Queensland produce. And later guests can get a close look at the beauty of the reef and its inhabitants through a dive with host Pascal. The trip includes provisions for one winner and three guests.
The contest is being held alongside the release of the much anticipated Pixar movie Finding Dory which is set against the backdrop of the reef. Though the prize stay is only one night long, it’s sure to be a memorable one.
All you have to do to enter is tell Airbnb why a little about yourself and why you and 3 guests belong on the Great Barrier Reef and you’ll stand a chance to go on this epic marine adventure.
