If your travel destinations include staying in a sensitive place, this snake-inspired Mexico property – arguably one of the most surreal rental properties in the world – should be for you.
Quetzalcoatl’s Nest – named after the feathered Aztec snake god Quetzalcoatl – is an incredible piece of architecture spanning 40 acres and resembling a giant snake’s undulating terrain.
It was designed by the Mexican architect Javier Senosiain and is partly a sculpture park and partly a residential complex. One of the 10 apartments can be rented through Airbnb. There are no doors, the rooms are connected by winding tunnels, and guests can climb a flight of stairs to get into the snake’s mouth for a fascinating view.
