An Airbnb host has decided to make the most out of his London garden (as he’s one of the lucky ones to have a garden in the capital). And, no, this doesn’t mean he’s getting some potted plants, chairs and a chiminea. This London entrepreneur has decided to put up a tent in his back garden and advertise it on peer-to-peer house rental site, Airbnb. If this is a genuine listing that gets genuine customers, then this guy might just be a genius.
And it’s quite a nice idea, if you don’t mind strangers living in your garden. The host is also kind enough to give the guest access to the house amenities and a bike to ride around London for free. Great stuff. Until you see how much it costs a month.
This is the moment you know London’s rent prices are f*cked; when you find yourself in a stranger’s back garden, listening to foxes shag through a thin tent and are paying over £500 a month for it. I mean, it’s perfect if you’re one with nature… and it’s probably worth it for the bike alone.
