Awesome Local Airbnb That (surely) Aren’t Just For Tourists

Laura Kebby -


If you’re anything like me, in that you tend to walk past amazing houses and just simply wonder what they look like inside, then never fear, Airbnb is here.

Although usually reserved for tourists, Newcastle has an abundance of weird, wacky and totally Novocastrian-esque Airbnb’s that you have probably never even heard of. Why? Well mostly because you live here but sometimes it’s nice to play pretend and fantasise about having a holiday, even if you can only afford the petrol to get yourself to a place with free parking.

So, here are some quirky, cool and straight hot fire Airbnb options you may have never even heard of.

100% Newcastle

The terrace is an open plan living and dining with Oregon hardwood flooring, ornate Victorian fireplace, brick feature walls, original brass hardware, ceiling fans in all rooms and a new skylight to capture natural light.


Van life

Experience van life in Newcastle with our love child “Chucky”. Wake up surrounded by nature and step out onto Australias world famous beaches. Fitted out with everything you need including real posturepedic mattress, table and chairs, cooking equipment and all blankets, sheets, towels, doona, pillows etc are provided. Surfboards are also available to guests:)


Stay at an art gallery

If your looking for a unique experience, this large room is above a contemporary art gallery in Newcastle in a warehouse conversion on the fringe of the busy Newcastle harbour. If you are looking for a unique and friendly place to stay, this is the place to be. Enjoy breakfast in the courtyard or go out for breakfast at one of the local cafes. Spend the afternoon after your day of adventures in the sunny courtyard or relax upstairs in your comfy room.


Travel back to 1880

It is a renovated terrace built in 1880. The room is at the front of the house on the ground floor with access via the front door. This means you do not need to enter the main part of the house at all if you don’t wish to. An ensuite adds to the privacy of the space. Access to a lovely peaceful garden via french doors provides a lovely place to sit or enjoy a glass of wine.


Bring on the romance

The house sits on the edge of Islington Park-walking/cycling tracks. Around the corner from amazing coffee shops, vintage, boutique and retro shops, pubs, restaurants, main bus stops and train station. The studio is villa style, directly attached to the studio apartment next door, although completely independent and private.


I’m on a boat

Give yourself a unique experience. Arrive on board to complimentary tea/coffee. Relax on deck with tranquil river views and sunsets. Gently roll to sleep in your cosy en suite double bed cabin listening to soft lapping water. Ten minute walk to Newcastle CBD with many cafes and restaurants on the waterfront. Suitable for adventurous, lovely, social singles, couples and business people seeking a life less ordinary and wishing to step into a different comfort zone.
