THE cheapest AirBnB in the UK costs just £8 a night – but you’ll be sleeping in a one person tent in a back garden.
With an additional £1 service charge, it comes with a sleeping bag, air bed and plug socket.
Airbnb host Desiré Cyprien, on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent, has also thrown in a water bottle and a flask for tea or coffee for guests.
Next door to the dark green structure is a special loo tent, featuring a “cat litter-style toilet” with loo bags that guests are asked to tie up and leave next to the back door.
The description says: “Sleep al fresco in the privacy of a backyard, suited to the adventurous solo to experience Sheerness under the stars, near the beach!”
The cheap rental is next to a ground floor flat, which is vacant, and it is just metres away from the beach.
There is also a leisure centre nearby for showers, which costs £2.
There has only been one guest so far, but Constance gave the tent five stars.
She said: “This is a special kind of tent, it is a comfortable bed, I really liked it.
“I swam in the sea in the morning with two lifeguards all to myself in high winds.
“There’s a pool up the road if you need showers.”
Desiré, who has a degree in spa management, currently runs five listings in Sheppey.
One of her other listings is as an airbed in the back of her car.
She said: “My partner was clearing up the weed on the ground, which revealed this decent sized, unused space.
“I’ve always had the idea of listing a tent, seeing this space just made me go for it.
“Also it would compliment Sapphire’s Sheppey Caravan which is also on site, to potentially accommodate a third guest who truly wants to experience Sheppey under the stars.”
She added: “It’s is a new listing and I have had one guest so far.
“She was a lovely lady from London who left me a kind review, visiting Kent on holiday.”
The only other listings on AirBnB which cost a similar price to Desiré’s tent are campsites where users have to bring their own tents.
It is a far cry from the glamorous 16-person pink mansion in the US, which costs £55 per night.
