If you love staying in unique accommodations, I have THE place for you in Carolina Beach (which is basically considered part of Wilmington, NC). For Week 19 of our Trying New Things Challenge, Gabe and I took a road trip here for the weekend and got to stay in this beautifully converted shipping container that is located just two blocks from the beach! Until recently, I didn’t even realize shipping containers could function as lodging, but apparently, repurposing them is quickly gaining popularity as a way to create eco-friendly living options. Another bonus, this one we stayed in is pet-friendly. You can find the details about this shipping container here – be sure to use my Airbnb referral code to receive $40 off your first booking!
It had everything we needed and we loved how they made such good use of the space without making it feel cramped. Sasha approved of the space and quickly claimed the couch as her own.
Stay tuned for my full travel guide for Wilmington and Carolina Beach coming later this week. I’ll be highlighting some wonderful pet-friendly businesses that we visited, along with our outdoor adventures!
What’s the most unique accommodation you’ve stayed in? Let me know below. Later this month I will be sharing about our top 10 unique Airbnb stays, so stay tuned for that.
