Airbnb’s roster of unique lodgings has just added a new star to its lineup: this tiny pod retreat located on a remote area along Scotland’s coast, overlooking the Isle of Mull. Designed by Roderick James Architects, the submarine-inspired, aluminum-clad Airship 002 is located on four acres of expansive greenery, and comes equipped with all the amenities needed to disconnect from life’s hustle and bustle.

The Airship 002, which rents for $168 a night, stands out in the idyllic landscape thanks to its elongated form capped with two all-glass domes on either side. Clad in shiny aluminum, the building has a nautical theme – immediately noticeable thanks to multiple portholes in the walls. Inside the tiny pod, wood paneling creates a warm interior enhanced by an abundance of natural light.

Although the Airship is a compact structure, the contemporary interior design creates a warm and relaxing atmosphere. The kitchen is an open space with all of the amenities needed to create a home-cooked meal. To open up space throughout the tiny structure, space-saving techniques, such as a fold-out table, keep the living area uncluttered.

Located just past the kitchen area, the bedroom features a comfy four-poster queen bed. A pair of portholes over the bed allows guests to enjoy a bit of stargazing as they drift off to sleep.

At the heart of the interior are the two domed glass walls on either side of the pod. A serene seating area with a wood-burning stove looks out over the mountains and sea to the west. On the opposite side, a large writing desk faces the beautiful Sound of Mull. A wooden deck with outdoor seating on the side of the pod offers additional views of the incredible surroundings.
