Italian treehouse with the peekaboo bathroom

Sometimes I take virtual vacations via Airbnb, and often find myself in some of the coolest vacations spots imaginable. This time I journied to the heart of Tuscany to find a treehouse called The Black Cabin. From the Airbnb listing:

The extraordinary interiors were entirely designed, exclusively, by interior designer Claudia Pelizzari from the Archiglam studio of Brescia. Claudia wanted to create a glamour and ultraluxe cabane, playing with contrasting colors and natural fabrics such as linen and cotton from biological cultivations, using only materials of great value, in unusual combinations, such as Canadian cedar wood, glass and steel.

…And it is here, for you, our new House on the tree, the must of Piantata: the Black Cabin. Space of escape, the secret of happiness, ideal place to regenerate and stop the time, dream for a romantic elopement for two.

But the coolest part about this treehouse is the sexy peek-a-boo shower situation:

Yes, that's a shower stall that's doing double-duty as a headboard! This took me a minute to wrap my mind around, but now I'm kind of digging the idea of this whole peek-a-boo shower situation. It's an unexpected sexy bedroom arrangement, that's for sure.

Here's a look inside the bathroom. You got a little bidet and toilet action there.

But enough about the bathroom, let's check out the rest of the room and the amazeballs view:

  1. Oh, I totally would go for this. I would even build a shower like that in my own house. Waking up early would be way easier if I could watch my husband shower first thing in the mornings!

  2. I am going to Toronto in a month and I want to use AirBNB for the first time. Suggestions?

    • Start saving… I rarely found anything on there cheap enough to be worth it instead of a hotel and, when I did, it took people forever to get back to you. Also, book EARLY! Like a month or 2 early…

    • I have just used it for the first time a month ago, it was easy to use, I had a great experience, one that I thought was MUCH better than a hotel (I stayed on a sail boat). BUT, that being said, I think it all depends on the people you hook up with — the owner of the boat was super cool and a very good communicator.

    • My husband & I used it for part of our European honeymoon (two weeks in England, Paris & Germany)–we got places in Paris & London. We had GREAT experiences! The place in London was a bit further from "downtown" London (we were in Camberwell, but it was nice and quiet), and the place in Paris was awesome, just a block from the Sacre Couer Basilica & only $95 a night!

      We loved it, and it was really nice to pay less than a hotel and have a place you could cook, too! Honestly, our only complaint about the entire thing was that the bathroom was a bit musty in Paris.

      That said, I have heard some horror stories, but I think that could happen with any place. I would definitely recommend checking out the hosts reviews and talking to the host.

  3. Con…. My hubby spends way too much time in the bathroom and I don't want him watching me shaving my legs or bikini line…. That's not sexy no matter how you spin it.

    • Haha my hubby and I share the shower half the time. Strangely, he's never had any issue with me bending over to shave my legs ;-)

  4. My mom and my brother stayed at a hotel in Japan that unexpectedly had a peekaboo shower situation. Plus there were a bunch of mirrors, so you couldn't *not* see the shower! One of them had to leave the room for the other person to use the bathroom.

    The funny thing was that most of the other people staying at the hotel were businessmen, so there may have been some awkward roommate situations going on. :P

  5. If I ever go to Italy…I want to stay here.
    Also, peekaboo showers? No biggie! We shower together half the time anyways.

    1 agrees
  6. My hubby and I almost always shower together… why waste water? ;)

    2 agree
  7. This post could not be more perfectly timed – I had just decided yesterday to honeymoon in Santa Fe NM, but was overwhelmed at the options for lodging. Airbnb looks like a great way to get good pictures and reviews of fun Casitas to stay in!
