Airbnb host lists tropical oasis for £27 a night – but its two garden tents

A host on Airbnb has offered up her glam garden for spectators looking for a place to stay during the Commonwealth Games – which she has dubbed a "tropical oasis".

The unorthodox venue offers a "unique camping experience" to up to six lucky guests who want to kick back and relax without feeling like they are based behind a house in Washwood Heath, Birmingham.

Airbnb host Brenda is offering guests an "exotic" stay in her garden which features three tents with "lots of natural water features" and "seating areas".

To make the listing even more of a hidden gem, the homeowner said visitors will "have the entire place" to themselves – minus the house.

But for just £27 a night, the dreamy staycation also includes access to the ground floor bathroom throughout the trip, reports Birmingham Live.

Unbelievably, the space is still available to rent for the opening ceremony of the 2022 Commonwealth Games on July 28.

The listing was spotted by Manchester resident Jordan Lewis while trying to find a place to stay during the tournament.

Jordan wrote on Twitter: "Trying to find reasonable accommodation in Brum for the Commonwealth Games because they're all inflated at £300+ a night.

"Found one on Airbnb, only to click on it and it be a tent in someone's garden. At least it's an 'oasis'.

"Still can't get over the advert saying 'entire place to yourself'…it's a tent, Brenda.

"The worst bit is if you're cold, it costs an extra £10 to rent out the log burner."

While some may think this listing is a wind-up, Airbnb is accepting card payments to stay there.

Additional costs to guests include hiring a 'fully-functional BBQ' for £10 – which thankfully also includes a bag of charcoals and lighting fuel.

Brenda warns those interested that she is "not Mother Nature" and has "zero control" over the weather forecast.

But added that gazebos can be set up for 'added protection', should it rain.

Glowing reviews written by guests staying in Brenda's 'peaceful' garden hailed her as a 'friendly' host.

All seven of them enjoyed their stays, with one writing: "It really doesn't feel like you're in the city when you're there."
