You Can Now Stay At Shrek’s Swamp On Airbnb


Get ready Shrek fans, because an extraordinary opportunity is about to drop right into your swamp-loving lap! Airbnb is turning dreams into reality by recreating Shrek’s iconic swamp, and you can actually spend a night there. But don’t blink, because you’ll need to act fast and cross your fingers for some good luck.

Mark your calendars for October 13th at 1 p.m. ET, because that’s when the magic begins. Shrek aficionados will have the chance to request a stay in this enchanting, moss-covered, and delightfully murky paradise. Nestled in the picturesque Scottish Highlands, this is your shot at spending two nights in Shrek’s very own home.

The catch? Booking dates are limited to October 27th to 29th for a two-night stay, accommodating up to three guests. Here’s the twist – the cost for this once-in-a-lifetime experience is a grand total of $0. Yes, you read that right. Airbnb is generously making a one-time donation to the HopScotch Children’s Charity on your behalf. But, before you pack your bags, note that your travel expenses are on you.

Now, let’s talk about how astonishingly spot-on they’ve recreated Shrek’s swamp. It’s like they plucked it right out of the movie, from the charming house to the quirky furniture and the “BEWARE” signs. But don’t just take my word for it.

For those lucky enough to secure a booking, prepare to immerse yourself in this swampy oasis. Light up an earwax candle, kick back in Shrek’s recliner chair, and indulge in some parfait. And here’s the kicker – you’re not confined to the house. Venture outside, ignite a bonfire (maybe share a few swamp tales), and don’t forget to visit Shrek’s iconic outhouse. Oh, did I mention the pièce de résistance? Donkey is your host (apparently, he’s filling in for Shrek), and yes, you can bet your waffles there will be waffles.

But wait, there’s more! Airbnb has a history of making fans’ dreams come true by offering stays in iconic (sometimes fictional) locations. Earlier this year, you could book a stay in a real Malibu Dreamhouse in honor of the Barbie movie. In 2020, Airbnb gave people the chance to sleep over at The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’s mansion and even spend a night at the last remaining Blockbuster. In 2021, Home Alone enthusiasts could reserve a night at the McAllister house.

So, prepare to step into the whimsical world of Shrek and experience a fairy tale adventure like never before. Your swampy getaway awaits, and it’s going to be an ogre-sized blast!
