    You Can Enter to Win a Weekend in This Darling Floating Cottage

    airbnb London

    This charming English cottage is a two bedroom houseboat that's owned by Airbnb. It has a private garden and even a dog house.

    If you happen to be in London right now, you can enter to win a trip down the River Thames in this darling vessel courtesy of Airbnb. But you better act fast-- today (May 20th) is the last day for entries.

    What's the occasion? Airbnb is celebrating the Deregulation Act in London. Now Londoners can legally rent out their homes, spare bedrooms and even tree houses on...MORE a short-term basis. Sounds like a win-win for residents and, of course, the site that has grown to become the worldwide leader in unique accommodations.
