10 Amazing Vacation Rentals Around the World

Thinkstock

Tired of the same old cabin in the woods every summer? Beach house not floating your boat anymore? Wait until you see these adventurous rentals from around the world.

You can book houseboats (with crew), castles, even private islands on a weekly or daily basis. Many of the properties on our list fit large groups comfortably and are quite affordable, especially if you split up the nightly rate among members of your group. Just don't forget to check the cancellation policies, and be mindful of taxes, cleaning and other fees, which can inflate your cost.

Take note of the website reviews, too, in making your choice, but remember that rental reviews, like restaurant reviews, often paint a widely divergent picture. Have a look.
