Check out these geeky good Airbnbs for your next staycation

Renting out an Airbnb with your family or “lockdown housemates” for a safe and fun staycation is a breath of fresh air. It’s cheaper than a hotel room and possibly has the most awesome theme.

Having a unique theme makes anything more interesting—why else would there be so many themed cafes and restaurants in the world? And if you haven’t been to a themed Airbnb, read on and you might just want to snag that booking right away.

Manila’s gaming-themed Airbnbs

Gaming-themed Airbnbs have been getting more and more popular lately, what with last year’s smash release of the PS5 and the worldwide phenomenon of Animal Crossing.

Is it any wonder that gaming-themed Airbnbs are popping up faster than you can say Resident Evil Village? Over in Quezon City, the Game & Chill Pad quaint unit that has the significant title of being the first Airbnb in the Philippines set up for the enjoyment of gamers. Boasting an Xbox One console with more than 70 games, this unit can be the perfect place for your next staycation if all you want to do is to beat your friends at Xbox games and stream Netflix to your heart’s content.

Also in Quezon City is the Backpackers Hub conveniently located near SM City North Edsa. If you’re on the Playstation side, then look no further than this listing. It has a PS4 with games suitable for kids and adults, but you can also bring your own games and take advantage of the 55-inch LED Smart TV.

Non-gamer? No problem!

Marvel fans, rejoice! 

With Wandavision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier releasing on Disney+ these last few months, Marvel fans were rightfully excited for the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But if the wait for the Loki series is getting a bit too much for you, you might consider heading over to Taguig to spend a few days at a very special unit. 

Boasting the title as the first Marvel-inspired listing in BGC, the unit can fit up to six superfans to stay and enjoy all the Marvel-flavored decor. With a wall mural of the Avengers greeting you as soon as you enter and a life-sized Spider-Man chilling from the ceiling, Marvel fans can geek out in peace.

Or live out your dreams of attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in a cozy unit nestled in Tagaytay. With tasteful decorations representing all four Hogwarts houses, Ravenclaws, Hufflepuffs, and Slytherins no longer have to suffer Gryffindors having all the merch and attention. 

There’s even a little rendition of the train and a place set up to look like a booth in the Three Broomsticks! Bring your own Butterbeer—there are plenty of recipes online—or even make a few pints in the kitchen! Potterheads will surely enjoy a magical weekend here.
