5 of the Coolest Properties on @Roomorama.

By Posted in - Roomorama on March 20th, 2012 Zermatt apartment on Roomorama.


During our travels last fall, we had a chance to use Roomorama for the first time for some of our lodging. Prior to booking our short-term apartment rentals with them, Beth and I had only ever stayed in hotels, hostels and campgrounds; though, after getting a chance to live like a local in Istanbul, Prague, Venice and Paris with Roomorama, we were excited to add another lodging option to our repertoire.

Now that we’ve been home for a few months preparing for our next travels, I find myself scouring destinations on Roomorama.com looking for unique and good value properties. Here are five of the coolest places I’ve come across thus far.

Wine House in Graz, Austria

Graz Wine House a Roomorama rental.

This internationally award winning house in the hamlet of Globeregg is adapted from a 200-year-old Kellerstöckl (wine press). The two story studio, which features a loft and a vaulted ceiling, has views the Alps and is near the wineries in Sausal.

Townhouse in Adelaide, Australia

Adelaide a Roomorama apartment.
Whether you got two or eight people in your group, this luxury two story townhouse is a fully equipped vacation palace that overlooks the Gulf of St. Vincent.

Cave House in Koh Pangan, Thailand

An architectural wonder, this luxurious “cave” gets back to nature by combining granite, wood and earth into a three room, three level vacation rental with great natural light.

Loft in Madrid, Spain

This fully renovated architect’s loft sits on a quiet pedestrian street and features two balconies that overlook Plaza Mayor, Madrid’s most emblematic square.

Mountain Chalet in Zermatt, Switzerland

Chalet Heidi offers vacation goers the perfect blend of an old alpine chalet atmosphere with the cozy luxury of a modern apartment that sleeps up to six people.

    Wow all the pictures are beautiful and relaxing! But what I love most is the Cave house, its unique and I think I can feel a fresh air in that house, am I right? Hope I can visit that place.

      @San Diego Chiropractic, I think you are right! But to know for sure about the breeze, I think I need to spend a few nights or a week in it to fully test it out. 🙂

    Wine house in Graza, I just loved it, It is uniquely designed and cave house in cave pongan is awesome. I never been to this kind of a house before, pretty curious to visit. I hope you will get chance to stay in these houses and we can get more clicks of the interior.

    Awesome pictures, Cave is the best to live in, the interior is luxurious and very well designed. Wine house is also wonderful the structure is unique and definitely interior would be awesome. I’m curious to spend some days in this house, thanks for sharing.

    I love these, makes me wonder what else is out there that are just as unique. Why do so many houses, hotels and guest houses have such crappy design when other places are so thoughtfully created?! I hate staying in ugly places, but we do a lot of home exchanging and you get some real gems there too.
