When it comes to architecture, there’s just something magical about a round-ish structure. In the case of this octagonal yurt-style home, the cathedral ceilings and circular floor have amazing acoustics, this Airbnb host calls it a “sound healing temple.”

And the temple lacks nothing! There’s a full bathroom, a full kitchen, multiple futon beds to sleep on, and a wood-burning stove. If the weather is nice, you can enjoy the fire-pit outdoors. Plus the musical instruments inside the yurt give you a chance to enjoy sound healing during your stay. What do you think?

Romee & Ruud were indie folk musicians traveling the Netherlands in their amazing green VW bus, but had the desire to put down some roots. So they built a wooden yurt from all kinds of recycled, reclaimed and thrifted materials.

The inside of the yurt is typical studio-style with a loft bedroom and oodles of plants. One of the unique features of this home is that it’s designed to be taken apart and moved if they ever need to relocate — not unlike the Mongolian yurts that started this round home trend centuries ago. What do you think?

This is the Yurt Treetop Escape in Australia where you can vacation via Airbnb!

Although you’ve probably seen many yurts with canvas exteriors, this one is timber-framed (my personal favorite). It has 12 sides and you’ll find a comfy bed, full bathroom and a kitchenette inside. It sits in rainforest paradise and the handmade picnic table outside is a perfect place to enjoy a meal. Get more details below.

Could you live in a yurt? Enjoy the pictures!
