5    Best Place Ever for $9790

I’m not sure why this house merits a $9000 price tag, and I am also not sure why it’s the “best place eva,” as the listing boasts. The hosts ought to add a few pictures, or at least chance their description to more than a two-word sentence fragment with no punctuation! I might go for that if it was a $10 tent stay on someone’s farm, but I’d never invest almost ten grand in a vacation rental like that! Is the whole thing a gag? Maybe!

The outer deck offers a great view of the harbor and city of Sydney, and even includes a hot tub. This is a floating mansion!

    Number 9 looks like it should be where number 1’s price is lol! I can’t afford to stay in any places like these but I sure do love looking! One of my favorite things is looking at houses online. I rent but architecture has always been a hidden obsession of mine. Going to bookmark this list so I can google more images of these places later!
