MICHAEL PHILLIPS

No man prefers to sleep two in a bed. In fact, you would a good deal rather not sleep with your own brother. I don’t know how it is, but people like to be private when they are sleeping. And when it comes to sleeping with an unknown stranger, in a strange inn, in a strange town, and that stranger a harpooneer, then your objections indefinitely multiply.

Nor was there any earthly reason why I as a sailor should sleep two in a bed, more than anybody else; for sailors no more sleep two in a bed at sea, than bachelor Kings do ashore. To be sure they all sleep together in one apartment, but you have your own hammock, and cover yourself with your own blanket, and sleep in your own skin.

RECENT FEEDBACK

For with the charts of all four oceans before him, Ahab was threading a maze of currents and eddies, with a view to the more certain accomplishment of that monomaniac thought of his soul.

The more I pondered over this harpooneer, the more I abominated the thought of sleeping with him. It was fair to presume that being a harpooneer, his linen or woollen, as the case might be, would not be of the tidiest.

  • Superhost Joy’s breezy apartment is the perfect place to rest up for adventures in Hallasan National Park—or for an exhaustive study of the best haemultang (seafood stew) in town. In either case, be sure to get up early enough at least once to watch the sunrise from the lighthouse in the distance.

  • This three century old palace has been listed on Airbnb by its residents: the royal family of Jaipur. Host Maharaja Padmanabh Singh is opening his doors to raise money for the Princess Diya Kumari Foundation. Walk-through majestic gateways, wander halls bedecked with mirrors, and discover rooms never opened to the public before. ⁣

  • Enjoy the spectacular interior while you can, because you probably won’t be seeing much of it. Superhost Larissa’s cabin by the beach is perfectly situated for surfing, trail running, exploring tidal pools, and hiking through coastal forest to a prime whale-watching viewpoint. ⁣

  • Jessa, your host at this hut on the Loboc River, is happy to help you plan adventures like a visit to the nearby tarsier sanctuary or a nighttime cruise through clouds of twinkling fireflies. Less assistance is required for a day of lounging in the hammock with a book as the emerald river flows by.

  • As these two discerning travelers can attest, Paul and Angela’s tiny cabin is a cozy home base for exploring Bruce County and the shores of Lake Huron. Two-legged guests might want to start with a breakfast skillet at Aunt Mabel’s Country Kitchen, followed by apple-picking at Smiths’ Apples and Farm Market.

  • Having so much of Porto right outside your windows can feel a little overwhelming. Fortunately, Bruno, your Superhost, is happy to point you toward his favorite ways to get to know the city. One suggestion: grab a Francesinha sandwich and bike along the Douro to the Atlantic.

  • Superhost Anna turned a row of trulli (the region’s traditional stone huts) into a one-of-a-kind house that makes guests of all ages feel like kids again. The location in the heart of the Puglian countryside makes that sense of wonder easy to sustain—it’s within a short drive of so many ancient towns and villages that you could explore a new one every day. ⁣

  • Once you’ve caught your breath at this house in the rainforest, you might find yourself ditching the itinerary to meditate by the waterlily dam. But you’re also a short drive from waterfall walks, views of the Glass House Mountains, and even Sunshine Coast beaches. Kate and Madhu, your Superhosts, are helpful guides whether your journey takes you inward or out.
