I have no idea why anyone would stay in a hotel when there are literally Airbnb rentals anywhere and everywhere. Especially if you are looking for a unique experience. From a potato shaped Airbnb, to this transformed shipping container Airbnb - you can truly enjoy a one of a kind vacation.

You can ship your kids off to their grandparents and head to Benton Harbor to stay in an actual shipping container. As you will see in the photo gallery below, this is not a typical shipping container. This Airbnb has been completely transformed to provide you with comfort in a totally private setting, yet still close enough to town should you need anything.

The Shipping Container Pad is located on a secluded wooded area in Benton Harbor. The cozy container accomodates two guests and features one bedroom and one bath. Please note there is no running water, this is definitely a camping/glamping experience. There is a porta potty on the property, and according to one customer review - it is very clean. You can check out additional reviews here. From all accounts, people love this place.
