The Geodome, nicknamed “Black Beauty,” sits near Lake Travis in the Texas Hill Country and consists of four levels of glorious architecture with stunning views all around. While it may look like a chic version of Darth Vader’s Death Star on the outside, the inside screams sophistication.

But it will cost a pretty dime – $ 670 a night. It can accommodate up to 14 guests.

“As kitsch as the 1970s kit exterior might seem, this five-bedroom geodome is packed with modern amenities like soaking tubs and high-end fixtures,” boasts Conde Nast Traveler.

The house is among the most interesting Airbnbs in Texas, although it is a bit new to the “cool” table. Others include a mining ruined loft house in Terlingua, a treehouse in Dallas, a small cabin in Dripping Springs, and many more according to Trips Discover.
