Welcome Beyond hopes that your next vacation exceeds even your wildest dreams. Founded by two Berlin-based brothers, the unconventional travel site specializes in hand-picked vacation rentals from French B&B's to modernist homes in Austria, tree hotels in Sweden, and remote geodesic urts in Chile. Visitors can search for accomodations by location, region, or interest, inlcluding unusual vacations. Each property includes a brief bio about the owner and/or property manager, numerous photos — we spotted the BL3 Floor Lamp in the bedroom of this vacation home — and details on pricing.
