A CHILD’S playhouse listed on Airbnb for a joke has been booked by a family — paying £500 for the night.
Father-of-five Jason Kneen built the 8ft by 6ft (2.4m x 1.8m) structure in his garden during lockdown.
He then advertised it on the popular travel website “for fun” — but didn’t think anyone would stump up £500 to stay.
The playhouse cost him around £3,500. It boasts a balcony, slide, ladder, trapdoor and internet access.
The loo is in a nearby replica Doctor Who Tardis.
App developer Jason, 49, of Ludgershall, Wilts, who is making other facilities available, said: “We thought nobody would be interested. But last weekend we got an inquiry.
“They’re staying on Saturday. The husband said they have two children, aged ten and five — they’ve just been going on about it.
“There’s little bunk beds inside. It’s all open, it’s just a small space. We’re going to keep listing it — if we get few of these it will have paid for itself!”
