Want a unique option for a getaway? How about something fit for an ogre? Be sure to check out the Shrek Swamp on Airbnb, now listing for October.

Remember a few months ago, when Airbnb listed a stay in the Barbie Dreamhouse? I guess you could call their latest listing a bit of a downgrade. A literal, actual swamp. To each their own though, right? It was home to Shrek and Donkey from the Dreamworks Animation film, and it can be home to you too (and 2 others), for 2 nights only.


October 27-29th, 2023. An exclusive two-night swamp stay* for up to three guests.


Location location location. It may be a swamp, but it’s located in the scenic hills of the Scottish Highlands. A secluded location fit for an ogre, or just a big Shrek fan. Don’t forget to read the fine print though. Guests are responsible for getting themselves to and from Scotland. (Fun idea and all, but this trip just got a bit pricey.)

More About the Stay:

Shrek’s Swamp brings a whole new meaning to the term ‘treehouse.’ With its clever use of forestry, charmingly rustic interiors and iconic outhouse, the swamp is certain to offer an experience unlike any other.

Pretty affordable too. For $0 a night,  ‘brogres’ will be able to request to book an exclusive two-night swamp stay* for up to three guests October 27-29th.

Swamp Activities to Enjoy:

  • Relax in the ambiance of “earwax candlelight”
  • Enjoy a parfait (everybody likes a parfait!)
  • Swap stories around the fire until late in the night
  • Enjoy a stack of freshly made waffles in the morning
  • And of course, enjoy the ultimate privacy of Shrek’s trusted outhouse (you know the one)

How to book

Onion and ogre enthusiasts can request to book the Shrek Swamp on Airbnb beginning October 13 at 1 p.m. EST at

Guests are responsible for their own travel to and from Scotland.

A good cause too!

To honor good childhood memories that last a lifetime, Airbnb will make a one-time donation to the HopScotch Children’s Charity, which provides some of Scotland’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged children with respite breaks through nurturing and dynamic holiday trips.

*This two-night stay is not a contest.  Please note, the bathroom is located 20 meters from the main living area in a standalone facility. The property is independently owned and operated by Ardverikie Estate.
