20+ People Who Got a Huge Surprise in the Apartment They Booked

Booking an apartment is always a lottery where expectations don’t always meet reality. However, the people in our article were lucky enough to not only get a cozy shelter, but also gain way more than they bargained for.

Bright Side editorial checked to see which awesome apartments and houses turned out to be better than expected.

“I booked a house in Miami to celebrate my birthday. It looked like paradise.”

“I booked a room while traveling in Spain. I got up to go to the bathroom and came back to this.”

“I rented a shelter in southern Utah that was made by dynamiting holes into a Navajo sandstone butte. Off the grid and breathtaking!”

“The entryway to an Airbnb we stayed at last week”

“The room I stayed at a couple of months ago had the sweetest cat.”
