Until NASA sends the next astronaut to walk on the moon, only Neil A. Armstrong and Edwin E. Aldrin, Jr. can say they’ve ‘been there done that’.

But thanks to companies like Airbnb, we can now stay in homes that look like they belong on the moon so we too can say we’ve been to the galaxy and beyond (hey we’ll take what we can get).

From a replica of a spaceship to a flying saucer, these accommodations take ‘unique homes’ to a whole new level.

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing, Airbnb hosts are offering travelers to stay in their interstellar themed homes from $11 per night plus applicable taxes and fees.

These homes are offered at this price for a limited selection of dates occurring throughout August, September, October and November.

Let’s take a look at the space inspired homes below.

Here’s your chance to stay in a once in a lifetime spaceship modeled after Apollo 11. To boot, the host, Peter, built this capsule from scratch! You can thank your lucky stars this house has all the necessities, plus you can lie in bed at night and peer through the window above- stargazing and imagining you’re flying through space. Take in the beauty when the sun sets and during the day enjoy a hike near Mount Cook.
