With vacation season right around the corner, I have discovered a very unique Airbnb that is out of this world. First of all, you don't have to go to Africa to experience staying in an African tent. This dream escape is only minutes from Texarkana!

For those of you who enjoy camping but desire more of a luxury style setting as in glamping, the Five Star African Tent is known as "The Nest" is a thing of beauty that sits above the valley in Hot Springs, Arkansas.

This spacious one-bedroom, one-bath luxury tent has an open living area with a 55-inch HDTV, with Dish and free wifi, and a custom down-filled sleeper sofa and matching ottoman, and an oversized chair.

You'll sleep like a king in your very own comfortable pillow-top king-size bed with a ceiling fan. Listen to your favorite songs through the customized Alexis video speaker and the kitchen area is fully stocked with a refrigerator/icemaker, an oven, and a microwave with an insta pot. Want to cook outdoors? No problem, there is an outdoor grill too on the outside deck.

The Nest bath experience is like a mini-spa with a soaking tub and a handheld sprayer with matching robes. And if that's not enough you can relax in your very own 7-person hot tub overlooking the wooded forest valley below. There's even an outdoor shower that rises up between the deck! And finally, there is a private toilet room with a heated seat bidet.

The Nest is a one-of-a-kind experience for honeymooners, couples retreat, or just a quiet place to get away from the everyday stress of life. You know I'm always about finding new unique places to stay and this one is perfect.

With so many people looking for vacation ideas, this one is just a short drive from Texarkana and will be one to remember.
