Booking.com Creates the Avo-Condo, the World’s First Avocado-Shaped Accommodation

Holy guacamole! Avocado fans from around the world have the unique opportunity to stay in an avocado-shaped condo, available exclusively on Booking.com on July 29

NEW YORK, NEW YORK - JULY 15, 2019 - If the avocado has smashed its way into your heart, then get ready to guac and roll - for the first time ever, you can stay in one! In celebration of National Avocado Day on July 31st, Booking.com, the digital travel leader connecting travelers with the widest choice of unique places to stay, a range of must-do travel experiences, and seamless transport options, has created the World’s first Avo-Condo – an avocado-shaped camper.

Located at Campbell’s Cove Lookout at Sydney’s Circular Quay for a limited time, the Avo-Condo is a custom-built, self-contained condo, which resembles half an avocado on the outside and is complete with avocado-themed furnishings on the inside - all with a world-class view.

For two nights, lucky travelers will have the chance to live the ultimate millennial’s dream and experience a once-in-a-lifetime sleepover overlooking the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House inside a giant avocado! Guests will also enjoy a hamper of avocado-themed goodies during their stay.

The Avo-Condo will be available exclusively on Booking.com for two nights only - July 31st (National Avocado Day) and August 1st - so ‘avo’ fans must be quick to avoid missing out. At 9:00 am EST on Monday, July 29th, consumers across the globe will be able to book one of the two nights available on a first-come, first-served basis.

This unique experience can be booked exclusively on Booking.com here: http://www.booking.com/hotel/au/avocondo.html
