Win a Night in an Underwater Airbnb Surrounded by 35 Sharks

Airbnb / Airbnb

You deserve a vacation. A little R&R is always welcome, and what better place to rest than in a submerged bedroom with 360-degree views of shark-filled waters? The Verge reports that Airbnb is giving away a one-night stay inside a shark tank at an aquarium in Paris as a part of its Night At event series. All you need to do to enter the contest is write a short essay about yourself and why you should be chosen.

According to the Airbnb listing, the sleepover will take place either April 11, April 12, or April 13 and will be the first of its kind for the Aquarium de Paris, which was built in 1867. The cylindrical bedroom extends 10 meters (32.8 feet) into a three-million-liter tank, which is home to 35 living and swimming sharks. While visiting, winners and their guests will get to meet professional diver and underwater photographer Fred Buyle, will learn more about the sharks, and tour the aquarium. There are a few house rules to abide by, including no selfies after dark, no "sleepwalking or night swimming," and no eating the chum. The aquarium also stipulates that the winner and his/her guest cannot collectively weigh more than 418 pounds (for safety), must be at least 18 years of age, must be able to climb in and out of the room, and must be otherwise medically fit.

For all the details on how to enter for your chance to win this cool accommodation, check out the Airbnb listing, sink your teeth into some shark facts, and start drafting that essay before the April 3 deadline.
