If you were hoping to one day travel back to middle-Earth, this might just be the place you’ve been seeking.
A unique Airbnb listing — located in Naucalpan de Juárez, Mexico, which is 45 minutes from Mexico City — with caves, dragons and secret tunnels immersed in nature is up for grabs at $409 per night.
Designed by Architect Javier Senosiain, the home is known as El Nido de Quetzalcóatl or simply Quetzalcóatl’s Nest. The serpent-shaped condo complex is shockingly unique but still offers travelers a tranquil escape.
The exterior is lined with pearly colors like golden emerald and violet-blue to imitate Quetzalcóatl’s feathers — known as a feathered-Serpent deity of ancient Meso-American culture.
It was completed in 2007 after six years of construction. Spanning over 16,000 square feet, the entire complex is situated on over 80,000 square feet of land and check-in can be done yourself with a keypad.
One residence comes with four bedrooms, five beds and four baths.
And it appears almost everyone who has stayed has walked away happy.
“We had an excellent time… the place is a gem in the outskirts of Mexico City. Any fan of architecture or someone who appreciates individuals that take [sic] their time to build with love, care and respect for the environment will certainly appreciate staying here,” one guest wrote.
“Once in a lifetime experience. You don’t want to miss,” another said in a review.
Pegged as a retreat, the residence comes with a cave of minerals to explore, several botanical gardens and lakes that surround the property.
“It is a perfect place for small groups on retreats, to write, to meditate, for yoga, for walking, for a nice rest,” the listing states. “Bread, fruit & coffee included.”
The complex houses 10 apartments in total, with all the residences located in the snake’s back with three apartments upstairs and seven downstairs.
Discarded water from the apartments passes through a treatment plant where it is then “used for irrigation of all green areas,” according to a press release.
