Fancy sleeping with fish?

Then Airbnb’s latest listing, a studio apartment floating on the Great Barrier Reef, might be for you.

Airbnb is running yet another contest for a floating hotel room in the Great Barrier Reef, and it looks even cooler than it sounds. (AFP)

The travel site is launching a competition that will see the lucky winner (and three lucky guests) spend the night in one of the world’s greatest natural wonders, for one night only.

The latest contest is to celebrate the release of Pixar’s Finding Dory. (AFP)

The studio features a master double bedroom and two bunk beds, as well as an open-air living space.

Of course, the real attraction is the vast expanse of water below, containing 1,625 different types of fish, 133 varieties of sharks and rays and more than 30 species of whales and dolphins.

To enter the contest, simply write a 50 to 500-character response to Airbnb’s prompt, which is simply, “Tell us about yourself, and why you and three guests belong on the Great Barrier Reef.” (AFP)

The package includes a diving session with the studio’s host. It also comes fully inclusive with meals prepared by a professional chef, and you’ll be able to go diving with the hosts.

Though, it isn’t free reign. Airbnb has set out the following rules: no clownfish jokes, speak like a whale, spot all 13 resident sea turtles, and don’t bark at the seals.

Rules are rules, and for a stay in a floating bedroom plus potentially scoring top bunk, they’re a small price to pay.

It’s definitely worth whipping out those essay-writing skills you perfected back in grade school, because the floating bedroom features a master double bedroom in addition to two bunk beds for a night. (AFP)

The contest, timed to coincide with the release of the new Disney Pixar film Finding Dory, and is accepting submissions from June 9 at 5 pm Australian Eastern Standard Time until June 30 at 11:59 pm Australian Eastern Standard Time.
