Airbnb is well known for its quirky residential offerings, but this Halloween the famed homestay network is running one seriously scary competition.


The site has announced that a stay at Bran Castle in Romania – aka Dracula’s Castle – will be up for grabs for the night of October 31.


Two brave individuals will be able to call the misty mountain-top manor home thanks to host Dacre Stoker – that’s Bram Stoker’s great grandnephew – who will guide his guests through “lamp-lit corridors, creepy nooks, and squeaky staircases”.



The medieval fortress boasts 57 rooms, tower lookouts and “deep dark crypts” which can be explored before the sun sets.


Once darkness falls, Transylvanian castle-life hits peak creepiness with “unexpected guests” appearing, a “blood-enriching” Dracula inspired meal being served, and beds being offered in the form of velvet-trimmed coffins in the Count’s crypt.



To enter the competition, thrill-seekers are asked to show their “vampiric wit” in response to the following question: “What would you say to the Count if you were to come face-to-fang with him in his own castle?”


The winners will be flown to Transylvania courtesy of Airbnb and will stay at the castle free of charge.
