This Titanic-themed Airbnb might be the most questionable listing we’ve ever found

The Belfast home features a whole load of garish (and arguably very ugly) nautical-themed decor

When people say they really, really love Titanic, they’re usually talking about the film. After all, who would want to die at sea in an icy maritime disaster? We’d much rather be swept away on a romantic ocean liner with a dashing young Leo DiCaprio, that’s for sure.

And if you do happen to be a Titanic mega-fan, we might just have found your perfect Airbnb. It’s called ‘Rose’, and it’s a themed rental in Belfast that prides itself on being a ‘romantic retreat’ that invites guests to ‘live the 1912 Titanic world journey’. 

Now, if you ask us, Rose isn’t the prettiest thing in the world. It’s full of nautical-themed furniture and knick-knacks, and the artwork splashed across the walls is... garish, to say the least. But it’s difficult to properly slam Rose – after all, two and a half years of work apparently went into crafting and painting it all by hand. Here are a few more pics.

But if exceptionally bright colours, a lot of images of couples kissing and dozens of paintings of weird-looking crowds is your kind of thing, who are we to judge? The rest of the rental leans heavily into the romantic image of Titanic (rather than, y’know, the mass death bit), featuring a nautical-themed breakfast bar, ambient sea sounds and even a ‘kissing room’ hot tub.

So, what about the other amenities? Well, Rose has three bedrooms and can fit up to five guests. It’s got Wi-Fi, a flatscreen TV and all your usual kitchen and bathroom stuff. The host, David, has a pretty impressive 4.88 star rating, with guests generally praising his rental as ‘unique’, ‘comfortable’ and ‘hospitable’.

Next to Queen Victoria Park, Rose comes with a pretty snazzy view overlooking the Harland & Wolf shipyard – in other words, the dock where the actual Titanic was built. It’s also within walking distance of the Titanic Visitor Centre, so could be the perfect base camp for a Titanic-themed Belfast getaway.

Intrigued, at the very least? You can check availability and book on the rental’s Airbnb page.

While you’re here: these are officially the most lusted-after Airbnbs of 2021.
