You can rent a modern-day interpretation of life in the Shire on Airbnb.
This magical hideaway is tucked into the Rolling Hills Estates in Palos Verdes and it comes with all the Bilbo Baggins-approved creature comforts you could ask for. It’s a secluded semi-subterranean home, on private residence along the Bridle Horse trail, where you’ll be woken up by roosters and get to inhale the salty air of the ocean just seven minutes away and could be dining at high-end restaurants like Terranea after a 15-minute drive.
While it doesn’t quite have the Storybook architecture of the landmark Lawrence and Martha Joseph Residence and Apartments, Historic-Cultural Monument No. 624. (also known as The Hobbit House), the tiny guest house was hand-built out of Palos Verdes stone with a circular, iron, and glass circular entrance that creates a gorgeous Hobbit-home charm.
Inside, guests will have a luxurious California King bed and sherpa chairs to relax in after long days at the beach or golf course. It comes with a large, industrial-style shower with the walls of the shipping container exposed and a cute kitchen area with all appliances you could need for a weekend getaway.
Afternoons can be spent soaking up the California sun on the loungers and evenings can be spent outside sipping fine wines by the firepit in the lush garden. So for Tolkien fans yearning for a trip to Hobbiton in Matamata in New Zealand right now, it looks like you won’t have to travel too far at all.
