April showers bring May flowers, but they also bring lots of beach trips. Now that winter is finally trailing off, sunny and sandy vacays are in your future. This Airbnb in North Carolina near the beach is actually a shipping container and it's everything you need for the spring break of a lifetime.

Cottages on the beach are cool, but you know what's even cooler? Shipping containers on the beach. Not many people can say they've actually vacationed inside part of a freight train before, but that's all about to change.

This bright blue "Modern Beach Container Home" is probably the most unique accommodation you'll ever sleep in. So unique that The New York Times wrote a profile on the sustainable living spaces.

This one-of-a-kind spot is the second of two "Conchs" that was re-imagined to create a super modern and cozy B&B for guests on their trip to Carolina Beach.

The outside is super beachy and industrial at the same time, with a bright blue-painted metal exterior and a spacious porch. The inside was re-invented to feature paperstone countertops, original mahogany hardwood floors and modern architecture and appliances.

Just minutes away from the beach (with public access at the end of the street), you'll have the coolest, comfiest place to come hang out after a long day at shore.

You can rinse off all the sand in the large, luxury teakwood outdoor showers. 

The 320-square-foot space accommodates three guests at $100 per night, so it's only $33 per person! You'll sleep like a baby in the cozy beds made up with organic linens.

If you're putting off your beach trip because you're low on cash, put your plans back on the radar because this place is uber affordable, extra cozy and most importantly, it's close to the beach. You can even bring your furry friends along (for an extra fee).
