You may have noticed something strange while scrolling through Airbnb this week: a Taco Bell restaurant in Chatham, Ontario.

It’s really more of a contest than an actual Airbnb listing, but it’s definitely a thing: The Yum Brands-owned (YUM) fast-food chain is offering a “SteakCation” (a play on Staycation) at this location to celebrate the launch of its Steak Doubledilla, which is essentially a steak quesadilla with a double portion of meat.

The listing states the restaurant will be outfitted with two bunk beds, a flat screen TV, movies, video games, and even a Taco Bell Butler. Guests will also get to feast on the new menu item. In fact, it’s one of the house rules: “Eating Steak Doubledillas in bed is not only allowed, but encouraged.” Another rule is just “Live Más.”

Unfortunately, the contest is only open to residents of Canada, excluding Quebec residents. It opened on Oct. 3, and is scheduled to close on Oct. 11 at noon. The winner can invite three friends to join a one-night stay at the restaurant on Oct. 17.


Taco Bell could not immediately be reached for comment.
