From LLNYC: If you’re done spending layovers trying to awkwardly nap in places all around the airport (chair, floor, next to a Cinnabon), this glamorous lodge located above an airport should be your next stop. Yes, above an airport.

Vacation rental site HomeAway was responsible for the apartment inside of the Eiffel Tower, and now they’ve created another loft in an unexpected place: the original flight control tower at Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport.

The 380-square foot room was designed by Swedish artist and designer Cilla Ramnek. Sure it has delightfully cozy decor, plush grey carpeting and a full kitchen, but it’s the panoramic views that will blow your mind. You can watch the spectacular site of planes landing and taking off, with a serious bird’s-eye view.

Although we’d all love to book this stunning getaway ASAP, only five lucky winners of the #HomeAwayArlanda competition will get the chance to stay there.

During their four-day Nordic trip, winners will also get to stay in a HomeAway holiday rental in the cities of their choosing — Stockholm, Copenhagen, Helsinki or Oslo. Bonus: they get to bring along three guests to experience this magical holiday!

The competition runs until July 31st, so get a jumpstart and enter here.

Plus, watch this video to see the apartment come to life!
