You'd be hard pressed to find a more unique Airbnb rental in Cleveland, or most other places for that matter, than one of the most recent additions to Northeast Ohio's short-term rental inventory — the "Emoh" sphere created by artist Loren Naji two years ago.

"Emoh" (home spelled backward) is and has been a traveling art installation/sleeping quarters for Naji that's raised awareness of and conversations on homelessness. It will also, at least for now, double as a Clevo crash pad.

From the Airbnb listing:

This is an extremely cozy sleeping space that can fit two very close people for a unique romantic getaway. The bed is a twin bed mattress, modified to fit the curve of sphere. Hatch door can be latched from the inside and the sphere is located on a patio inside a secure fenced-in area. Bathroom sink and fridge are accessible inside the art studio. There is a private extra bed in the studio if needed. A premium package can include dinner cooked by the artist in his studio with art conversation.

Extremely cozy is definitely one way of putting it.

No smoking, pets, infants or parties, of course.
