Let’s face it, Airbnb is one of the best inventions for travelers to date. It’s a convenient way to find a place to stay, and gives you the chance to see what it’s like living in extravagant spaces outside your normal price range. Even celebrities like Beyonce and Mariah Carey have used Airbnb to temporarily rent a place for a night; places complete with lavish amenities like vanishing edge pools and stunning beach views. The costs of these anything-but-humble adobes range from $4,000 to $10,000 a night, which isn’t exactly within the average renter’s budget. Surprisingly, though, the cost might be worth the splurge. Whether you’re headed to Miami or Hawaii, here are five beautiful houses you can stay in to experience living like a celebrity.
Over Super Bowl weekend, Beyonce rented this architectural Los Altos masterpiece, complete with a vanishing edge pool and personally owned fruit orchard. Not only are the waterfront views utterly picturesque, but the house also has an eco-conscious, zero-energy footprint. It has five bedrooms, a full bar, a fitness center, and chickens right on the property, making fresh eggs for breakfast a cinch. The listing goes for $10,000 a night.
Set in Lanikai, Hawaii, this 1.3 acre beachfront estate is fit for an out-of-this-world relaxing vacation. Famous hairdresser Paul Mitchell actually owned this estate before passing it on to his son, but the property has since become available for travelers to rent during their Hawaii vacations. With seven bedrooms and lush gardens surrounding the gated property, the tropical rental will set you back $6,000 a night. On the plus side, there’s a gorgeous ocean view from the balcony and reef-protected azure waters to swim in, both of which make the price tag a bit more bearable.
This romantic Malibu getaway is perfect for a couples honeymoon, which is exactly why Mariah Carey rented it with her fiancé. Located on Carbon Beach, the Mediterranean-style villa is located right on the beach with a wide open deck. It has a private master suite with two guest bungalows and goes for $10,000 a night. There isn’t any internet connection offered, though, which just helps you focus even more on the breathtaking ocean scenery.
Want to spend a weekend with access to a richly diverse culture, and a game or two of golf? Gwyneth Paltrow’s vacation rental in Punta Mita, Mexico gave her the chance to do exactly that. With an ocean view and two outdoor infinity edged pools, the resort even has a customized yoga room with floor-to-ceiling windows and an outdoor shower. It’s a tropical dream listing that costs $10,000, but the six bedrooms you get for that sum mean that you can totally head down with your friends and split that six ways.
Save this Oahu Island adobe, with its upscale outfitted kitchen and panoramic ocean view, to your wishlist. Luckily, you aren’t too detached from technology with its SMART-equipped home panels to control everything from the window shades to dimmable lights. The $4,000-a-night rental has a beautiful pool and spa, and is in a prime location, as it sits within walking distance of the Gold Coast’s beaches.
If trying to get to bed in the lap of luxury still isn’t cutting it for you, try sipping on a bit of reBloom to get rid of your sleep troubles once and for all.
