Got a bit of dough to throw around? Want to impress your girlfriend/boyfriend? Want some motivation in your life? Look no further. I’ve provided ten accommodations from Airbnb from around the world that will guarantee to make your wallet thinner. I selected these accommodations based on pricing, uniqueness, and feel… some of the accommodations I saw, as expensive as they were, didn’t seem very “luxurious” and felt too “homey” for me. I set out to find accommodations that define luxury.
[Bali, Indonesia] Spacious 10-bedroom in Tabanan (Airbnb)
If you’ve been following my blog, you would know that Bali is one of my favorite places to visit thus far, and if you wanna go all out in Bali, you might as well live here. Just as you would expected from a top notch villa, there is a 24 hour butler service for guests. This is the perfect location for those that want to be close to a beach and not too far away from everything else Bali has to offer.
[Phuket, Thailand] Super Lux. Laemson Villa 1, Phuket (Airbnb)
When you need a break from real life, you come to Phuket. While Phuket offers an amazing array of foods (at unbelievably cheap prices) and beaches, the main attraction in Phuket is actually living in the amazing villas they have around the region. And if you want to stay at where the French prime minister, the richest woman in Australia, and the one Middle Eastern prince had stayed before in Phuket, then this villa is for you. 6 staff members to assist you and a boat to rent… Click on the airbnb link to read more about it.
[Los Angeles, U.S.A.] Mulholland estate events and Pool (Airbnb)
When life gives you money, you go to Los Angeles. In this city of fame and fortune, this is one of two LA properties which I will feature in this post. This accommodation has been featured in both The Apprentice and also American Idol. It is close to Universal City, Bel Air, Beverly Hills, and West Hollywood.
[Los Angeles, U.S.A.] Sunset Plaza Mansion Event House (Airbnb)
Looking for a place to do a shooting or to host a small event? This place might just be what you’re looking for. There’s a dance floor, a swimming pool, and even a casino room! It’s like mini Las Vegas smacked in Los Angeles, nearby West Hollywood. The best thing about this place is that there’s even a stripper pole here as well. Also a spa. Who the heck even owns these kind of places!?
[Kéa, Greece] Aigis Suites (Airbnb)
Situated in Kea Islands, these suites can accommodate up to 26 guests (9 suites) and should offer you a comfortable and welcoming stay in Greece. Please note that since transportation to Kea Islands is not frequent, they recommend you to rent a car or call a taxi over there.
Who cares about villas when you can live in a castle? Yep that’s right. This chateau is located in the Western part of France and can accommodate up to… 32 persons! Swimming pool (heated of course), tennis courts, golf, all inclusive. Want to feel like a king and queen for the night? Royalty at its best at this private chateau.
[Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, France] Modern Villa Overlooking Harbor (Airbnb)
If I could pick any one property to buy in the world, this would be ranked at the top of my list. It’s modern, it’s sleek, and it’s elegant. AND it’s located nearby all the cool places in France… Nice, St. Tropez, Cannes… Did I mention they also have a swimming pool, spa, fitness room, jacuzzi, and a wine cellar!?
[Cape Town, South Africa] Moondance – Unrivalled Luxury (Airbnb)
Forget about what I just said about the property just now… this one is ridiculous! Located also in my other favorite places in the world, Cape Town, this place is like one of those diamonds that is THE diamond and nothing else can compare with it. It has 7 beds and according to airbnb only accommodates 10 people. It’s got a fitness room bigger than most hotels, and it has an elevator for all you lazy people out there. There’s also a cinema room… but who cares about that right when you’re overlooking Cape Town.
[Antalya, Turkey] Rixos Premium Belek (Airbnb)
Have a small group of people visiting Turkey together? Spend some money on your trip by booking this place. Great interior design, comfortable, and welcoming, you are sure to be satisfied with this villa. Located nearby is a 1000m sandy beach. You can stay in the executive villa to enjoy access to a private pool.
[Toscana, Italy] Borgo Santo Pietro: 112025 (Airbnb)
Because when in Italy, you have to have somewhere classic to live in. Somewhere different. Somewhere large. And this accommodation has 15 bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, is close to Florence and Siena, and even has tennis and basketball courts. Also swimming pool, jacuzzi… the list goes on. Each room / suite has its own “name” as well.
So! If you ever feel generous and want to invite me to stay at one of these places, I am more than happy to. Otherwise, I hope this post helped you find some places to spend your extra savings on.
