Did you know that a villa featured in a Netflix show is now the most expensive Airbnb in the world? Known as The Casa Tau in Mexico, it costs $36,000 each night. But if you want a luxury stay without the reality TV fans around, do you know the available other places?
There are many luxury holidays left around the world for all your needs. Read on as we give our choice of the most expensive Airbnbs that you must visit.
1. The Villa at the Estate of Yountville
Napa Valley is one of the most beautiful areas in California. A large expanse famous for its wine regions, you can also visit hot springs in the area for the ultimate relaxation. However, if you want to stay with a natural touch of class, visit the Villa at the Estate of Yountville.
Carrying on the wine theme, the Villa has five bedrooms, each themed to a distinct grape variety. All have king-sized beds, and en-suite bathrooms, with the master bedroom having direct access to the pool area.
The heated swimming pool and hot tub are on the property’s grounds. If you want to eat outside, the alfresco dining space has a fire pit for sitting, socializing, and drinking the night away.
A range of staffing options is also available, including a daily chef breakfast and welcome reception.
All of this will cost around $45,000 for a three-night stay.
2. Villa Victoria
Saint-Tropez has long had a reputation as a place for luxury stays. Situated on the stunning Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur in southern France, it has everything you need. You can spend the evening in bustling restaurants and bars or visit the winding, cobbled streets of the old town.
Of course, you may want to opt for quiet and privacy. Villa Victoria, a 7-bedroom stone villa with unbeatable views over Pampelonne Bay and St. Tropez, can provide that.
The property touts itself as more of a private resort than a holiday let. A chef will be on the site for six days of a seven-day stay. Other staff on the site include a villa host and housekeeper.
Outside, the Villa boasts a heated pool along with a pool house. You can even arrive in style by landing on its helipad.
With a fantastic stone look that fits the look of buildings in the area, it will cost around $115,000 for a seven-night stay.
3. Bellagio Grand
The Bellagio Grand is a French country club in the heart of Los Angeles. You will never feel so Hollywood as you sip cocktails looking over the fairways of the Bel-Air Country Club.
Even if golfing on the private putting green is not for you, there is plenty more to keep you entertained. A private cinema, billiards room, and air hockey are all on the premises. Grand piano, gyms, and saunas are all included for some downtime.
The main house has seven bedrooms, each with a mix of king and queen-sized beds. An attached guest suite provides two more rooms allowing you to house 16 guests.
A minimum stay of 30 days applies to the property, costing around $650,000.
4. Charter-Inner Pas Yacht
When you think of going on holiday, Alaska does not often spring to mind. This is even less so when you want luxury, expensive Airbnbs. Yet you can combine luxe accommodation with great outdoor fishing experiences on this yacht trip.
The Caledonia is a 95ft yacht that tows a 28ft fishing tender. It has four staterooms, each with a private bathroom. There are living rooms, dining rooms, and even a hot tub.
All this comes with a whole crew to attend to your every need. An onboard chef will serve gourmet meals. Of course, this comes second to the excellent fresh air and fishing you can get on the trip.
Depending on your preference, the yacht can set off from Juneau or Sitka. It plots a course around the inner passages, giving you as slight motion as possible.
Stays are for a two-night minimum and will cost around $25,000.
5. Vegas Palms Penthouse
This is the largest penthouse in Las Vegas, and you can have the whole floor to yourself. The most expensive listing in the city resides on the 59th floor and provides 360-degree views of the city. You get 6,300 square feet indoors and 25,000 square feet of outdoor space.
The outdoor terrace wraps around the living area, making it great for events or entertaining. It has a DJ booth, outdoor movie screen, kitchens, and an elevated hot tub.
From the moment you arrive, the property will take your breath away. A lobby with zen-infused water gardens and stone greets you before an elevator takes you to the top floor.
Booking it for an evening will cost just over $4000.
6. Drylaw House
Drylaw House has a pedigree of elegance and class that most Airbnb stays try hard to fake.
The property’s focal point is its substantial roaring fireplace, ideal for those cold Scottish evenings spent sipping whisky. If you want to venture outside, it is set in a five-acre secluded plot with perfectly manicured gardens.
You can also rent the house for events and gatherings. With six social spaces, it can cater to small or large parties. The whole house can comfortably sleep up to 24 people should anyone want to stay.
It costs around $4000 a night outside Edinburgh, Scotland. Inside are nine spacious bedrooms for all your guests.
7. Alan Pye Cottage
Nowhere is as remote as New Zealand when traveling the world; if you want to do it in style, this cottage is the place to be. It does not have the sprawling space of most luxury stays but provides two bedrooms and houses four guests. Despite being small, this intimate stay is packed with luxury features and trimmings for an excellent retreat.
Each of the bedrooms comes with a dressing room and fireplace. They have ensuite bathrooms and share a well-equipped kitchen. Outside is an infinity pool and a terrace with an outdoor lounge room.
Most beautiful are its views of the dramatic Waikato River. A one-night stay can cost $9500.
8. Waterside Casita
In world travel, few coastal views are as dramatic and sweeping as the Baja California Sur, Mexico. Situated in San José del Cabo, the floor-to-ceiling windows will let you take in the delicate sands and coastal waters. Three bedrooms each have a king bed and standalone rain showers in their en-suite bathrooms.
Breakfast comes complimentary at the nearby Casero Restaurant. You can eat in the fully equipped kitchen or cook lunch on the terrace barbeque. Set on the Viceroy Grounds, you can head out to the shops, bars, and restaurants for entertainment.
This is an ideal spot for a beachside getaway. Prices are around $6500 a night.
9. Chalet Wolgan
Chalet Wogan is perfect for a winter ski retreat. Situated in the French Alps near the town of Megève, it provides easy access to the slopes and all the bars and shopping you could want.
After skiing, you can relax in front of the large fire in this wood-paneled lodge. Put on the TV and refresh your muscles in the sizable hot tub. There is even an office if you need to do some work while on your vacation.
There are six bedrooms, and each can house 12 guests. With 3,000 square feet of living space, they have double beds and en suite bathrooms.
A night staying here will cost you $5500 though this will rise in peak ski seasons and be lower in summer.
10. Ocean View Villa
Ocean View Villa sits between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, Mexico, in Chileno Bay. It is an excellent spot for exploring Los Cabos, with its exciting beachfront and golf courses.
The Villa itself has a spectacular open-plan design that invites the outside in. Clad in natural wood, it has designer furniture and high-end electronics for your stay.
