The Most Expensive Luxury Airbnb Listings You Can Rent

Airbnb offers everything from a night on someone’s couch to amazing luxury estates. Since we’re just daydreaming, we wanted to look at some of the most expensive luxury Airbnb listings you can rent. Unless you’re an A-list celebrity, business mogul, or royalty, you probably won’t be in the market for these properties but there’s no harm in looking.

In recent years, Airbnb has soared in popularity. It grants its sellers the opportunity to quickly turn their empty properties into cash, and buyers the ability to rent accommodation in their chosen destination per night, for a truly authentic experience. Many of properties are relatively inexpensive, but there’s a wealthy few that are willing to offer out their exceptional living spaces for a princely sum. We’ve done some searching and found the most impressive for you.
 
Hertfordshire, London – $870 per night

This property situated in North London will set you back a fair amount, but must be worth it to spend time in such a unique place. In fact, you might consider it a bargain! As you approach from the long private drive, you’ll see the old 1860’s tower that stands front and centre of the house. Inside, there are 6 bedrooms, two open fires, beautiful oak floors and low authentic wooden beams to give it that rural feel.

You’d be excused for expecting a huge property with more rooms than you have friends for this price tag, but this listing is actually a small two bedroom.

    Sounds unfortunate, but I don’t think I can afford to spend a night in any of these Airbnb listings. Though if I was to choose any, I’d definitely go for the Luxury Yacht, California. I like the fishing activity attached to it.

    Wow. These properties leave me absolutely gobsmacked! My major question is why the people who live in such gorgeous places could possibly give it up for other people to stay there! While the price tags are absolutely stunning, I think the properties themselves are the true surprise. I can’t even imagine renting a huge estate in Italy or England. I would have to say that my favorite is in France. I can’t imagine renting a place with seventeen bedrooms, but maybe that way if we split the price it…

    I wouldn’t mind spending the night at one of those houses like the chateau in Loire Valley or the residence in Toscana. Those places look like you can really feel the presence of history in there. But those are so expensive it would make more sense if they came with a chef like the yacht does. Add in a few maids and footmen and it would feel like being in a costume drama. I could pretend to be a character from Downton Abbey. Although I doubt that in that case I’d be able to leave after just one…

    Looking at the features of these Airbnb listings, one may be tempted to desire some hours in all, but this seems impossible. I’d like to spend days in the Airbnb in Brooklyn, New York because I can’t just resist its vintage features including furniture. But this would have been better if it had a sort of yacht, making fishing available.

    Looks really nice but damn expensive! However, If I have my way whenever I’m in France I’d go for Loire Valley.

    The Utah one is like a winter wonderland.
    And the Hertfordshire one is like a fairytale house. Would definitely visit at least half of them. Toscana looks like the place for a chill summer romance. However right now they’re not very accessible for me. They look amazingly beautiful though.
