Airbnb has been growing in popularity, appealing to travelers all over the world. One of OROGOLD’s favorite aspects of Airbnb is the way in which it gives us the opportunity to stay in the most amazing celebrity homes around the world. From the former Malibu beach-front home of Denzel Washington to the LA villa where the finale of Entourage was filmed, OROGOLD brings you some of the coolest houses that are up for rent.
Denzel Washington’s Former Beach-Front Home, Malibu
Perched atop a 300 ft cliff and facing a 4 mile stretch of public sandy beach is Denzel Washington’s former home in Malibu. In addition to Denzel, Jimmy Page and Jan Michael Vincent have also lived here, enjoying the ocean views that this private, gated property offers. The seclusion and privacy that comes with the property is just one of the reasons that many celebrities have chosen to stay here when on a Malibu vacation. With the price ranging from $500 to $800 a night, it may seem slightly pricey, but, when you take into account the 3 luxurious bedrooms, the outdoor terrace ideally angled for watching the sun rise and set over the ocean, and the fact that you can watch dolphins and whales right from the comfort of your own patio, the price is almost justified.
Entourage Villa Retreat, LA
The luxurious Villa Sophia, located in the exclusive Los Feliz neighborhood of LA on a 1927 Mediterranean estate, was where the Entourage finale was filmed, as well as the 2011 Victoria’s Secret Bombshell Summer show. With a large sparkling pool and hot tub both offering views of the Los Angeles skyline, as well as mountain and ocean views, it is not hard to see why this property needs to booked well in advance. The spa-like guest house, in addition to its technological amenities, such as a sound system, a Play Station and an iPod dock, also offers a rain shower, double steam units, a flat screen TV in the bathroom, and L’Occitane toiletries.
Bing Cosby’s Former Holiday Home, Palm Springs
This stunning Palm Springs villa, which used to be owned by Bing Cosby, costs around $700 a night, but with accommodation for 8, with views of the San Jacinto mountains, poolside seating for 30, a full wet bar, a ping pong table and a choice of citrus trees bursting with ripe oranges, lemons and grapefruit, the price seems more than fair. The home measures 3200 square feet and has been lovingly and thoughtfully restored, complete with screening room and projector for guests that want to have a movie night in.
There are many more celebrity, and celebrity-worthy, homes coming up for rent on Airbnb. The next time you are planning a vacation, OROGOLD recommends checking the Airbnb website to see what is on offer at your chosen destination, as more often than not, you will be able to enjoy a more luxurious and one-of-a-kind stay than any hotel can offer.
