Super luxurious Airbnb homes for your next lavish holiday
Just when I thought the house perched on a cliff, overlooking the sea in Cape Town was the most luxurious home my family has ever rented on Airbnb, I was proven wrong.
The homes listed on Airbnb Luxe is a cut above the rest, offering castles, villas, private islands and homes beyond what you can imagine.
But it doesn’t come cheap. The prices per night range from $400 to $70,000.
A quick glance through the specially-curated listing and my mind starts to drift off into fantasy — imagine spending an idyllic day in a historic villa in Tuscany with a beautifully manicured garden.
