Airbnb now caters to the world’s one-percent with Airbnb Luxe, a new vacation rental service specifically for them. One of the rentals the luxury rental service offers is an actual island in French Polynesia for $1 million a week. This jaw-dropping million-dollar Nukutepipi island accommodation can entertain 52 people in 21 bedrooms and 25 bathrooms, as W magazine details:
Included in its initial offerings is 2,000 properties culled from Luxury Retreats, a different vacation rental company that Airbnb purchased in 2017. One of those happens to be an actual island in French Polynesia that you can rent for $1 million a week. As steep as that price tag is, the Nukutepipi island accommodates 52 people among 21 bedrooms and 25 bathrooms so you can bring your whole social network there. The other listings, meanwhile, are relatively a bargain at $1,500 to $2,000 a night. Of course, that’s still an incredible leap from Airbnb’s recently launched Plus tier, which begins at $150 per night.
Airbnb Luxe isn’t just about dwellings; it’s also about your entire journey as the program comes with access to a “dedicated trip designer” “who’s there to craft your five-star stay, even down to securing a table at a Michelin-starred restaurant,” according to the website. These “designers” handle everything from your transportation to and from the properties, which can be tailored to include “private airport pick-up, an in-person welcome, and a home stocked with your must-haves,” to services, “from personal chefs to massage therapists,” as well as “childcare, to private chefs to personal training sessions in your own private gym.”
This million-dollar rental is a dream for those who don’t want to share their accommodation with random guests, and will stay a dream for a broke person like me. If you have the money to spare, give it a try!
