If you’re planning to go traveling, you’ve probably thought about your options for accommodation. Generally, most people assume they have the choice between a hostel, hotel or apartment, but it turns out that this is untrue and there are actually plenty of awesome and slightly options available.
For those who have always seen themselves as deserving of a lifestyle like the rich and famous, you can actually get a taste of this type of life by living in a celebrity home…and it’s cheaper than you think.
Step into Elizabeth Taylor’s shoes at the Casa Elizabeth Luxury Estate, which is located in Palm Springs, California. This famous home has photographs of Elizabeth throughout the house, along with oil paintings and some of her priceless possessions. Up to 8 people can stay at this property, which features incredible views, a pool, spa, and even a fireplace for when it gets chilly. You’ll pay just £372 per person to spend a week in this incredible home.
Or perhaps you’d like to really live it up and choose from 13 bedrooms with 19 of your closest friends? The Merv Griffin Estate is the place for you if this sounds appealing, and you can lounge on sun terraces, relax in the infinity pool or even go paddle boating in your own private pond.
If you like the idea of staying somewhere where numerous stars have rested their heads, the estate of actor Orson Wells is located in the Hollywood Hills, above Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles. This gorgeous estate includes a jacuzzi and wonderful lagoon pool where you can lounge and enjoy some of the best views of Hollywood. Some of the stars who have lived here include David Bowie, Barbara Streisand, Frank Sinatra and Rita Hayworth- that’s some serious star power. 8 people can stay at this house, which has 4 bedrooms and will only cost you £455 for each person for a week.
Have you always wanted to stay on an island in the Caribbean? Richard Branson’s incredible home is an island with plenty of activities in the gorgeous British Virgin Islands. Perfect for a wedding or family reunion, the island has room for up to 30 people although it’ll set each person back £9,928 per week.
For those who like the sound of a Japanese style villa on the beachfront in Mustique, with a hot tub, outdoor pool, tennis court, and six pavilions that are all connected by walkways (did I mention the house was once owned by Mick Jagger?) then consider staying here with 9 of your friends for £1,244 per person for the week.
If you want to live like a model, The Lucky House is owned by Christy Brinkley and as you can expect it has a great decking area that’s perfect for sunbathing, along with a huge infinity pool and even a fire pit.
For something a little different, consider for your next holiday.
