Jun 26 2019, 11:31 pm

Live out your vacation dreams and travel like royalty this summer.

Airbnb is introducing Luxe, a line of luxurious travelling experiences with high-end homes and a personal trip designer to deliver your dream vacation on a silver platter. Or gold or platinum or glass-bottomed… whatever you like.

No matter what your travel style, Luxe has got you covered. You could rent out an entire island in French PolynesiaĀ for a casual $192,921 per night, or an entire medieval village in Italy for a much more affordable $27,000 per night.

More of a city person? Luxe has urban luxury options too, like this to-die-forĀ Sloane Square penthouse in London or this incredible country club mansion in Los Angeles.

The only catch is that you have to be willing a splurge a little. These homes will set you back at least $1,000 per night.

But it’s for good reason. All of the Luxe homes are evaluated using more than 300 criteria, to satisfy the high standards of interior designers, industry experts, and Airbnb’s environment team.

They’ve made sure that each individual home looks amazing and is in a desirable location. Each home serves a specific vacation purpose and is staffed with professionals who can help create a magical travel experience.

From the moment you’ve shown interest in a property, a trip designer will work with you every step of the way to ensure you’re happy with the experience.

Providing support 24/7, the trip designers are from all over the world. They have connections to hotel and luxury brands and offer the expertise to make each trip the best it can possibly be.

Using local knowledge, the designers can advise on where to stay if you’re unsure of what’s best for you. Once you’ve decided where to go, they’ll design a “bespoke” travel itinerary based on the goals you have for your travels. Trip designers will help with big details and small details alike; like whether or not to go skiing in the Alps or island hopping and how to best avoid traffic and big crowds. We know, these are all tough decisions.


Te Kahu ā€“ Wanaka, New Zealand (Airbnb)

Your vacation is only limited by your imagination. If you can dream it, you can achieve it with Luxe.

Airbnb is working to expand its line and is hoping to add 12 more cities, including Milan, Paris, and Austin, by the end of the year.
