New Airbnb Luxury Service – Im Jealous


Baller Status

Are you a huge fan of Airbnb services? Well look away now because the new feature targets ‘super rich’ tourists – and not the masses of frugal travellers trying to get away for a weekend on a budget! Okay wait don’t leave, let’s check it out anyway! 

Airbnb are planning to launch a new premium service for the Elite Traveller known only to the company as “Airbnb Lux” according to Bloomberg. For those people with huge bank accounts will be able to rent out mansions, penthouses and luxurious homes that meet a certain high level.

 

I have no idea what that ‘certain criteria’ is, but maybe it is that each property has an AI butler that can rap, or each room has a whirl pool with masseuses on hand, but right now nobody knows.

Airbnb right now are not spilling the beans on their plans to attract wealthy people who want to stay in other rich-people homes.  According to a source on gizmodo they were told that “We’re continually experimenting with new ways to create meaningful experiences on Airbnb,”  I don’t have any more to share on the new things we’re test driving but we have a few exciting projects in the works.”

Airbnb Select

Also Bloomberg reported that the company were planning to launch Airbnb Select, which targets wealthier travellers who prefer more of a hotel style experience. The perks for the hosts are awesome  – so be sure to check out my next post on this people!

Anyway, it makes evolutionary sense that Airbnb would provide these type of luxury listings. They even offered luxurious properties to Beyoncé and some other celebs so they can share that on social media.

Even Lady Gaga had also posted on Instagram, a photo of the home she stayed at during the Super Bowl. I always wondered why the rich stay rich – I see that now they don’t pay for a damn thing! So listen up folks – work hard, have some form of talent, get rich and then you wont have to pay for anything again! Yah not so easy!

You know, even with all the celebrity backing, we don’t know how successful these high end services will be.

One thing for sure – is that I believe it will take off like a gold plated private plane!! But the worst part is I won’t be shopping in the “luxe” department. – so what do you guys really think of this ??

    Sounds like an interesting idea. Better than the original service market-wise. I used to love the original AirBnB, but since I’ve seen rental rates here in Prague skyrocket due to it, I’ve been having second thoughts.

    I like this because if you have some extra money to spend, then this is a way to make sure you get quality accommodation.

    That would be awesome but I do not see myself ever affording it hahahaa. I like AirBnB more about the people I meet and the money saving then the places it self.

    I can’t even imagine how cool it would be to stay at one of these ultra-luxury airbnbs. I think if there’s a niche, it would only make sense for them to fill it. As for the celebrity piece .. So much of social media is curated, that I take most everything I see online with a grain of salt. x

    This seeems like an exciting venture for them, I think it will go over well with wealthier clients. It will be interesting to watch how it all ends up working.

    Your humour is so awesome. Sadly, there is truth in it too. I would love to have to not pay for things like that so I can travel more. I barely travel now. That being said, I wish Air BnB didn’t try to price out people either which would be my concern.

    AirBnB luxury looks promising. Now all celebrities will turn their home into luxury destinations. I have never done AirBnB staying before but look into it.

    Sounds like an awesome idea. My bank account can’t afford some of those awesome mansions. I’ve had some great luck with airbnb otherwise though 🙂
