Why would a celebrity rent out their home on Airbnb? Well, even if you're not desperate for money, you can't live in more than one house at a time, and extra houses can benefit by someone staying there occasionally. Most of these homes are available because the celebrity no longer owns them, some because they are deceased, like Orson Welles.
Not only was this gorgeous estate owned by Orson Welles, but it has also played host a wide array of celebrities, including David Bowie, Rita Hayworth, and Barbra Streisand. Today, you can rent the 3,000 sq. ft. home with 4 bedrooms/ 3 bathrooms and its 15,000 sq. ft. outdoor space for $595 per night, along with a $395 cleaning fee. While the home’s interior, including boutique bedrooms and spa-like bathrooms, is nothing short of spectacular, the outdoor space, which includes a lagoon pool with Jacuzzi and huge outdoor deck that overlooks Hollywood, is mesmerizing.
Nine other available celebrity Airbnbs are featured today, from simple childhood homes to a Caribbean island, at Housely.
