Renting an Airbnb usually means sacrificing some of the comforts and amenities of a nice hotel. With the launch of Airbnb Luxe in June, however, the service hopes to change that perception by making a handful of the world’s most exclusive properties open to the rest of us—if only for two or three nights.
One of those properties is Casa Koko, a sprawling, nine-bedroom, 12-bath beach house located in Punta Mita, Mexico that comfortably sleeps 22 people. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to live in the mansion from Bachelor in Paradise, this is probably a pretty safe bet.
In addition to all the beds and baths, the property also includes a giant infinity pool overlooking the beach, a banquet-style dining room, full kitchen, gym, and tons of outdoor spaces to unwind with a margarita and a paperback. Casa Koko is also fully staffed, meaning its residents have access to a personal chef and driver at all times, as well as daily turndown service.
If somehow that leaves you wanting more, Airbnb Luxe also offers a wide range of add-on services, including airport transfer, grocery delivery, and spa services. In short, you can be as lazy as you want to be while you’re on vacation—for a price.
Speaking of the price, at $9,800/night, Casa Koko is not exactly what anyone other than a member of the Walton family would call affordable. But if you can recruit 21 of your friends to split the cost and make the trip, you might finally have a beach paradise (almost) all to yourself.
