In the past, there’s been some debate about what’s more expensive: hotel rooms or Airbnbs. Airbnb originally marketed itself as a budget-friendly option for those who love to travel. A lot has changed since 2008, though. Now you can find exquisite luxury Airbnbs that rival some of the most expensive hotel rooms at luxury brands. Joybird, a custom-made furniture company, set out to find the most expensive Airbnbs in each state. We’re not talking about hundreds of dollars a night, but four- and five-figure rooms that offer a unique experience.
The third and second most expensive Airbnbs in the US are tied in price. The first is located in Edgartown, Massachusetts. The four-bedroom residential home sleeps eight, is fitted with four bathrooms, and is located on Oyster Pond, a 2685-acre watershed. Enjoy an indoor pool and hot tub, movie theater, and a private tennis court for a mere $10,000 per night. The second priciest Airbnb is located in Alaska. Guests can stay on a four-bedroom, four-bathroom yacht in Juneau with a hot tub on deck and gourmet meals available.
The Airbnb that will put the biggest dent in your pocket is in Yountville, California. This 22-acre villa in Napa Valley has five bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, and sleeps 10. Amenities include a private pool and hot tub, but the star of the show is the private daily breakfast chef. All this can be yours for a whopping $15,000 a night.
The top five most expensive Airbnbs by state for a three-night stay
- Yountville, California — $45,000
- Edgartown, Massachusetts — $34,235
- Juneau, Alaska — $34,235
- Flagstaff, Arizona — $32,870
- Las Vegas, Nevada — $29,321
To find the most expensive Airbnbs in each state, Joybird looked for dates in July (the costliest and most popular month for vacation rentals in the US), and excluded rentals that were already rented out prior to February 3, 2022. Then it took into account the property type, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, number of guests the rental can accommodate, cost per night, total cost including fees, rental dates, any special amenities, and the average rent for residents by state. Would you be willing to spend up to $45,000 to live in luxury?
