In recent years, homes formerly or currently owned by celebrities have been popping up all over the vacation rental platform Airbnb. Since there's no shortage of homes with a star-studded past for rent, we rounded up the best. Here's a peak inside Homes & Gardens' 5 favorite celebrity homes available on Airbnb.
These homes are full of interior design ideas too that you are definitely going to want to see.
1. Jimmi Hendrix's 1970s 'Gingerbread House' in Hawaii
The adorable 'gingerbread house' is the 1970s haunt of legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix, the place he stayed while filming Rainbow Bridge. This hidden gem is romantically tucked away in the lush privacy of Hana. The remodeled 1930s studio cottage is equipped with a kitchenette, a large bathroom, and a custom-built shower. The gingerbread house's outdoor patio offers views of the property's plentiful fruit trees and lush sacred garden.
What it lacks in space it makes up for with its fabulous outdoor living room. The gingerbread house is an indoor/outdoor wonder.
2. Julie Andrews's Rubber House Co in Accord, New York
This architectural space is the perfect creative retreat for performers, academics, artists, and designers. The one-time home of Oscar-winner Julie Andrews, The Rubber House Co. is full of tactile surfaces and dappled light. Nestled among a set of prehistoric boulders on 7 acres of wild land, its outside is as beautiful as its insides. The modern design includes floor-to-ceiling windows and brightly colored surfaces. It's a quick drive to beautiful outdoor spaces like the Mohonk Nature Preserve.
If you're looking for ultimate comfort, the primary bedroom has 270 views of the property's meadow and woods, a wooden deck, and a luxurious fireplace. The en suite includes a two-person tub looking out into the woods.
