Who wouldn't like to live a James Bond lifestyle? Well, now you can thanks to Airbnb – as Fleming Villa, the former home of Ian Fleming, is available to rent on the holiday site.

Fleming Villa was where the author of the iconic series of spy novels spent time while working on his books.

Boasting picturesque views of the Caribbean Sea, the villa sits along the stunning beachfront of GoldenEye Resort. Whether you want to laze in a hammock slung between the trees, or float across the lagoon-like shallows of the swimming pool, this home is the epitome of luxury.

The interiors are stylish and easy breezy, reflecting the laidback nature of the island; think whitewashed rafters, dark wood and botanical prints.

The bedrooms are peaceful, relaxing sanctuaries with polished concrete floors and epic views over the azure ocean.

If you're a James Bond fan, or simply like the finer things in life, other locations fit for a spy on Airbnb include a chalet in the Italian Alps (opens in new tab) that sits 3,000 metres above the town of Bormio, and a glass-walled, hillside villa in Cape Town (opens in new tab).

Bond fans can also take their 'mission' one step further on Airbnb by indulging in a whole range of experiences across the globe. From speedboats (opens in new tab) and supercars (opens in new tab), to skiing (opens in new tab) and tailored suits (opens in new tab), there’s everything needed to live the lifestyle of the secret agent.
