While there was a time when it seemed like a fantasy to be able to live like the rich and famous, popular website AirBnB has made it a real possibility. Whether you’re looking for something cozy and intimate or something extravagant and luxurious, AirBnB has given celebrities and their heirs the opportunity to rent out their grand domiciles to any commoner with a credit card. Now you can live like an A-lister, if only for a few days, when you rent one of these celebrity homes through AirBnB.
1. Ava Gardner and Artie Shaw’s Burbank Home
A classic Hollywood beauty and a big band jazz musician, Gardner and Shaw called this Rancho Equestrian house their own for the year they were married. Built in 1938, the home still remains even though Gardner and Shaw’s marriage did not, and up to two guests can rent a private room in this historic location. Guests can enjoy the extensive library and patio rose garden while staying in this classic Hollywood haunt.
2. Mickey Rooney’s Topanga Canyon Residence
Nestled between the mountains and the Pacific Ocean, the award winning actor once called this Topanga Canyon getaway home. For those looking to get away from the hubbub of L.A. life, this canyon home is great for people who enjoy hiking. Wander through the orchard and gardens and unwind in this historic Hollywood home. You’re only about a 15 minute drive to Malibu or Santa Monica, if you’re so inclined.
