Fun fact: Bollywood's biggest stars love Airbnb as much as we do, except their choices of abodes are rather lavish. Recently, we saw a bunch of celebrities who ditched the luxury hotel stays and chose gorgeous Airbnb homes in the most picturesque locations for some private downtime. While Shah Rukh Khan picked a posh Los Angeles mansion with a private pool and tennis court to unwind from his round-the-clock schedule, Shilpa Shetty kickstarted 2018 with her family at an extravagant villa in Dubai.
Contradicting her senior counterparts, Sonam Kapoor opted for an urban 5 bedroom apartment, located in New York's Greenwich Village. The Neerja actress and her long-time boyfriend decided to stay in a modern townhouse for their previous staycation in The Big Apple.
6 Bollywood stars and their stunning Airbnb homes
1. Shilpa Shetty Kundra (Dubai)
Palm Jumeirah Private Beach Villa: This spacious four-bedroom garden villa overlooking the Burj Al-Arab was the perfect place for Shilpa's family vacation. The star probably took advantage of the private beach and enormous pool to work on her tan.
2. Shah Rukh Khan (Los Angeles)
Beverly Hills Mansion: When India's most popular actor travels to the land of movie stars, he travels in style. Khan and his family picked this Beverly hills home, located a convenient five-minute walk from Rodeo Drive. We're guessing the star didn't spend much time cooped up inside one of the six bedrooms, choosing instead to kick back and relax in the jacuzzi or test his skills on the private tennis court.
3. Sonam Kapoor (New York)
Townhouse in West Village: The consummate city girl, Sonam Kapoor, was most at home in this West Village townhouse, with five bedrooms to laze in but a gym to help her stay on those fitness goals.
4. Twinkle Khanna (Paris)
Charming Apartment at St Germain des prés: Mrs Funnybones's Airbnb home of choice is walking distance from the Seine river and Notre Dame. Perfect to spend your afternoons devouring the newest novel with a side of authentic French maracons? We think so.
5. Mandira Bedi (Sri Lanka)
The Mangrove located on the outskirts of Colombo: Mandira chose this private getaway, that offers 4 suites —Allure, Flame, Lily, and Oasis — surrounded by lush greens, designed keeping comfort and rejuvenation in mind.
Milind Soman (Norway)
BARCODE- Exclusive apartment near Central St.- Opera : Milind Soman brought in his 53rd birthday with girlfriend Ankita in this Oslo apartment offering a mesmerizing view of the ocean. We're guessing they cut his gluten-free, organic carrot cake on the roof terrace on the 21st floor, while gazing into the fjord.
