Airbnb has launched a luxury tier of rental properties.
It’s called Airbnb Luxe.
2,000 newly listed properties on Airbnb Luxe are from luxury retreats, a separate rental site Airbnb acquired in 2017.
The luxe-level offerings include multi-story mansions, penthouses, a chateaux, and even a private island.
“Trip designers” can arrange experiences and services tailored to guests’ desires.
The homes have passed a 300-point inspection to qualify.
Average nightly rates are between $1,500 and $2,000.
