6 Over-the-Top Vacation Homes Celebrities Scored for Free

Kim Kardashian, Britney Spears, and Mariah Carey swapped social media posts for mansions worth $25 million and more.

It probably shouldn't surprise you that the biggest celebs in the world use their star wattage for major perks — including some seriously big-ticket vacation items.

In fact, the booking site Airbnb has made gifting homes to celebrities a standard component of its marketing strategy, regularly dishing out over-the-top luxurious listings to some of the biggest names in Hollywood... in exchange for some love (and legally required disclosure) on social media. Here are a few of the biggest celebrity vacation deals transacted in this way.

1. Lady Gaga's $20 Million Super Bowl Mansion

Lady Gaga scored an Airbnb listing as a crash pad for her Super Bowl stay in Houston. The five-bedroom home sprawls over a massive 10,000 square feet, 10 minutes from the stadium, and is a Mediterranean-style design by Robert Dame. The home sleeps 10 an in environment that feels like a mini hotel, with a resort-like pool surrounded by bluestone terraces as well as outdoor living and dining.

Thank you @airbnb for the gift of the gorgeous home in Houston for #SB51

2. Britney Spears' $30 Million Malibu Beach House

Britney Spears spent Memorial Day in Malibu last year in a $30 million beach house with her fam. The home has five bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths — and views of dolphins playing in the ocean right outside. A pathway leads from the airy and bright multiple-level manse right down to the beach.

3. Mariah Carey's $60 Million Italian Villa

This was basically the most Mariah Carey-appropriate lodging ever: The singer shacked up in a $60 million historic villa while in Italy performing her Sweet Fantasy tour. The eight-bedroom residence on Lake Como — known as Villa Napoleon I — was built in the 18th century and was later home to the opera composer Vincenzo Bellini. The home has soaring ceilings, symmetrical layouts, and ornate moldings and frescoes. Appropriate for the star, there’s a the double-height music room, with an antique piano and tufted sofas. The formal dining room has a ceiling fresco by Andrea Appiani, and there’s a second Tuscan-inspired dining room.

4. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's $25 Million NYC Penthouse

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West secured a rather posh New York crash pad: a 7,200-square-foot penthouse with 4,400 square feet of outdoor space spread over seven terraces. The place has an outdoor kitchen, sauna, home gym, and private pool.

5. Kylie Jenner's $35 Million Bahamas Compound

When Kylie Jenner turned 19, she scooped up a $200,000 Mercedes-Maybach from her beau, and then jetted off to paradise in the Bahamas with Tyga, Kendall Jenner, and pals like Hailey Baldwin, Bella Hadid, and Jordyn Woods. There, she stayed for free in a $35 million Airbnb property that is actually made up of three mansions. (Later, Nicki Minaj chose the same spot for her own birthday trip... but is reported to have paid for it.)

thanks for the gift of a lovely birthday home, @airbnb ✨

6. Zendaya's $18 Million Brazilian Getaway

Last summer, Zendaya crashed with her fam in Rio de Janeiro at the former Rothschilds’ property, an $18 million manse located in the jungle within the posh Zona Sul neighborhood. The home sleeps 10 and has four bedrooms, all decorated in a colorful scheme apropos for the lively national culture and beach lifestyle. A private infinity pool is done in a patten that mimics the famous black-and-white patterned walkways that line the beaches below.
