Life for rent

Airbnb is partnering with designers from across the globe to list their properties on the home sharing website.

Have you ever looked through the pages of a magazine or watched a series featuring a celebrity home, and thought ‘I wished I lived there’?

Now Airbnb is making it a reality for simple folk like us, starting with designers’ homes.

The online holiday rental service has partnered with the likes of Belgium design duo Fien Muller and Hannes Van Severen. The couple’s Ghent home is now listed for rent for about 200 euros (about R3 200) per night. That’s not much in the bigger scheme of things.

Guest accommodation includes 1 bedroom, free parking and a kitchen. But be warned: be prepared to climb a steep staircase to get the apartment.
