If you've ever dreamt of staying on your own private island with white sand beaches and turquoise seawater or basking in the Tuscan sun in a private mansion, the new Airbnb setting may be exactly what you need.

The company has launched it's Airbnb Luxe service with over 2,000 hand-picked listings on offer for travellers looking to spend a minimum of $1,000 per night. Yes, you read that number right.

Award-winning homes are available to stay in, following a rigorous evaluation with over 300 criteria to consider, so expect to find elevated design standards, rare features, chef-grade appliances and about a million bathrooms

Among the chosen homes include island locations like New Zealand, South Africa, historic Tuscan villas, and even the Jamaican beachfront property where Ian Fleming wrote his iconic 007 spy novels.

Other customers may prefer the complete privacy and exclusivity of booking an entire island with its very own self-declared time zone at the incredible private atoll in French Polynesia, Nukutepipi.

Curated by Guy Laliberte, founder of Cirque du Soleil and Lune Rouge, you can only imagine how Instagrammable this homes is. The high-end settings will cost you a fortune, however.

Included in the Airbnb Luxe experience is a dedicated trip designer, on hand to ensure your "bespoke experiences" are "truly magical" and to arrange any spa, personal trainer or childcare appointments for you.

The designers also provide deep local knowledge, end-to-end trip planning, concierge services and 24/7 VIP support, if you don't mind. Posh folk need constant care, it seems.

Some of the home options include additional services like butlers, personal drivers, chefs and medieval farm-to-table dinner experiences.

Airbnb Luxe plans to add properties in at least 12 more cities this year, following the success of listings in London and Los Angeles. Fancy places aren't just situated in exotic lands, gals.

The company has come a long way since it's humble beginnings, which began as three friends using an air mattress in a San Francisco apartment.

The home-rental company has been adding new services over the last few years like 'heritage travel' and adventure holidays, and is now pushing into the traditional hotel industry.

Airbnb feel that it's customers are ready for high-end getaways, after the number of bookings for listings worth at least $1,000 per night increased more than 60 percent in 2018.

Who are these people with all this disposable cash, can I ask? The luxury travel market is currently estimated to be a whopping $200 billion.

The company are claiming to make bespoke travel more accessible to anyone. Brian Chesky, Airbnb Co-Founder, CEO and Head of Community spoke about the launch;

“Today’s luxury traveller is craving more than just high-end accommodations; they seek transformation and experiences that leave them feeling more connected to each other and to their destination.”

“With Airbnb Luxe we are applying the same approach we’ve used since we launched Airbnb more than 11 years ago — creating local, authentic and magical travel moments now in amazing places to stay- to reimagine the way people think and experience luxury travel.”

We'll probably just stick to our trusted air mattress, but thanks Brian. Drool over Airbnb Luxe for yourself on their website. The jealousy is just that little bit too real.

Things are NOT looking good for Kylie Jenner's former best friend, Jordyn Woods.

She's absolutely embroiled in a cheating scandal involving Khloe Kardashian's baby daddy Tristan Thompson, and unsurprisingly is getting all the blame, despite the fact that Tristan was the one in a relationship.

The 21-year-old Instagram model has reportedly moved out of Kylie Jenner's mansion, and Khloe has referred to her subtly as a snake for getting with her former beau a couple of weeks ago.

A few fascinating conspiracy theories have surfaced involving Kris Jenner and Khloe herself setting up Jordyn as a possible 'honey trap' to stir up drama for the next season of the Kardashian reality show.

Others claim Jordyn was even in on the act herself, conspiring with Khloe to show just how trashy Tristan is. Who knows? Either way, TMZ are claiming that Jordyn is blaming ALCOHOL for the scandal.

Apparently, she's dying to get back into the Kardashian inner circle, and said she simply had too many drinks before 27-year-old Cleveland Cavaliers basketball player Tristan came into the scenario.

"She has been begging her ex-best friend Kylie Jenner for forgiveness…ditto with Khloe,” a source told TMZ.

“Woods was wasted before she even went to the house party where witnesses say she snuggled up to Tristan. She's saying she was actually blackout drunk,” the insider continues.

They add: “she doesn't even remember how she got to the party or anything that happened there.” Hmmm, do you believe her?

TMZ also reports that Jordyn was in tears when she was told what she allegedly did, and apparently Kylie Jenner was so shocked that she actually couldn’t believe the claims.

Jordyn is 100 percent the newest enemy of Khloe Kardashian, the 34-year-old ex of Tristan.  Taking to Instagram , the reality star has branded Jordyn a “snake” and “f***ed up” ib her latest posts.

Yikes. We would NOT want a Kardashian as an enemy, they have so much social media power…

Jordyn Woods has reportedly moved out of Kylie Jenner's luxurious guest house amid the cheating scandal involving Tristan Thompson.

The 21-year-old has gone to her mother's house, according to People, following reports that she was having an affair with Khloe Kardashian's former beau.

A source from the publication stated; "It seems Kylie isn’t sure what to do, but it seems impossible for her to keep Jordyn around."

Kylie Jenner's BFF Jordyn Woods apparently was seen cosying up to Tristan Thompson last Sunday at an LA house party.

The 21-year-old has left Kylie's mansion hours after the news hit the headlines, with an insider claiming: "It's been a difficult time and she's broken up about it. She's heading home to be with her mom."

The magazine revealed that Tristan and Jordyn had been romantically involved at a weekend party, which "blindsided" the Kardashian/Jenner family.

Allegedly the family didn't believe the story at first, which claimed Jordyn and Tristan "made out" and were "all over each other" at the party. 

TMZ and Hollywood Unlocked reported the news on Tuesday that Tristan was unfaithful to his baby momma (not the first time he's done that) but also he cheated on her with Kylie's best friend, Jordyn.

34-year-old Khloe then officially broke up with Tristan for good. Let's also remember that Tristan cheated on his pregnant ex-girlfriend with Khloe, so it's not surprising.

TMZ said that "she had enough" after finding out the news and that there's is "little chance" of any type of reunion between Khloe and Tristan.

Kylie and Jordyn have been best friends since childhood, and Khloe also hired Jordyn to be part of the Good American squad for her denim/workout line. 

The family believed that Tristan being "inappropriate" because "everyone knows that he can't believe," the fact that Jordyn "would make out with him" seemed "at first like a made up rumour."

"It's all a mess now," People's source reported. "Everyone considered Jordyn to be family. The family is 'furious' and feels "blindsided" by the scandal, which they found out about on Monday." 

Jordyn hasn't responded to the allegations as of yet, and Kylie hasn't said anything either.

Kim Kardashian unfollowed Jordyn and 27-year-old basketball player Tristan yesterday, which marks the second time she has unfollowed Tristan.

Dailymail.com revealed last year that Tristan had cheated on the then-pregnant Khloe with a strip club worker from New York City called Lani Blair. 

Kendall and Kim unfollowed Tristan on social media at the time, and other outlets reported additional women. Surprisingly, Khloe remained with Tristan and gave birth to baby True last April.

TMZ asked Kim's best friend Larsa Pippen in LA today about Jordyn living situation in Kylie's guest house. She responded with: "I don't know how much longer she'll be living in the guest house."

When asked further if she would evict her had she been in Kylie's situation. Larsa said: "Yeah I'm sure. I mean I would."

Kylie and Jordyn have been best pals for five years, with Jordyn living in the make-up billionaire's mansion. It's unclear what will happen to their friendship, but Kylie still follows Jordyn on social media.

This morning, someone in Dublin woke up 175,000,000 million euro, and wow gosh, we're sooooo delighted for them.

While we couldn't be more pleased that someone other than ourselves is now mega rich, we couldn't help but ponder on what we would purchase as our first big Euromillions spend. 

A luxurious holiday? A flash car? A mad expensive ostrich skin hand bag? Nah – top of the list has to be growing that property portfolio (or just starting one). We've been creeping around the internet, searching for our perfect habitats in Dublin (seeing as that is where the winning lotto ticket was purchased) and we have compiled a list of our faves that we will probably never be able to afford bu hey, it's fun to fantasize: 

1. Bayview, 17 Sutton Castle, Sutton, Dublin 13, North Dublin City – €1,250,000

You could buy around 140 of these stunning houses for your Euromillions fee.

On the market by Gallagher Quigley, this iconic 19th century mansion with sprawling grounds and a sea view is the perfect family home. It even has a spiral staircase leading from the garden to the exterior terrace where you have a gorge view of Dublin Bay.

This period home was once owned by the Jameson family – so it comes with some glam history as well as walk in wardrobes.

2. Horse Island, Roaring Water Bay, Schull, Co. Cork – €6,750,000

Where else is there to go when you want peace and quiet to count all your money? Why, your own private island of course. 

Now, we know we said we would keep all of our homes to the Dublin region, but with all those millions, chartering a yacht from Dublin bay to Schull shouldn't be too much of an issue. 

The island comes with a STUNNING main home, as well as six guest houses, so it's perfect for family to visit once you've had your fill of solitary island living. The views are breathtaking, and you could probably bride a Deliveroo guy to get the boat over with your order if you tip him well enough. 

3. Monte Alverno, Sorrento Road, Dalkey, South Co. Dublin – €7,500,000

The stand out feature of the house has got to be the stunning figure-of-eight shaped outdoor swimming pool that languishes invitingly in the back garden.

Other external features include an all weather floodlit tennis court and a Chinese garden that has its own waterfall and lily pond.

South facing bedrooms give a glorious sea view, and plant lovers can rejoice in their element with a chilled martini in the jungle of a conservatory. 

4. Arkendale, 6 Arkendale Road, Dalkey, South Co. Dublin – €1,950,000

This Georgian gaff had us shook from the very first picture. Sprawling high ceilings with original stucco work and big bay windows make this home the ideal modem house with original character. 

Currently it has some very interesting wallpaper and pastel carpet choices, a nod to the original design of the home. 

The feature staircase leads to the upstairs where there are five generous bedrooms, while downstairs resides a snooker and cinema room.

5St Georges, St Georges Avenue, Killiney, South Co. Dublin – €9,250,000

This GORGE property honestly has a whiff of Hogwarts magic about it. From the stunning turret to the stain glass windows, it's a marvel to look at. 

The home comes complete with a little church (gas) and the architecture is a nob to the Gothic revival in Ireland. 

The main bedroom has a balcony with panoramic sea views, and everything about it is just magic.

Ireland's favourite celebrity couple are reportedly selling their Goatstown home, which they bought in 2005, for a whopping 1.4 million euro.

The loved-up duo will be moving to Rathmines after buying a large Victorian red brick home on Palmerstown Road.

Huberman and O'Driscoll, both 39, apparently want more space to raise their children, Sadie and Billy.

The rugby legend and actress are known for their down-to-earth vibe and gas social media presence, we're sure they're over the moon with their new gaff.

The high-profile couple allegedly ran up against neighbourhood issues when those living beside them strenuously opposed their plans for a three-storey rear extension and a single-storey side and rear extension.

Their home was sold through private agents Savills, hence why fans can't get a glimpse of the lavish home on 1 Larchfield Road.

Darn, we're just going to have to use our imaginations now, aren't we?

Exclusive walk-throughs of the house were offered to interested buyers only before the sale was agreed.

The family won't be moving into their new home until the new year, despite buying it in 2016.

Amy has said; “That’ll be our last Christmas in the house but that’s good.”

It only takes a quick scroll through Daft.ie, or a passing glance in an estate agents window to realise that Dublin's property market is, for lack of a better term, in absolute bits.

Renters are forced to opt for sub-standard accommodation as they search for properties close to work or college, while first-time buyers are being priced out of the market left, right and centre.

Average house prices in Dublin have now surpassed the 400k mark, which, by our calculations, means we'll be the proud owner of a cosy three bed semi some time mid-2036.

It's enough to make you want to pack it all in and start a new life as dairy farmer on the east coast of Kerry – which, when you consider how much affordable housing becomes once you venture outside The Pale, actually doesn't sound like a bad idea. 

In an attempt to highlight just what you can get for your money, we've done some digging and discovered the dreamiest Cork mansion. 

Set in a tranquil location just a short distance from Fermoy, Ballyclough House is nothing short of a fairytale.

Sitting on just under 2 acres of lush gardens, this dream home boasts a wonderful staircase hall, two large reception rooms, 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.

Oh, and the best part? This gorgeous Elizabethan style mansion is on the market for just €450,000.

Still a big chunk of cash, sure. But when you consider an apartment in Dublin 4 could set you back in excess of €1.5 million, it's serious value for money.

Gigi and Bella Hadid's dad, Mohamed Hadid, has been sentenced to community service after he built a mansion that was too big.

Yes, really.

Mohamed must also pay fines and create a plan to stop eroding the hillside in Bel-Air, after he was told that he could not build a "mammoth mansion" there.

Three years ago, the city of Los Angeles demanded that construction stopped, however, the real estate developer continued building the 30,000-square-foot home on a 1.2 acre plot.

Hadid House

Los Angeles Times reports that "construction continued illegally on the massive house, defying the city order."

The mansion was allegedly "bigger and taller than city rules allowed," and had "bedrooms, decks, and a [70-seat] IMAX theatre that the city said were never approved, according to court documents filed by prosecutors."

Mohamed appeared in court in Los Angeles yesterday and the judge sentenced him to three years probation and 200 hours of community service.

He was also ordered to pay more than $3,000 in fines and repay the city $14,000 to cover building department costs.

In addition, Mr Hadid must also create a plan to stabilise the hillside on which the house sits, because neighbours say it has "been dangerously destabilized."

One of Mohamed's neighbours said that he "should be in jail [because] he violated the city’s ordinances over and over again."

Despite protest however, the aptly named 'Starship Enterprise' will remain in place.

Charlotte Crosby has made the big bucks from Geordie Shore, Ex on the Beach, Celebrity Big Brother and her best-selling books.

But we didn't realise she has enough money to build a huge house from scratch.

It's taken a while, but her new home is finally done, and the reality star decided to show her followers on Snapchat last night.

In the video, she shows her fans her living room, kitchen, bedroom, walk-in wardrobe and even her indoor swimming pool.

But when it came to the stairs, she had a little moan about it.

She began to complain when she described how she had to pull her suitcase a long way up the stairs and it was hard.

Now, we all know that that can be a pain in the a**e, but you have a beautiful mansion, Char! Appreciate it!

All those Lip Kit drops must be paying off as KUWTK star Kylie Jenner has just bought her third mansion of the year.

Since June, the makeup mogul has added a $6 million home and its $4.5 million neighbour to her property portfolio and now Trulia has reported that she’s just dropped $12 million on her latest Hidden Hills gaff.

The 13,200 square foot house sits on 1.4 acres of land and boasts eight bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, “expansive views of the city”, a gourmet kitchen, home theatre, game room, pool and a spa and massage room.

All of the 19-year-old’s properties are in the same area, but her latest purchase is by far the most luxurious yet.

Chloe Khan has hit back at rumours suggesting she's broke by letting her fans take a look inside her massive mansion.

The Celebrity Big Brother star took to Youtube to show off her house, after haters said she had no money and that's why she had to take part in CBB.

The clip begins at the extravagant entrance of the house, and then continues with her taking a LIFT up to the first floor.

The living room looks gigantic and features a huge sofa, an open fireplace and a balcony with gorgeous views.

"So apparently I'm not a Playboy model and I paid thousands of pounds to get into a party," she says as she holds her Playboy magazine covers.

"This is my home, I love my home and I worked very hard for it. Now I live the life that I do, I shouldn't have to try and justify it to people," Chloe added.

Niall Horan might be totally loved up these days but we’re not sure his girlfriend will be loving his new gaff as supposedly it’s haunted.

The pop star is reportedly preparing to move into a £3 million LA mansion which was formerly owned by Hollywood star Gia Scala who died at the property in 1972 in controversial circumstances.

While officially the actress’ death was considered to be the result of an accidental overdose, because her body was covered in bruises and blood when she was found many believe Gia’s death was no accident.  She was aged 38 when she died.

Now another former resident of the house has told The Mirror the actress’ presence can still be felt in the building.

Jack Krane, who grew up in the house, told the paper: "I always asked if someone died in one of these houses, and my parents said no.”

"I have always felt something strange.”

"That house is haunted, for sure. I've had a few ghost stories over there. It's creepy."

Thankfully Jack’s spooky claims don’t seem to be worrying Niall as a Sun source has said: "Niall loves the house and his offer went through at the end of last year. It's got everything he needs and isn't too flashy."

"The place is a construction site at the moment as he is having a lot of work done before he moves in."

Given that Niall's new pad has an outdoor swimming pool and rooftop deck, we're sure he won't be feeling too stressed out in his "haunted" house.
