It is a service that allows individuals to list their personal abodes when they are not otherwise in use, giving guests access to unique vacation rentals around the world. If you’re looking to bypass the San Francisco luxury hotel stay, and prefer to shack up in a truly unconventional home instead, you'll want to check out this place.
This one-bedroom, three-bath, 3,500-square-foot private Art Residence mixes Asian, Old Hollywood and Middle Eastern influences to create fun, relaxing and comfortable spaces throughout. The property owners welcome families, vacationers, photographers and film production crews to use their funky home for work or play.
Each room is filled with some not-so-common décor like arcade games, a suit of armor, motorcycles, a life-size nutcracker and several studio props. Many of the rooms also come complete with their own themes like the Grace Kelly Room, Hollywood Glamour Room, Buddha Room and 50s Room. There is certainly no lack of imagination and thought that went into the selection of furnishings and accessories.
Outside, there is a garden compound spanning over 10,000-square-feet featuring a pool, several cozy lounge areas, Japanese Zen garden, classy cabana lounge, Bali tropic garden, Kyoto garden and a pet villa especially made for your furry friend. Another interesting element is the period vehicle collection and a vintage 1959 fully restored Airstream trailer that has been converted into a tea room.
The owners provide free shuttle service to and from the subway and will also pick up guests in one of their luxury vehicles including an Aston Martin Vanquish, a 1952 Jaguar C-Type, a Mercedes G500, or a Mercedes E350. The minimum stay is seven days with the weekly rate currently set at $5,250 and monthly at $18,000. There is also a $300 security deposit and $250 cleaning fee.
