Reality TV star Kim Kardashian and her husband, rapper Kanye West, are living in the lap of luxury in a New York City penthouse courtesy of Airbnb, the online property marketplace that enables people to list or rent vacation homes.
Kanye is currently travelling across North America on his Saint Pablo Tour, so he, Kim and their children, North (3) and Saint (9 months) have temporarily relocated from their luxury home in Calabasas, Los Angeles, to this 7200-square-foot, $25 million penthouse in the Big Apple.
Kim has already posted a picture of herself on Instagram relaxing at the penthouse, which accommodates eight people. It boasts four bedrooms, six bathrooms, an outdoor kitchen, a rooftop pool, a sauna and a home gym.
The fact that the superstars are staying there is bound to generate great interest in the property on the rental site. However, as the triplex usually costs $10,000 per night and guests have to book a minimum 31-night stay, it will be out of the reach of a sizeable number of people.
Proving that the more you have, the more you get, it appears that the famous family are enjoying their stay for free, courtesy of Airbnb. They could well afford to pay for it though, as Kim has an estimated personal worth of $150 million, and Kanye is worth $145 million.
And don’t expect to see the penthouse featured on Kim’s family’s programme, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, even though the property would receive massive publicity if it was shown. The house rules state that gatherings of 15 or more people require permission, and commercial film, video, television or photographic shoots are prohibited in the building.
The penthouse is listed on Airbnb by real estate agent Andrew Azoulay, where it is described as “insane.” It offers 360 degree views of NYC from its seven terraces and 4400 square foot of outdoor space. Airbnb claims that the Kardashian-West family will be staying there for the next few months. Are we jealous? You betcha!
