Stay at a remote desert Airbnb that comes with the keys to a brand-new car

A new Airbnb experience will take travellers to a home in Nevada so remote it has no address – but it does come with the keys to a brand-new car.

The incredible home is located in a stretch of land near Death Valley and has no address, only co-ordinates on a map.

The Rondolino Residence will let guests enjoy 80 acres of land all to themselves and the remote location means visitors have the chance to see the sky light up with stars. The home is not the only luxurious part of the listing; guests will be chauffeured from Las Vegas McCarran International Airport to the property and will dine under the stars with a meal prepared by a private chef.

But, the experience is not limited to a great place to stay – guests will get to take a brand new car for a spin. The rental is a partnership between Airbnb and Audi, meaning guests will get the opportunity to try out the new Audi R8 Coupe.

Visitors can take the car for a spin on a landscape “with nearly endless straightaways and dry lakebeds to experience a potential 0-60 mph in as little as 3.2 seconds”, according to a statement from Audi.

“By day, you’ll get the chance to experience the car to its full potential in Death Valley, and by night sleep under the stars in one-of-a-kind Airbnb architectural gem”.

Seven groups – of up to four guests – will have the opportunity to rent the home, at a price of about $600 a night, for a three-day/two-night experience in October. Airbnb and Audi even released an advertisement, showing off the speeding cars racing through the desert.

The listing also notes that guests will have to be ready to handle the unique driving experience, noting: “if you have a heart condition, consult a physician before driving the Audi R8. If you suffer from motion sickness, this experience might not be for you. It’s required to keep your hands at nine and three o’clock, always wear your safety belt and no barefoot driving. Don’t play with the scorpions. Stay hydrated. Don’t forget to update your bucket list”.
