The vacation rental properties featured on E!'s Keeping up with the Kardashians and Kourtney and Kim Take Miami are seriously luxurious, but all that glamor comes with a hefty price tag! Let Tripping.com help you travel like LA royalty for a fraction of the price.
Philanthropist Mark Weingard's new Iniala Beach House features several villas across 5 acres on secluded Natai Beach. During their Thai vacation, the Kardashians stayed in the main, most luxurious house, paying $150,000 for the week (approx $21,500/night). The vacation package includes services such as a private chef, butler, personal spa, driver, 20-seat theater, and a Swarovski crystal-studded pool table, for starters. The Kardashians can rest easy knowing that between 10-15% of the Iniala's revenue goes to Weingard's Inspirasia Foundation.
For $1,500/night, 14 times less expensive than the Kardashian's rental, you can stay in this 5 bedroom villa with views of (and easy access to) cosmopolitan Surin Beach. Villa Maxia offers many of the same amenities as the Iniala Beach House, including a private fitness room, massage room, sauna, infinity pool, multiple jacuzzis, and 5 full-time staff members.
This massive 7 bedroom mansion on this 5 bedroom villa was used for the filming of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami. Completed in 2012, Palazzo di Mare boasts over 16,000 sq ft of living space, a massage room, and full views of the water and downtown Miami. So how much will all of this cost you? A modest $15,000/night!
This 5 bedroom home is also located on Palm Island and sleeps just as many people as Palazzo di Mare. It has a wine cellar, an aroma therapy shower, four jacuzzis, and a highly coveted downtown Miami waterfront view. Get the same amenities in the same location for $1,800/night, an eighth of the Kardashian price!
As the first Dominican Republic property to make the front cover of Christie's International Real Estate Magazine, Punta Minitas 34 is famous in its own right. This property is truly palatial, with 35,000 sq ft of house, 20 ft ceilings, a private dock, fountains, and a 16-car garage. Valued at $19,500,000, nightly rates start at $7,500.
This 8 bedroom, 15,000 sq ft villa located in a prestigious gated community is available for $2,200/night, which is about a third of the Punta Minitas 34 cost. Between the game room, putting greens, private beach, gazebo, and full-time staff, Villa Castellamonte has everything you could want in a luxury home.
The Kardashians brought the whole family to Mykonos, a small island off the coast of Greece, where they stayed in one of the three Mykonos Retreat Villas for $40,000/week (approx $5,700/night)...and that was the off-season rate! Each of the villas comes with a private beachfront, an infinity pool, and breathtaking Aegean Sea views.
At $1900/night, Villa Eurydice gives visitors a very similar experience for a third of the price! Just like the Kardashian's rental, this villa has an infinity pool, alfresco dining area, modern decor, beachfront views, and several outdoor terraces.
The Kardashian's supposedly rented this Southampton home for the entire summer at a $300,000 flat rate (approx. $3500/night). The 3-acre estate includes a private dock, heated pool, 5 bedrooms, and views of the water on 3 sides.
This 4 bedroom home overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Shinnecock Bay is available for a seventh of the Kardashian price at $500/night. The private road and private beach enables you to relax in seclusion, but the short 8-minute drive to downtown Southampton provides you with the option to experience the entirety of this quaint town. With a horseshoe pit, jacuzzi, pool, and beachfront views, it would be challenge to find a rental better than this!
