Who needs a full-service hotel when you can enjoy your vacation with the privacy that comes with a gorgeous estate?
Gwyneth Paltrow jetted to Punta Mita, Mexico to enjoy the long weekend with her children, Moses Martin and Apple Martin, and boyfriend Brad Falchuk, and instead of staying in one of the celebrity-friendly resorts in the area, the Goop creator chose to use Airbnb for her getaway. Even though she chose to use a service that's popular with many regular people, her selection was anything but average.
The Iron Man star selected a 6-bedroom seaside
house mansion that rents for $40,000 per week and is worth $30 million. The gorgeous property features two infinity pools, a home theater and, perhaps the best part, farm-to-table meals cooked by the estate's chef, which can be enjoyed either in the home's central dining room or outdoor palapa. Don't worry—both comfortably seat 12, so you don't have to worry about cutting the guest list.
When you're done swimming in either pool, feel free to enjoy an indoor shower that feels like it is outdoors. Placed in a very private alcove of the house, one of the bathrooms features a floor-to-ceiling window allowing a guest to overlook the pool and ocean while he/she bathes beneath an overhead shower. Forget the beach! We could stand in the shower all day long.
After a long, relaxing day on the estate's grounds, Paltrow and her people could fall asleep in bedrooms that feature outdoor access. Instead of waking up and taking a trip to the beach, all they had to do (and you could do) was get out of bed and open the French doors.
Not. Too. Shabby.
After looking at these gorgeous photos, you'll never want to stay in a hotel again. Even Paltrow couldn't believe how lucky she was, as she posted a pic of her legs on the sandy shores from her vacation and captioned it, "Pinch me." She and Falchuk were spotted enjoying a gorgeous day on the beach Friday, where Paltrow showed off her bikini body in a white swimsuit before hitting the ocean with her boyfriend.
Sounds like a heck of a way to celebrate the holiday weekend!
