Beyonce, Super Bowl, 2013

Before she stood in "formation" on the stage of the Super Bowl 50 halftime show, Beyoncé prepared for the imminent spotlight in a California hideaway perfectly fit for the reigning queen of music. 

The 34-year-old mom shelled out a pretty penny for a $10,000-a-night 12-acre estate in the Los Altos Hills of Calif. with sweeping views of the entire San Francisco Bay Area.

It was a flawless set up for the Carter family and their posse. Outfitted with five bedrooms and more than eight bathrooms, the property also boasted an outdoor fireplace, vanished edge pool and spa. 

While we're sure rehearsals were enough to keep the songstress sweating, if anyone wanted to work out, they could just turn to the in-house fitness center. 

It was a Super weekend Airbnb

No need to give up privacy by leaving the house for dinner, either. The state-of-the-art kitchen featured five ovens, a steam oven and three dishwashers. As for fresh produce, any member of the family could simply step out into the adjoining orchard with 60 fruit trees, rooftop vegetable garden and on-property chickens for a freshly-hatched egg. 

To top it all off, the home featured the one necessary tool for any Grammy-winning performer: a piano. Queen Bey was more than set.

When it finally came time for the star to leave her retreat and publicly return to the football stage, she did not disappoint, wowing the crowd with the first live performance of her surprise track "Formation."

"I wanted people to feel proud," Beyonce told Entertainment Tonight of the fresh song, "and have love for themselves."

Bey certainly had love for her superstar digs. The singer shared a photo of herself on Instagram cozying up by the house's outdoor fire pit. 

"It was a Super weekend Airbnb," she wrote.

Super with a capital S.
