Dubai's most insane Airbnb listings

Featuring butlers, temperature-controlled pools and Bentleys.

Meryl D'Souza June 2, 2016

On May 17, Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing announced it had signed a Memorandum of Understanding with online rental site Airbnb to promote hosting in the emirate.

We'll save you the boring contract talk from the agreement, but essentially it means that both Dubai homeowners and renting tenants can now list their homes on Airbnb, as long as they get the correct licence.

So now that there’s no confusion regarding the structure and permission about letting out your home, we've taken the trouble to sift through the best Dubai listings - not including serviced apartments. And by best, we mean the most insane and ridiculously luxurious.

We’ve even made sure these guys are verified with decent reviews to confirm they’re not dodgy dealers. You’re welcome.

Host: NoDaud
Accommodation type: Entire apartment
Price: $1029/night
Minimum stay: 1 night
Location: Jumeirah Beach Residence 

The only superhost on the list, NoDaud doesn’t hold back on spoiling his guests.

Not content with providing his visitors with a four-bedroom duplex apartment with a private pool on the balcony, five flat screen TVs, an Xbox and a pool table, NoDaud’s penthouse on Jumeirah Beach Residence comes with a butler and the option of using a chauffeur with access to NoDaud’s Bently, Volkswagen Van and Range Rover – depending on how you choose to go around while you’re visiting Dubai.

Host: Maria
Accommodation type: Entire villa
Price: $1895/night
Minimum stay: 5 nights 
Location: Palm Jumeirah  

It’s normal for people to live like celebrities when they’re on holiday. What’s the point of working hard through the year if you’re not going to indulge? When you book a 8,000-square-foot, five-bedroom villa that comes with a temperature-controlled private pool, a private beach, an al-fresco dining pergola and an entertainment room, that’s when you live like a celebrity.

This is the ultimate party home.

Location: Palm Jumeirah

The five-bedroom villa located on the manmade Palm Island is kid friendly and comes with a pool and a landscaped garden. In case you’re wondering why this one doesn’t come with a Jacuzzi like a few on the list, it’s because here you have access to your very own private beach. Don’t stress about commuting from the heart of the city to the villa, Kamilia has her driver on call to take your around.
