As such, they buy vacation homes or properties in the country and abroad, where they can have some peace and quiet right now.
But whenever they have work to do there are no guests on these properties which would be a shame. Fortunately, some celebrities have chosen to turn these places into an Airbnb so that others can relax as they do.
The holiday season is the perfect time to rent an Airbnb with friends or family, so why not try one owned by a celebrity? Here are some of the celebrity properties you can book on Airbnb:
Marjorie Barretto River Park Rest
Probably the most popular local Airbnb celebrity, this villa in Calumpet, Bulacan, owned by the Pareto family can sleep up to 16 guests.
She officially welcomed guests last October, with Marjorie and her daughter Julia personally giving a tour of the lounge’s guests during their first three weekends on Airbnb.
After purchasing it two decades ago, Marjorie restored the villa with old-world charm and a modern Filipino vibe as a nature-inspired retreat with bamboo-and-wicker ceilings and Capiz shell windows.

And to add a more personal touch to the precious antiques, furniture, accessories and heritage paintings that Marjorie inherited from her mother.
With four large en-suite bedrooms, lounge, large private pool, outdoor dining area, fully fitted open plan kitchen with braai and balcony with stunning views of the Angat River, accommodation on the property is at P25, 000 per night.
Casa Esperanza Zsa Zsa Padilla
Casa Esperanza in Lucban, Quezon is the weekend home and passion project of singer Zsa Zsa Padilla and her partner Conrad Onglao, who consider themselves nature lovers and call the property their second home.
In his description on Airbnb, Zsa Zsa said Casa Esperanza—which borrows from the singer’s first name—is a rustic-modern design, with a large woodland garden, and a planned farmhouse.
Perhaps the only caveat is that there are no meals included in the three cassettes, but cooking is allowed and Zsa Zsa can suggest a chef at Lucban for takeaway and some restaurants with delivery.
As for the fit itself, each casita has its own luxurious bathrooms, while the main house has a living room, kitchen, on-suite dining area, service area, garage, greenhouse, and infinity pool.
Overall, Casa Esperanza accommodation costs PHP 19,600 per night.
Yassi Pressman’s Redkey Lakehouse
Actress Yasi Pressman previously said in August 2021 that she had finished building a home near Lake Skogog in Ontario in Canada, which has since opened on Airbnb.
Dozens of guests have stayed at the Redkey Lakehouse since then, and it’s not hard to see why, given the luxurious and serene experience it provides.
The lakefront property faces west (perfect for sunsets) and is equipped with a dock and gazebo – also converted into a secluded game room with bar – perfect for those seeking to ride Lake Scugog or go fishing.
Ten guests can be comfortably accommodated in four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms for 31,561 rupees per night.
Ballester Circa Reporters
Coming soon to Airbnb is the Balustre Cerca farmhouse in Cavite co-owned by journalists Suzanne Enriquez, Atom Araulo, Marc Salazar, Branden Mela, and Alex Baltazar.
Balustre Cerca is where the five journalists regularly take their families for some time, given their bed and breakfast origins.
The property comes with four air-conditioned cabins, a swimming pool, pavilion, outdoor kitchen, and parking.
