If you’ve ever watched The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, you know the pool that comes with Villa de la Vina, aka “The Mansion.” That pool and the epic southern California pad it sits outside can now be yours for $7,500 a night.
Since the pandemic forced filming of the shows to move, Villa de la Vina is up for rent on Airbnb.
The 10-acre property nestled into the Santa Monica Mountains near Malibu boasts seven unique bedrooms — several with balconies — eight-and-a-half bathrooms, two jacuzzis, a pool table, an in-home bar, and that dreamy infinity pool with those arches and mountain views you know so well.
The Mediterranian-style mansion sits inside a gated community about 10 minutes from the beach. And with 10,000 square feet of indoor space and 20,000 square feet of outdoor living space, there’s plenty of personal space for the 13 guests the property can accommodate.
The price for the sprawling villa starts at $5,999 a night. Renters will need to pay an additional cleaning fee of $500 and a service fee of $918.
If you’re planning on using this as an opportunity to film your own reality show, you’ll have to move on. Filming, professional photography, and parties are banned. Smoking and pets also aren’t allowed.
And The Cut reminds us the idyllic backdrop doesn’t exactly exude romance. It describes Villa de la Vina as a "deeply haunted mansion" with a track record of bad vibes.
The Mansion has hosted nearly every season of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette and does have a history of hosting conflict, deception, heartbreak, and so much drama.
To book: airbnb.com, from $7,500/night
