Material girls, rejoice. You can now stay the night at Madonna’s former luxury home in London via HomeAway.
Located in South Kensington, Madonna and her now ex-husband, director Guy Ritchie, owned and lived in the “Queen’s Gate Mews” flat from 1999-2003 — the singer’s “Music” era, for reference — before trading it out for a bigger property. Scenes from the 2004 action film “Layer Cake” featuring Daniel Craig were also filmed in the apartment.
With A-List celebrity emanating out of every nook and cranny of the flat, stays are currently listed for about $963 a night. The home boasts large arched windows, high ceilings, a stainless steel kitchen, two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a close proximity to Hyde Park.
All and all, it’s not too much of a stretch from a really nice Airbnb — but it does have quite the history. And hey, if you stay there long enough — maybe you’ll too acquire a British accent.
The Best Credit Card for Booking a HomeAway
If you’re booking through HomeAway, we recommend using the Chase Freedom Unlimited, which earns 1.5x points on all purchases, or The Blue Business℠ Plus Credit Card from American Express, which earns 2x Membership Rewards points on all purchases (up to $50,000 a year; then 1x thereafter), as opposed to the Chase Sapphire Preferred, which will not earn 2x points on purchases at HomeAway even though it seems like they would count as travel.
Why is this? HomeAway purchases don’t code as travel purchases, but rather usually code as “real estate” or “property management.” (Since HomeAway was purchased by Expedia in 2015, however, it’s possible the online travel agency could change the merchant category code for the company at some point.)
