It’s not even September yet and you better believe we snowbirds here in Canada are already heavy into our travel plans to head down south this winter. But why go to any ol’ resort when you can now stay at Betsey Johnson‘s new Airbnb, BetseyVilla, in Mexico? For just $788 CAD per night, you can rent out the four-bedroom, six-bathroom estate and live your best life, Betsey style.
Price tag a little steep? Here are 5 reasons to rent it out that might help justify the bill:
1. It’s Instagrammable AF
This palatial Mexican escape is right on the water with it’s own private beach, gym, pool and staff ready to be at your complete service. Literally every room in Betsey’s humble abode is beyond gorgeous and will up your IG game within a matter of minutes upon arrival. So go ahead and post away because if you didn’t ‘gram it, did it even happen?
2. It’s in Zihuatanejo, Mexico
Zihuatanejo is the third most-visited city in Mexico but still has a small town vibe that’s appealing to travellers wanting a low-key relaxing getaway. Betsey’s escape is just 30 minutes away the Zihuatanejo airport on Mexico’s Pacific Coast, and the same distance to town, making easy travel and local shopping totally doable.
3. She’s an OG Girlboss
Betsey is living proof that age really is just a number. At a spry 75 years old, Betsey still runs her company, designs, has starred in her own reality show and competed on Dancing With The Stars. We imagine that Betsey’s home is chock full of her empowering energy and inspiration to soak in during your stay.
4. She’s a Fashion Legend
A star in the industry since the late 60s, Betsey has literally done it all and she shows no signs of slowing down. Known for her bright hair, wild outfits and fun demeanour, getting to stay in Betsey’s tropical crib is a legit fashion girl’s dream come true.
5. It’s a Maximalist’s Heaven
Casa Betsey may be considered a little over-the-top to many people but to those who know her and her signature style, you’ll see it’s classic Betsey to a T! Besides, if you’re bored of seeing the ‘minimalist’ lifestyle overloading your feed, you’ll feel rejuvenated in Betsey’s lively space that comes complete with a zillion-and-one portraits of her throughout the house.
Betsey’s home was originally designed to be a Italian style villa but after a massive reno with Mexico City-based architect Andrés Benítez, the estate now reflects a kind of Mexican-Italianate style that we can’t help but fall in love with.
