5 Luxury Thai Villas You Can Rent On AirBnb
When we think of luxury rental homes and extravagant holiday retreats, AirBnB isn’t usually what springs to mind. But you may want to think again. When the budget-friendly rent-a-home site acquired Luxury Rentals in 2017, a whole new crowd of sophisticated travellers were catered to. With over 4,000 jaw-droppingly lavish villas available to lease, planning your dream holiday has never been so easy (nor expensive). So we gave ourselves the painstaking job of finding five swanky Thai spots for you and your family to consider. Only requirement: Very deep pockets.
