19 Amazing Famous Buildings & Celebrity Houses On Airbnb

Nikki Barr

If there's one amazing thing to come out of Airbnb (apart from its general awesomeness), it's having access to some of the most exclusive and historically enriched homes across the globe.

And while it's great being able to visit Charles Dickens' house on one of London's infamous Open House Weekends, it's not quite the same as sleeping within those same walls.

From Kurt Cobain's former New York apartment to Jimi Hendrix's former holiday getaway and Ava Gardner's 1940's residence, there really are some incredible places to stay around the world.

1. Julie Andrews' home, aka The Rubber House - Accord, New York, £328 per night.
