What's Rising

Mansions that international celebrities are renting out while holidaying in Australia are revealed 

From the privacy of a secluded mansion to the comforts of a personalised at-home experience. 

There are plenty of reasons why more celebrities than ever are rejecting premium hotels for lavish rental properties while staying Down Under.

And according to Monique Eyles and Steve Keir of luxury short-term accommodation service Hotelesque, more celebrities than ever are paying up to $50K-per-week to rent coveted properties that aren’t even advertised to the public.

‘At the end of the day, they’re just human beings like the rest of us, but they do have their own nuances,’ Mr Keir told RealEstate.com of his A-list clientele.

Among the many requests made by visiting stars looking for luxury rentals, Ms Eyles told the publication that space and privacy are most common. 

‘They can hold interviews in the house, they can entertain, cook, or have a private chef come in. They can’t do that in a hotel and many want to be healthy and don’t necessarily want to order room service all the time,’ she said.

“They don’t want to be on top of other people or have the neighbours hear what they’re doing so they want enough room around them for entertaining, or rehearsing,’ she continued.   

Here, Daily Mail Australia takes a look at the most lavish properties A-listers have called home during their travels Down Under.

The building, while fitted with wide picture windows and long balconies, is reminiscent of the many cookie-cutter 1960s-era apartment blocks in the area.
