BRADENTON, FL – When it comes to attracting guests to short-terms rentals, often the more eye-catching they are, the better. However, an Airbnb host in Bradenton has exceeded all expectations in that regard with an extravagant home on offer that features an eye-popping and fun pink flamingo theme throughout, ensuring their guests will always have a memorable stay.
Owned and designed by property investor Darline Martins, the rental property – a Mediterranean Revival originally built in 1925 – is listed on the Airbnb website as the “FUN home,” which rents for approximately $250 to $350 per night, depending on what season it currently is.
The home – coming in at 1,468 square-feet on a 7,501 square-foot lot, with two bedrooms and two baths – is located at 2520 11th Avenue West in West Bradenton, with Martins described it as, “eclectic, a hint of mid-century with a splash of Floridian Chic.” But that description fails to do the property justice, as once you enter the abode, guests are faced with an interior that is lavishly decorated with pastels and flamingos everywhere they look.
From bright tropical wallpapers to a flamingo-themed bedroom and a plethora of vintage-style amenities – including a gumball machine, a record player and a 1980’s-style arcade game – the home seems perfect for those looking for something unusual… especially for those looking for a fun experience to photograph and post on social media.
The kitschiness continues into the backyard, where guests can enjoy an artificial turf lawn with an archway that includes swings; a space for grilling is also available, as is a gas-powered fire pit with a semicircle seating area, a giant chessboard, and several other yard-based games of amusement. And when you need to cool off, an above-ground pool and hot tub are at the disposal of guests as well.
And if you’re sufficiently taken with the property, Martins is currently attempting to sell it with an asking price of $609,000, which includes new appliances, furniture, wall and window treatments, with all of its “epic decorations” included.
