first_img SXSW Exclusive/Airbnb Hualalai’s Top Villa/Airbnb SXSW Exclusive/Airbnb Villa on the Rocks/Airbnb 1 of 4 Villa on the Rocks/Airbnb Next It seems just a few short years ago that Airbnb was a scrappy little startup for budget travelers. While plenty of couch-surfing deals can still be had, the site is also home to some of the swankiest crashpads. Here are four of the most ridiculously over-the-top villas you can rent on Airbnb.Villa on the RocksThe South of France Glimpse the Future of Camper Vans in the Stunning Hymer VisionVenture Previous Hualalai’s Top Villa/Airbnb 1 of 4 It’s hard to stand out at South by Southwest. The iconic Austin event brings together some of the brightest, most creative, most interesting people in the world. You might just be able to buy your way into the event’s elite social circle, provided you’re cool with splashing out on a nearly $10,000-per-night villa. The SXSW Exclusive Villa is exactly what it sounds like: a sprawling, three-property estate with every imaginable amenity all within walking distance of the festival. The pictures tell the whole story. Suffice to say, you won’t be wanting for much while you and your 15 closest friends are crashing here. Think multiple gourmet kitchens, media rooms, fur-lined chairs, Roman pillars, and a stunning outdoor party pool. 1 of 4 Hualalai’s Top Villa/Airbnb Editors’ Recommendations Previous Reunion Zero/Aribnb Reunion Zero/Aribnb It’s fitting that Orlando — home of the classic, over-the-top, family-friendly, all-American vacation — would be home to one of the largest vacation rentals in Florida. Reunion Zero is a 25,000-square-foot behemoth of a villa. In fact, with room for up to 34 guests spread throughout 14 bedrooms and 16 bathrooms, it feels more like a boutique hotel. Add to that amusement-park-worthy amenities, and it’s a wonder guests would ever want to leave. Outside is a large, lazy-river-style swimming pool with two bridges, illuminated fountains, and a sunken pool bar, plus a large spa and a second, rooftop pool. Inside lies a gourmet chef’s kitchen, a home theater, a bowling alley, a multi-sports court, and several game rooms. That the garish contemporary decor borders on “Modern Willy Wonka” only adds to the charm.SXSW Exclusive VillaAustin, Texas Reunion Zero/Aribnb In Hawaii, every oceanfront villa seems grander and more luxurious than the last. Hualalai’s Top Villa rises above most — literally.

22 April 2011The United Nations peacekeeping force in Côte d’Ivoire has begun clearing explosive devices that were left over by combatants during the bloody post-election violence that engulfed the West-African country following the runoff presidential poll last November. Clearance teams fanned out across the country beginning yesterday to collect ammunition, bombs and landmines scattered during the fighting, the UN Operation in Côte d’Ivoire (UNOCI) said in a press statement. The refusal by former president Laurent Gbagbo to stand down after he lost the UN-certified run-off poll in November plunged the West African country into four months of violence, with his troops pitted against forces loyal to Alassane Ouattara, the internationally recognized President. Mr. Gbagbo surrendered last week and was taken into custody. UNOCI has provided the public with the telephone numbers to call to inform the mission of the presence of suspicious devices anywhere in the country. Pending the arrival of specialized teams members of the public have been advised not to touch unknown objects and prohibit children from doing so. People should mark the location of any suspicious devices and then call UNOCI, according to the statement. “UNOCI in accordance with its mandate will remain with the Ivorian people to support them and help restore normal life as quickly as possible,” the statement added. Meanwhile, a Ukrainian soldier serving with UNOCI has died in an accident that happened at Bouaké airport on Tuesday. Sulin Viacheslav, 37, arrived in Côte d’Ivoire last month on secondment to UNOCI from the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL), where he had served since December last year. “UNOCI extends its sincere condolences to the Ukrainian Government and the bereaved family,” the mission said in a statement. His death brings to 54 the number of UNOCI military personnel who have died since the deployment of the mission in April 2004.Cote read more
