This Is How Much It Costs To Vacation Like Jay Z & Beyoncé
If you happen to have a little extra money in your piggy bank next summer, you can live like Jay Z and Beyoncé. Pop music’s first couple have impressive properties all over the globe, but none as lavish as the Hampton property they rented in the summer of 2012.
Dubbed “The Sandcastle” by its owner, the 12 bedroom, 12 bathroom Brigehampton mansion is available to rent in July and August. The one catch is it will run you $1 million USD for the month, or $550,000 USD for two weeks. And while the price tag is much, much steeper than your average Airbnb, once you hear about the many outrageous features, you’ll understand why.
Built by the renowned Hamptons developer Joe Farrell, the house comes equipped with its own movie theater, basketball and tennis courts, an expansive heated pool, a bowling alley, a private gym, an underwater stereo system, and a spa replete with a sunken Jacuzzi. It’s no wonder Jay and Bey dropped $400,000 USD to live there.
'It is its own paradise holiday-resort built on 12 acres and it's absolutely spectacular - with all the living space, the pool and activities available there's no need to leave the house for the entire vacation,” said Gary DePersia of the Corcoran group. “We've had lots of VIP guest and some have returned in subsequent summers. It's the perfect getaway.”
