Thought Airbnb was the way to rent some kickass vacation houses? Well, that’s so passé. All you needed now was to attend Festival de Cannes 2016, get an invitation to the amfAr – Cinema against AIDS gala, have a spare 300,000$ to bid on Leonardo DiCaprio‘s Palm Spring abode!
Well, on a serious note ‘The Revenant‘ star took the stage of amfAr gala at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc and spoke about finding a cure for AIDS. To help out the foundation with the research, he took a rather cool approach – he offered a week’s stay at his luxurious estate in Palm Springs to the highest bidder present.
The winner gets to stay at the Academy Award Winner‘s house for an exact 163 hours, startingJanuary 16, 3PM – 10AM January 23,2017. The house can accommodate 12 people and they can have a pleasant stay until and unless they abide by the ‘house rules’. It’s definitely a dream-come-true for the winner although the heartthrob clearly stated and stressed that he won’t be present at any time during the stay.
Well, so no quality time and wine-n-dine with the star, but hello a week at his house seems enough. ‘Charity truly begins at home’, we definitely second that Leo!
With the success of the first auction, he offered up the house again and settled for 150,000$ the next time.
Well, it’s not the first time ‘The Wolf of Wall Street‘ star has come up with something like this, the last year at the event he had offered a dinner date at his Yacht!
Also, present at the event was Kevin Spacey and who had something interesting to offer too. The ‘House Of Cards‘ star offered a Tennis match, a lunch and a chance to be an extra in ‘House Of Cards’ which fetched a cool 500,000$ in all.
And as to the fashion aspect of the event, the two dashing men are wearing none another than Giorgio Armani.
Until next time… XOXO
