Now, for $6,000 a night, you and your friends could stay in one of the most haunted locations in North America, a place with a long, troubled history of conflict, deception, heartbreak, and Juan Pablo Galavis. Yes, I’m talking about Villa de la Vina, better known as the Bachelor mansion, in Agoura Hills, California, which is now available to rent on Airbnb.
With seven bedrooms and eight and a half bathrooms, the home can house 13 guests. There is also a pool for you to swim in, the same one in which Evan the erectile-dysfunction expert gave himself a bloody nose while he was diving in one day during season 12 of The Bachelorette.
According to its description, “This 200-year-old Mediterranean-style revival house, with its one-of-a-kind pool and romantic archways, exudes the rich feeling of a picturesque hideaway with canyon, mountain, and vineyard views.” You know what else it exudes? Bad vibes. Imagine trying to sleep at night knowing you’re in the same space where Chad Johnson angrily inhaled hundreds of pounds of deli meat in between fights with his fellow contestants and where Kelsey from season 24 of The Bachelor lost her shit after she heard another woman open her special bottle of Champagne, only to have this happen when she went to open another bottle:
Sure, technically the mansion isn’t only inhabited by perfectly tan, toned aspiring influencers hoping to land the love of their life, or at least a good sponsorship deal, and getting their spirits crushed in the process. It’s owned and lived in by a family that moves into a hotel whenever the show films. Due to COVID, however, the current season of The Bachelorette was filmed in a quarantine bubble at the La Quinta Resort & Club in Palm Springs, and rumor has it that the next season of The Bachelor is currently filming in Pennsylvania.
So for a few thousand dollars a night, the Bachelor mansion could be yours. Could you really sleep surrounded by all those ghosts, though?
