Stay in your favourite celebrity’s home thanks to Airbnb
Airbnb gives you the chance to stay at the homes of the rich and famous - or at least get a sneaky peek!

David Copperfield
 -The magician’s home, Musha Cay at Copperfield Bay is a 150-acre private resort island with all the trappings in the Bahamas. The resort accommodates 24 guests at a time and includes a 10,000 square-foot house, a thatched-roof beach house, two guest villas, and a five-bedroom beachside villa. 
Price: $57,000/night

Kurt Cobain -For something more affordable and decidedly  less glam, Nirvana fans can stay in the apartment where Cobain wrote In Utero. The Fairfax/Melrose one-bedroom apartment that Cobain called home from 1991 -1992 will only set you back $150 a night.
