Airbnb has offered up for a mere $17-a-night a Bridgehampton villa that normally goes for $1,000, Long Island Business News reported. Billed as something out of “The Great Gatsby,” the deal is part of the online hospitality platform’s campaign to rent out homes meant to evoke various literary classics, according to USA Today. Ten hosts around the world agreed to rent their homes at the $17 rate for dates during May, June and July. Potential renters can rent the 6,200-square-foot Bridgehampton home from May 10 to May 12 and May 17 to May 19. The East End estate, which sits on 1.5 manicured acres, has six bedrooms, five-and-a-half bathrooms, a home theater, a game room with a billiards table, a pool and a backyard patio, according to its listing. Other homes that are part of the Airbnb deal include a historic barn in Maine meant to evoke “Charlotte’s Web,” an English estate for “Pride and Prejudice” and a modest Swedish home like Pippi Longstocking’s, among others. [LIBN]
