You can stay in The Bachelor New Zealand mansion - for $10,000 a night

Pics 24/03/2016
The Bachelorettes have long cleared out of their Auckland mansion, and now the owners are looking to make a pretty penny off the back of the show’s popularity.
 
Actually make that $10,000 worth of pennies. Per night. That’s right, Jordan’s love nest has been listed on airbnb.com for a staggering $10,723 per night including service fees.
 
The advert panders to “VIP guests” and brags that visitors who arrive by helicopter, boat or sea plane will be offered the utmost “privacy and security”. The listing also describes the mansion as “an ideal filming location for media productions”.
 
The Solsbury Hill residence boasts six bedrooms, five lounges, six bathrooms and two fully-equipped two kitchens.
 
The property’s manicured grounds give way to a private boardwalk, where many a bitch-fest took place during the earlier episodes of season two. A jetty extending into the Mahurangi Harbour is equipped with a fishing boat, kayaks, jet-ski, ski biscuit and paddle boards “for play in the still inlet waters”.
 
The estate’s main residence includes a traditional English-style pub complete with slate billiard table and dartboard. And of course no mansion is complete without a wine cellar, although the Bachelorettes may have drank the place dry of Lindaur rosé.
 
The “resort-quality” heated pool that featured so often on the show is complemented by a wet bar and open fire for those chilly winter evenings.
 
Guests are invited to make use of the mansion’s golf cart and Range Rover, as they plan escapes to the surrounding beaches and vineyards. Those who book a getaway at Solsbury Hill will have an onsite chef and household manager at their disposal to plan a “bespoke stay”, including personally tailored day trips and excursions.
 
With a handy heli pad located on site, the listing promises the estate is just a 10 minute flight from Mechanics Bay.
 
Other amenities include an organic fruit and vegetable garden, a petanque field and stunning ocean or countryside views from every room.
 
The property was listed at airbnb.com just days ago, with the “host” Annelise’s account being created in March 2016. Solsbury Hill is yet to receive any reviews from guests on the site.
