'Sex and the City' Fantasy: Rent Samantha's Beach House
Imagine sipping on a cosmopolitan while relaxing on a balcony overlooking the ocean. This summer you can make those "Sex and the City" fantasies come true: the modern Malibu beach abode that character Samantha Jones and her model boyfriend Smith Jerrod canoodled in is available for rent.
Fans of the series will recognize details from the television show's first movie spin-off. During the 2008 film, Samantha took in luxurious views in this nearly 6,000-square-foot glass-front, beachfront home.
Designed by Jay Vanos, the home's arched windows and open floor plan create the illusion of floating over the ocean. The sophisticated abode has 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms - plenty of room for a group of friends seeking a chic experience. But the three-story property, available June through September, will cost a pretty penny -- rent is $100,000 a month.
Decorative elements from some of the film's memorable moments are still intact, including the cozy fireplace from the New Year's Eve scene. The home also takes full advantage of the stunning ocean views. Tenants can catch the sunset on one of the five balconies or from an ocean-facing bedroom.
The interior is decorated in a tastefully modern manner, with a neutral color palette and designer touches, such as a calfskin rug. A spacious kitchen features Caesarstone counter tops, travertine floors and high-end appliances.
For the oenophile there is a wine cellar to store your precious bottles during your stay. Enjoy that wine from the soaking tub or entertainment room complete with a pool table.
With plenty of room, unbeatable views and star quality, this house is the perfect setting for your own blockbuster summer. You just might need to bring some friends to help foot the bill!
