In a recent report, furniture company Joybird revealed the most expensive Airbnbs in every U.S. state, and we're shocked by the most costly residence.

By far, the most expensive Airbnb in the United States is The Villa at the Estate of Yountville, located in Yountville, California. Per night, the five-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom villa with a private pool, daily chef-prepared breakfast, and hot tub for 10 guests costs $15,000. For three nights, the total would be $45,000 before taxes, which comes out to $4,500 when split among 10 people.

In second place, we have the VIP Alaska Yacht Charter-Inner Pas, a luxury yacht in Juneau, Alaska, with four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a hot tub for six guests. At $10,000 per night, a three-night stay comes out to $34,235 (which includes a service fee).

For comparison's sake, the least expensive U.S. Airbnb on Joybird's list is located in North Dakota and costs $3,305 (including a cleaning and service fee) for a three-night stay in July 2022. It appears to be this listing, which features four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a private pool for 12 guests.
