Airbnb might make traveling easier for us mortals, but Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are definitely getting the gold star treatment. 

The Los Angeles-based power couple are staying in New York through October, and they’re living in an apartment listed on Airbnb. But before you get the impression that their stay will resemble any Airbnb trip you might have been on: The penthouse they’ve rented is worth $25 million, and they have it all to themselves. 

The Manhattan property boasts five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a gym, private pool, sauna, and seven terraces. 

It appears that all Kim had to do was one of the signature Kardashian-Jenner sponcon moves: Copy and paste a pre-approved caption onto one of her photos, and blast it out to her more than 81 million followers.

“Just checked into our NYC penthouse,” Kardashian wrote. “Thanks @airbnb for our home away from home.”

Not bad for an apartment share.
