This Airbnb in the Middle of the Desert Comes With a ‘Free’ Audi
You could say that these two brands went the distance to sell their product. Audi, which was the official sponsor of this year’s Emmy Awards, partnered with Airbnb to send fans to the middle of nowhere, with keys to one of their luxury cars.
Through Sept. 24, you have the opportunity to book the Rondolino Residence—a prefabricated building, commissioned by an Italian author in 2002, that’s in a secluded region of Death Valley, Nevada—for $610 a night (with a two-night minimum). To get around (or to just hit ungodly speed records on the desert highways), you’ll have access to an Audi R8.
Although the campaign’s special offer ends on Saturday, Sept. 24, you can book the Rondolino Residence anytime you want to drop off the grid for a few days (book a stay here).
