On Airbnb Luxe, travelers will find a curated subset of Luxury Retreat’s 5,000 properties, selected after being evaluated on more than 300 criteria for both design and function, such as premium materials and finishes, rare and unique features, chef-grade appliances and the ratio of bathrooms to bedrooms.

Guests booking a Luxe property also will have access to what Airbnb is calling a “trip designer," an employee of Luxury Retreats available to book everything from airport transfers and car rentals to childcare, chef and spa services and activities and experiences - including ones not offered on Airbnb's Experiences platform.
