If you’re looking for a cheap Airbnb in Central Ohio, the ones below aren’t it.
The Dispatch searched Central Ohio on Airbnb to find the most expensive short-term rentals on the market for any available date (prices will vary depending on the time of the year). But with an average Columbus Airbnb costing $125 a night, according to AirDNA, a short-term rental analytic service, these listings definitely clear the hurdle of above average.
You may notice that there is certainly a trend. Many of these listings are on the Muirfield Village Golf Club course, the site of the annual PGA tour Memorial Tournament (held June 6-9 this year).
Here are the eight most expensive Airbnb rentals in the Central Ohio area:
$10,000 a night: Muirfield mansion comes with putt-putt course, speakeasy
The most expensive option on the list is a six bed, eight bath mansion in Muirfield Village on the golf course. Only available during the week of the Memorial Tournament in June, this listing goes for $10,000 a night (a full week’s stay totals out at $79,882 after taxes and fees) and houses 12, according to the listing.
In addition to being situated right along the golf course, it also features an indoor “speakeasy” and a full 18-hole putt-putt course.
$2,717 a night: Powell-area house sleeps 16+

The listing also offers a hot tub, game room and proximity to Muirfield Village and other attractions in the northern suburbs.
$1,999 a night: Muirfield Village rental
If the $10,000 a night mansion is too much space for you, this Muirfield Village Airbnb listing is $1,999 a night to rent the second floor of a home minutes from the course. The rental, four bedrooms and six baths, is right outside the 10th hole entrance. It also comes with full access to the driveway. You will have to share common spaces with the host.
