Olympian Nastia Liukin rents her house on Airbnb while she’s in Rio

Want to house sit for Nastia Liukin while she’s in Rio? The retired gymnast and Olympic champion is renting out her luxe high-rise Boston Harbor apartment on Airbnb while she’s away commentating for the 2016 Olympics.

Besides the swanky accommodations and the fun experience of watching her on TV from her own house, it’s all for a good cause. All proceeds from the $1,250 a night listing will benefit a nonprofit that is close to Liukin’s heart, the Corey C. Griffin Foundation, which provides healthcare and education to families in need as well as a support network for young men and women with a passion for entrepreneurship.

The one bedroom, one bath apartment features an open living room and kitchen area covered in gorgeous hardwood floors. A granite countertop island separates the two spaces and doubles as a dining table for two. Stainless steel appliances and mahogany cabinets give the kitchen a cozy and luxurious feel.



Liukin, who decorated the place in neutral colors, has added special and unique touches throughout. From cookbooks on the kitchen counter, to scented candles on the living room coffee table, there are delightful accessories in every room of the house.

In the bedroom, you’ll find a charming tufted headboard, rustic side tables and dresser, and a large window with views of the city. The bathroom features his-and-her sinks, a large bathtub and a glass-door-enclosed shower. You’ll also have access to the high-rise building’s amenities including a pool and fitness center. There’s also a movie room that would be perfect for an Olympic Games viewing party.
