Soccer star Lionel Messi has had a whirlwind week. On August 5, it was announced that he would be leaving the FC Barcelona team after 21 years due to contract issues. By August 10, he’d signed with the Paris Saint-Germain team, where he’ll reportedly be paid between $35 and $41 million per year.
But let’s rewind a little bit. Not long before the explosive news and Messi’s tearful public goodbye to his former team, he, his wife, Antonela Roccuzzo, and their three sons, Thiago, 8, Mateo, 5, and Ciro, 3, enjoyed a relaxing getaway in Key Biscayne, Florida, at a Vrbo vacation rental, a representative for the company confirmed to AD. Messi super fans might be interested to know that it is indeed possible to book a stay at the very same home as the soccer legend—if you’re able to blow $10,000 per night, that is.
The boxy, white, modern-style home sits right on the water, and has five bedrooms and five full and one half bathrooms. Nearly every room features floor-to-ceiling glass windows looking out at the infinity pool and bay, and there is a deck that wraps around nearly the entire home that is perfect for taking in the gorgeous view. The ground floor features plenty of patio space underneath the deck, for more shaded and private outdoor lounging.

During his stay at the pad, Messi shared pictures and videos on Instagram of himself and his family enjoying the pool and playing soccer in the yard. During the same Florida vacation, it appears the family of five also paid a visit to the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, which is located about a 40 minute drive from the Vrbo rental and is—uniquely–shaped like a giant, windowed guitar.
