Shack Up in Richard Branson's Private Island for Just $25,400

August 17, 2010 at 11:15 AM | by | ()

Necker Island has been reserved as Richard Branson's hideaway and the backdrop for the occasional Victoria's Secret catalog photo shoot, but now you have a chance to hang in the beautiful locale in the British Virgin Islands. And no, we aren't suggesting you become a scantily clad VS model to do it.

Normally the entire private island is rented out, but during Celebration Weeks—which take place select times throughout the year—couples, singles or families can book one of 14 rooms individually and share the island.

Reportedly, Chad Hurley was paid 694,087 Google shares for his lion's share percentage of YouTube.  That translates to around $326 million, and God knows how many brazillians.

Since Chad Hurley just won the Google lottery we figured we would give him some unsolicited advice on how to celebrate--hotel style.

Book the Mansion at MGM Grand for the weekend of February 16-18.  Going to Vegas that weekend allows you to shake hands with NBA team owners who will be in town for the 2007 All Star game--you know you want to buy a team.  Oh, while your at it, go ahead and rub Cuban's nose in your success.  Sure this will run you in excess of $5,000 a night, and you will have to shell out extra for booze and grub, but dude, for you, this is like throwing nickels into a water fountain.

Throw a giant party, one like the quiet, super luxury Mansion has never seen.  Your guests will be able to enjoy a 12,000 square foot Villa with original Picassos on the walls.  

While you are there, can you shoot an updated Mansion video, post it to YouTube and send it to us?  Thanks.

Until we get Chad's video (don't hold your breath), we will have to live with FrankAu's Mansion video, which you can watch post click.
