Fancy holidaying like the Rooneys this new year? You could be in luck, as they’ve opened their Barbados mansion to the public – but it could cost you an eye watering £25,000.
Wayne Rooney has put his Bajian villa up for rent, where guests can spend a week living like a multi-millionaire.
But those looking for a January getaway in 2017 could fork out the price of a small house deposit.
Because a week at Rooney’s luxurious Royal Westmoreland pad costs more than £25,000.
Staying at the villa can set guests back a whopping £10,164 a week during low season.
And around Christmas time, when temperatures rise to 30C in January, the rates soar to £25,410 a week.
Rooney’s mansion boasts five bedrooms, an infinity pool, outside dining space and media room and is based at the exclusive Jasmine Ridge estate.
The estate boasts celebrity homeowners such as boxer Joe Calzaghe, Ant and Dec, Carl Fogarty and Rio Ferdinand.
Flanked by a world-class golf course, the main thoroughfare leads towards the Rooney’s – with the showbiz couple’s presence being credited for drawing in other well-heeled Northerners to the island.
It has become so popular with Mancunian celebs that residents have unofficially renamed the estate the ‘Northern Quarter’ – after the trendy area in Manchester.
Wayne and Colleen put their home on the rental market in after buying it in 2010 for £5 million, reports the Manchester Evening News .
The luxury haven has allowed them and their children Kai, Klay and Kit to swap life at their Cheshire mansion in Prestbury for tropical temperatures of up to 35C.
It can host up to 14 guests, and also boasts a separate two-bedroom cottage for an additional cost.
Ocean Drive 7, most recently visited by motorcycle racer Carl Fogarty, also boasts a media room and a huge swimming pool where guests can enjoy beautiful views of the estate.
The luxury property also has a master bedroom with a balcony and sea views.
Just down the road is the Royal Westmoreland Beach Club where residents can sip a rum punch while relaxing on Mullins Beach.
And if bathing in the blistering Caribbean heat isn’t enough, guests also have access to a range of golf, tennis and spa facilities, including lessons from world class athletes.
The England striker is one of many Brits who own a warm weather getaway on the estate, including world champion boxer Joe Calzaghe and former England cricketer Andrew Flintoff.
But these days the Manchester United skipper is instead said to spend his Bajan holidays at the world famous Sandy Lane Hotel.
A more affordable option is to buy a fortnight at a four-bedroom villa from £81,000 or two weeks in a two-bedroom golf villa from £43,000.
Those hoping to buy their own holiday home on the estate will pay £644,000 for a three bedroom penthouse, up to £1,326,000 for a semi-detached villa or up to £3,027,000 for their own plot of land to build a bespoke home.
Royal Westmoreland owner John Morphet is currently developing a new 18-hole golf course as well as a number of exclusive high-end properties on the site.
He said: “We have a very wide range of people here.
“We do have celebrities but once we come in through the gate we are all on the same level. The owners are not starstruck, they leave each other alone. People don’t bother them, they just mix in.”
