TV too small? No problem. Just rent a rich person’s home theater if you want the ultimate viewing experience.
There are some amazing home theaters out there, many with amenities that stretch far beyond just a top-of-the-line screen and some comfy chairs. These days, those seeking in-home viewing accommodations that rival the big screens are building personal theaters with poolside seating and fully-stocked bars. And while some are bringing their theaters outside, others are simply using sophisticated lighting technology to make their indoor TV rooms appear to be under the stars.
Some of these home theaters can be found on HomeAway, the vacation rental site with more than one million listings worldwide. If you’re looking for a vacation, you may want to rent for a week, but HomeAway also offers rentals by the night. With this option, it’s possible to book for an evening to host a viewing party for a big game or other TV event like the Emmys.
Here are some home theaters that are definitely worth a one-night rental:
