After weeks of anticipation and thousands of entries, the winner of TripAdvisor Rental’s ‘Eye Spy a Home in the Sky’ contest was announced today – Beatriz P. of Zaragoza, Spain!
Beatriz won a once-in-a-lifetime experience, being the first person to ever stay aboard the famed Coca-Cola London Eye overnight. After nearly two decades—and over 60 million visitors—Beatriz will be the first to wake up above London as the sun rises over the Thames. She could not be more thrilled at the opportunity. “I’ll be turning 41 in two days and this is the best birthday present ever!” said, Beatriz.
The Coca-Cola London Eye capsule will be furnished by Wayfair, one of the largest online destinations for the home. Inspired by a five-star rain forest getaway, this enchanting glasshouse combines natural elements with urban style. Lush green foliage, trailing fairy lights, and tropical touches abound, while a posh bed, luxury linens, and boutique chic décor bring a whole new meaning to sleeping under the stars. It’s like a secret rooftop garden—only this one has views of one of the world’s iconic cities from every angle.
The overnight stay will take place on May 17. Beatriz is bringing her teenage son along as her guest. She says, “He is the love of my life and the best company that I can have there. Also, he will really enjoy the trip.”
Surrounded by a panorama of the city’s most famous landmarks, this sky-high sleepover promises a night like no other.
Afterwards, Beatriz and her son will spend three additional nights at a London rental. She has not been to London before and is looking forward to visiting the whole city, the British Museum and Madame Tussauds. In Zaragoza, Beatriz works as a stylist and is looking forward to going on this adventure with her son.
Stay tuned to our blog as we’ll have a full recap of her stay aboard the Coca-Cola London Eye next month – and follow along on social media using the hashtag #SkyHighStay!
