After much anticipation, the grand prize stay for the ‘Eye Spy a Home in the Sky’ contest run by our sister company, TripAdvisor Rentals, is happening today!
Beatriz P. of Zaragoza, Spain 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, in a luxury home created by TripAdvisor Rentals. After her stay on the Coca-Cola London Eye, she will be staying in a luxury rental in London for three additional nights.
Beatriz has chosen her 15-year-old son as her lucky companion on this money-can’t-buy experience. The pair has never traveled to London before, despite it being a long-term dream.
Stay tuned to this blog for exclusive video, images, and commentary from the event provided by the TripAdvisor team on the ground.
Update: 830am EST – The first ever images of the completed home on board this famous London landmark are in. The transformed capsule, designed by Wayfair, is a rainforest-inspired rooftop garden and offers a slice of serene paradise high above the bustling metropolis of London.
See the final, amazing look of the space!
