Vanessa Aguirre and her husband transformed a Scottsdale house into a dream bachelorette spot.
It features custom pink wallpapers, murals, and a luxury pool.
The Airbnb sleeps 12 guests and starts at $716 a night before fees, which is just $59 per guest.
If you've been on a Bachelorette trip in the last few years, you know the place you're staying has a big impact on how the trip goes.
Most groups want to stay somewhere spacious with easy access to activities in whatever destination you've chosen for your trip, and it's definitely a bonus if the home fits the aesthetic of the weekend you're planning so you don't have to spend as much money on decor.
Enter Vanessa Aguirre, a short-term rental homeowner who is based in Chicago, Illinois. Aguirre, 31, and her husband bought their first property in Nashville, and because of the location, Aguirre became inspired to cater the townhome's decor to bachelorette groups.
"I thought rather than try to compete with all the professionally designed Airbnbs that were catering to everyone, I was going to try to be the most exciting, best option for bachelorette groups and just design a super cute and girly space," she told Insider.
The townhome was an immediate success, so in January 2021, Aguirre and her husband expanded their business by purchasing the Femme House in Scottsdale, Arizona, which is also a popular bachelorette destination.
"We opted for buying something that needed a little bit of work," Aguirre told Insider, as they wanted to be able to customize the house as much as possible. Aguirre served as the designer for the project, and she wanted the Scottsdale house to go with the aesthetic of the Nashville townhouse.
They had just over two months to get the house renovated, as they wanted it available for the spring and summer when people are frequently going on bachelorette trips.
Aguirre shared before-and-after photos of the renovation with Insider to show the house's transformation.
Vanessa Aguirre and her husband invested $75,000 into turning a Scottsdale, Arizona, home into the perfect Airbnb for bachelorette parties.
Aguirre wanted to turn the standard home she purchased into a playful space that fit with the branding she created at her Nashville property.
Pink played a big role in the decor throughout the home. She also used floral, pastel wallpaper to add additional pops of color to the dining room.
Because the home would often be used for parties, Aguirre wanted to balance high-end decor with more affordable items that can withstand wear and tear.
For instance, Aguirre told Insider she splurged on a statement pink couch for the living room, and she paired it with pieces purchased from stores like Walmart and Target.
Aguirre continued the pink color scheme in the three bedrooms, which sleep 12. She also painted archways onto the walls in lieu of headboards.
Aguirre paid attention to detail with the renovations, from the paint colors to the color of the shower curtains.
Even the bathrooms in the Femme House are pink, giving the home a cohesive feel.
"I wanted moments in both of the houses that were kind of like the guests complimenting themselves," Aguirre said, so she added a beauty bar in addition to the smaller bathrooms.
The beauty bar was decorated with pink, cactus wallpaper and a neon sign that said "Hotter than the desert," so it was functional and added to the festive feel of the home.
The backyard was a big appeal of the Scottsdale house, and Aguirre invested a lot of their budget into renovating the space.
The pink color scheme continued outside, as the covered patio features a large dining table with pink chairs.
A neon sign that says "You can't sit with us" — an iconic line from the film "Mean Girls" — also sits on the wall near the table, so groups have a fun place to take photos while they dine.
Aguirre told Insider that she and her husband invested $45,000 into the backyard, which was the majority of their total renovation budget.
The backyard sits on a double lot, so Aguirre had ample space to create fun for guests who stay at the Femme House. She continued the pink theme in the space, painting the brick wall surrounding the yard pink.
Aguirre also had two custom murals commissioned from Spindles Design Co. for the backyard so it fit the home's overall aesthetic. The first said "Scottsdale" and featured cacti, and it sat in front of a small putting green.

One side of the yard was originally home to a basketball court, but Aguirre decided to turn it into an additional lounge space for guests.
It now features additional seating and oversized lawn games, like cornhole and connect four.
There's also another mural on that end of the yard. It reads "I do crew," designed to appeal to bachelorette parties.
"Because this is a home that's generally being booked to celebrate a special occasion such as a bachelorette, those extra fun elements make it so when you get into the house it's already kind of a vibe," Aguirre told Insider.
Aguirre also told Insider she loved the renovation process. "My preference would be to only do renovations now because when you have to redo it anyway, you can make those super specific selections," she said.
Aguirre also uses her niche in the bachelorette market to benefit guests. For instance, the Femme House has a space where visitors can leave decor they bring with them for their parties so others can reuse them.
The house sleeps 12, and it starts at $716 a night before fees and taxes, which would be $59 per guest.
