Indulging in a free luxury vacation would be a dream come true for most travelers, but adding a five-figure paycheck makes the deal even sweeter. And that's exactly what AvantStay, a luxury vacation home rental company, is offering to one lucky pair of travelers.

But this dream job isn't for everybody. AvantStay is looking for savvy social media users with a knack for producing the kind of creative content that goes viral and gets people to hit the like button. This "digital duo" will be tasked with spending 10 days visiting three luxury multimillion-dollar homes while capturing footage for AvantStay's TikTok, Instagram, and other social media platforms.

Applicants to the AvantStay Digital Duo Dream Job can grab a friend, significant other, sibling, or any other partner in crime to join them for the experience, with each person receiving a $5,000 paycheck for their time.

The properties the pair will experience are The Moonshine in Coachella Valley, California; The Primrose in Scottsdale, Arizona; and Black Rock in Paradise Valley, Arizona. In California, they'll find a five-bedroom home that sleeps up to 12 guests and comes complete with a pool, fire pit, wet bar, and a full outdoor kitchen. In Scottsdale, the home nearly doubles in size with accommodations for up to 23 guests, along with plenty of activities to keep people entertained like a private screening room, pool, spa, basketball court, table tennis, and even a putting green. At Black Rock, the final home for this 10-day getaway, the digital duo will find a pool, fire pit, in-home bar, and theater, plus accommodations for 18 people.

AvantStay will provide the winning pair with transportation to and from these luxury homes, as well as plenty of other activities to enjoy along the way. They'll go on a hot air balloon ride, be pampered with a poolside massage, treat their taste buds to private chef dinners, and much more.
