    We Got To Live In A Mansion And Realized You Really Don't Need All That Room

    Must be nice.

    This is Niki and Garrett, and they love to experience different living situations and document it all in their series called "Homebuddies."


    In this latest episode, they got to live in the lap of luxury in a ridiculously decked-out mansion in Queen Creek, Arizona for an entire weekend.

    First, Niki and Garrett got a tour from John, the owner, who explained the 8,400-square-foot home was built in 2006, and has 24-foot ceilings.


    It has six bedrooms, six bathrooms and is worth about $4 million.

    The master bedroom had both a fireplace and a TV. Yep, it was pretty badass.


    It also had a tub and one of those really cool rain showers.

    The kitchen had three dishwashers, two ovens, and a warming drawer.


    Niki said, "You could be cooking three turkeys at one time!"

    Oh, and did we mention there was a super cool movie theater room where you could watch up to three screens at the same time?


    They also had the option to just drop a big projector screen. Nice!

    The outdoor area of the mansion was also insane.


    It had a sport court, trampoline, a playground area, and mini golf course.

    On the first day, they sort of got the hang of how to operate the house and kind of did their own thing.


    Niki said, "The house is so big...the only thing is that it's a little spooky."

    On the next day, they made a point to hang out with each other more.


    After making breakfast, they made a very serious bet to see who would win playing some of the activities the mansion had to offer. A whopping $150 was on the line.

    Then Garrett did something incredibly sweet and thoughtful. He surprised Niki with a massage.


    She said, "This is the nicest roommate thing he's ever done."

    Then it was pool time. Could it get any better?


    That's where Michael, from Privato Chef Services, started spoiling them with drinks leading up to their private dinner.

    Niki and Garrett got all dressed up. It was like going to a restaurant right in your house.


    As their ritzy weekend was winding down, they realized something really important.


    Niki said, "I think I'm starting to figure out that mansions are great because you can fit more people that you love in them."

    And, before they left, there were still two games left to see who would have to pay up.


    After a game of horseshoe and pickle ball, Garrett came out on top.

    Although they loved the experience of getting to live in a sprawling mansion, they realized that most people don't really need all that space (or stuff) to be happy.
