This is a story all about how you can stay in one of the most famous TV houses thanks to Airbnb. Well, sort of.
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the seminal Will Smith-starring sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Airbnb is letting people spend the night in the iconic mansion seen in the opening credits. The only stipulation? You need to be a resident of Los Angeles County.
For only $30/night you can sleep in the mansion that welcomed Will into its doors those many years ago. (Which is not actually in Bel-Air, but in Brentwood.) The listing is even written as if Will himself is the host! Here’s more about the Fresh Prince house stay straight from the Airbnb page:
It’s your crib for the night, so feel free to act like you own the place. My wing of the mansion includes my bedroom (great for naps), a full bathroom (great for spitting bars in the shower), pool area (great for dips), an outdoor lounge, and the dining room (great for eating obviously). And you gotta do it like my guy DJ Jazzy Jeff so don’t forget your sunglasses!
During your stay, you’ll get to indulge in a few royal perks, including:
– Lacing up a fresh pair of Jordans before shooting some b-ball in the bedroom (you read that right—IN the bedroom).
– Spinning throwback classics all night on turntables just like DJ Jazzy Jeff’s.
– Donning a fly look from my closet, from argyle prepster to all-star athlete —from experience: both at the same time turns heads!
– Soaking up the sun poolside on luxe lounge chairs.
Note: while you will not have access to a kitchen; all meals will be provided and served on silver platters, of course.
So yes, while you’ll only have access to part of the house, there’s plenty to do to make the most out of your stay. The listing makes sure to mention that this is a socially distanced staycation and that there will be no other guests in the house at the time. The home will also be cleaned in accordance with CDC guidelines to prevent any COVID-19 spreading.
You can book your stay in the Fresh Prince mansion on Airbnb on one of these five available dates: October 2, October 5, October 8, October 11, and October 14. Booking opens on September 29, so act fast if you’re an interested L.A. resident, because these will go fast!
If you’re not a Los Angeles resident but still want to celebrate The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air‘s 30th anniversary, don’t forget to tune into HBO Max this Thanksgiving season for a reunion special with the original cast.
