For anyone whose after-school activity highlight was a TV dinner, watching The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, we have some exciting news for you. Airbnb have just announced that the famous mansion in the 90s sitcom, is now available to rent on the platform. Yep, for real. You can check out the full listing here:
The house has been listed by Will Smith, where he describes in every detail the offer (where guests can stay in his character's wing of the Mansion.) You can try to shoot some hoops in his notorious basketball bedroom, take a nap in his “KING-size bed" sunbathe by the pool, while DJ Jazzy himself will be playing live - as Will Smith writes, “while I won’t be there during your stay, you’ll be welcomed (virtually) to the mansion by DJ Jazzy Jeff” - and punctuate your day with dinner in the plush dining room (“all meals will be provided and served on the silver platters, of course”).
Anything else? The lucky visitors will also have access to Smith’s closet and can try on his favourite looks, surrounded by a collection of graffiti art and luxe furnishing.
"Ready for the freshest staycation ever? If this place looks familiar that's because it's just as fly as it was when I first rolled up the driveway," Smith wrote in the Airbnb description. "I'm back. And this time, I'm handing you the keys so you'll have my wing of the mansion all to yourself -- but my sneaker collection is off limits, aight?"
OK, so now for the small print. Firstly, set a reminder on September 29th, at 11 am PDT, when the bookings will be opened for five overnight stays in October. This exclusive limited-time offer is part of the 30th Anniversary celebrations of the show. And, unfortunately, is only available for Los Angeles residents. One night will cost $30 (!)- one dollar for each year since Will first became “The King of Bel-Air", when the show’s first episode aired in 1990.
All proceedings will go to a charity organisation from Smith’s hometown, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Philadelphia, empowering the young in need. If you miss this chance to stay at the Bel-Air house, there is another surprise waiting for you: the show’s cast members will return on-screen for a one-off reunion special (to be aired on HBO Max around Thanksgiving, in November.)
