Who didn’t love The Fresh Prince of Bel-air? Back in the 90’s the comedy sitcom starring Will Smith was one of the most popular TV shows in the world – and who can forget that iconic mansion?
With that in mind, we’ve got some exciting news, as that exact mansion from the show is being added to Airbnb’s listings 30 years after Will Smith rolled up the driveway and knocked on the door.
The grand pillared home has had a bit of a revamp since it featured on the show – and it looks incredible. The crib has been decked out with ‘bold graffiti art and timeless family portraits’ – and get this – Philly cheesesteaks will be served on silver platters to all guests who stay.
So where is the mansion actually located? Whilst filming of interior scenes for the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air mainly took place on a Los Angeles film set– but the home used for the Airbnb stay, which is located in the swanky neighborhood of Brentwood, near Bel-Air, was seen not only in the opening credits, but every time Will’s best friend, Jazz (played by DJ Jazzy Jeff), was thrown out.His expulsion from the property was a running joke in the show.
The stays will take place in a wing of the mansion, with access to a stunning bedroom and bathroom, an amazing outdoor pool, a poolside lounge area and an elegant dining room.
Airbnb says that guests will get to ‘lace up a fresh pair of Air Jordans before shooting some b-ball in the bedroom, spin throwback classics all night on turntables and don a fly look from Will’s closet, from argyle prepster to all-star Bel-Air athlete’
Not to mention that during this ‘royal overnight’ guests will be virtually welcomed to the mansion by none other than DJ Jazzy Jeff himself.
According to the Airbnb site, guests will get to ‘lace up a fresh pair of Air Jordans before shooting some b-ball in the bedroom, spin throwback classics all night on turntables and don a fly look from Will’s closet, from argyle prepster to all-star Bel-Air athlete’.
The offer is pretty exclusive so fans better act fast if they fancy staying here. Just five Airbnb stays in the ‘Bel-Air’ mansion are up for grabs on October 2, October 5, October 8, October 11 and October 14 for only $30 a night. They will be available for groups of up to two Los Angeles County residents, who can request to book beginning on September 29 at 11am PDT on airbnb.com/fresh. So whilst Brits can’t officially book in, if you’ve got a mate from LA you better hit them up!
Airbnb added: ‘Interested guests should note that house rules are in strict adherence with local Covid-19 guidelines, and those who request to book must prove Los Angeles County residency and currently live in the same household to minimize risk. Guests can rest easy in the king-size bed knowing that the home will be cleaned in accordance with CDC rules and consistent with the Airbnb enhanced cleaning protocol.
‘To celebrate the feeling of family and community Will Smith and friends brought to all of us, Airbnb will make a donation to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Philadelphia, a charity that supports youth, including those in greatest need, by offering development and skill-building programs, recreational activities and empowerment tools.’
