Fans of the beloved ’90s classic The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live out their sitcom fantasies this fall. Will Smith has teamed up with Airbnb to offer five one-night stays at the Brentwood, California, mansion that served as the iconic exterior of Uncle Phil and Aunt Vivian’s home for all six seasons of the show.
And as an added bonus, stays will be just $30 a night, in honor of the series celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. “Ready for the freshest staycation ever?” the listing reads. “If this place looks familiar that’s because it’s just as fly as it was when I first rolled up the driveway. 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, a’ight?” Guests will have access to what would have been Will’s bedroom (all decked out in ’90s paraphernalia and even a basketball hoop), a full bathroom, the pool area, an outdoor lounge, and the dining room. In keeping with the royalty theme of the stay—and COVID safety guidelines—all meals will be served on silver platters, as guests won’t have access to the kitchen.
Extra perks include a pair of Air Jordan sneakers for each guest, a chance to rummage through a closet filled with stylish outfits, and turntables to channel your inner DJ Jazzy Jeff. (Will’s BFF will also welcome fans virtually to the poolside area.) Smith posted about the opportunity to his Instagram Sunday alongside a selfie of him and Jazzy Jeff, keys in hand. Earlier this month, the actor also shared the exciting news that he and the original cast have officially signed on for an unprecedented two-season reboot of the series, called Bel-Air.
Bookings start September 29 and will be for the dates of October 2, 5, 8, 11, and 14; an important caveat is that in keeping with safety regulations, only L.A. County residents are allowed to book stays at the mansion, and multiple guests will have to prove that they currently live in the same household. Additionally, Airbnb will be making a donation to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Philadelphia to help celebrate the show’s momentous anniversary.
