You don’t have to be born and raised in West Philadelphia to spend a night in the iconic, Los Angeles mansion from “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air” thanks to a new partnership between Will Smith and Airbnb. This fall, Smith will play Airbnb host in the house that brought Uncle Phil, Aunt Viv, Carlton, Ashley, Hilary and Geoffrey to t.v. sets around the globe in the 1990s.
Starting September 29 at 11:00 a.m. PDT, groups of two will have the chance to book one of five stays in the home, from October 2 to October 14. True to the humble beginnings of The Fresh Prince, each stay will cost a reasonable $30. But while the Bel Air staycation won’t break the bank, you do have to be a Los Angeles County resident to apply.
According to Airbnb, Smith has packed the mansion with a laundry list of entertainment options. Guests can lounge by the luxurious pool, lace up a pair of custom Air Jordans, or take part in a virtual turntable class with the mansion’s most unwelcome guest—DJ Jazzy Jeff.
Airbnb says guests will also enjoy Philly cheesesteaks served on a silver platter, access to Will’s closet, filled with Bel Air Athletics gear and argyle Bel Air Academy-style threads.
Though most of the hit sitcom was filmed on a set, the 6,438-square foot mansion became iconic when it was used for establishing shots in the show’s opening credits. The home is actually located in Brentwood, about five miles from Bel Air. It features five bedrooms and five bathrooms and is estimated to be worth about $6.5 million.
Available dates for this limited time stay are October 2, October 5, October 8, October 11 and October 14. According to Airbnb, the mansion and its house rules strictly adhere to COVID-19 guidelines. Guests that book the mansion are required to currently live in the same household.
In commemoration of the listing, Airbnb is making a donation to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Philadelphia to promote skill-building programs, recreational activities and empowerment tools. The “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” mansion officially lists on September 29. Book it here.
