Now, this is a story all about how the world of Airbnb got turned upside down.

Airbnb just got a major dose of freshness thanks to a new listing: the mansion featured in the TV classic “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.”

You don’t have to be from Philadelphia or have a rich uncle in California for a chance to stay in this fine estate. Airbnb shared the news on Twitter.

“Will Smith is opening the doors to the iconic fresh prince mansion for a limited time,” Airbnb wrote:

And get this — Smith himself is listed as the Airbnb host.

“YOOOO!! Y’all think we should rent out the @freshprince house?? We’re making it happen with the squad at @airbnb #FreshPrince30th,” Smith posted on Instagram.

The listing celebrates the 30th anniversary of the show, which debuted on NBC in 1990 and is now getting a less lighthearted reboot treatment as a drama series.

Can you imagine strolling up to this home as part of your next California vacation? Just try not doing the Carlton dance.


Guests of this Airbnb rental will feel like royalty as they enjoy some incredible amenities.

You can soak up some sun while chillin’ on some plush lounge chairs by the luxurious pool.


After the sunbathing is done, perhaps you’d like to head inside. How about a fun game of foosball in the game room, supervised by a portrait of Will himself?


Guests will get an entire wing of the mansion to enjoy, including an outdoor lounge, kitchen, dining room and Will’s bedroom from the show, which has a basketball hoop, king-size bed and turntables to spin some records just like DJ Jazzy Jeff.


Breakfast is even provided for rental guests. We don’t think Geoffrey, the butler, will be preparing it for you, though.

Getting a coveted stay here though might be harder than making it big in Hollywood. Only five one-night stays are available, in early October, and they’re only open to Los Angeles County residents. Booking times open at 11 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time on Sept. 29 on the Airbnb website.

The cost to stay in the house that Smith made famous? The one-night stay is only $30! Maybe Uncle Phil is covering the rest of the expenses for the lucky guest who reserves one of the limited spots.
