Room With Royalty: Rent the Fresh Prince’s Castle

Say what? The Fresh Prince himself teams up with Airbnb to rent out his kingdom?! For just $30 a night?

That’s a fine piece of architecture

I just can’t help myself – I have to start my post with this great theme song:

3 – 2 – 1, let’s do it together!

Now this is the story all about how
My life got flipped, turned upside down
And I’d like to take a minute just sit right there
I’ll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel-air

In west Philadelphia born and raised
On the playground where I spent most of my days
Chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool
And all shooting some b-ball outside of the school
When a couple of guys, they were up to no good
Started making trouble in my neighbourhood
I got in one little fight and my mom got scared
And said “You’re moving with your auntie and uncle in Bel-air”

I whistled for a cab and when it came near the
License plate said “fresh” and had a dice in the mirror
If anything I could say that this cab was rare
But I thought nah, forget it, yo homes to Bel-air!

I pulled up to a house about seven or eight
And I yelled to the cabby “Yo, homes smell you later!”
Looked at my kingdom I was finally there
To sit on my throne as the prince of Bel-air

Los Angeles, get ready to live like the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air! It’s been 30 years since our TV screens were first graced by the Fresh Prince, and there is no better way to celebrate this than by spending a night in the exact same mansion that the Banks family occupied in this classic show. But don’t get TOO EXCITED yet! Sadly, this offer is only for residents of LA County.

Starting on September 29th at 11:00 AM Pacific, the Banks house will be available to book for only $30/night! You (and one guest) will have the opportunity to book one of five stays starting on October 2nd, 5th, 8th, 11th and 15th.

What will you be getting with this rental?

This decked-out mansion will have you living just like the Fresh Prince himself for a night! You will have access to Will’s bedroom and bathroom, a pool area and a classy dining room. It’s all yours for the night so don’t be shy and act like you own the place.

What’s included:

Lace up those fresh Air Jordan kicks before shooting some hoops in the bedroom ❤
Spin old school classics all night long on turntables just like DJ Jazzy Jeff!
Will’s dope closet
Soak up in the sun by the pool on some luxurious chairs
A virtual welcoming to the the mansion
You will not have access to a kitchen but your meals will be delivered to you on a silver platter
1 bedroom/1 king bed
Free parking
Air conditioning
Wifi
TV
Essentials
Lock on bedroom door

You will have access to the entire wing all to yourself! Let’s have a look…

Omg can you imagine standing on that mat having to make a choice like this

That’s not all! Airbnb will be making a one time donation to the Boys & Girls clubs of Philly. A charity that helps youth in need by offering skill-building programs and development skills.

So, if you rent out this balling palace through Airbnb, I know you will be dancing around and singing this theme song. I know I would be, that’s for sure. This is such a dope idea! I thought renting out a Blockbuster was pretty cool, but this definitely takes the cake.

Can you imagine renting this place out? I can’t even. How could you control yourself once you’re in the cab rolling on up to the home for the first time just like Will? Phew. This is way too much! Airbnb sure is giving us the opportunity to enjoy these dope nostalgia feels.

It’s all yours for the night! How will you fancy your stay? Don’t forget to tell your cabbie, “Yo homes, to Bel-Air!”

Oh, and don’t let ANYONE ruin your fun while on vacation in the freshest mansion around. There will be no time in that house for party poopers! So if you’re going to act up, stay home or be reasonable! This opportunity only comes once in a lifetime so behave!

I can’t close this post without saying RIP James Avery. You certainly were a great actor, Uncle Phil!

“Yo homes, smell ya later!”
