If you grew up in the ‘90s, you probably watched “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” Even if you weren’t familiar with the sitcom, you may have heard the theme song. It’s one of the catchiest and well-known tunes in the decade and in TV history. Shout “In West Philadelphia born and raised…” and someone will shout back “on the playground is where I spent most of my days.” These lyrics from DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince (Will Smith) are unforgettable, especially for ‘90s kids.
Now, you can live just like the Fresh Prince, at least for a few days. The show’s theme song isn’t the only memorable thing about “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” We all love Will, Jazz, Uncle Phil, Geoffrey and the whole gang, but another key character is the amazing mansion. Believe it or not, a private room in the mansion was listed on Airbnb, listed by none other than Will Smith.
A memorable stay in an iconic TV home
This Los Angeles Airbnb is probably one of the “freshest” staycations ever. Those lucky enough to secure a stay can roll up to the driveway in a cab just like Will. A socially distanced mansion concierge will be there to greet you upon arrival and give you a tour. Guests are also virtually welcomed to the mansion by DJ Jazzy Jeff!
Will’s wing of the mansion includes one bedroom with one king-sized bed and a private full bathroom. There’s also a pool area, outdoor lounge, and dining room. There’s a foosball table, retro photos of Will and DJ Jazzy Jeff, bright and colorful artwork, basketball, and more in the wing. Classic Will looks from argyle prepster to all-star athlete are available right in the closet. While there’s no kitchen access, guests will have meals provided and served on silver platters. Dining can be enjoyed in the very classy dining room fit for a prince or princess, complete with a throne.
Booking opened on September 29 for groups of up to two LA County residents for various dates in October. All dates have been filled since then. The listing is up to standards with CDC guidelines. The wing of the manor is completely private from check-in to check-out. No other guests will be in the house during your stay. In partnership, Airbnb is making a one-time donation to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Philadelphia, a local organization in Will’s hometown. The organization supports youth and offers development and skill-building programs, recreational activities, and empowerment. Buy Here
