You can now stay in the Fresh Prince of Bel Air mansion
Will Smith has joined forces with DJ Jazzy Jeff to launch the mansion from Fresh Prince of Bel Air on Airbnb.
The 90s sitcom, about a teenager from a rough neighbourhood who is sent to live with his rich relatives, is getting a a one-off HBO Max special to mark its 30th anniversary.
Now the owners of the iconic TV house have listed it on Airbnb, making one wing of the mansion available to stay in for five nights at $30 (£23) a night in October to celebrate the milestone.
The actor and his former co-star got together at Uncle Phil and Aunt Vivian’s palatial home to put the word out to fans.
Posting a selfie of them outside the mansion on Instagram, Will said: ‘YOOOO!! Y’all think we should rent out the @freshprince house?? We’re making it happen with the squad at @airbnb!! #FreshPrince30th.’
The official Fresh Prince account replied: ‘Home sweet home!’.
On the show the house was meant to be in Bel Air, however the real thing is actually in Brentwood, Los Angeles with scenes inside shot on a sound stage.
The Airbnb website describes it as ‘The Freshest Los Angeles Mansion Around’ and is ‘hosted by Will’.
‘Will’ says in the home description: ‘It’s your crib for the night, so feel free to act like you own the place.
‘My wing of the mansion includes my bedroom (great for naps), a full bathroom (great for spitting bars in the shower), pool area (great for dips), an outdoor lounge, and the dining room (great for eating obviously). And you gotta do it like my guy DJ Jazzy Jeff so don’t forget your sunglasses!’
Guests will be virtually welcomed by Jazzy Jeff when they arrive and will have a ‘socially distanced concierge’ at their disposal.
It comes as the I Am Legend star met with former Aunt Viv actress Janet Hubert, who he publicly fell out with, for the HBO Max special.
