To celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Will Smith has decided to list the show’s mansion on Airbnb for a limited time. Bookings begin on September 29 for stays on the following days, October 2, 5, 8, 11 and 14. Airbnb will make a donation to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Philadelphia to celebrate the event.
In a statement, Airbnb said, “The ‘Fresh Prince’ will turn things upside down – once again – for the town where his reign began. The actor and entrepreneur is adding Airbnb host to his long resume and opening the doors to his former ‘kingdom,’ so fans can create some memories of their own.”

The exterior of the mansion was used on the show, but the interior was a film set. However, the property listed on Airbnb has been decorated with “bold graffiti art, posh interiors, timeless family portraits, and Philly cheesesteaks served on silver platters.” Guests will also have access to Will’s massive bedroom, bathroom, dining room and poolside lounge.

The home also comes with a Fresh Prince-style wardrobe that guests can wear during their stay. The mansion is available to two guests at a time and given coronavirus guidelines, the guests must be Los Angeles residents and live together. Shockingly, the stay will only cost $30, in honor of the show’s anniversary. The series first premiered on September 10, 1990.
Smith has also announced that an HBO unscripted reunion with the cast will be released in the next few weeks. Sadly, Uncle Phil, played by James Avery, died at the age of 68 from complications following open-heart surgery. After his death, Smith stated, “Some of my greatest lessons in acting, living, and being a respectable human being came through James Avery. Every young man needs an Uncle Phil. Rest in peace.”
The reunion will also feature Janet Hubert, who played Smith’s Aunt Viv during the show’s first three seasons before being fired. The two actors had a very public feud for the past three decades, but have recently reconciled.
