It's pretty far from West Philadelphia, where he was born and raised, but now, thirty years after Will Smith looked at his kingdom and sat on his throne as the "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air", the Philly native and Airbnb are giving fans the chance to book the famous mansion.
With a reunion of the cast of the popular show on HBO Max coming up near Thanksgiving, Smith and Airbnb are teaming up to rent out a portion of the famous Brentwood mansion that was used as the exterior for the hit NBC sitcom during those six incredibly successful seasons in the '90s.
Fans will have the chance to shoot baskets in the bedroom. There are also turntables if you wanna spin records like DJ Jazzy Jeff, who will virtually welcome renters poolside if you want to catch some rays.
In this time of pandemic here are all kinds of covid safety rules, as the place is cleaned according to CDC rules, and all residents must come from the same home to minimize corona virus risk. These bookings are overnight stays and only 5 dates are available, and only to LA area residents!!! There is a connection to Philly though, as Airbnb will make a donation to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Philadelphia to celebrate the royal event.
It's only $30 for the night to commemorate the 30-year anniversary, and bookings are September 29th through October.
Around here, though we'll have to settle for reruns....
