'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' mansion to be turned into Airbnb for five nights only

The limited-time stays at the famous TV home cost just Dh110 per night

It's been 30 years since Will Smith's Fresh Prince first pulled up to the house, around seven or eight, and sat on his throne as the Prince of Bel-Air. And now, residents of Los Angeles can check into the mansion themselves, care of Airbnb.

The Los Angeles property is still every bit as fresh as it was when the Banks family lived there with their nephew on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

Airbnb describes it as having "bold graffiti art, posh interiors, and timeless family portraits". It adds that Philly cheesesteaks will be served on silver platters to "transport guests to the lap of luxury", however, "auntie and uncle are not included".

From Tuesday, September 29, groups of up to two Los Angeles County residents will have the chance to book one of five nostalgic stays. They will be able to check into Will's wing of the home on October 2, 5, 8, 11 and 14. The stays cost just $30 (Dh110) a night.

Airbnb said: "The stays will take place for one night each in Will’s wing of the decked-out mansion with access to Will’s posh bedroom and bathroom, a poolside lounge area and an elegant dining room. During this royal overnight, guests will be treated to some old school fun, Big Willie Style."

It also listed out the perks of the stay to include being (virtually) welcomed to the mansion by DJ Jazzy Jeff, Smith's best friend both on and off the show.

In line with Covid-19 guidelines, anyone who books to stay at the property must prove that they live in Los Angeles County and currently live in the same household to minimise risk.

However, the opportunity to celebrate The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air doesn't just need to be for residents of Los Angeles.

DJ Jazzy Jeff will also be hosting an Airbnb Online Experience, where they can virtually learn how to DJ like him from his home studio.

The virtual experience with DJ Jazzy Jeff is available on Thursday, October 1. More information is available here, abnb.co/djjazzyjeff. Los Angeles residents can request to book the property here, airbnb.com/fresh
