"Looked at my kingdom, I was finally there!" You too can be saying those words now that the mansion from the hit show The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air will be available to rent on Airbnb.
Fresh Prince star Will Smith announced the exciting news on Instagram. “YOOOO!! Y’all think we should rent out the @freshprince house?? We’re making it happen with the squad at @airbnb!! #FreshPrince30th,” he captioned the photo.
Starting September 29, 2020, Los Angeles County residents will be given the opportunity to book a night at the fabulous home in a group of up to two people. The five available dates are October 2, 5, 8, 11, and 14.
The going rate will only cost you $30 in honor of the show’s 30th anniversary.
To keep up with COVID-19 regulations, those who are selected must prove residency in L.A. County and be from the same household. The rental will follow CDC rules and maintain enhanced cleaning protocols made by Airbnb.
For those who live outside of the Los Angeles area and want to partake in the fun, DJ Jazzy Jeff will also offer an Airbnb Online Experience where he will teach guests some tips and tricks on how to DJ.
As part of the celebrations, Airbnb is also making a one-time donation to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Philadelphia.
The 51-year-old Hollywood legend has been heavily promoting the show’s anniversary. He posted on Instagram a series of photos giving fans a behind-the-scenes look at the highly-anticipated upcoming 30th Anniversary Reunion special. In one pic, Smith posed with Alfonso Ribeiro, Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Joseph Marcell, Daphne Maxwell Reid and DJ Jazzy Jeff on the set. Sadly missing was James Avery. The actor, who portrayed patriarch Philip Banks, died in 2013.
“Today is exactly 30 YEARS since The @FreshPrince of Bel-Air debuted! So we’re doin’ something for y’all… a for real Banks Family Reunion is comin’ soon to @HBOmax! RIP James. #FreshPrince30th,” he captioned the series of snaps.

The address of the Banks’ home is 805 St. Cloud Road in Bel-Air although the actual home is in Brentwood, just outside of its fictional location.
The home was built in 1937 and is described as “L.A. neoclassical with a touch of Colonial and a dash of Greek Revival.”
The bedroom comes with a basketball net, where you can shoot some hoops while you lay in bed.
Amazing perks include access to Smith’s wardrobe and a virtual welcome from longtime friend DJ Jazzy Jeff.
During the one-night stay, fans will have access to the wing of the house where Smith’s character — William Smith — lived.
The house is equipped with classic turntables where you can spin ‘Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It.’
‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ ran for six seasons from 1990-1996.
You will also be able to lounge poolside and have access to the iconic dining room.
