Now this is a story all about how, a mini Fresh Prince reunion went down. And I’d like to take a minute, just sit right there. I’ll tell you how you could spend a night in a town called Bel-Air.
Earlier this month, it was revealed that the iconic mansion from the hit TV show The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air was available as an AirBnB rental. Very savvy marketing.
It has been 30 years since The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air debuted, and starting on September 29, you could make an AirBnB booking and be chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool in the magnificent abode from the TV show. To give the newly jazzed up mansion the proper sendoff to be rented out to Fresh Prince superfans, there was a reunion.
Will Smith welcomed fellow TFPOBA stars to the mansion, including DJ Jazzy Jeff, Karyn Parsons (Hilary Banks), Tatyana Ali (Ashley Banks), Daphne Maxwell Reid (Vivian Banks), and Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey the Butler). Sadly missing is actor James Avery, who played Philip Banks, who died in 2013. But there was a framed photo of Uncle Phil inside the home.
Be prepared to sit on your throne as the Prince of Bel-Air. The mansion has been renovated into a shrine to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, full of memorabilia. There is limited edition Air Jordan sneakers and a 30-piece clothing line dedicated to the 30th anniversary.
“It’s your crib for the night, so feel free to act like you own the place,” the AirBnB listing reads. “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!”
“While you will not have access to a kitchen; all meals will be provided and served on silver platters, of course,” the listing states. There is a pool area where you can drink orange juice out of a champagne glass.
If you were planning on renting the Fresh Prince AirBnB, you’re going to have to wait…a few years. The Fresh Prince mansion is booked solid through September 2023, according to E! Online.
To celebrate the Fresh Prince house, Airbnb will make a one-time donation to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Philadelphia, a program that supports youth.
