In his one of his celebratory moves, he announced that fans of the show will have an opportunity to rent out the mansion seen amid the theme song for an affordable price of $30 a night.
On Instagram, he revealed the partnership with Airbnb, and he elaborated on the details of the opportunity under the listing. “It’s just as fly as it was when I first rolled up the driveway,” Smith wrote. “And this time, I’m handing you the keys so you’ll have my wing of the mansion all to yourself – but my sneaker collection is off limits, aight?”
“Some may say I’ve done it all, but I’ve never opened the doors to a wing of the iconic mansion that helped launch my career,” Smith continued. “It holds a lot of special memories for me and my friends, and I hope you’ll leave with memories (and a dope handshake) to last you well beyond your stay.”
DJ Jazzy Jeff will virtually greet those staying at the mansion which is not to be confused with the home where Smith and his fellow cast members actually filmed most of their scenes. Renters will, however, have access to Smith’s bedroom and bathroom from the show as well as a pool area, outside lounge and a large dining room where they will be served meals “on silver platters” much like Geoffrey cared for the Banks family.
Starting Sept. 29, the Airbnb will only be available to those living in the L.A. County-area as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic. Those interested in renting the mansion must also prove they‘re currently residents of the same househould to minimize the risk and spread of the virus. Bookings will only be available for Oct. 2, 5, 8, 11 and 14.
Aside from the unique opportunity, Smith also teased “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” fans with photos from his reunion with all living cast members, and yes, that even includes the original Aunt Viv, Janet Hubert.
