Thirty years ago, Will Smith famously pulled up to the house about 7 or 8 and yelled to the cabbie “yo homes, smell you later,” and now the actor is giving you an opportunity to sit on your throne as the prince of Bel-Air by spending a night in the mansion made famous by the ’90s sitcom.

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Smith will convert the Bel-Air mansion into an Airbnb next month for five nights only.

“The ‘Fresh Prince’ will turn things upside down — once again — for the town where his reign began,” Airbnb said in a statement. “The actor and entrepreneur is adding Airbnb host to his long resume and opening the doors to his former ‘kingdom,’ so fans can create some memories of their own.”

Guests will be limited to a one-night stay for just $30 on either Oct. 2, 5, 8, 11 and 14, and the bookings are limited to groups of up to two Los Angeles County residents who currently live in the same house. The house will be in compliance with all CDC rules, local COVID-19 guidelines and Airbnb’s enhanced cleaning protocols for the pandemic.

If you meet all the requirements and manage to book a stay at the mansion, you’ll be met with a Fresh Prince experience that includes “bold graffiti art, posh interiors, timeless family portraits, and Philly cheesesteaks served on silver platters.” And as Travel + Leisure reports, “Guests will stay in Will’s wing of the mansion with access to his luxurious bedroom and bathroom, the dining room, and a poolside lounge for soaking up some sun. The lucky guests will also get to raid Smith’s closet for some iconic clothes, ranging in styles from typical Bel-Air prep to his fly street style, including a fresh pair of Air Jordans.”

You can request to book the Bel-Air mansion on Airbnb beginning at 11 a.m. PST on Sept. 29.
