You Can Now Rent Barbie’s Malibu Dreamhouse On Airbnb And It’s Surprisingly Affordable
Pretend you're Barbie for the weekend!
If you’ve ever wanted to live like Barbie in a life-size Barbie world, Airbnb is now giving you a chance — and for a surprisingly affordable price. Thanks to a partnership with Mattel, Airbnb is giving one lucky person and three of their friends a chance to stay at the real life Barbie Dreamhouse in Malibu, California for just $60 a night.
According to the Airbnb listing, the three-story home features two bedrooms, two baths, open communal loft spaces, a cinema, a hot tub and an infinity pool that overlooks the ocean, much of it decorated in Barbie’s signature color — hot pink. There’s also a walk-in closet that features outfits from Barbie’s various careers as an astronaut, firefighter, fitness instructor and more.
According to the Airbnb listing, which is written by “Barbie” herself, the person who stays at the Dreamhouse will also be treated to some special extras from Barbie’s friends.
“Even though I’ll be out of town, some of my friends will swing by to inspire and teach you new things,” the listing reads. “Learn how to fence with Ibtihaj Muhammad, create an exquisite meal in my fully stocked kitchen with chef Gina Clarke-Helm, get a makeover with hairstylists from Mane Addicts Creator Collective while meeting with celebrity hairstylist and girl boss Jen Atkin, and even take a trip to the Columbia Memorial Space Center with pilot and aerospace engineer Jill Meyers. I hope the stay is a reminder that you can be anything!”
Additionally, a car service will pick you up at the airport and a private driver will be available during your stay. And Airbnb will make a donation to The Barbie Dream Gap Project on your behalf.
If this all sounds too good to be true, then you won’t be surprised that there are a few catches. The house is only available for rent from Oct. 27-29, 2019 to celebrate Mattel and Barbie’s 60th anniversary. (That’s next week!)
To book it, you’re going to want to set a reminder for 11 a.m. PDT on Wednesday, October 23 and cross your fingers that you’re the first person to hit the “Reserve” button. As the listing states, staying at Barbie’s Malibu Dreamhouse is a once in a lifetime chance, so only one person will be allowed to book the home on Airbnb.
This isn’t the first time that Airbnb has offered a unique stay for a lucky few. Earlier this year, the company offered a one-of-a-kind opportunity to take a month-long sabbatical to visit Antarctica.
This definitely sounds amazing, especially if you’re a Barbie fan. Will you give it a shot?
