Staring famous actor and singer Will Smith, the show aired for 6 seasons and was very popular among a variety of audiences. The 30th anniversary of the show is quickly arriving and to celebrate, Smith has opened the famed mansion to fans in the form of an Airbnb.

​ The mansion resides in Brentwood California, a short drive away from Bel-Air. The mansion has been opened for five nights only and each night will cost $30 (this is to honor the 30th anniversary of the show). This is a very cheap expense to stay a night at one of the most famous mansions known on TV.

​But booking a night will not be that easy. Millions of people will want to get their hands on a night at the mansion and for only $30 a night, money will not be a problem. For many, this is a dream come true. To live on the set of your favorite show is very appealing to the masses.
