This is the story all about how…you could stay at the Fresh Prince of Bel Air mansion? In this video, find out about this really cool opportunity!
Airbnb has partnered up with Will Smith for a few select people to actually go and stay in the Fresh Prince of Bel Air mansion and live the Fresh Prince lifestyle for a couple of nights. So in this video, we will talk about how you can get one of those spots.
Airbnb has likely done this to shed light on a couple of really cool improvements that they have made to their platform in light of the pandemic, namely their cleaning services. their cleaning process and protocol. You can now get a specific badge on your listing for following thei cleaning processes and protocol.
So what they have done is that they have opened up a couple of nights in early and mid-October for a few people to actually reside in the mansion. It won’t be a lottery – you will actually have to go and book the place. It is limited to residents of LA County and you have to wait until September 29, 2020 to book. It is going to be priced at $30 per night so it is very affordable.
You can see the listing here. I want to mention for Airbnb hosts that this listing was put up by Airbnb and their internal teams. So this is a chance to see how Airbnb would put together a listing. They obviously have a tremendous amount of data about how to get a property booked up, and how to use all of Airbnb features properly. So, I would highly recommend checking out that listing to get some tips that you might be able to glean and apply towards your own listing to improve it further.
It might be interesting to take note of the photos and photo descriptions (i.e. the colors, the lighting, the angles, etc.), as well as how they write their listing headline and their listing description.
There are a few things we can learn from this listing. While you may not have as unique a property, there is some highlight feature or amenity that you can highlight in your headline and listing description. They also have used the entire description availability, used all the different features, and did a good job describing the space and the neighborhood. They added some notes about how the place is cleaned between guests, which is very important during this pandemic. Hopefully that will be able to help you if you’re already hosting.
If one of you actually gets a chance to stay, I would love to hear from you! I would love to hear about it and love to hear about your experience.
What's up guys? My name is James and in today's video we're gonna be talking about something a little different than normal but still in the world of Airbnb. Now have you ever watched the show Fresh Prince of Bel Air with Will Smith back in the day, a lot of us remember that show as being a really iconic and fun show back in the early 2000s. Now one thing that's really cool that Airbnb is doing right now is that there's an opportunity for a few select people to actually go and stay in that Fresh Prince of Bel Air mansion on Airbnb, really, really cool opportunity.
And in today's video, I'm going to talk to you about how you could potentially be one of the lucky few people who's able to live The Fresh Prince lifestyle for a couple of nights and stay in this mansion for just $30 a night fully catered fully taken care of with access to things like the private pool access to Will Smith's whole wing of the house and more. It's a really, really cool experience. Airbnb has teamed up with Will Smith and the owner of this mansion to offer it up for a few nights in October on Airbnb. So in this video, we're going to talk about how you can get one of those few spots.

If you're familiar with the channel, you might notice I've got a new little gift here courtesy of my lovely girlfriend. And it's a mug that says asked me about my book.

So if you haven't already gotten your copy, I'm going to be leaving a link in the description down below to the Amazon order page where you can pick up your copy of Airbnb for Dummies. It's a project that took us over a year to research and put all together it's a very comprehensive book, the most comprehensive tests I've ever put together in my entire life, specifically all around how to host properties on Airbnb, do it exceptionally effectively, and do it without a whole bunch of headaches.

And like I mentioned earlier how to become a top performing host managing other people's properties and earn a full time income managing other people's properties on Airbnb.
Now with that aside, let's talk about how you can get yourself a spot in Will Smith, Fresh Prince of Bel Air mansion. Now this is a really cool partnership that Airbnb has done along with Will Smith. And my thought is that they're likely doing this to bring light to a couple of really cool improvements that they've made on the platform in light of everything going on, namely their cleaning service, their cleaning process, their clean protocol that you can get a specific badge on your listing for following. Now, what they've done here is they've opened up a couple of nights in early and middle of October of 2020 here for a few people who actually reside in the Los Angeles County to actually go and stay there.
And so this isn't going to be a lottery, it's not going to be some kind of giveaway where you have a one in a million odds of getting in there, you're actually going to be able to go and book the place as long as you live in LA County. Unfortunately, if you don't live in LA County, you're not going to be able to book so that's step number one. Now I'm gonna leave a link in the description below where you can check out the listing for yourself and see the whole place and see the availabilities. Therefore, now, if you live in LA County, that's step one.
Step two is to wait until September 29 on September 29, if I'm not mistaken, it's at 11am pacific time, they're going to be opening up a few availabilities in their calendar. Now it's going to be first come first serve. And from what I've seen, it looks like it's going to be priced at $30 a night so very affordable. This isn't really something that Airbnb is doing to make money. It's something that they're doing as a big publicity stunt. Now, this is really cool for you. If you live in LA County, if you get onto Airbnb and you Wait right there, I'm sure there's going to be a very, very large amount of demand and there's only going to be a few availabilities opening up. So if you're quick with your fingers, you get on there in there quickly and book up those days, then you can get a really, really cool experience for a very, very affordable price.
So that's really all there is to it. Just wait until September 29. As long as you live in LA County, you can go on there and book yourself a place to stay. Now there's also a really big opportunity that I want to mention for Airbnb hosts while this listing is up. Now this is a listing that we have to imagine was carefully put together not by Will Smith, but rather by Airbnb and their actual internal teams. It's not often that you get the chance to actually see how Arabic And B would put together a listing themselves. They obviously have a tremendous amount of data about how to get a property booked up, and how to use all of Airbnb features properly. So I would highly recommend checking out that listing to get some tips that you might be able to glean and apply towards your own listing.
To improve it further, you'll notice that all the photos are taken in a particular manner might be interesting to take note of the photos, the colors, the lighting, the angles that they use in those photos, as well as the description they give to each photo, how they write their listing headline and their listing description. Now you might not have as unique of a value proposition as being the mansion that all of Will Smith's Fresh Prince of Bel Air so yours was shot in. But there is some highlight feature or amenity in your property that you can easily highlight and bring to light the same way that they do in their headline and their listing description.
They also have used the entire description availability, all the different features, as far as you know, showing people what they can do nearby telling people about the space about the neighborhood, adding in some bonuses and adding in notes about how the place is cleaned between guests, which is super important now in this new world of everything going on right now. So hopefully that will be able to help you if you're already hosting And if you want even more help to improve your hosting again, links in the description below to all the free training as well as to purchase our new book Airbnb for dummies on Amazon.
