Airbnb listed a life-size Malibu Barbie Dreamhouse for rent, for a one-time, two-night stay, in honor of Barbie’s 60th anniversary. The ocean-front dream house is available for booking for guests beginning on October 23 for $60 per night.
A stay at the Barbie Dreamhouse includes various activations for guests that showcase Barbie’s entrepreneurial spirit and appreciation for underrepresented career paths. The Airbnb experience will include a one-on-one fencing session with fencing medalist Ibtihaj Muhammad and a meet-and-greet with celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin as well as hair makeovers courtesy of Atkin’s Mane Addicts Creator Collective. Guests will also be treated to an interactive cooking lesson with Malibu Seaside Chef’s owner and a behind-the-scenes tour of Columbia Memorial Space Center with aerospace engineer and pilot Jill Meyers.
The two bed-two bath mansion is decorated in signature Barbie style with pops of Barbie-pink finishes across the infinity pool, waterslide, personal cinema, sport court, walk-in closet, hobby studio and fully stocked kitchen. A stay is guaranteed to the first fan who reserves when booking opens at 11 a.m. PDT on October 23. The one-time stay will take place from October 27-29.
As part of the activation, Airbnb is donating to the Barbie Dream Gap Project GoFundMe initiative, an ongoing global effort to give girls the resources and support they need to pursue their passions in life. The Dream Gap Project Fund is based in research that starting at age five, many girls begin to develop limiting self-beliefs. The company established the initiative earlier this year with $250,000. Around the same time, Mattel kicked off a global campaign to commemorate Barbie’s 60th anniversary, enlisting 20 influential women and partnering with organizations that inspire young girls to follow their dreams.
