Barbie’s Malibu Dreamhouse Is on Airbnb

You can spend a night in Barbie’s Malibu villa complete with an infinity pool and walk-in dress up closet — but not for long.

Nostalgic fans can now spend a weekend in Malibu at Barbie’s iconic Dreamhouse. In honor of the brand’s 60th anniversary, Airbnb listed the life-size version to be rented for a one time, two-night stay from October 27-29.

The three-story villa resembles Mattel’s original Barbie Malibu Dreamhouse, complete with an infinity pool and waterslide, a walk-in dress-up closet, a DJ booth, a meditation terrace, outdoor dining patio, and more. 

The oceanfront property is listed at $60 a night with two bedrooms for up to four guests. The dress-up closet will have clothes, shoes, and accessories from Barbie’s wardrobe (hopefully human-size). 

In honor of the doll's anniversary, Airbnb will make a donation to Barbie’s Dream Gap Project, a global initiative launched in 2018 to help empower girls with resources and support provided by the foundation. 

The guests who book the listing will also get hair makeovers by a celebrity hairstylist, the chance to lern how to fence from Olympic champion Ibtihaj Muhammad, a private tour of the Columbia Memorial Space Center with aerospace engineer Jill Meyers, and a cooking session with Gina Clarke-Helm in the fully-stocked kitchen. 

The listing says they hope the visit will be“a reminder that you can be anything!”

The Dreamhouse listing opens for booking on October 23 at 11 a.m. PT.
