MALIBU — Malibu Barbie is looking to rent out her dream house – any takers?
To celebrate Barbie’s 60-year anniversary, Airbnb is offering a stay in a life-sized replica of the doll’s iconic Malibu dream house for just US$60 a night (plus fees and taxes).
The over-the-top mansion, located in Malibu and decked out in head to toe pink, is available for rent from Oct. 27-29. The listing opens on Oct. 23 at 11 a.m. PDT on www.airbnb.com/barbie.
What makes the two-bed/two-bath house Barbie-approved, you ask? Besides the fact that it boasts a movie theatre, meditation area, fully-stocked kitchen, infinity pool and a sports court, it comes complete with a walk-in closet filled to the brim with some of Barbie’s signature outfits over the past 60 years – all sized for adults. Whether you want to dress up as an astronaut or a fitness instructor, Malibu Barbie’s got a look just right for you!
But that’s not all you get with your stay. The lucky renter will also enjoy one-of-a-kind experiences with a handful of highly successful women in their respective fields, including a meet-and-greet with celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin, a fencing lesson with Olympic bronze medalist Ibtihaj Muhammad, a cooking lesson from Malibu Seaside Chef Gina Clarke-Helm, and a tour of Columbia Memorial Space Center with pilot Jill Meyers.
All this just proves that this is Barbie’s world and we’re just living in it.
