Here’s how you can actually sleep in a real life Barbie dreamhouse
Ready to live your childhood dream in an all-pink paradise? Airbnb has transformed Barbie’s Malibu Dreamhouse into an unforgettable vacation rental, replete with a glitzy outdoor disco, a sweeping infinity pool, and a Western-inspired bedroom that screams chic nostalgia.
Nestled by the shimmering ocean in Malibu, California, this life-size dollhouse is not your regular Airbnb stay. It’s Barbie’s partner, Ken, who has listed this unique paradise, crafting the Airbnb listing with his quirky charm. Known for his beachy, laid-back style, Ken infuses the iconic dollhouse with his personal “Kenergy,” creating a rental experience that’s as much Barbie as Ken.
Following a successful run on Airbnb to celebrate Barbie’s 60th anniversary in 2019, the Malibu Dreamhouse gets a fresh new spin. The revamp coincides with Barbie’s live-action debut in the forthcoming Barbie film, where Margot Robbie steps into the role of our favorite blonde doll.
The standout attraction in this beachfront manor is the cowboy-themed bedroom, a homage to Ken’s unique style. Dotted with cowhide rugs, cowboy hats, and horse-printed throws, the bedroom also houses Ken’s eclectic closet. Guests can indulge their fashion instincts by borrowing Ken’s fringed cowboy shirts and strumming on his guitar.
Of course, Barbie’s legacy remains integral to the Dreamhouse. Hanging in the closet, guests can find some of her iconic clothing, including the unforgettable high-heeled pink shoe with fluffy feather decoration seen in the Barbie movie.
Bask in the California sun at the heart of this iconic mansion. Atop one of the many terraces, an outdoor disco dance floor awaits guests, awash in vibrant hues of pink, purple, and yellow. Accompanied by its own DJ deck, it’s the perfect spot to dance the night away.
The Dreamhouse doesn’t stop there. A bright pink outdoor lounging area, a fully equipped outdoor gym, and a chic outdoor kitchen complete the Barbie-Ken fusion aesthetic.
Dive into the infinity pool or barbecue while soaking up the breathtaking Malibu beach views. Ken’s signature touch is evident everywhere, from the Western-style swing door, adorned with a horse image and “Kendom Saloon” to the cleverly repurposed “Barbie” sign, now reading “Ken.”
Fancy some local activities? From shopping and surfing to rollerblading on the boardwalk, there’s something for everyone. And as souvenirs, guests will take home their own set of yellow-and-pink Impala skates and a surfboard.
Get ready to book this exclusive experience on July seventeenth for stays on July twenty-first and July twenty-second, 2023. The best part? The stay is absolutely free, all thanks to Ken who just couldn’t put a price on Barbie’s Malibu DreamHouse. In commemoration of the Barbie movie, Airbnb is making a one-time donation to the charity Save the Children.
So, are you ready to spend a night in the ultimate pink paradise? Can you resist the chance to dive into a world where childhood fantasies come to life?
