Watch Will Smith Give a Tour of the Mansion From ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel Air’

Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff give fans an exclusive look inside the original home from the ’90s sitcom.

The mansion from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air recently joined Airbnb thanks to Will Smith in celebration of the show’s 30th anniversary. On Monday, alongside DJ Jazzy Jeff, Smith shares an inside look at the beloved house made famous by the ‘90s sitcom. 

In a new video, fans are taken on a tour of the ground floor of one of America’s most famous homes. Though Uncle Phil and Aunt Viv aren’t there when Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff enter the home, it’s quite apparent that the entire home has been renovated. There are quite a few modern touches throughout the space which has tons of square footage. One major detail worth mentioning is the fact that the home was redone to appear as if its Will’s character’s pool house. 

The main bedroom pulls directly from the aesthetics of the late ‘90s. The center of it features a bed while the walls are filled with graffiti art. Additionally, this room includes vintage pairs of Air Jordan 5’s that became synonymous with his character on his show. This room is also outfitted with newly designed Fresh Prince merch.

After fans get a glance at the room with graffiti, Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff move on to a dining room. The lengthy table at the center of this room only has two seats directly across from one another. 

Before the clip ends, Will is joined by previous cast members including Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Daphne Maxwell Reid and Joseph Marcell. The former crew also gets a chance to reminisce inside the large home.  

“This image represents all that the Banks family represented,” Smith shared in the video. “All of the hopes and all of the dreams, and possibilities, and [also] being able to excel in the world.” 

In case you still wanted to try your luck at renting out the famous mansion, according to Smith, bookings open tomorrow. We previously reported the home would be available to parties of two for $30 a night on these specific dates: October 2, 5, 8, 11 and 14. You must be a resident of L.A. County to book. The listing is available here

The Prince of Bel-Air reunion special which was recently announced will air around Thanksgiving on HBO Max. Additionally, a reboot of the original series has been picked up for two seasons at NBC’s Peacock. It’ll be executive produced by Will Smith and the show’s original producer, Quincy Jones.

Take a look at the entire tour below.
