A Life-Size Version of the Barbie Malibu Dreamhouse Is Available for Rent
Barbie has been a household name for 60 years, and even though she's changed looks and jobs over the decades, one thing has remained constant: her swoonworthy Malibu Dreamhouse. Now that dream(house) has become a life-size reality, and you can stay in it via Airbnb. Barbie's three-story mansion is tucked away in the heart of Malibu and fully decked out with an infinity pool, walk-in closet, cinema room, and more.
The Barbie Dreamhouse is open to book on October 23 at 11am PST, and one lucky guest, along with three of their BFFs, will get a two-night stay from October 27-29. In line with Barbie's 60's anniversary, the house will cost just $60/night. Airbnb will also make a donation to one of the charities involved in The Barbie Dream Gap Project.
In addition to the chance to soak up some California sun, the Barbie Dreamhouse Airbnb experience includes a meet and greet with celeb hairstylist Jen Atkin, a one-on-one fencing lesson with Olympian Ibtihaj Muhammad (who has her own Barbie doll), a cooking lesson with Malibu chef Gina Clarke-Helm, and a behind-the-scenes tour of Columbia Memorial Space Center with pilot and aerospace engineer Jill Meyers. Talk about girl power.
