Watch: Will Smith Gives Tour of the "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" Mansion

The freshest of princes returns to Bel-Air!

To commemorate the 30th anniversary of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, star of the show Will Smith put the Bel-Air mansion on Airbnb (courtesy of its current owners). In case potential houseguests need a real lay of the land breakdown, Will and his TV best friend DJ Jazzy Jeff took a tour of the family home in a YouTube video uploaded on Sept. 28. 

The inside looked much less homey than it did on the show. Instead, it's been converted into a museum dedicated to show Will's love for hip-hop culture. The walls are covered with limited edition sneakers and the closets house apparel from the 30-piece clothing line dedicated to the 30th anniversary.  

"It has beautiful nostalgic value," Will said as he and Jeff made TikTok videos outside by the pool—one of many created in the home. 

The TikTok king was later accompanied by the rest of the cast of the iconic show including Joseph Marcell (who played Geoffrey the Butler), Karyn Parsons (Hilary Banks), Daphne Maxwell Reid (Vivian Banks), and Tatyana Ali (Ashley Banks). Soon as the TV fam walked into the house, they noticed the framed photo of James Avery, who played Philip Banks. James passed away in December 2013.

As for the Airbnb, it is live and (sadly) already completely booked until Sept. 2023. The lucky guests will have full access to one area of the house. 

"I'm Will Smith, actor, producer, rapper, philanthropist, prince... and now Airbnb host (thanks to the mansion's owners who are allowing me to list it!)," the star wrote on the profile page. "Some may say I've done it all, but I've never opened the doors to a wing of the iconic mansion that helped launch my career. It holds a lot of special memories for me and my friends, and I hope you'll leave with memories (and a dope handshake!) to last you well beyond your stay."

Earlier this month it was announced that the comedy show will have a dramatic-style reboot special on HBO Max, set to hit the streaming platform "around Thanksgiving."
