As Airbnb stunts go, this one takes the pink cake. One lucky renter got a once-in-a-lifetime chance to book the official Barbie Malibu Dreamhouse for a one-time, two-night stay October 27 – 29, 2019…for just $120. By contrast, the plastic Barbie Malibu House Doll Playset costs $100 at Target.
The multi-million-dollar home is no dollhouse. It’s a luxurious three-story, two-bedroom, two-bath house high up in the Malibu hills, with panoramic ocean views, private pool, hot tub, theater, and closet containing a life-size Barbie (or Ken, we don’t judge) wardrobe. And, of course, there’s parking onsite for your pink convertible “Dream ‘Vette.” Car not included.
But the rental does come with a complete glam squad: a home-cooked meal by private chef Gina Clarke-Helm, a makeover with hairstylists Jen Atkin of Mane Addicts Creator Collective, a fencing lesson with Ibtihaj Muhammad, and a visit to Memorial Space Center with aerospace engineer Jill Meyers.
