Airbnb wants to make you an offer you can’t refuse. By Stacey Leasca
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of “The Godfather,” Airbnb is offering fans of the iconic film franchise the chance to book the Staten Island mansion used for the exterior shots of the 1972 film.
The 5-bedroom 6-bath home was built in 1930 and has all the charm you would imagine from the era spread across its 6,248-square-foot footprint, paired with plenty of modern amenities to ensure a comfortable stay.
Here’s a peek inside the Godfather mansion
Inside, guests will find spaces fit for a don, including an oversized living room with rich leather furnishings, exposed dark wood beams, a fireplace for chilly nights, and a massive television over the mantel, ideal for screening the film during a stay. There’s also a parlour area with a chessboard ready for play so you can see if you’re really one step ahead of the competition.
Up to five guests can book the home for private access to the mansion for the entire month of August for just USD 50 (INR 3,997) a night. Booking for the 30-night stay opens on Wednesday, July 27 at 1 pm ET (July 27 at 10:30 pm IST)— we promise, no horse heads included.
The home’s bedrooms come with their own romance, including king-sized beds with cosy linens, private sitting areas, and adjoining bathrooms with features like clawfoot tubs and rain showers.
The home also has a home office space with an oversized desk that will make you feel like a Corleone, along with a chef‘s kitchen that’s prime for bringing the family (because you “don’t ever take sides with anyone against the family”) together. There’s also a fully stocked pub in the basement, a game room, and a full gym available as well.
Its exterior spaces are equally as charming, including a saltwater pool, cabana space, outdoor fireplace, and an outdoor pizza oven to perfect the Italian scene this summer.
