Live the Barbie Lifestyle by Renting Her Malibu Dream House on Airbnb

by Matador Creators Jun 26, 2023

Whether you grew up a Barbie fan, or simply wondered “what’s the big deal?” while watching friends collect dozens of the popular dolls, there’s no denying Barbie’s cultural impact. For many, she’s a staple of childhood. For others, she’s simply a staple of their childhood TV commercials. Even if the doll has faded to the back of your memory, she’s rocketing back to relevance now with the highly-anticipated release of the BARBIE movie. To celebrate, Airbnb is launching a Barbie’s Malibu Dreamhouse experience, hosted by none other than Ken himself.

Ken is inviting two guests to rent the newly revamped Malibu Dreamhouse for a limited stay – on July 21 and 22, 2023. Located in Malibu, California, the Dreamhouse features panoramic ocean views, pink interiors, and some of Ken’s favorite things (like rollerblading). Guests will also have the opportunity to comb through Ken’s closet for the perfect beach fit, learn line dancing on Ken’s outdoor disco dance floor, perform a sunset serenade on Ken’s guitar, chill by the infinity pool, and even take home your own set o yellow and pink Impala rollerblades and surfboards.

You can request to book Ken’s room in Barbie’s Malibu Dreamhouse starting July 17 at 10am PT, on Airbnb’s website. Only two guests will be chosen for separate one-night stays, however, so you’ll need a bit of luck on your side. To sweeten the deal, the stay is not only free, but Airbnb will also be making a one-time donation to Save the Children, an organization that provides learning resources and support to children, families, and communities.
