There’s something about checking into a vacation home, looking around, and thinking, “This is where Harry Potter’s parents died!” that somehow makes the stay more whimsical. Airbnbs have always had a neighborhood aesthetic that hotels struggle to replicate. Now, they’re also immersing us in fictional universes.
Many filming locations from our favorite movies and TV shows are available for rent. From Bella Swan’s house in Twilight, to Harry Potter’s childhood home in Godric’s Hollow, to the setting of Ari Gold’s short-lived Italian retirement from Entourage, you can actually stay in the houses, apartments, villas, and cabins that Hollywood has made famous.
These are the best homes from movies and TV you can rent on Airbnb.
If this windmill looks familiar, it’s probably because you saw that one episode of The Bachelorette. Then-bachelorette Hannah Brown famously revealed that she “f*cked in a windmill” on one of her dates, and the revelation led to quite a bit of drama among the guys she did not f*ck in a windmill. Well, this is the windmill. Located in Nikithianos, Greece, this stone accommodation promises all the romance and (hopefully) none of the drama featured in the show. Despite its five minutes of fame, the intimate one-bedroom windmill comes relatively cheap at just $72 per night.
Believe it or not, Twilight’s Bella Swan doesn’t actually live in Forks, WA, but in St. Helens, OR. At least, that’s where the filming took place. When Bella moves from Phoenix to Forks at the start of Twilight to live with her father, this is the house that was filmed. It’s also where she did some digging to determine that Edward was, in fact, a vampire, and it’s even the site of their first kiss. The 1930s house was used throughout the first movie, and now you can sleep in the same room as Bella and Edward. Reliving your favorite Twilight scenes isn’t cheap, though, costing around $379 per night.
Unlike Tony Stark, it shouldn’t require a Thanos-snap for you to escape to this cabin in the woods. Located in Fairburn, GA, the cabin served as Tony Stark, Pepper, and daughter Morgan’s hideout at the start of Avengers: Endgame after Thanos decimated half of life. The six-bedroom cabin is right on the Chattahoochee River, and the private property has the ultimate level of privacy. Perhaps unsurprisingly, it comes at a Tony Stark-appropriate price of $800 per night.
You might not envy the dangerous lifestyle of assassin Villanelle, from Killing Eve, but there’s a good chance you envy her style and Art Nouveau apartment. Well, now you can actually stay there courtesy of Airbnb. Located on a quiet street in Barcelona’s Gràcia neighborhood, the apartment is defined by its vintage furniture and modernist interior. It features ornate ceilings, stained-glass windows, columns, and an overall aesthetic that will make you feel like you’re living at the turn of the century. The spacious, lavish apartment can sleep four guests and costs $562 per night, which isn’t too bad.
This house doesn’t exactly conjure warm and fuzzy memories, but it’s still a must-visit for true Harry Potter fans. The Da Vere House in Lavenham, England, served as Harry’s childhood home in the movies — you know, the place where Voldemort killed his parents and tried to kill him. It’s a pretty simple house, with a log fireplace, courtyard garden, two bedrooms, and the option for a full English breakfast, though Potterin fans will doubtless find magic here anyway. Lavenham is also considered one of the UK’s best-preserved medieval villages, starring as Godric’s Hollow in the films. Staying at the site of Harry’s childhood trauma will cost around $227 per night.
Entourage fans remember super agent Ari Gold’s short-lived retirement in Italy. A stress-free, relaxing stay in an Italian villa might not have been his style, but no one will fault you if it’s yours. Now you can rent the guesthouse that featured at the very end of the hit series, and the beginning of the movie. And since it’s not actually in Italy, it’s more accessible than you might think. This Italian-style retreat in Los Angeles has a huge swimming pool, lush gardens, and views of Downtown LA. You don’t even have to be a Hollywood power player to afford it, with a cost-per-night of just $395.
When Shoshanna of Girls left New York and went to Tokyo, she moved into an apartment that might as well have been its own character in the show. More resembling a work of art than an apartment, these lofts in the Mitaka-shi district of Tokyo are paradise for anyone craving color and creative energy in their lodging. The “Reversible Destiny Lofts” are rentable for a week or more, and the Airbnb description invites people to literally “try out living in an artwork.” For just $187 per night, these one-of-a-kind lofts could be your home the next time you visit Tokyo.
