Guests can experience all things the ’80s in this Airbnb. Located in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, this immersive 80s-themed Airbnb features a decked out ’80s-themed bedroom equipped with two twin beds and two retro couches where guests can get comfortable and listen to some music on the 1986 Magnavox stereo, watch throwbacks on VHS and DVD, or go crazy and play a game on every video game console that was made in the era.

Guests will also have their private entrance to the bedroom, a private half bathroom with a shower, and a kitchenette with a mini fridge. The arcade is perhaps the biggest draw, and anyone staying at the Airbnb can tour the arcade room and choose a three-hour block to play the games in the arcade. This Airbnb is home to the largest private collection of working golden-age arcade games on the East Coast, so there won’t be a problem finding a game that’s for you.

The home is near Wake Forest University and downtown, so guests can indulge in the various restaurants, shops, and bars nearby before returning to the nest of the ’80s.
