Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.
And soon, you can keep them all close at the New York City mansion made famous from the 1972 absolute classic The Godfather, which will be available to rent on Airbnb from July 28.
The iconic 1930s built home is instantly recognisable from the front, with the stately drive and gate lined with hedges leading to the stonewalled exterior of the famous house.
While renovations have been made throughout there are still many recognisable features from the home, including the study of Michael Corleone (Al Pacino), and Vito Corleone’s basement bar.
The home is based on Staten Island. It follows several other pop-culture bases reinventing themselves as accomodation, like Carrie Bradshaw’s apartment from Sex and the City – also in New York.
This is an unmissable stay for any film buffs or fans of the trilogy. The best thing about this all is that you hardly have to make them an offer they can’t refuse: it’s just $50 USD a night to stay at ‘the family’s house’.
Bridges on routes 440 and 278 get you to Staten Island from other parts of NYC, otherwise you can take the free 25 minute ferry from Manhattan.
Early suggestions are that a stay in the Godfather mansion could cost as little as $50 USD.
