If you’ve ever dreamed of spending the night surrounded by priceless Ferraris — or wanted to wake up in the house of treasures that is the Musée d’Orsay — Airbnb has got you covered with its new Icons program.

The new category of stay aims to offer truly once-in-a-lifetime experiences at affordable prices, ranging from a private performance by Doja Cat and gaming with the world’s highest-paid TikTok creator Khaby Lame, to sleeping in the balloon house from Up.

The 11 experiences announced so far only marks the beginning of the program, with plenty more to be introduced later this year. To make these extraordinary experiences accessible, most are offered either for free or no more than US$100 (AU$150) per guest.

“Icons take you inside worlds that only existed in your imagination — until now,” said Brian Chesky, Airbnb Co-Founder and CEO.

“As life becomes increasingly digital, we’re focused on bringing more magic into the real world. With Icons, we’ve created the most extraordinary experiences on Earth.”

Prospective guests can apply through the Airbnb app for a chance to secure their booking. Those lucky enough to be selected will receive a digital golden ticket, which Airbnb promises to distribute more than 4,000 of throughout the rest of 2024.

The 11 Airbnb Icons So Far

  • Drift off in the Up house 
    Sleep inside one of Disney and Pixar’s most iconic homes — and yes, it floats. You’ll explore Carl’s world in this detailed re-creation of his home, complete with more than 8,000 balloons, and located in the scenic red rocks of Abiquiu, New Mexico.
  • Spend the night in the Ferrari Museum 
    Immerse yourself in the world of racing with a stay at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello, Italy. You’ll sleep on a bed crafted from the same leather as Ferrari seats, take a lap with Scuderia Ferrari ambassador driver Marc Gené, and head to Emilia-Romagna’s premier race as a VIP. 
  • Step into X-Men ‘97 
    Live like the X-Men as you stay in a 2D animated re-creation of Marvel Animation’s X-Mansion in Westchester, New York. You’ll discover your mutant abilities and even train in the Danger Room. 
  • Go VIP with Kevin Hart 
    Kevin Hart is taking you inside his members-only Coramino Live Lounge for an A-list evening. You’ll join Kevin and his friends in this secret speakeasy, where they’ll treat you to a tequila tasting and live stand-up by the best comedians in the game.
  • Wake up in the Musée d’Orsay 
    Stay in the Paris art museum’s iconic clock room, which has been transformed into a luxurious bedroom by Mathieu Lehanneur, designer of the Paris 2024 Games torch and cauldron. From the terrace, you’ll witness the historic Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games along the River Seine.
  • Join a living room session with Doja Cat 
    Fresh off a tour performing on the world’s biggest stages, Doja is hosting you for a much more intimate experience. You’ll enjoy an unforgettable living room performance from the Grammy-winning artist, including her favourite songs and tracks from her latest album.
  • Stay in Prince’s Purple Rain house 
    Prince purchased the Minneapolis, Minnesota home featured in the legendary film Purple Rain, but it’s never been available to the public until now. Explore the home and go crazy for rare and special tracks from Prince’s world in an exclusive studio session.
  • Game with Khaby Lame 
    TikTok sensation Khaby Lame invites you to his hometown of Milan, Italy for an epic, overnight gaming experience. You’ll stay in a one-of-a-kind gaming loft that Khaby designed himself, where you’ll #learnfromkhaby and face off with him in a Fortnite Battle Royale. 
  • Go on tour with Feid 
    Join the reggaeton superstar on his FERXXOCALIPSIS World Tour for an entire week. You’ll join the crew for rehearsals, ride along on the tour bus, and get backstage access for every show.
  • Live like Bollywood star Janhvi Kapoor 
    Janhvi Kapoor is inviting you into the legendary, never-before-seen Kapoor family home in Chennai, India. From learning her Bollywood beauty secrets to tasting her favourite southern Indian dishes, Janhvi will host you personally on this ultimate overnight stay.
  • Make core memories with Inside Out 2 
    In anticipation of the June 14 release of Disney and Pixar’s new movie Inside Out 2, you’re invited to an overnight stay at Headquarters, the control centre of Riley’s emotions. Your host, Joy, will welcome you into her vibrant world to witness the emotions in action and help keep things in balance.
