This Balloon House Headlines ‘Icons’ The New Epic Airbnb Category

Airbnb guests will have a chance to stay in a replica house from the Disney and Pixar movie Up. The floating house will fly high above the red rocks of Abiquiu, New Mexico in celebration of the 15th anniversary of Up. 

Hoisted by a crane, this house features over 8,000 colorful balloons and is an extremely detailed replica of Ellie’s adventure book to the furniture to Carl’s glasses. Requests to book for this property close at 11:59 PM PT on May 13, 2024.

This house is just one of the many unveiled in a new listing category from Airbnb, Icons — a new batch of epic stays and experiences. Bringing visitors’ imaginations to life, Airbnb recently unveiled the first group of 11 offerings. 

On July 26, 2024, guests can book a one-night stay in a room behind the Musée d’Orsay’s famed clock face for the opening ceremony of the Paris Olympics. From the private balcony, guests will have an amazing view of the event and eventually sleep behind the resting place of the Olympic torch. 

Marvel fans can stay in a Westchester, New York, estate at the X-Men’97’s Xavier Institute complete with a Danger Room Training Session. Another offering is staying at Prince’s Purple Rain Minneapolis home and listening to rare tracks. 

Racing car fans can spend a night at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello, Italy, in a bed crafted from the same leather as Ferrari car seats. Your car bed will be surrounded by eight Formula 1 cars.

Other offerings include celebrity experiences such as a gaming experience with Khaby Lame in Milan and a private and tequila tasting with Kevin Hart. 

Designed by Airbnb’s custom team, each stay and experience were curated to bring the extraordinary to life and offer Airbnb’s exclusive access to once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.
