Barbie fan-fever is full swing as we await the release of the franchise’s latest film starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling.

This summer, airbnb will be listing Ken’s Dreamhouse and anyone can book in for a one-night stay – but there’s a catch.

The Dreamhouse is a long distance from Ireland –  based in Malibu, California – and there are only limited spots available.

Ken has revamped part of Barbie’s Malibu DreamHouse with everything he loves and though guests can clearly see his *excuse the pun* ‘Ken-ergy,’ Barbie’s signature pink remains throughout the life-size, toy-inspired home.

“We all have dreams, and Barbie is lucky enough to have a house full of them,” said Ken.

“But now, it’s my turn, and I can’t wait to host guests inside these one-of-a-kind – dare I say, one-of-a-Ken? – digs.”

The details

The stunning mansion is located in sunny Malibu, with an oceanfront view and featuring panoramic views that serve as the perfect backdrop for Ken’s picture-plastic world.

Fans will be able to request to book Ken’s bedroom in the Malibu DreamHouse for two individual one-night stays for up to two guests each on July 21 and July 22, 2023.

All stays will be free of charge – because Ken couldn’t figure out how to put a price on Barbie’s Malibu Dreamhouse.

While in the DreamHouse, guests will have the opportunity to:

  • take a spin through Ken’s awesome wardrobe to find their best beach fit. Look out Barbie, Ken’s got quite the closet too!
  • channel their inner cowboy and learning a line dance or two on Ken’s outdoor disco dance floor or performing a sunset serenade on Ken’s guitar
  • challenge their fellow guests to a “beach off” with plenty of sunbathing and chillaxing by the infinity pool
  • take home a piece of the Kendom with their very own set of yellow-and-pink Impala rollerblades and surfboards
