New “Harry Potter”-Themed Airbnb House Is Pure Magic
Since MuggleNet’s beginnings, we have reported about various amazing Harry Potter–themed holiday destinations and hotels. Some only hint at the magical story we all love, and some go all out to replicate wizarding world locations as faithfully as possible to the books and/or movies. This new Airbnb listing called Wizards Way by Loma Homes is just off the scale.
The holiday home is located in ChampionsGate, Florida, and you can have the whole villa to yourself and your family and friends. There is plenty of space: With eight bedrooms, ten beds varying from king-size to bunk beds, a spacious common room, a humongous kitchen and dining area, a theater room, a Quidditch-themed game room, a pool and a waterpark area, a bar, a sand volleyball court, and two golf courses, the only thing to worry about is calling dibs on your Hogwarts House-themed bedroom or who gets to sit in Dumbledore’s chair at dinner.
There are not only House-themed bedrooms but also a few more designed around other places in the wizarding world. There are bedrooms dedicated to the Whomping Willow, the Hogwarts Express, Dumbledore’s study, and Diagon Alley. Each of them has its own unique custom furniture and decorations.
The villa is bursting with Easter eggs for fans of Harry Potter. The walls above the staircases are covered with paintings that follow your steps, and there is a comfy cupboard under the stairs.
You bump into hand-crafted designs at every step, such as a sign to the Ministry of Magic above the toilet and even some used socks hanging in the SPEW-themed bathroom. Furthermore, there are enchanted objects hidden around the house, as well as a Sorting Hat, glow-in-the-dark Patronuses and Dementors, and many more details at every step that evoke memorable moments from the story.
The Airbnb’s host has really thought about everything and everyone, noting that “while serious fans will marvel at the authentic attention to detail, those who haven’t seen the movies also have a lot to be excited about.” You can really tell just how much thought went into the design. Check out the walk-through video below and see for yourself.
If you are traveling to Florida for some wizarding fun at Universal Orlando, why not stay at Wizards Way? It is especially perfect especially for large groups and just a 30-minute drive from the theme park. There is also free parking, and the pool is heated. Good news: Merpeople are also welcome!
