New “Harry Potter”-Themed Airbnb House Is Pure Magic

Since MuggleNet’s beginnings, we have reported about various amazing Harry Potterthemed 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 is a large room from where the bedrooms open. There is a large couch, cushioned chairs, a coffee table, a bookshelf and a flat screen TV. The cushions are Harry Potter themed and house crest flags hang on the bedroom walls.

A Slytherin-themed bedroom is pictured, baking in green lights. The crest is above a king-size bed, there are Slytherin inspired knick-knkacks everywhere, including the bedding, and the walls resemble stone castles.

Two sets of bunk beds with yellow bedding are pictured in a cozy Hufflepuff-themed bedroom. There are a few plants and the wallpaper is painted as if it was made of stone.

In a bedroom, there is a queen-size four-poster bed with transparent curtains. The ceiling is lit with blue fairy-lights. There are pictures of Rowena Ravenclaw and the Ravenclaw crest on the door.

A set of two bunk beds is pictured in a Gryffindor-themed bedroom. There are crimson curtains ont he bed and a fireplace.

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.

 

A single bed is pictured in a bedroom. The walls are painted with the landscape of the Hogwarts grounds, with a huge 3-D image of the Whomping Willow at the head of the bed. The bed is custom designed as Arthur Weasley's pale blue Ford Anglia.

Good night and make sure the Whomping Willow doesn’t bite…

 

There is a bedroom with red brick walls like Platform 9 and 3/4, complete with a half-vanished truck and Hedwig's cage. The bed is black and red and shaped as the front of the Hogwarts Express.

All aboard the Hogwarts Express!

 

There is a bedroom with red brick wallpaper. We get to see the view fromt he bed, which is shaped like the Hogwarts Express, with a huge, round train element at the foot of the bed that seems just like a vintage, wrought-iron construction.

The Hogwarts Express is a sleeper train in Wizards Way.

 

There is a bedroom with wallpaper that resembles a castle's stone walls, and painted bookshelves on each side of the bed. There is also a painting of Fawkes perched on his marble pillar. There are small steps on each side of the bed. At the foot of the bed, there is a huge desk that looks very like Dumbledore's desk.

A queen-size bed for the headmaster

 

A sliding door with green flames painted on it is open to allow us a view into a bedroom.We can just see the bed in a Diagon Alley-themed bedroom. The headboard is the dome of Gringotts with the escaped and furious dragon perched on top of it, all scupted for real..

The spiders seem to be on the run from the escaped dragon in the Diagon Alley bedroom.

 

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.

 

We look down on two fligths of beige stairs. All the walls are covered with paintings of monarchs and others.

Are you feeling watched yet?

 

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.

 

There is a large dark room with big, comfortable sofas and cushions. The walls are painted as the Dark Forest at Howarts. Because of the ultra-violet lights, we can see glow-in-the-dark Patronuses and Dementors among the trees.

The theater room has everything you need for a movie-marathon: comfy couches, a snack trolley, and of course, Patronuses and Dementors.

 

The movie room at Wizards Way has a huge flatscreen TV and bean bags as well as big couches and dark curtains.

Watching Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban in this spooky movie room would be quite an experience.

 

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!
