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

Hoisted by crane, this house features more than 8,000 colorful balloons and is a highly detailed replica of Ellie’s adventure book, furniture and Carl’s glasses. Booking requests for this property close at 11:59 PM PT on May 13, 2024.

This home is just one of many unveiled in a new Airbnb listing category, Icons – a new series of epic stays and experiences. Airbnb brings visitors’ imaginations to life and recently unveiled the first group of 11 listings.

On July 26, 2024, guests can book a one-night stay in a room behind the famous clock face of the Musée d’Orsay for the opening ceremony of the Paris Olympic Games. From the private balcony, guests have a beautiful view of the event and ultimately sleep behind the resting place of the Olympic torch.

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