I don’t know about you, but I love themed interior decor. Now, in my own place, I’d probably opt for an 80s theme or something else that looks and feels retro and vintage. But for a quick little weekend away, staying in a movie-themed home definitely sounds like something I could get on board with.

Airbnb is notorious for listing extravagant homes, but some of their most popular properties hone in on the population’s most favourite pastime: movies.

Fancy a holiday? Here are our absolute favourite film-inspired Airbnbs up for grabs:

Shrek

We had to kick things off with this incredible Shrek-themed home, or swamp I should say.

Twilight

Check out these Twilight homes for something slightly more emo and dramatic.

Stayed in Bella’s house and have been chasing that high ever since. It’s where the 1st movie was filmed and is now an Airbnb owned by amazing fans who put so much care into every detail 🖤 #twilight #twilightsaga #twilightforever #twilighttiktok #twilightswanhouse

Friends

While you can’t actually stay in the OG Friends apartment, this themed Airbnb is a pretty close second.

@friends.airbnb

Luckily, you can bring friends with you to this iconic Home Alone-inspired house. I definitely wouldn’t want to be left alone in here.

Love Island

Now, I know that Love Island isn’t technically a film, but there was just no way I couldn’t include this summer of love home in the list. It comes with a fully functional confessional booth and everything!

@ninaanngelina

i forgot to record the actual party but my friends documented everything in the confessional #loveislanduk #loveisland

Movie-themed

And if you can’t decide which film to choose from, how about you simply visit this adorable home that’s movie-themed? However, if you’re not a fan of Jaws, I’d probably stay away, or avoid taking a shower during your stay.
