I am dying with envy right now and how I wish I am in the U.S. at this moment so I could rent out Carrie Bradshaw’s apartment !!!!
It’s been hmm 8 years since I met Sarah Jessica Parker in person and it’s been 20 years since I became a fan of her character as the unlucky-in-love advice columnist Carrie Bradshaw and all the things in her closet in Sex and the City. I have been following news about the show reunion and well it is coming.
As anticipation builds to revisit the beloved character in her newest chapter, And Just Like That…, Sarah Jessica Parker is adding Airbnb Host to her repertoire and offering fans a once-in-a-lifetime stay at Carrie’s apartment – lust-worthy closet included.
Sarah Jessica Parker will host two, one-night stays for up to two guests each at a re-creation of Carrie Bradshaw’s apartment on Nov. 12 and 13 for only $23* a night, in honor of the 23 years since we were first introduced to the fashion-forward icon and her friends.
“The Carrie Bradshaw character is near and dear to my heart, and revisiting her world for the continuation of the Sex and the City story has been such a joy,” said Parker. “I’m excited for our audience to experience Carrie’s New York like never before and walk in her shoes, quite literally, for the first time.“

So we couldn’t help but wonder…what would a night at Carrie’s look like? During their stays, guests will be immersed in a quintessentially Carrie experience with:
- A virtual greeting at check-in from Sarah Jessica Parker herself, and a narration reminiscent of each episode’s thought-provoking intro.
- The opportunity to descend the steps of her brownstone and stroll the streets of Manhattan (splash from a city bus not included).
- Cosmopolitans for a toast.
- The chance to admire and play dress-up in Carrie’s iconic closet, complete with her favorite looks (like the Patricia Field tutu she wears in the opening credits), designers, and of course, shoes!
- A styling session and photoshoot where guests can channel their inner fashionistas.
To celebrate Carrie’s return to television screens, Airbnb will make a one-time donation to The Studio Museum in Harlem, a contemporary art museum championing the work of artists of African descent.
