Tampa-Area Airbnb Looks Like Popular Sitcom Series ‘Friends’
TAMPA, FL — If you’re a die-hard fan of the hit show “Friends,” you might want to book your next Airbnb at a Florida property that transports you to the world of the hit TV show.
After two months of research, Frank Albert told Patch that he recently transformed his 1920s bungalo in Ybor City into a replica of the set from the popular show “Friends.”
“I loved watching it [the show] to grow. I love all the fun themes, colors etc. and I thought it would be super fun to recreate,” he said.
“Friends” first aired on NBC in 1994 and ran for 10 seasons. The show revolved around the lives of six friends in their 20s and 30s who lived in Manhattan. Guests can unofficially be the “seventh friend” during their stay.
Starting at around $240 a night, guests will experience a heavy dose of mid-1990s and early-2000s nostalgia.
With tons of replicas, Albert said the rooms were inspired by a cross between Monica and Rachel’s apartment, Joey and Chandler’s apartment, and Central Perk.
True “Friends” fans will also appreciate the many Easter eggs such as Marcel, the Chick and the Duck, lobsters, a “Friends” cookbook, table football and even the shiny book in the freezer, according to Albert. .
“We just started a little over a month ago, and we have bookings that span the next four months. That being said, we still have a lot of weekday openings and these rates are a lot too. lower than weekends, making it the perfect location for staycationers,” Albert said.
