‘The Godfather’ home now an Airbnb rental and so close to NJ
If you remember Vito Corleone’s house where Connie is getting married in the opening scenes of “The Godfather,” can you imagine yourself sleeping in it? Not with fish, no worries. It is now an Airbnb rental.
The 1930s Tudor on Staten Island chosen for the classic 1972 film was last bought in 2016 for more than $2 million after a heavy renovation.
The facade is however still very recognizable as the facade of the film house. It is only this famous exterior that was used in the film. Any scene inside the house was performed on a sound stage.
It’s over 6,000 square feet, has five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and work done in 2012 includes a gourmet kitchen, custom moldings, fireplaces, natural stone bathrooms, and remember where Vito dies. in the tomato garden? This has been replaced by a luxurious saltwater swimming pool.
Oh, there’s also a gym, games room and pub.
Here comes the crazy part. The owners rent it out on Airbnb for a crazy price of $50 per night if you do a 30 day rental. Many have questioned the cost. I too thought this must have been a typo, but every post about it has confirmed what is practically a theft.
It is said to be a one-time rental for one month from August 1-31 and will go on rental Wednesday, July 27 at 1 p.m.
Here is a glimpse of the interior.
Here is this gourmet kitchen. Now, where are those gourmet cannolis hiding?
Scotch would taste so much better in this living room.
An office, nicer than my whole house, where offers can be made and not refused.
I still can’t figure out how you can sleep in this mansion for $50 a night.
Remember when I said game room?
Do you remember when I said pub?
Remember when I said saltwater pool?
