New York, Aug 10: Community-driven hospitality company Airbnb is offering visitors to rent out US President Dold Trump’s early childhood home in Queens, New York, the media reported. The former Trump residence, located in Jamaica Estates, a wealthy neighbourhood in Queens, is available for $725 per night, reports CNN.
The listing features five bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms, along with an origil kitchen and “opulent furnishings (that) represent the style and affluence in which the Trumps would have lived”, according to the Airbnb advertisement. “This is a unique and special opportunity to stay in the home of a sitting president.”
Built by the President’s father, Fred Trump in the 1940s, the Tudor-style home is where Dold Trump lived until he was four years old, and the property’s address is listed on his birth certificate.
The 2,500 sq.ft home was sold last December to real estate investor Michael Davis, who flipped the property to an unmed bidder in March for $2.14 million.
In the past, Trump has often mentioned about his time at the residence. When then-presidential candidate Trump was shown a photo of his old residence in an appearance on NBC’s “The Tonight Show” starring Jimmy Fallon, Trump said “I had a really good childhood; oh, that’s sad to look at that, I want to buy it”.
