Trump childhood home listed on Airbnb for $725 per night

Trump childhood home listed on Airbnb for $725 per night

U.S. President Donald Trump's childhood home in NY can now be rent through Airbnb, the online housing rental service, but not many people seem to be interested in staying in it.

The five-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath home in Jamaica Estates, Queens boasts seventeen beds-two sofa beds and many bunk beds, with a few regular ones thrown in.

A view of Donald Trump's childhood home on September 12, 2016, in the Jamaica Estates neighborhood in the Queens borough of New York City.

Among the attractions of the property is a life-size cardboard cutout of the president, described in the listing as "a great companion for watching Fox News late into the night".

Check out the listing here. "This is a unique and special opportunity to stay in the home of a sitting president".

The Tudor-style home was purchased by a limited liability corporation called Trump Birth House, a move that allowed the buyers not to disclose their identity in public records.

"Guest have access to the entire house but should note that I live in one of the bedrooms which will not be accessible to you during your stay", the listing says.

While new owners have long since taken over, the bungalow embraces Trump-centric decor to attract visitors who want to spend a night in the same space the president once did.

The listing is verified on Airbnb. If you flip through the pictures of the home on Airbnb, you see a whole bunch of Trump paintings and framed quotes and things, which, fair.

The host pumps the residence's extras, including a definitely not creepy cut-out of the Donald that looms over the living room.
