You Can Stay In A Massive ‘Harry Potter’-Themed Airbnb With 8 Bedrooms

To say that the Harry Potter series is popular would be putting it mildly. The books and movies are a worldwide pop culture phenomenon. While most people, especially fans, probably don’t question it, some may wonder: why is Harry Potter so popular?

Harry Potter is partially popular because of the brilliant writing by J.K. Rowling and the scriptwriters for the movies. Another factor in its popularity is that it portrays its protagonist as searching for and eventually embracing power.

For over 20 years many of us have dreamed of being students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, but if you never received your letter, this vacation rental is the next best thing.

Loma Homes translated the magic of “Harry Potter” into an epic new rental just 30 minutes away from The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando.

The Wizard’s Way villa has eight themed bedrooms with 10 beds, five bathrooms, and dozens of book and movie Easter eggs that fans of the franchise will love.

Here’s a look inside the one-of-a-kind property.

This room features a bed shaped like the Weasley’s flying Ford Anglia stuck in the Whomping Willow tree.

Sleeping in this room will make you feel like you’re flying over the Hogwarts grounds like Ron and Harry in “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.”

The price per night starts at $305

It has 8 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms and can accommodate up to 20 people

Of course, if you’re feeling ambitious, there’s always the Slytherin room.

The Slytherin room features plenty of green accents. This green, dungeon-style room features glowing orbs and a snake motif throughout.

The Diagon Alley room comes with a dragon and a bright-blue wand-repair shop window.

Guests can sleep just under the dragon. Loma Homes

Inside the room, guests can peek inside a wand-repair shop window on Diagon Alley and sleep under a Ukrainian Ironbelly dragon escaping from the roof of Gringotts Wizarding Bank.

Those who are wise, clever, and witty like a Ravenclaw get to sleep in this grand and ethereal room with glowing blueish-purple lights on the ceiling.

The fastest way to Hogwarts is via the Hogwarts Express room on platform 9 ¾.

Surrounded by brick walls with half of Harry’s trolley sticking out of them (complete with his owl, Hedwig), the bed in this room is made to look like the front of the Hogwarts Express. According to the listing, the smokestack actually smokes and whistles.

You can also opt to sleep in Dumbledore’s office.

The staircases are actually drawers. In this towering room, you’ll find a mural of Dumbledore’s personal library of books and, of course, Fawkes the phoenix. The staircases might not lead anywhere, but they are designed with drawers for all of your clothes.

You can also sleep in your house dormitory of choice. The Gryffindor room is for the daring, courageous, and brave.

The Gryffindor room is decorated in deep reds and golds. The room is red and gold and features a faux fireplace, a golden snitch, and Harry’s Nimbus 2000 broomstick as accents. And just like in the movies, the sturdy wooden bed frames come complete with velvet curtains.

Then there is the less-flashy Hufflepuff dorm.

The Hufflepuff room is simple and bright. Hufflepuffs are known for being fair, honest, and hardworking, so it’s no surprise that this bright-yellow room is kept simple and clean.

If you really want the full “Harry Potter” experience, you can hang out in the cupboard under the stairs.

Just like the room Harry sleeps in at the Dursleys as a kid, you can sleep in the cupboard under the stairs at this villa. If it’s too cramped to get a good night’s sleep, you can just check out the fun decorations and play make-believe.

The stairs don’t move here, but they are lined with portraits and paintings.

Unfortunately, the portraits don’t move and talk like they do at Hogwarts. No Hogwarts-inspired home would be complete without a gallery of portraits lining the stairs.

Don’t be late for breakfast in the Great Hall.

There may not be floating candles or an enchanted ceiling, but you’ll still feel like you’re dining at Hogwarts while seated at this long, wooden table.

The dining area is complete with a replica of Dumbledore’s Great Hall chair and a chandelier of fake candles.

You can also binge all of the films in the Forbidden Forest-themed home theater.

The home theater is the perfect place to catch up on the “Harry Potter” films, and you’ll feel like you’re right in the Forbidden Forest. If you look closely enough (under the black light) you can see a Patronus protecting you from some unwanted Dementors.

The theater can be lit with black lights.

When you’re not asleep, you can search the house for hidden Horcruxes.

There are seven Horcruxes hidden about the house. As a fun challenge, the seven Horcruxes will be hidden around the house before you arrive. It’s up to you to find them and return them to their podium before the end of your stay in order to defeat He Who Must Not Be Named.

Other fun activities include playing in the Quidditch room.

The room comes with a pool table and a Foosball table. Spend some time playing pool or foosball surrounded by a mural of the Hogwarts Quidditch pitch.

There is also an outdoor space with a heated pool, a hot tub, and a huge chessboard.

The backyard lanai is complete with a heated pool and a hot tub where you can relax after a full day of activities.

You can also play chess on the giant, built-in board. It’s not exactly Wizard’s Chess, but that’s probably for the best.

Photographer “Time Travels” by Photoshopping Herself into Old Celebrity Photos

Have you ever imagined if you could go back in time and take a picture with famous people? If yes, you will probably enjoy a similar series in 2013, called “Time Travel” created by an artist, Flora. She is a young fine art photographer from Hungary. She uses exquisite photo manipulation in order to create surreal images that are thematically focused on identity, relationships, and dreams. However, today we will mainly focus on how she discovers the possibilities of the well known “selfie” phenomenon with famous people. Let’s admit that it would be pretty difficult to explain the concept of a selfie to a person from the 20th century. But this fact makes these series even more interesting!

“After the first official picture of a black hole was released last week, I decided to look into the Theory of relativity and I’ve been wondering how cool it was, if I could travel faster than the speed of light, ergo I could travel back in time. While I’ve been making a “selfie” with Albert Einstein (photoshopping myself into a picture of him) I decided to celebrate this amazing discovery with a series of pictures, where I travel back in time. ” writes Flora in her website.

Check out the gallery below. Also, tell us in the comment section below; If you could go back in time who would you like to take a selfie with?
