Travel Back To The ’80s At This Marty McFly Inspired Airbnb
By Rachel George
Indulge in 80’s nostalgia in this pastel-colored Airbnb located in Dallas’ vibrant Lower Greenville neighborhood. Remember playing Ninja Turtles, listening to Tina Turner or Prince, and falling off your Hover Board? Those are the memories you never forget.
Hosts Jeremy and Kelsey Turners wanted to create a memorable 80’s style home away from home.
“I had the idea when I was thinking about how kids’ rooms in the ‘80s and ‘90s movies always looked so fun and over the top — think Blank Check and Big,” Jeremy said. “I thought it’d be fun to make a whole house like that on Airbnb. Then my wife and I spent the summer painting, furnishing and collecting pieces from the ‘80s.”
There’s a kitchen with basic cooking utensils, but you won’t need them, at least not for breakfast. Grab a bowl of your favorite childhood cereal or a pop tart. As long as there are Apple Jacks on the table, I’m good.
Co-owner Kelsey was Too Legit To Quit when she handpainted geometric shapes and a retro grid in the dining room. She spent last summer collecting pieces of furniture from the 80s.
The McFly opened last summer and featured this Crayola- inspired living room with games and a life-size crayon. Jeremy takes it as a compliment when someone says they felt like they were walking into a cartoon.
This pad is packed with entertainment, including the throwback Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade game and Nintendo system-complete with RoboCop, Super Mario, Tetris and Mickey Mousecapade for the kiddos in the living room. It’s free, so keep your coins in your pocket.
This listing holds up to 6 guests and features a queen bed and bunk bed set.
The pink metal wire Flamingo is the standout in this fashionable King bedroom, another popular ’80s trend.
On the parent tip, there’s a kids pack n play and travel crib available for use.
