(Newser) – Want to live like a Trump? Now's your chance: The president's New York City boyhood home is on Airbnb. The 1940 Tudor-style house in Queens is being offered for $725 a night. The listing says the house has five bedrooms and sleeps up to 20 thanks to a slew of bunkbeds. The amenities include a giant cutout of President Trump in the living room, which the listing calls "a great companion for watching Fox News late into the night." The listing also notes that "not much has been changed since the Trumps lived here, the kitchen is original and the opulent furnishings represent the style and affluence in which the Trumps would have lived." Smoking, pets, and parties are no-nos, reports the AP.

Trump photos and memorabilia appear throughout, though the listing makes clear the home has no ties to the president or White House. The cutout isn't the only quirk. The listing notes guests "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." Newsday reports that the principal of Paramount Realty USA, Misha Hagani, confirmed the listing's authenticity. Paramount auctioned the house to an unidentified buyer in March for $2.14 million (some have claimed it was bought by a woman from China). Hagani says he can't disclose whether the home was placed on Airbnb by the property owner or by a leaseholder.
