Reserve Your Spot at ‘Barbie’s Reimagined “Ken-inspired” Dreamhouse in Malibu

Barbie Dreamhouse Malibu

In the lead up to Barbie’s big-screen debut, slated for July 21, the upcoming Greta Gerwig-helmed film has so far hinted at an exciting cinematic journey with its star-studded cast and elaborate set designs. Naturally, a Barbie movie wouldn’t be complete without a liberal splash of pink, and the film’s actors seem to have fully embraced the quintessential Barbie dream, with Barbie’s dream house being an unabashed celebration of all things pink.

John Schreiber, a photojournalist, shared an aerial view of Barbie’s dream house on Twitter, capturing attention with its predominantly pink interior, a water slide, and “Ken” letter balloons floating in the house’s pool. In this view flooded with pink hues that Schreiber spotted from 10 miles away, he conjectures if the house, clearly influenced by Barbie, is part of a marketing gimmick or the film’s actual shooting location. Despite its immersion in pink, the house is not the actual set for the Barbie movie featuring Margot Robbie.


The house featured in the video was an Airbnb listing launched in 2019, dubbed the Malibu Dreamhouse. Staying true to Barbie’s core theme, the house provides a glamorous reinterpretation of Barbie’s all-pink universe. Though the listing was temporarily off the market, the vacation rental app announced today that the newly “ken-ified” dream house will be open for reservations starting July 17 at 10 a.m. PT. Robbie had previously given a virtual tour of the movie set in a video shared with Architectural Digest. The Barbie Dreamhouse, conceptualized by Sarah Greenwood and Katie Spencer, drew inspiration from Palm Springs’ mid-century modernism, which Gerwig feels perfectly encapsulates “the fun about the Dreamhouses.” Take a look at the photos of the updated Airbnb listing below.

Barbie’s Quest to Experience the Real World

This Barbie, it’s fair to say, has transcended her perfect doll persona. The forthcoming live-action rendition of Barbie portrays the eponymous character questioning her very existence. Despite the seemingly flawless and vibrant world she inhabits, she senses that there’s more to life than the utopian Barbie Land. However, all the Barbies in her town appear content with their ideal lives. Ken, played by Ryan Gosling, is a supportive partner and joins Barbie in her quest to discover the real world, but life among humans seems less vibrant and more perilous.

Joining Robbie and Gosling in the film are various versions of Barbie and Ken characters, including Kate McKinnon as Quirky Barbie, Issa Rae as President Barbie, Alexandra Shipp as Writer Barbie, Emma Mackey as Scientist Barbie, Dua Lipa as Mermaid Barbie, and Ritu Arya as Reporter Barbie. Simu Liu, Scott Evans, Ncuti Gatwa, and John Cena appear as different Kens. Michael Cera portrays Ken’s friend Alan, while Helen Mirren narrates the story. Will Ferrell stars as the CEO of Mattel.

Barbie is set to skate into theaters on July 21. You can get a glimpse of the Malibu dreamhouse below and start booking your stay from July 17.
