Fans of The Godfather can book to stay at the iconic Staten Island Mansion featured in the film this August.

To celebrate the cult film’s 50th anniversary, Airbnb is letting movie buffs spend a month in the five-bedroom, seven-bathroom pad in New York.

Up to five guests can stay at the 6,248-square-foot luxury house, which was built in 1930 and boasts exposed wood beams and a giant living room.

A stay won’t break the bank either, working out at just $50 a night, but whoever manages to snag this unique listing must commit to a 3-day stay from 1-31 August inclusive.

The impressive-sized lounge features brown leather sofas and a huge stone fireplace with TV; there’s also an office and a separate dining room with a chess board set up.

Guests need not worry too much about keeping the sprawling home in shape – according to the advert, “there will be scheduled house cleaners (once a week on Thursdays), pool cleaners (twice a week) and landscapers (once a week on Thursdays or Fridays depending on weather) on site.”

It’s not the first time Airbnb has offered a one-of-a-kind stay.

Listings have previously included the Guinness Storehouse’s Gravity Bar, the Home Alone mansion in Chicago, and Queer Eye’s Bobby Berk recently listed a glamorous California pad he’d renovated on the site.

The swanky accommodation offering, known as “Casa Tierra” is located in California’s Palm Desert, not far from the site of the annual Coachella music festival.

With seven bedrooms, heated pool, vast wooden sun-deck and hot tub, the design-dream rental features tons of Berk’s signature interior flourishes, from black- or dark-painted doors and wooden trim to earthy raw woods and linen soft furnishings.

“My desert oasis, affectionately known as ‘Casa Tierra’, is a fiercely unique Spanish-style getaway featuring more than 5,000 square feet and modern yet cosy touches throughout,” writes the TV personality in his host’s statement.
