Pack your bags: Insecure star Issa Rae wants to give you a taste of the West Coast from her vantage point. 

If you're not quite ready to part ways with her California-based dramedy—one of the most fashionable TV shows that's equal parts stylish, emotional and relatable—allow this much-anticipated Airbnb experience to be your final celebration of Insecure

“Since my series debuted in 2016, it’s been an honor to showcase the people, culture and businesses that make South LA such a vibrant part of the city,” the actress said in a statement.



How to stay at 'Insecure' star Issa Rae's Airbnb:

Now, you can live out your Insecure dreams as if Issa, Molly and Lawrence are right beside you. From February 12 to 14, 2022, two guests will be able to cash in on "Welcome to South LA" (opens in new tab) for $56 per night. Not only will they get full reign of a chic, modern Los Angeles pad, but they'll get a virtual check-in with the actress herself and access to all-things Insecure.

Rae continued: “I became an Airbnb Host to create a stay where fans of the show can experience this for themselves. From dinner by Worldwide Tacos on game day, to art from my favorite local artists on the walls—this is LA, my way.”

If you ask us, this is one of the best travel experiences to have in 2022. (Plus, COVID-19 safety features will be in place, which you can learn all about via Airbnb (opens in new tab).)
