An Airbnb is giving wannabe witches and wizards the opportunity to experience the magic of their own Quidditch World Cup – all from the comfort of North Carolina.
For $394 a night, those feeling a little magical can stay in a replica of the tent that was featured in the fourth film of the beloved franchise released in 2005, Harry Potter And The Goblet of Fire.
In the film, the ordinary-looking tents were bewitched to be much larger on the inside – with the space of a small house, which included beds, chairs, tables and a kitchen.
Although the Muggle versions don’t quite have the same magical interiors, the property, Alchemy, embodies the essence of the magic in Harry Potter.

The magical tent is one of seven themed-homes that make up the Earth and Sky Dwellings.
In the property’s listing, the hosts explained they took the definition of Alchemy seriously – and literally – when designing the magical tents.
‘”Alchemy” is defined as “the process of taking something ordinary and turning it into something extraordinary, sometimes in a way that cannot be explained,”‘ the listing on Airbnb read.
‘As you drive up to our structure, all you see awaiting you is a small tent, but pull back the tent flaps and the magic begins.’
Once at the tent, guests are instructed to enter though the small doorway where they’ll come face-to-face with a 12-foot spiral slide that will ‘carry you down to the essence of Alchemy.’
‘Coming off your exhilarating slide journey, you will be greeted by majestic mountain views and an amazing interior filled with secrets waiting to be discovered!’ the listing continued.
Only a ‘short walk’ from the Alchemy tent is another, Enchantment, which reportedly boasts the ‘best sitting area ever.’
‘Our firepit will provide hours of nighttime conversation while enjoying smores,’ Airbnb hosts Caroline and Mike enthused.
