Tutankhamun’s Tomb Listed on Airbnb: “Quaint, Cozy, and Definitely Not Cursed”

Forget 5-Star Hotels! Pharaoh’s Tomb Now Your Spookiest Airbnb Option

Move over, trendy lofts and beachfront villas – ancient Egyptian burial chambers are the hottest new trend in the vacation rental market. Forget room service, Tutankhamun’s tomb promises an eternal stay and a side of potential curses for those seeking a truly unforgettable experience.

The listing, which appeared on Airbnb with surprisingly few verification checks, describes the property as:

  • “Cozy studio with timeless decor (Think: gold, hieroglyphics, the works!)”
  • “Conveniently located in the Valley of the Kings, perfect for history buffs and amateur archeologists.”
  • “Extremely quiet neighbors, guaranteed no disturbances.”

Potential renters are cautioned that amenities are on the ‘historical’ side. “No Wi-Fi, spotty cell reception, but hey, who needs distractions when you’re sharing a space with a legendary pharaoh?” the listing notes cheekily.

While some might be hesitant about the whole “possibly haunted by vengeful spirits” thing, the Airbnb host assures guests that’s just outdated superstition. “Honestly, after a few thousand years, you just want some company,” the host, listed only as ‘High Priest of Amun-Ra’ states. “Plus, think of the bragging rights!”

Early reviews are a mixed bag:

  • “The sarcophagus was surprisingly comfy. 4/5 stars, lost a star due to lingering mummy dust.” – Amanda B, weekend adventurer.
  • “Cool vibe, but woke up in the middle of the night with strange hieroglyphs scrawled on my arm. Maybe avoid the tap water?” – Jeff L, probably cursed.
  • “Unmatched historical authenticity, but I swear those canopic jars blinked at me. Not sure I’d stay again.” – Sarah P, discerning traveler.

Despite the risk of supernatural encounters, bookings are flooding in. Thrill-seekers and influencers looking for that ultimate spooky selfie are clamoring for a chance to slumber in the pharaoh’s chamber.

However, Egyptologists are horrified. “This turns a sacred site into a commercial gimmick,” exclaims Dr. Anya Rao, a noted expert on ancient Egypt. “It’s disrespectful to the dead and fuels a false narrative of curses and mysticism.” Archaeologists warn of unleashing untold misfortunes, but Airbnb is betting on the allure of ‘dark tourism’ being far more powerful.

As the debate rages, one thing is certain: Tutankhamun’s eternal slumber is officially over. Instead of mourners and offerings, his tomb will now be filled with the clicking of cameras, glowing phone screens, and the occasional shriek from a tourist who swears a 3000-year-old mummy just winked at them.
