There's as much to do inside as there is out in the city.

New sights and experiences are what bring us to new cities, but a new Airbnb listing available in Lisbon might be just as much of a draw.

The room, which video game programmer Andre Farinha designed in an apartment he purchased earlier this year, is essentially a Nintendo paradise. The walls feature scenes from Super Mario Bros. and the original Donkey Kong, it’s equipped with a Wii U with more than 20 games and two Nintendo 3DS handhelds. (He already had some of the games and purchased others.) The Nintendo room can host up to two people, and there’s even Mario and Luigi costumes for them.

Once you venture out into the rest of the apartment, which has two other rooms available to rent including a Star Wars-themed one that’s just as intricately detailed. There’s even a Super Mario Bros.-themed half-bathroom that’ll surely inspire its fair share of pipe and poop jokes.

It won’t even cost you many of Mario’s coins to rent. It’s $39 a night on Airbnb—and according to the listing, it’s within walking distance to subways and other places of interest to those staying in town.

Farinha told Yahoo that he spent almost €10,000 (approximately $11,157.50) to renovate the room, which he wanted to be “crammed with all of my favorite gadgets.” He’s now getting requests from around the world to rent the room.

“People thought I was a little crazy at first but it’s really paying off now,” he said.
