Even though its series finale aired 18 years ago, “Friends” remains a pop culture staple in just about every way possible, including themed board games and Monica Geller’s famed purple apartment, signature yellow peephole frame and all.

In Tampa, Florida, there’s a 1920s era bungalow with room for six people (yes, it’s fate), and it will instantly transport you to the fictional West Village pad where the crew spent so much time together. The two-bedroom, two-bath space infuses elements from Monica’s spacious apartment, Chandler and Joey’s bachelor pad, and Central Perk, with tons of Easter eggs for fans to discover throughout their stay.

The home has plenty of amenities, including in-unit laundry, stocked bathrooms, free parking, and everything that you’ll need in the kitchen to make the perfect English trifle for your pals. It has across-the-board five-star reviews, with guests praising the host, the location, and of course, the nostalgia-heavy decor.

If your travels bring you up north, you won’t want to miss a brand new listing in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, aptly titled The One with the Purple Apartment. This chic heritage building includes all the necessities you’ll need, with space for four guests to come, crash on the couch, and watch as Joey gets killed off on “Days of Our Lives.” This airy, sun-drenched condo includes a loft bedroom, a large rooftop patio, and endless references to the series, including Hugsy (aka Joey’s stuffed penguin), the famous framed photos from both apartments, and so much more.

Both listings are relatively budget-friendly — you can score the Tampa Airbnb for $274 per night and the Victoria condo for just a $175 CAD nightly rate. They’re also equally walkable to each city’s respective offerings, and there’s no denying how much fun you’ll have discovering all the “Friends” references. Honestly, could these Airbnbs be any more perfect?
