Comedian Kevin Hart Curates a Little Residence for Booking.com

Kevin Hart’s one of 2018’s highest-paid celebrities in America, raking in $57 million, according to Forbes. The comedian lives in a mansion in an “opulent gated community” in Tarzana, California. But now, has turned his attention to much tinier houses.

Hart teamed up with Booking.com to create a 268-square-foot custom tiny home in the middle of Manhattan in Herald Square. Booking for the tiny New York City house was opened on Thursday, September 27 at 12 p.m. EST, for one lucky person to stay overnight. The guest stayed in the home also received a pair of tickets to Hart’s sold-out Irresponsible Tour that evening at Madison Square Garden.

After the guests left, the house was moved to its permanent location in Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania, to join Tiny Estates, the world’s largest community of tiny homes, where travelers can book a stay in Hart’s tiny home in that location.

“I spend a lot of my time traveling across the world for work and often get tired of staying in hotels day in and day out,” said Hart about curating the unique accommodations for the booking site.
