The Staten Island mansion from the iconic 1972 movie The Godfather is up for rent on Airbnb for just $50 a night.

The 6,248-square-foot home, located at 110 Longfellow Avenue, will be available for the month of August in celebration of the film's 50th anniversary.

Up to five guests will have private access to the mansion that was home to Vita Corleone - played by Marlon Brando - and features a saltwater pool, a game room and its own pub.

The posting on Airbnb describes the home as a "charming but expansive" property that has undergone renovations and is completely modernised. The exterior of the English Tudor-style mansion was used in the movie for memorable scenes, including the wedding of Vito's daughter Connie Corleone, who was played by Talia Shire.

Director Francis Ford Coppola had an artificial wall built around the home for filming so that it seemed like a fortified compound in the movie. Boasting five bedrooms and seven bathrooms, the home is "most suitable for two adults and three children".

There are amenities onsite, including a large saltwater pool, a pub in the basement, a games room and a gym. The house, built in 1930, was owned by Edward and Mary Norton for nearly 60 years until they sold it in 2012 for $1.7 million.

Booking opens on Wednesday 27 July at 6pm BST for one party of up to five guests for a 30-night stay from August 1 to 31 for $1,500 (£1,250) - working out at $50 (£41) per night.
