US President Donald Trump's childhood home in New York can now be rent through Airbnb, the online housing rental service, but not many people seem to be interested in staying in it.

The Airbnb listing plays the nostalgia card, saying, "In 1946, Donald Trump was born to Fred and Mary Trump, and brought home to Jamaica Estates."

"Here they lived, in a home built by Fred himself," the description goes on.

"Not much has been changed since the Trumps lived here, the kitchen is original and the opulent furnishings represent the style and affluence in which the Trumps would have lived," the listing says, pointing out the all too obvious selling-point of the rent -- a unique and special opportunity to stay in the home of a sitting president.

The host is an Airbnb verified one, but he did not give out any personal information. So it is not immediately known whether the home was placed on the website by the property owner or a leaseholder.

The Tudor-style home at 85-15 Wareham Place in Queens can accommodate 20 guests in its five bedrooms, with one king bed, seven bunk beds, two sofa beds, and two cribs.

The place can only be rented as a whole at 725 US dollars a night or 13,296 dollars per month. It does not have any reviews yet and only 14 travelers have saved the place. Currently, the place is available for the rest of the year.

Paramount Realty USA auctioned the house to an unidentified buyer in March for more than two million dollars, according to previous reports.

The house first hit the market in July of last year for 1.65 million dollars when its owners, Isaac and Claudia Kestenberg, decided to list it amidst their divorce.
