The real-life Home Alone house is now bookable on Airbnb

This holiday season some select fans are set to have their Christmas dreams come true with an overnight stay in the iconic Home Alone house.

While the McCallisters are away on their annual vacation (all of them but the pet tarantula, this time),

Four guests will get the opportunity to relive their favourite scenes from the holiday classic, set their booby traps, embrace their own Kevin Mcallister fantasy, and run free for the evening without any intruders.

Big brother Buzz McCallister will join thousands of Hosts on Airbnb by opening the doors to his family’s Chicago home as the ultimate gift this month. Following the release of Home Sweet Home Alone, the all-new holiday film now streaming on Disney+, this Airbnb stay offers a trip down memory lane and an unforgettable way to celebrate the holidays.

“You may not remember me as particularly accommodating,” says Buzz, “but I’ve grown up, and I’d be happy to share my family home – my pizza, even – with you this holiday season. Just try not to let my tarantula, Axl, loose this time.”

While the opportunity is only open to those who can get to the property in Chicago on December 12 and are lucky enough to snap up the booking for four, it’s sure to be a popular listing.

They will get some unique benefits for staying in the Home Alone Airbnb.

  • A cozy holiday scene with twinkling lights and a perfectly trimmed tree in celebration of the season.
  • Booby traps galore (but don’t worry – you’ll be setting them, not sidestepping them!).
  • Surprisingly searing splashes of aftershave and ample opportunity to scream into the mirror.
  • All the ’90s favorites their hearts desire, including plenty of Chicago’s finest pizza and a candlelit dinner of microwavable Kraft Macaroni & Cheese.
  • A meet and greet with a real-life tarantula.
  • A viewing of the film franchise’s newest holiday adventure, Home Sweet Home Alone.

‘Tis the season of giving, so in honor of the first-ever stay at the McCallister home, Airbnb will make a one-time donation to Chicago’s La Rabida Children’s Hospital, which is dedicated to maintaining and improving the quality of life for each of its patients with complex conditions, disabilities, and chronic illness.
