You Can Stay at the House from “Home Alone,” Thanks to Airbnb

The holiday season is officially underway—and what better way to celebrate than by booking a stay at *the* house from Home Alone? For just $25, one lucky family will get to spend a night at the Chicago dwelling made famous by the iconic film, courtesy of Airbnb.

Naturally, the home’s interiors look just as they did when the McCallisters lived here, complete with booby traps set in place by Kevin himself (including an actual tarantula!), as well as his favorite foods, like microwavable Kraft macaroni and cheese and “Chicago’s finest pizza.”

The one-night stay will take place on Sunday, December 12th and can accommodate a family of four (each of whom will be gifted a LEGO set of the Home Alone house). The once-in-a-lifetime opportunity comes just a few weeks after the release of Home Sweet Home Alone on Disney+ (featuring a special appearance from Buzz!), which guests will have a chance to watch.

“You may not remember me as particularly accommodating,” said Buzz in a statement, “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.”
