Are you an ardent ‘Home Alone’ fan? If you answered that in the assertive, here’s an opportunity that you simply cannot miss! In giving fans a chance to relive childhood nostalgia, Airbnb is now renting out the McCallister house this holiday season.
The hospitality platform will be listing the iconic home from the 1990 film for one night only. Located in the Chicago area, it will be available to book onwards December 7 for $25. And much to the delight of guests, the home still retains its revered charm.
It is complete with the lawn jockey statue standing outside, a candlelit dining room for eating mac and cheese, paint cans dangling above the staircase, and more. And of course, the pet tarantula that terrified the Wet Bandits can be found on the premises too.
Guests at the house will be welcomed by actor Devin Ratray, who played Kevin McCallister’s older brother Buzz. Describing the property on Instagram, Airbnb wrote, “Celebrate the season McCallister-style, ya filthy animals. For the first time ever, one crew of mischief makers can book a holiday in the timeless house where the Home Alone story began (without the interruption of pesky intruders).”
The Airbnb offer coincides with last month’s release of “Home Sweet Home Alone,” a new installment in the “Home Alone” franchise on Disney+. And what’s more, the marquee will also make a one-time donation to Chicago’s La Rabida Children’s Hospital in honor of the first-ever stay at the McCallister home.”
The lucky guests will be able to stay at the McCallister house on December 12.
