This holiday season, movie buffs are getting a chance to stay overnight at the original house from the 1990 Christmas movie Home Alone. 

Airbnb announced Wednesday (Dec. 1) that four fans are getting the chance to stay at the Chicago-based home this December, with Kevin McCallister’s older brother Buzz (played by Devin Ratray in the franchise) serving as the host. 

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

The McAllister home, which contains four bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms, boasts of a “holiday wish come true” for many kids and kids at heart.

It comes complete with twinkling lights, a perfectly trimmed tree, “booby traps galore,” a ’90s-themed assortment of food, the opportunity to spend quality time with a tarantula, and everything you’d need to unleash your inner eight-year-old.

Guests can feast on all the comfort food they want, including plenty of Chicago’s finest pizza and a candlelit dinner of microwavable Kraft Macaroni & Cheese.

Staycation guests can also enjoy watching the film franchise’s newest holiday adventure, Home Sweet Home Alone, currently streaming on Disney Plus.

Lucky guests will also be gifted with a LEGO Ideas Home Alone set that they can take and build at home, according to the listing.

In honor of the first-ever stay at the McCallister home, Airbnb has announced a one-time donation to the La Rabida Children’s Hospital in Chicago.

Take note that the stay in the Home Alone house on Airbnb is not a contest and guests will be responsible for their own travel to and from Chicago, Illinois.

The overnight stay listed as "A Home Sweet Home Alone Holiday" is currently priced at only $25 or just P1,259/night. Filthy animals can get ready to book their stays when it officially opens on Dec. 7, 2021.
