As it turns out, the Grinch has not only opened his heart, but also the doors to his home.

The grumpy main character of Dr. Seuss’ “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” is currently offering his 5,700-square-foot cave as a vacation rental to a few lucky (or unlucky?) visitors. 

His lair — located above Who-ville, which apparently is just outside of Boulder, Utah —features two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen, a study, a music room, a cozy nook for his dog Max, as well as stunning views of the surrounding sandstone landscape. More interestingly, the place is filled with story references, such as the Grinch’s oversized pipe organ and the various furniture made in Dr. Seuss’ unique and colorful visual style.

As with any recluse’s home, the rental is remote. That means you’ll need a car (or a sleigh) to get there. You’ll also have to bring your own food and drinks since there are no restaurants around. There is a kitchen, but it’s only stocked with Grinch food like Who-hash and Who-pudding.

There’s no internet connection either. “I’m a simple Grinch. I read, I play chess, I plan how to ruin Christmas. In other words, I don’t pay for fancy internet or cable,” he wrote.

As for the Grinch himself? You won’t have to worry about sharing a room with him since he’s away on his own vacation, to get away from any holiday cheer.

The listing is now available on vacation rental company Vacasa between Dec. 13 and Dec. 23. A night at the Grinch’s cave only costs $19.57 per night, a reference to the 1957 release of Dr. Seuss’ children’s book. For those who can’t make it, there’s a free 3D tour of the abode too.

Although his heart has grown three sizes, his hosting skills need a bit of work. His final message to his guests reads: “Enjoy your stay or don’t, I don’t care.”
