You Can Now Rent Out the “Home Alone” House
“Home Alone” is one of the most iconic holiday movies of all time. From Kevin McCallister’s famous one-liners to the doozy criminal duo who made Kevin’s time alone all the more exciting, it’s a Christmas classic that never gets old. And McCallister megafans will be thrilled to know that they can celebrate the holidays with an overnight stay at the original “Home Alone” house.
Hosted by Kevin’s big brother Buzz, the infamous residence based in Chicago is opening its doors for one night only (Dec. 12) on Airbnb, allowing one lucky family to end their year with a McCallister Christmas.
During the stay, up to four guests will get free rein of the Georgian-Colonial style home, decorated with twinkling lights and a Christmas tree with all the trimmings. There will be a viewing of the film franchise’s newest holiday adventure “Home Sweet Home Alone“, classic junk food including a cheese pizza and Kraft macaroni and cheese, booby traps for mischief and mayhem, and a meet-and-greet with a real-life tarantula (if that’s your thing, it certainly isn’t mine).
Wondering how much it’ll cost? For just $25 (before fees and taxes), this deal will have you saying, “Keep the change, ya filthy animal!”
As it’s the season of giving back, Airbnb will be making 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.
So if you fancy letting your inner 8-year-old child run free this festive season — without the risk of intrusion from the Wet Bandits — bookings for the “Home Alone” house will open on Tuesday, Dec. 7 at 1 p.m. CT on the Airbnb listing.
