Book the original house from ‘Home Alone’ on Airbnb now

The McCallister family are going on holidays again and this time they’re taking Kevin. To celebrate the milestone Airbnb is letting fellow mischief makers book a night stay in the original Home Alone house.

Big brother Buzz McCallister is hosting the Airbnb stay to partner the release of Home Sweet Home Alone. You can watch the new holiday film on Disney+.

“We’re playing by my little bro’s rules,” the listing reads. So prepare to eat junk food, set some booby traps and sample some aftershave and scream into a mirror. Just stay out of Buzz’s room, okay?

The Chicago home houses four guests – yes quite curious considering the McCallisters are a family of seven.

A member of the McCallister security team will give you a tour, arrange all your meals and gift you Home Alone LEGO set to take home.

During your stay you will enjoy all the ’90s favourites your heart desires – we’re talking Chicago’s finest pizza and microwaveable Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. Absolutely chef’s kiss.

Curl up and watch the film franchise’s newest release in a cosy holiday setting with twinkling lights and a perfectly-trimmed Christmas tree.

And the best part – a meet and greet with a real-life tarantula. This one won’t attack you we promise.
