After recreating Sarah Jessica Parker’s iconic Sex & the City brownstone (and closet!) last month for New Yorkers to stay in, Airbnb is back with another once-in-a-lifetime takeover — though you’ll have to travel out to the Chicago suburbs.
The same exact house from the holiday classic Home Alone, the home of the lovely McCallister family, will be open to a few lucky visitors for a one-night stay on Sunday, December 12!
The house is hosted by “Buzz,” Kevin’s older brother, and has lots of hilarious movie references packed into the Airbnb description. Ironically, he now “owns” a home security firm! Here’s what it says:
This holiday season, we’re playing by my little bro’s rules, so feel free to eat junk food, watch rubbish on TV, borrow my dad’s aftershave and choose your own adventure with a legendary battle plan as a guide. Just stay out of my room, okay? After you’ve worked up an appetite, you can feast on all the comfort food your hearts desire, including plenty of Chicago’s finest pizza and a candlelit dinner of microwavable Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. Then, when you’re ready to wind down, you can enjoy a viewing of the film franchise’s newest holiday adventure, Home Sweet Home Alone, on Disney+.
get ready to celebrate the holidays on the most boring street in the united states of america… because the timeless house where the home alone story began is officially bookable on airbnb. 🎄

Some other fun inclusions? A member of the “McCallister Security team” will show you around, arranging meals and gifting you with a LEGO Ideas Home Alone set to take and build at home. And there are even booby traps you can set yourself!
Airbnb will also make 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.
It will be available to book starting Tuesday, December 7 at 1 p.m. CT/2 p.m. ET. It will cost $25…so you can keep the change. It is not a contest — it will just depend on who is able to book it fastest! So mark your calendars.
Also, since it isn’t a contest, you will have to provide your own way out to Chicago!
