Don’t just watch Home Alone this Christmas – stay in the home instead.

This holiday season, four fans of the major festive franchise can rent the McCallisters original home for a night.

Even more exciting, Buzz McCallister will host those staying at the Chicago home, following the release of Home Sweet Home Alone, a new holiday film now streaming on Disney+.

‘You may not remember me as particularly accommodating,’ said Buzz, ‘but I’ve grown up, and I’d be happy to share my family home – my pizza, even – with you this holiday season.

‘Just try not to let my tarantula, Axl, loose this time.’

The one-night stay will take place on December 12 for the low cost of $25.

During their stay, guests will enjoy a cosy holiday scene with twinkling lights and a huge tree in celebration of the season, Chicago pizza, microwavable Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, and 90s music to play.

They’ll also get the chance to set off booby traps and play with aftershave to react that classic moment, meet a real-life tarantula, watch the new Home Sweet Home film, and go away with a LEGO Home Alone set.

It’s quite the experience – with organisers anticipating many applicants making a go for it.

‘We may all be older and wiser now, but we’re never too old for holiday hijinks,’ Buzz said. ‘So this year, spend the holidays not-so-home-alone at my parents’ house.’

As it’s the season of giving, Airbnb will make a donation to Chicago’s La Rabida Children’s Hospital, which is helps improve the quality of life for each of its patients.

Those hoping to book can request the property from December 7, at 1pm CT.

Airbnb is monitoring Chicago covid infection rates and government policies, so will offer booking guests a $1,000 Airbnb travel credit if it becomes necessary to cancel the stay.
