December has officially begun and it’s that time of the year again. Yes, you got that right, we’re talking about hot cocoa, warm blankets, fuzzy stalkings, and of course Christmas movie marathons. And talking about Christmas movies, there is one we can’t seem to ever forget — the Home Alone series. And if you’ve always dreamed of staying in the McCallister home to experience the festival and the madness that comes with it in its truest sense, this year you have a chance.
Fans can now book an overnight stay in the original Home Alone house while the McCallisters are away on their annual trip. This season four guests will get a chance to live their dream via Airbnb. Guests can book the house and relive the classic holiday movie without the pesky intruders of course.
The property, located in Chicago, will be hosted by the elder brother Buzz McCallister. The move has been made following the release of Home Sweet home Alone this season. “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,” he added.
And if that’s not enough to convince you, then there’s a few more more things that you can enjoy, such as a cosy holiday scene with twinkling lights and a perfectly trimmed tree in celebration of the season, booby traps galore (but don’t worry – you’ll be setting them, not sidestepping them), all the ‘90s favourites their hearts desire, including plenty of Chicago’s finest pizza and a candlelit dinner of microwavable Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, a meet and greet with a real-life tarantula, a viewing of the film franchise’s newest holiday adventure, Home Sweet Home Alone and a LEGO Ideas Home Alone set to take and build at home.
Buzz will host a one night stay for four guests at the McCallister house on December 12 for only $25 (excluding tax and fees). In honour of the first-ever stay at the McCallister home, Airbnb will also make a one time donation to Chicago’s La Rabida Children’s Hospital. Bookings for the same can be requested beginning Tuesday, December 7 at 1pm CT at airbnb.com/homealone.
