4 Fans Will Have the Chance to Stay Overnight at the ‘Home Alone’ House for $25 Thanks to Airbnb
All right, Home Alone fans—listen up! Even if you’ve only seen the 1990s classic holiday film once, you’d probably recognize the McAllister family home where the main family lives. The Chicago-based abode is likely one of the most gorgeous homes to ever grace your television set. Not only is it enormous, but the intricate details and classic interior and exterior are to die for.
The home is still standing and looking more amazing than ever. And thanks to Airbnb, four lucky Home Alone fans will have the chance to have an overnight stay at the exact home that was featured in the film!
That’s right—the one that Buzz kept his tarantula, that the family ad their pizza nights, that the burglars invaded Kevin (played by Macaulay Culkin) when he was left alone—that house! Take a look at some of the amazing photos of the home as it looks today here.
But wait—there’s more. Not only will you get to sleep at the house for one night, but you’ll get to experience life as if you were one of the McAllisters. There will be a perfectly trimmed Christmas tree (Kevin’s favorite), some classic 90s fare, like mac and cheese (another one of Kevin’s favorites), photos of the whole cast, and even some booby traps. Additionally, Airbnb will donate the proceeds to La Rabida Children’s Hospital in Chicago.
Best of all: Your host for the evening will be Buzz McAllister himself (played by actor Devin Rattay in the film). But don’t worry: He won’t be that semi-snotty-nosed older brother he played in the film, he promises.
“You may not remember me as particularly accommodating, but I’ve grown up, and I’d be happy to share my family home—my pizza, even—with you this holiday season,” a statement attributed to Buzz reads. “Just try not to let my tarantula, Axl, loose this time.”
The overnight stay will be for up to four guests and take place on December 12. The price is just $25 plus Airbnb fees. All you have to do to enter is ) starting December 7 at 2:00 p.m. ET, send a booking request via Airbnb here.
