Looks like someone can eat junk food and watch rubbish in the actual “Home Alone” house just like Kevin McCallister did in the holiday classic film.
Just in time for Christmas, one lucky Airbnb renter will have the chance to stay at the famed McCallister family home for the very first time, located in the suburbs of Chicago in Winnetka, Illinois and hosted by Kevin’s older brother, Buzz McCallister.
“Though we’re older and wiser now (I’ve even got my own security firm), we’re never too old for holiday hijinks. So while we’re away on vacation (all of us, this time), I’m inviting one crew of mischief makers to let their inner eight-year-olds run free in my childhood home on Dec. 12,” Buzz, played by Devin D. Ratray, writes.
Booking for the one night stay will open on Dec. 7 at 2 p.m. EST.
Most recently, Ratray played the role of the robber in “Home Sweet Home Alone,” the Disney+ reboot of the original 1990 classic holiday flick.
Guests will be responsible for their own travel.
“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,” the listing states. “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+.”
Buzz will even provide a member of his security team.
The Airbnb special is in promotion to raise funds for 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.”
Some notable items from the movie include the bed set comforter seen in the film, a paint bucket hung from the ceiling that Kevin used to take out the bandits, and the bronze statue that was hit by “Little Nero’s” pizza delivery car.
The price of the one-night stay will be revealed when booking opens.
The home was last sold for $1.585 million in 2012.
