“You may not remember me as particularly accommodating,” says 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.”

What You Will Get at the Home Alone House

Buzz will host a one-night stay* for up to four guests at the McCallister residence on Dec. 12 for only $25**.

During their stay, guests will enjoy the following perks:

  • A cozy holiday scene with twinkling lights and a perfectly Christmas trimmed tree in celebration of the season.
  • Booby traps galore (but don’t worry – you’ll be setting them, not sidestepping them!).
  • Surprisingly searing splashes of aftershave and ample opportunity to scream into the mirror.
  • All the ‘90s favorites 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.
  • A LEGO Ideas Home Alone set to take and build at home.

“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.”

‘Tis the season of giving, so in honor of the first-ever stay at the McCallister home, Airbnb will make a one-time donation to Chicago’s La Rabida Children’s Hospital. The institution is dedicated to maintaining and improving the quality of life for each of its patients with complex conditions, disabilities, and chronic illnesses. It’s all for a good cause.
