Take a Peek Inside the 'Home Alone' House that You Can Now Book

Enjoy a cozy holiday evening inside the famous movie house decorated with twinkling lights and a perfectly trimmed tree 

It’s that time of the year again, when you would want to curl up in bed and watch your favourite holiday movies. In this Holiday movie list, Home Alone we are sure would feature prominently. So now , you can do more than just watch the movie. The OG house from Home Alone is now available to rent on Airbnb!

Airbnb announced via Insta that they’d be offering up a chance to rent the house for one night only, on December 12th.


Airbnb said, “Celebrate the season McCallister-style, ya filthy animals. For the first time ever, one crew of mischief makers can book a holiday in the timeless house where the Home Alone story began (without the interruption of pesky intruders).

“Big brother Buzz will host an overnight stay in his childhood home while the McCallisters are away for the holidays. “

The company has even roped in Devin Ratray – who starred in the film as Kevin’s older bother Buzz – to host. Airbnb shared photos of the house too and it looks exactly how it did in the movie.  (and The Wet Bandits) remember it. The post on Airbnb’s site is written from Buzz’s perspective, to really lean in to the ~ Christmas magic ~ of it all.

“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.

“It’s a holiday wish come true: a cozy holiday scene with twinkling lights and a perfectly trimmed tree awaits you at the McCallister “castle” (oh, and so does my pet tarantula – mind watching him for me?), now bookable for the very first time.

“This holiday season, we’re playing by my little bro’s rules, so feel free to eat junk food, watch rubbish on TV, borrow my dad’s aftershave and choose your own adventure with a legendary battle plan as a guide. Just stay out of my room, okay?”
