You can eat all the junk and watch all the rubbish you want during your very own stay at the Home Alone house! Airbnb is renting out the Home Alone house for a night filled with pranks and antics this holiday season.
In this very house, we saw a young Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) outsmart the thugs Harry (Joe Pesci) and Marv (Daniel Stern) after his family left for Paris without him.
Starting on December 12, guests will be able to stay in the house for one night. The home is located in Winnetka, Illinois, and looks very similar to how it did in the 1990 holiday film.
The home is decked out in Christmas decor and still has the lawn jockey statue standing outside. You can eat mac and cheese in the candle-lit dining room. And to stay warm, you can throw on a green velvet robe similar to the one Kevin wore in the movie!
Staying at the McAllister home won’t break the bank – in fact, staying one night costs only $25, but booking will be competitive. The only date being offered is on December 12. Booking starts on December 7, at 1 p.m. central time.
The Home Alone house isn’t the only famous residence to be featured on Airbnb. In November 2021, Airbnb announced that they were renting out a recreation of Carrie Bradshaw’s iconic brownstone apartment from Sex and the City for November 12 and November 13.
The recreated Airbnb was based on Carrie Bradshaw’s Perry Street apartment, which sadly does not exist in real life.
The guests who stayed at this Airbnb were able to experience a brunch in Chelsea, cosmopolitans for a toast, a chance to play dress-up in Carrie Bradshaw’s incredible closet, and a virtual welcome by Sarah Jessica Parker herself!
The Airbnb host is none other than Carrie Bradshaw (or actress Sarah Jessica Parker). The deal with Airbnb was to celebrate the upcoming release of And Just Like That – a 10-episode revival of Sex and the City airing on HBO Max. And Just Like That is set to premiere on December 9, 2021.
