If you’ve ever wanted to scream at the bathroom mirror like Kevin McCallister, you may finally be able to make your dream come true. Rental platform Airbnb is taking advantage of the release of “Home Sweet Home Alone” on Disney+, the remake of the cult movie from the 1990s, by putting the legendary home in the original up for rent.

What’s in it for you? A one-night stay for four people on Dec. 12, at the price of $25 (over P1,260), “plus taxes and fees.” Be aware that it’s up for offer on a first-come, first-serve basis. The platform specifies that this exclusive offer for a one-night stay is not a contest. Fans have to act fast to be able to snatch up this stay, which will be available for booking from Tuesday, Dec. 7 from 1 p.m. Central time. Travelers will still have to take care of their travel to and from Chicago, where the house of “Home Alone” is located.


Pizza and tarantula

The offer also includes activities related to the Chris Columbus comedy hit. The lucky travelers will be able to enjoy the following: “a cozy holiday scene with twinkling lights and a perfectly trimmed tree”; “the opportunity to relive their favorite scenes from the holiday classic” setting; “booby traps galore” and adopting Kevin’s beauty routine, with the chance 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 screening of the franchise’s latest installment “Home Sweet Home Alone”; “a meet and greet with a real-life tarantula”; and “a LEGO Ideas Home Alone set to take build at home.” An Airbnb member will be on hand to provide a tour of the property.


To get a chance at the package, fans need to head to the reservation page for the house, located in the Winnetka suburb of Chicago, United States.

What about the pandemic?

With the new wave of COVID-19 cases, the platform reassures potential guests about safety measures and their “enhanced cleaning process.” The staff present on site will have to wear a mask and practice social distancing. Regarding travelers, they will have to wear a mask upon arrival, departure, and during activities with staff.

In the event that the health situation requires the stay to be canceled, the rental platform has pledged to offer a $1,000 (over P50,400) travel credit.

Airbnb also announced a donation for La Rabida Children’s Hospital, located on the south side of Chicago, caring for children with chronic illnesses and other disabilities. The amount of said donation was not disclosed, despite requests by ETX Daily Up. SM/JB
