What does the overnight stay at the Home Alone house include?

According to Airbnb, renters will enjoy an evening inside the McCallister house just as you remember it -- filled with Christmas decorations, booby traps, a candlelit dinner of highly nutritious microwavable macaroni and cheese, Kevin's dad's after shave, 90s junk food, "Chicago's finest pizza" and more.

Kevin's older brother, Buzz will be your host for the evening. He won't be accompanied by his girlfriend, but he will have his pet tarantula with him.

Head's up on the house rules: No pets, no smoking, no infants allowed.

The stay can accommodate up to four guests with two bedrooms and 1.5 baths. While some bathroom essentials will be provided, just make sure the toothbrush you bring is approved by the American Dental Association.

Local COVID-19 guidelines will apply (Illinois is currently under an indoor mask mandate), and guests are responsible for their own travel to and from Chicago.

Airbnb says its closely monitoring Chicago infection rates and government policies, and will offer booking guests a $1,000 USD Airbnb travel credit if it becomes necessary to cancel the stay.
