You can now stay in the real-life house from “Home Alone” for the holidays for $25.

Big brother Buzz McCallister, who is “wiser now” and has his “own security firm,” is inviting a “crew of mischief makers” to run free in the Winnetka, Illinois, home while the McCallister family is away on vacation, according to the Airbnb listing.

“All of us, this time,” the listing reads.

For one night only, four guests will have the chance to relive their favorite moments from “Home Alone” and feel like a kid again. While you’ll have the entire home to yourself, you may also be responsible for Buzz’s pet tarantula, so watch your step.

The stay at the McCallister castle also includes:

  • A holiday scene with twinkling lights and a trimmed tree
  • Booby traps for you to set, not step in
  • Splashes of aftershave and mirrors to scream in
  • Chicago pizza and microwavable Kraft Macaroni & Cheese to enjoy by candlelight
  • A viewing of the film franchise’s newest addition, “Home Sweet Home Alone”
  • A LEGO Ideas set to recreate the ‘Home Alone’ house

Booking for the one-night stay, scheduled for Dec. 12, opens at 11 a.m. PST on Dec. 7 for just $25. As part of the first-ever stay at the McCallister home, Airbnb will make a one-time donation to Chicago’s La Rabida Children’s Hospital.

You can request to book this stay, which is not part of a contest, at Airbnb notes it is monitoring Chicago’s COVID-19 infection rates and government policies and will offer booking guests a $1,000 Airbnb travel credit if it becomes necessary to cancel the stay.
