Sorry, this stay is now booked and is no longer available.

Many Christmases ago, the McCallisters went to Paris – well, most of us.

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 on Dec. 12.

*This is not a contest. Guests are responsible for their own travel.

The space
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?

After you’ve worked up an appetite, you can feast on all the comfort food your hearts desire, including plenty of Chicago’s finest pizza and a candlelit dinner of microwavable Kraft Macaroni & Cheese.

Then, when you’re ready to wind down, you can enjoy a viewing of the film franchise’s newest holiday adventure, Home Sweet Home Alone, on Disney+.

‘Tis the season of giving, so in honor of the first-ever stay at the McCallister home, Airbnb will make a one-time donation to Chicago’s La Rabida Children’s Hospital, which is dedicated to maintaining and improving the quality of life for each of its patients with complex conditions, disabilities, and chronic illness.

Where you’ll be

Winnetka, Illinois, United States

My childhood home is tucked away on a picturesque street in the suburbs of Chicago – once referred to by some (read: me) as the most boring street in the United States of America. Despite past encounters with crooks and folklore about Old Man Marley, it’s about as friendly as a neighborhood can be.

As the oldest of five, I was a little bit of an instigator back in the day (and perhaps not the most accommodating), generally seeking to torment my kid siblings. But I’ve grown up, and I’d be happy to share my childhood home – my pizza, even – with you this holiday season.
