The real Home Alone house is available to rent on Airbnb with Kevin’s older brother Buzz McCallister as the ‘host’.

The Home Alone house featured in the 1990 Christmas movie is in Winnetka, Illinois, the United States.

The Airbnb description reads: “You may not remember me as particularly accommodating, but I’ve grown up, and I’d be happy to share my family home – my pizza, even – with you this holiday season.

“Just try not to let my tarantula, Axl, loose this time.

“We may all be older and wiser now, but we’re never too old for holiday hijinks.

“So, this year, spend the holidays not-so-home-alone at my parents’ house.

“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?”

The iconic house is located at 671 Lincoln Avenue in Winnetka.

That is only 30 minutes away from Chicago, Illinois.

Travellers who want to spend their holidays in the Home Alone house can fly to Chicago O’Hare International Airport from London Heathrow.

Although the film was set in the city of Chicago, producers chose this stunning mansion which at that time was owned by John and Cynthia Abendshien.

According to Fancypantshomes, the property was built in the 1920s and sold in 2012 for $1.5million (£1.1million). 

However, its value is estimated to be around $2million (£1.5million).

According to Airbnb, the stay will begin with guests walking into the “cosy holiday scene with twinkling lights and a perfectly trimmed tree in celebration of the season”.

Travellers can “let their inner eight-year-olds run free for the evening without the interruption of pesky intruders”.

There will be “booby traps galore” and fans can recreate the scene Kevin McCallister applies his father’s aftershave with “ample opportunity to scream into the mirror”.

Meeting the real-life tarantula can also be arranged during the stay.

The Home Alone house is available for a one-night stay on December 12 for $25 (£19).

Bookings open on December 7.
