The iconic Home Alone house will be available to rent on Airbnb for just $25 (£19).

Up to four fans of the '90s festive favourite can book a night at the McCallisters' Chicago home for a one-night stay on December 12. 

Guests will be welcomed by Buzz McCallister, played by actor Devin Ratrayin, big brother to Kevin, famously portrayed by Macaulay Culkin in the films.

The house will be decked out for Christmas and guests will have the opportunity to recreate scenes from the movie, including laying booby traps, as Kevin did in the film to fend off intruders (although Airbnb reassure people they will not have to do the same).

Guests will also be treated "Chicago's finest pizza and a meet and greet with a real-life tarantula," according to Airbnb.

In a post on Instagram, Airbnb wrote: "Celebrate the season McCallister-style, ya filthy animals. For the first time ever, one crew of mischief makers can book a holiday in the timeless house where the Home Alone story began (without the interruption of pesky intruders)," .

The McCallisters' home is being opened to guests following the release of Home Sweet Home Alone. Airbnb will make a one-time donation to Chicago’s La Rabida Children’s Hospital.

Requests to book the stay open on Tuesday, December 7.
