“Dirty animals” from far and wide can eat junk food and look at clutter in the actual house, just like Macauley Culkin’s character, Kevin McCallister.

A lucky Airbnb renter and three of their friends get the chance to stay at the McCallister family’s famous home for just one night – December 12 – in the lead up to Christmas.

And the lucky one who scores the stay is received at the sprawling Chicago home by actor Devin Ratray, who played Kevin’s older brother, Buzz McCallister, in the original film.

“You may not remember me as particularly accommodating,” writes Buzz, aka Ratray on the Airbnb listing.

“Even though we’re older and wiser now (I even have my own security firm), we’re never too old for holiday fools… and I’d love to share my childhood home—my pizza, even—with you this holiday season. Just try not to let go of my tarantula, Axl, this time.”

The list ends with Ratray saying that the lucky guests can “let their inner eight-year-olds run free in my childhood home.”

Bookings for one night stays for a total of up to four guests will open on December 7 in the US (or December 8 at 6:00 AM AEDT).
