Have you ever wished that you could experience the house from “Home Alone” with all the traps included? Well, now you can.

That’s right, the movie’s house is on Airbnb and available for bookings, per CNN. It’s the same Chicago home where young Macaulay Culkin lived and tormented the two intruders — played by Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern.

  • The house will be available for only one overnight stay on Dec. 12 for a small price of $25.
  • And it looks just like it did in the 1990 movie with the lawn jockey statue standing outside, a candle-lit dining room with a plate of mac and cheese and a glass of milk, and paint cans dangling over the staircase to ward off any burglars.
  • The pet tarantula that scared the two thieves will also be there, per the report.
  • “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,” said the Airbnb description, supposedly written by Buzz McAllister, Kevin’s older brother in the movie and the host.

This one-time stay at the “Home Alone” movie house won’t cost a fortune but it will be hard to get as many fans will try to get in on this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

This experience coincides with the release of a new installment of the series called “Home Sweet Home Alone.” The film, starring Archie Yates from “Jojo Rabbit” released on Nov. 12 is streaming on Disney+.

Bookings will open on Dec. 7 at noon MST.

If you are successful in booking the house, remember that you’re responsible for getting yourself to Chicago. There will also be a security team available during your stay, in case you try to cause any trouble, “ya filthy animal.”
