If you've ever dreamed of eating junk and watching rubbish like Kevin McCallister, this holiday season is your chance to turn it into a reality.

For the first time ever the famed Chicago digs from "Home Alone" will be available for an overnight stay, thanks to Airbnb and a much more ammenable Buzz McCallister.

On Dec. 12, he will host four guests in the family home made famous by the hit holiday film to experience a real-life rendition of the McCallister family Christmas for $25, plus taxes and fees.

"You may not remember me as particularly accommodating," Devin Ratray, who played Kevin's big brother Buzz said in a press release. "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."

The one-night stay will feature a cozy, decked-out home with twinkling lights, a perfectly trimmed tree, plenty of fun booby traps, ‘90s junk food and, of course, Chicago’s finest pizza alongside a candlelit dinner of microwavable Kraft Macaroni &Cheese.

Guests can also expect to relive their favorite scenes from the movie and "let their inner eight year olds run free for the evening without the interruption of pesky intruders," Airbnb said. But, don't worry, there are no parents to banish you to sleep in the attic.

In honor of the seasonal spirit of giving, Airbnb will make a 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.

The listing follows the release of "Home Sweet Home Alone," the new holiday film now streaming on Disney+, which will be available to watch during the stay for an added dose of nostalgia.

Airbnb also stated that they are closely monitoring Chicago infection rates and government policies and will offer booking guests a $1,000 Airbnb travel credit if it becomes necessary to cancel the stay.
