My grammar reference book says that I can't use preposition "to" with adverb "home":

I'm tired. Let's go home now.

not

I'm tired. Let's go to home now.

But what if I want to specify whose home it is? Should I also drop "to" then?

In short, should it be

You know what?! I have an idea. Let's go to your home now.

or rather

You know what?! I have an idea. Let's go your home now.

?

The confusion is because in some cases, the word home is not a noun, but an adverb! Do you use an article with an adverb? Say- I am a here? Nope! It's I am here. Likewise, I am home.

Let's discuss some cases...

If it's others' home, you include prepositions to, at.

Let's go to your home
Where's Sara? ~ She's at her home

Interestingly, you drop everything while indicating someone's home!

Where are you? I'm at Sara's!

If it's about your presence and if it is your home, you drop 'at'

I'm home
I'll go home
I'll be back home tomorrow

If you are using a pronoun 'my,' you add to.

Let's go to my home

If it's not about your presence and the matter is different, you use at/in

I forgot my keys at home
