Airbnb host catches guests on CCTV: ‘This is how not to rent an Airbnb’

An Airbnb host was forced to evict her tenants after she discovered they were running a “holistic club” – complete with spoilers.

In a video shared on TikTok, Jessica White said she checked CCTV outside her Airbnb after receiving a noise notification.

“I had to wear my PJ out to kick them out…this is how NOT to rent an Airbnb,” she wrote in the video’s caption.

She posted several follow-up videos, including one showing the party being broken up and another of the damage caused by people in Airbnb.

Ms. White, whose biography describes her as a “property manager/cleaning owner”, says Daily dot: “After glancing at the camera and realizing that this party was a huge burden and completely out of control (with over 20 cars and about 100 people), I had to decide to kick them out, which is not something I want to do and I really try to avoid it at all costs.

“From the moment I realized I needed to act to the time I got there was about two hours, maybe two and a half hours. There are certain protocols to follow. Since it is private property, the police cannot legally deport them; I had to be there to tell them to leave our property.”

The original video has been viewed more than 13.5 million times.

Although Ms White did not disclose the cost of the damage, she confirmed it was “pretty much” and added: “This is a premium rental for high-end guests to stay.

“They were asked to take out all the trash and wash all the dishes and clean everything up. So leaving all of this behind is a big deal.”

She shared one more TikTok video showing a list of check-out requirements that guests must be aware of when booking, plus general rules – banning parties.

Opinions are mixed on the video, with some suggesting that Airbnb guests did nothing wrong.

One user wrote that since they have security they should be allowed to stay: “Seems like a pretty quiet party.”

Another described hiring security guards as the behavior of a “five-star guest”.

“As long as it’s spotless [they’re] done I don’t see any problem,” read another comment.

However, others support Ms. White. One viewer said: “People don’t realize that there are rules for renting and having neighbors, it’s not their home. [and] Owner must pay for repairs and damages.

independence Have reached out to Airbnb for comment.

According to Airbnb’s Community Disruption Policy, disruptive gatherings are prohibited, regardless of size, and the company states that “reducing the number of unauthorized parties in Airbnb properties has long been a priority.”
