I am here seeking help from other hosts. The condo above me is being illegally rented out through Airbnb and this is according to the condo association bylaws. Tenants have been told by the property manager that she has been contacted to cease however, she has continues to rent. She claims they are all her friends coming to visit. But her listing is plain as day on Airbnb and I have seen the printed receipts myself. I have contacted Airbnb twice now. Next will be legal action but I don’t feel it is my responsibility to have to pay for a lawyer!
I am a single female who lives alone. Last night at 1230 A.M. I had a stranger with a flashlight shining it in my windows and doors WHILE I had guests! When my guest confronted him, he was polite enough however, it does not negate the fact that it was 1230 a.m. and clearly this scared me to death! In addition, each one bedroom condo gets one vehicle space. MY guest explained about the parking when asked by the renter. She does not have it posted on her site that you cannot have more than one vehicle. Additional vehicles are to be parked ON THE STREET but you will be subject to a ticket should the police see it parked without a parking permit. Last night, however, they apparently insisted on parking TWO vehicles in one spot (part of which was MY PAID FOR spot where my car was already parked). This morning I woke up to go to work to see the second car HIT my car and left it as is. Still parked there, still “attached” to MY car.
Every single renter knocks on my door looking for the “Airbnb rental” and it is all hours of the night! I am continually dealing with loud music, parties and parking issues. A few weeks ago, I had my front door open (screen door in place) and a woman walked past and stood there staring in my door looking inside!
So what do I do?
