AirBnB as a Party Location

Airbnb host shocked after ‘hundreds of drug-taking ravers’ trash £2.5m London apartment

What a shockingly good idea.

Kensington (tick), nice pad (tick), no need to tidy up (tick), no worries about the carpet or furnishings (tick).

The pad appears to have been removed from Airbnb's listings, but similar houses in the immediate area are available for £395 per night.

I looked into owning a holiday flat in the UK to have a base to repeat use when visting friends and family, and renting it out when we were not there via AirBNB.  The numbers just do not add up - all you need is one in 50 bookings to go wrong with a trashing, and you are set back financially by a large amount (plus the inconvenience).

 

I can see AirBNB being an option if you live next door and can keep an eye on it, but otherwise it's a fools errand now people have worked out the party angle.
