Lockdown blurers throw £ 2million buffer at illegal 60-person Airbnb party on one of UK’s richest streets
LOCKDOWN busting yobs ransacked a house on one of Britain’s most expensive streets during an illegal 60-person Airbnb party.
Cops were called to the £ 2million pad after neighbors complained about the noise and loud music coming from the property.
The four bedroom house is located on Sandbanks near Poole in Dorset, known as Beverley Hills in Britain.
The cops said they found around 60 people at the party and eventually managed to rid them by bus at 4.30am.
The shocked home owner, who asked not to be named, had rented his luxury mattress for two nights earlier this month for £ 1,400 from a couple based in Reading, Berks.
He told The Sun: “This couple has completely cheated on me. It’s my livelihood and with the foreclosure, as you can imagine, I barely had any reservations.”
Under current legislation, overnight stays are not allowed except for business purposes and the owner believed the couple were hiring him for business purposes.
But instead, “they used it as a place for a party.”
The owner said: “I am absolutely mortified and had to explain to the neighbors what happened, but luckily they were very understanding.
“The people who hired him have completely sewn me up and are the dregs of the company. They sprayed champagne on the walls and the place was messy. “
It took contractors to repair the damage, redecorate and repair broken appliances, fixtures and furniture.
Owner said: “It cost me a bundle to fix and I’m not sure if I will rent it again.
“The first thing I knew was when I woke up in the middle of the night and saw 15 missed calls. I called and it was the police who told me what was going on. I rushed over there and saw about 60 people there and the place was a mess.
“The police had to organize a bus to take them all away and I spent the first few hours tidying up the place. The police were really good and made it clear that I was not responsible or that I had done something wrong.
In 2018, Tailor Made real estate agents boasted that the road the house was on was “the most expensive coastal part on the planet in terms of price per square foot.”
And homeowners in the area include Harry Redknapp.
After the chaos, cops said: ‘Officers located more than 60 people at the rally, believed to have traveled from the London and Hertfordshire areas.
“The officers encouraged them to leave the address. The group was dispersed from the area around 4.30am. “
Police revealed that no fines were imposed at the time due to the number of people.
But they added: ‘Following an investigation into the Covid-19 violation, officers imposed two fines of £ 800 on the party’s organizers. “
Airbnb said it has “zero tolerance for this type of behavior” and suspended the guest from the platform.
In a statement, the company said: “Parties are banned on Airbnb and with blocks in place across the UK we have restricted stays only in limited circumstances as per government guidelines.
“We will take action against anyone who violates our strict policies and we will stand ready to assist the police.”
