Airbnb Listing Removed After Neighbors Claim Guests Had Sex In Public


An Airbnb listing was taken down after neighbors claimed guests were having sex in public view.

According to NBC4, the ad titled "Hollywood Hills Camping Retreat" charged $35 a night to stay in a tent and observe the beautiful views just outside the home of actress Dita de Leon, which is just a short walk from the Hollywood sign.

What de Leon didn't mention is the tents were not located in a secluded campsite; they were in a dirt lot situated within the upscale community.

Numerous neighbors complained the guests treated the area as if it was closed off from the nearby mansions.

The guests were allegedly seen smoking, drinking and having sex by several residents and their children.

Sanjeeb Kumar told NBC4,

Others pointed out the cigarette usage violated a "No Smoking" sign in front of the lot.

One neighbor said,

Airbnb removed the ad last week.

De Leon, however, says her security cameras didn't record any of the alleged activity so her neighbors could be lying.

She said,

The neighbors have since gotten the city to investigate the campsite for zoning violations.

But it appears due to a lack of evidence, the angry residents are flying drones over de Leon's property to solidify their allegations.

On July 4, de Leon posted pictures on Facebook showing two drones hovering around the home and wrote her Airbnb account had been deactivated.

From the post,

The city told NBC4 last Thursday its investigation is in its "preliminary" phase.
