BEWARE: AirBnB Boutique Rooms’ Owner Peeks, Steals From Tenant
What are you going to do when you suddenly lost a lot of important belongings right inside your own rented AirBnB hotel room?
This is what happened with a woman name Danni Georgina. Good thing the hotel personnel were cooperative enough to unveil the turn of event that lead to the missing of their things through the help of the hotel’s CCTV cameras. Read on through the entire story below and get ready to be amazed… and weirded out.
Here’s a complete transcript of how it went:
Oh my god !!!!!!!! F—-g weirdo!!!! !!!!!! So we’re staying at an Airbnb in Manila and the guy who owns the room owns all 18 rooms on this floor. We had 2 rooms opposite eachother , left our bags & suitcases in one room and stayed in the other.
Today we get up, around 12, and the Airbnb host had messaged me on whatsapp at 8:40AM (remember this time!!) asking “hey is everything all good?”. We go to the other room to get our stuff & money but the door is locked… even tho we left it unlocked.
So I was messaged the guy for ages with no reply. Then, we finally managed to break into the room
We go in our room and realise our money had been stolen from inside Mats wallet which was inside his bag. Luckily we didn’t have too much, & Nothing else was gone.
Finally the dude replies & comes to speak to us. He tells us this bullshit story that apparently this morning, at 8:40, he saw the room with our bags in “wide open” so he ‘locked it for us’!! (Hence texting me). He said that maybe the wind opened it even tho all our windows was shut, and he said maybe one of the builders or painters opened the door and stole our money, even tho this is a private floor so no one would have any reason to be here.
Just wait cos this gets really f—–g weird…
We don’t believe his crap cos he seems like a weirdo so we ask the reception to see the CCTV.
Finally after 2 hours they let us watch the CCTV and oh my god!!!!
turns out that all the peep holes in the door are removable from the outside… and we see him take it out & look in our room whilst we was sleeping!!! This happens on like 4 different occasions from 9:30 am – 10:30 am. Way after he sent the text! You can clearly see the bed from the peep hole and I was fully naked. He was staring through the hole for so long!! We couldn’t see clearly cos the camera is in a weird angle but fuck knows he could have been taking photos and shit as he told us he’s a “photographer” before.
Once he was sure we were asleep, he takes the peep hole out of the other door with our bags in, to make sure no one is in there. Then he opens our door and spends about 3 minutes inside. He comes out, locks it and walks away whilst putting something into his pockets.
He proceeds to take the peep hole out of 2 other doors that have guests asleep in, staring inside like a fukin creep. So clearly when he text me at 8:40 was to make sure I was asleep before coming! But he said he did this AFTER he saw the “door open” which is a total lie. Ps just want to mention that he’s stuffed the peep holes on all the rooms from the INSIDE with toilet paper, meaning no guests can see out. Only HE can see in when he removes it.
Now he’s busted and I’ve sent him messages saying we watched everything he did and he’s not replying!!!
I’m sooo creeped out right now and absolutely disgusted. No idea what to do!! Help

Surprised after losing their items and having able to find out what was really going on, she decided to bust the owner out of the big revelation. By surprise, the owner responded this:
Clearly, he wasn’t going to admit it just yet, so the tenant tried to ask some more questions:
An obvious invasion of privacy. A clear violation of AirBnb terms for exclusive rooms.

UPDATE!!! We got a full refund & the money he stole back!!! Plus some more lol. He was hiding from us but we found him and he was so guilty!! His excuse still remained “we look in the hole for guests that don’t check out at time” except he claims he looked in the hole at 9:30… and check out isn’t until 12. Getting out of here now!!!
