The following images were documented by real people who booked with just normal expectations, but the product fell far below even sub-par standards. Take a look at some real shady short-term rentals that we’d all best be warned to stay away from down below.

We stayed at the Airbnb for a few months, and I used this to heat the bathroom. I didn’t know if I would get electrocuted or barbecued. It did heat the bathroom pretty well, but it took up so much power in the apartment that you couldn’t run anything else simultaneously, or it would trip the breaker.

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.
