Rich kid renters accused of debauchery

 Yet another Airbnb horror story is playing out in Montauk, where renters  terrorized neighbors with massive parties and outdoor sex.

When John Templeman, a lawyer, rented out his four-bedroom home on South Federal Street on Airbnb for $1,600 a night while he was out of the country he had no idea what was in store.

Templeman rented out his home to an entrepreneur and his brother, and two Wall Street guys, who in turn threw loud parties, infuriating locals, according to the New York Post.

One neighbor, Theresa Eurell, was so livid that she started a Facebook page called Montauk Rental Madness to document the bad behavior. Eurell said that after the parties the property was littered with red plastic cups and cigarettes. Another neighbor claimed she heard a couple having sex outdoors.

Templeman’s lawyer, Timothy Parlatore, told the Post: “This is a really unfortunate situation where he tried to do the right thing by establishing a contract and house rules, and it’s unfortunate that people can’t stick to those contracts and the local laws and causes him problems as a result of it. [Templeman’s] hope is that this never happens again, and if it does his neighbors in the town would communicate directly with him so he has the opportunity to correct it.” [NYP] Christopher Cameron
