Later that evening:
She’s renting anyway. Guess we’ll be contacting the city tomorrow.
She’s a defiant little non-resident.

From the City of Pacifica:
“Her permit is revoked and the City received confirmation of letter delivery. Now we need to see if she complies or if additional action by the City is necessary.”

Got this email meant for the homeowner next door:
This time I contacted you because your neighbor contacted us on February 3 and introduced us to your listing "Mountaintop Real Estate-Ocean View / Hot Tub / 13 Minute SFO". Here's what your neighbors gave us: "Last night's Super Bowl party listing increased from 9 to 10. 30 guests pissed at our hotel" Before continuing, we want to ask you more about This information. If you would like to provide us with information or details about the matter, please reply to this message. If you do not receive a response within 36 hours, we may take action based on the information described in the report above.

For us who were born here and our parents born in the Bay Area, we can't buy homes & instead live next to apartments where renters are even doing this. Ban Airbnb in the Bay Area!!

Am well aware of many Air BnBs in Pacifica, and the numbers are going especially in the Pedro Point area. It is a huge business and the City of Pcifica is making money from this through taxes on each night booked at these houses. Not sure what can be done except asking the City Council as has already been mentioned. All of the Air BnB houses have a maximum number of people allowed to stay based upon the number of beds. But no controls or checks are made at these houses as to how many people actually stay in the house. This may be disputed but am sure the owners or property managers don’t go to their house(s) and do a physical count. So yes, this can develop into a noise problem with late-night parties anytime during the week or weekends. Pacifica is a beautiful city and a highly desirable place to visit and enjoy our beaches. But it comes with a price, which many people will pay and the locals will have to deal with the fallout unless our city addresses this issues and/or change local laws.

I think the Airbnb rules and regulations should be enforced. People buy homes so they can make a small fortune on short-term rentals rather than helping our community by renting out their house to a family. We're losing our community. Pretty sad! All in the name of the almighty dollar.

You have ample grounds for damages due to physical and emotional distress, if not more negative impacts from the AirBnB owner/practice. Perhaps a letter to the website owner and the property owner will suffice. There may not be specific laws yet regulating this type of rental practice, but that doesn't mean laws and regulation are not coming to control this Wild West lowbrow business practice.
Losing sleep due to the above is the worst.

Heard from Vaterlaus this morning -- she read only the link, she said, not the entire email: “Now I understand why you sent the listing. Clearly this house is an issue and the owner just recently purchased it. Let me contact someone later today to see what repercussions we have. It is good that you have documented it well.”
============================================Heard from Martin and Bier, too. Vaterlaus said I needed to be nicer if I wanted help. I'm not very nice these days. I'm 60 years old, a home builder and owner for 30 years, work full time, and I'm not sleeping more than four hours a night. I'd have to disclose the situation were I to sell. Yet none of us were consulted about the new "hotel" next door, Am I liable if the guests wander onto our property and hurt themselves? She's not there to supervise and not there at 2 in the morning. But sorry for being cranky about it.

My sympathies. If it were me, I'd be a nightmare to whomever rented that house and to whom. It would be my mission -- with glee and abandon.
