A home on a quiet street in Dunedin’s North East Valley was allegedly turned into a brothel by Airbnb guests while the owner was away on holiday.

The homeowner, who wished to remain anonymous, said two Chinese nationals, one in her 40s and one in her 20s, stayed in his property for two weeks while he was in Asia between July and August, the Otago Daily Times reports.

When the homeowner returned, he described the property as feeling “icky” and having “stank of cheap perfumes”. He added that 50 toilet rolls and several towels were also missing.
