D.C. Attorney General Shuts Down Bonkers Airbnb Party House

New, 2 comments

Police have been called to this Airbnb party house more than 100 times in a matter of one year, and now, with D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine on the scene, it looks like this Airbnb abode has finally met its end. According to Urban Turf, the Airbnb host, Douglas Jefferies, operated the Dupont Circle single-family home illegally without a proper business license. Jefferies is known as the founder of Results Gym, Adams Morgan yoga studio Stroga, and volunteer organization Mission Results. He offered the 5,700-square-foot home, called "Celebrity House Hunter Mansion," for $1,200 a night with six bedrooms and five bathrooms. Arguably one of the most extravagant Airbnb homes in Washington, D.C., Jefferies' abode is composed of two renovated homes combined by a rooftop pool. Some of the most eyebrow-raising highlights include a 25-foot waterfall in the foyer, two koi ponds, an outdoor shower off the family room, a six-camera security system, and a British telephone booth elevator. For now, Jefferies won't be able to rent out his Dupont Circle mansion until he gets the proper license, thanks to Racine filing suit with him. The home will be inspected, and Jefferies will also have to pay $8,000 in fines.
