Airbnb Nightmare For Palm Springs Property Owner

An Airbnb traveler has stayed in a condo in Palm Springs for more than 30 days and is now exercising his right to squat.

On the last day of his reservation, still unpaid, [property owner] Tschogl says she sent him a text message telling him if he didn't vacate the property, she would have the utilities shut off.

He apparently responded with a threat of his own. "It almost sounded like blackmail. He threatened to sue me, saying his brother was there and got an ulcer to due to the tap water. He said he was legally occupying my domicile and he has rights," Tschogl says.
