A mysterious woman who hawked dilapidated vans as adventurous Airbnbs has been kicked to the curb.
The Airbnb host known as “Nancy,” has been deleted from the company’s online listings after cops last week seized seven vans authorities said had been used for at least two years as cut-rate Airbnb rentals.
“We do not tolerate this behavior, and Airbnb prohibits stays to be listed on public lands. Both the Host and listings in question have been banned from the Airbnb platform,” an Airbnb spokesman said.
The spokesman did not give specifics about “Nancy,” or address how the company issued her a verified checkmark, which is required to use Airbnb as a host or a guest in the U.S.
In a series of since-removed posts on the app, the vans were touted as a funky way for tourists to take a bite out of the Big Apple on the cheap for under $100 a night.
An observant traffic enforcement agent noticed something off about the vehicles — five of which were parked in the East Village — whose registration and N.J. plates were long expired, some going as far back as 2000, sources said.
One dissatisfied customer made a YouTube video out of his”awful” Aug. 4 stay, saying he was initially seduced by the “Nancy” ad, which offered him the #VanLife experience for just $97.
