A New Zealand family that booked an Airbnb in Ireland recently discovered an undisclosed camera in the living room, and the family says that Airbnb initially cleared the host of any wrongdoing before finally banning the offender from its platform.

Serdar personally examined the other stand-up tanning booths and can confirm there were no other cameras in those units.
