The housing crisis in the South Bay is still in full swing.
A man in the Monta Loma neighborhood of Mountain View is renting out a Coleman tent in a “beautiful garden” outside his home for visitors or slightly more permanent residences for the high price of $46 per night; an amount that adds up to roughly $965 per month.
The poster, who goes by “John” on the San Francisco-based rental site, also offers up a shower once per day for renters and the privilege of eating indoors.
Though it may seem far-fetched, John confirms the validity of the listing.
Airbnb is no stranger to controversy in the Bay Area. The company has been criticized for straining the already distressed rental market in the area, with many saying that the city needs to do more to regulate the service. Airbnb continues to claim adherence to a “shared-economy” objective.
The company also has a page dedicated solely to tent rentals in California.
