A SANDBANKS home owned by a millionaire businessman has become an Airbnb ‘party house’, according to neighbours.

The four-bed property at Salter Road – which is believed to be worth more than £1.3m – is offered for let to groups of up to 16 for £750 a night.

‘Raucous’ hens and stags are among those who are said to have stayed in the house, which has been available on Airbnb for some four months now.

John Paterson and his wife Jennie, who live in a semi-detached house nearby, said party houses are an increasing issue in Sandbanks.

Some residents have complained of revellers partying in hot tubs and on balconies until 2am. There is often noise when clubbers return from Bournemouth’s nightspots “at dawn”, it is said.

The property in Salter Road is owned by Maximillian De Kment, a former professional rugby player and chief executive of estate agents Saxe Coburg and Lovett International.

When the Echo contacted Mr Kment, he said he would not comment. However, the Daily Echo has confirmed with the Land Registry that the property is owned by the businessman.

Mr Paterson said: “Airbnb advertises the semi-detached property in Salter Road as able to accommodate 16-plus people.

“A house that can accommodate 16-plus people isn’t a house, it’s a hotel.

“The noise from the parties has been very disruptive – several times we have given up and gone to stay with friends. We feel we are being driven out.”

Mr and Mrs Paterson have contacted Airbnb, and say the company has received several complaints from residents and is looking into the issue.

The couple say they have been unable to talk to Mr Kment directly. They are seeking help from BCP Council over the issue.

Peter Haikin, regulatory services manager for the council, said officials can take “appropriate enforcement action” against problem properties.

“BCP Council would encourage anyone affected by noise or anti-social behaviour to contact our team on 01202 261700. You can also call the out of hours team on 0800 506050,” he said.

In July, a home in Bournemouth’s exclusive Talbot Woods area was shut by the courts after a series of hen and stag parties were held in the outdoor pool.

The closure at 24 Braidley Road, which was advertised online as The Stag House and The Party House, was lifted by magistrates later.
