“We just went into our Airbnb and it is a complete disaster. It is nine o'clock at night,” she said while standing outside in the dark.

“I'm scared, I don't like it. It's haunted,” her daughter Phoenix remarked, to which Tammin replied, “You don't have to be scared. It's not haunted.”

The Aussie actress then shared a series of snaps of the run down house, which appeared to have damaged walls, ripped carpet, smashed glass and a mysterious dark brown liquid in the freezer.

“This has actually never happened to me,” she continued. “Airbnb has been amazing so far, so we will see what we do. But not ideal.”


In a follow-up story, Tammin revealed that she and her family ended up spending the night in a hotel and said she had since. received a full refund.

“What a s**t show,” she said while lying on her bed. “Airbnb refunded everything, which they should’ve, thank goodness.

“I’ve never actually had that experience. I’ve never had to be refunded for a place I’ve stayed because normally everything’s great. But it was a disaster. When you walked in it stunk like black mould.”
