Suburban Boston Airbnb site shut down by City of Quincy

Jump to last reply

The city of Quincy, MA. has posted a violation notice on a Bayside Road home because the owners did not have an occupancy permit for hotel use. The house, which sleeps six, is rented to guests on Airbnb for $150 a night.

The city says the neighborhood is not zoned for business and fined the homeowners $1500 for operating a transient lodge in a residential area.

The city responded to complaints from neighbors who are protesting outside, even calling police to make the couple stop taking in guests. Protesters are concerned about safety and other businesses popping up out of homes. “You can’t have people coming and going, like a hotel,” says one. “They’re breaking the law.”

The owners, who will appeal, are subject to additional fines of up to $1000 per day. The violation order apparently banned the current renters from continuing to occupy the premises.
