Chloe was on vacation with her boyfriend and his family.

They stayed in a four bedroom, 2.5 bathroom private home that cost $170 a night.

Photos from the listing show a modern, well furnished home with exposed brick walls, a beautiful kitchen with wine fridge and a wonderful view of the backyard near the dining table.

But once Chloe and her group arrived, they realized what those lavish touches really were.

Chloe introduced her space in two TikTok videos: “Things in my Mexican Airbnb that don’t actually make sense.

She then films this beautiful backyard view that seemed to show a lush outdoor space with lots of flowers.

In fact, it’s contact paper stuck to a wall, and there’s no courtyard or window at all.

Next, the wine fridge: also contact paper.

Chloe proves it and opens the door to reveal pipes and an electrical outlet hidden behind.

Even the beautiful spiral staircase was plastered with contact paper, as was a marble statue, pebbles on the floor, and the brick pillars.

Chloe shows close-ups of other artificial “windows” with beautiful views, which were also just strips of contact paper taped to the walls.

When they arrived, they found most of the luxe touches were just contact paper, including the

The wall art was also made from contact paper, and more contact paper covered furniture and even the trash can to make it look more luxurious.

Even the stairs were covered with a wood pattern contact paper.

Chloe’s videos have gone viral, with the first already garnering over half a million viewers.

But she says she wasn’t really disappointed that so much of the house was fake.

The more they searched, the more contact paper they found, including the spiral staircase

“I loved this house,” she said. “Not boring and a bit like a treasure hunt.”

She told The Sun: “None of us were upset at all, it actually made the trip that much better.

“It was super fun to find out what other contact paper was in the house. Almost every corner had something covered with contact paper.

“Surprisingly, I didn’t even record everything! There was other artwork covered, other bins, walls. It was EVERYWHERE!”

She enjoyed her stay so much that she even recommends the place to others.

“Much more interesting than a modern ‘aesthetic’ look!” she said.

She also clarified that the Airbnb listing actually says there’s no garden, “but it’s still really funny as far as everything else goes.”

“I’m very grateful to my boyfriend’s parents for bringing me with them!” she added.

Airbnb host Jaime Alfredo also told the US Sun that the listing clearly states there is no garden.

He added that the house would be boring without the artwork on the wall.
