Rent Your Rental for Events

Eventup, a new start-up similar to Airbnb, helps people find that perfect space to host a party. Founder and CEO Tony Adam says the service benefits both property owners and venue seekers. People can rent out second homes that would otherwise sit vacant, while party hosts can find a less-dreary alternative to the hotel ballroom or convention center. 

John's favorite was the "Magical Villa," which boasts hand-painted murals and a 90 inch screen in the entertainment room. All for just $10,000 a night. If your allotted budget isn't quite as high, Kirstie Alley's "flagship store" will only set you back $500 a night.

The concept raises new issues concerning what types of activities are allowed in short term rental homes.
