A Dutch woman who is trying to sell a spectacularly painted love shack is threatening to paint it white if she does not find a buyer by the end of the month.
Willemijn de Lint purchased the property which consists of a bedroom, bathroom kitchen toilet and a small garden in 2016.
The property looks completely normal from the outside but buyers are in for a surprise when viewing after Willemijn decided to do it up in a “pop art style” for couples that wanted to have a romantic break in her mini “love hotel”.
However, the local council decided they did not like her semi-official business plan, and ordered her to apply for all the correct permits.
Deciding it was too much work, she decided to put the property on the market where it quickly went viral on the real estate agent’s pages of Funda, notching up 250,000 views.
But the graphic designer creator Willemijn said that despite all the interest in her “sin suite” they had still not managed to find a buyer.
She said: “I wanted to create something that was an alternative to all the dull white hotel rooms with grey bed linen.”
It is located in a building on the Gedempte Raamgracht in the Dutch city of Haarlem which is in North Holland.
She added that although no longer rented for love, she had found a lucrative temporary solution involving people turning up for photos.
She told Newsflash: “I am going to leave it until 1st August to find a buyer for everything, and if not I’m going to slowly strip everything out and turn into something more desirable which eventually means white space. I expect it will then soon be sold.”
It comes after a swingers bar and hotel was forced to ban sex when it re-opens as coronavirus lockdown restrictions are lifted.
Xtasia, Swingers and Fetish club in West Bromwich, west Midlands, will welcome socially-distanced guests on July 4.
It is rated as one of the highest-rated places to stay in the area – but must relaunch as a “non-sexual bar and hotel” with attendees told to keep two metres apart.
The adults-only venue usually boasts sex swings, bondage equipment, dungeon and an indoor dogging site, reports BirminghamLive.
The owners say they will assist with the government’s test and trace system, but will be discreet if someone’s play mate is not their partner.
Temperatures will be taken on the door and anyone with a high reading will be turned away.
