A woman had her holiday mood ruined when she checked into an Airbnb and found countless rules displayed in the house.
Becky Navarro booked a rental home in Wimberley, Texas, for a weekend vacation last week.
She posted a video to show the house rules displayed in the house, which left viewers joking it was an "Airbnb museum".

"Is there a cap on how many rules can be displayed at Airbnbs?" Becky asked as she gave a house tour.
Starting from the living room, she saw a card hanging on a wooden cupboard, which holds several jute baskets.
The card read: "Antique and fragile. Please do not attempt to open or pull on knobs."
In a bedroom, she found a room divider and a full A4-sized note which read: "Decorative piece only.
"Do not touch or move for any reason. I am 10,000 years old and will break if you look at me the wrong way."
And right above the wooden frame bed, she found another note, warning: "Absolutely no jumping on beds.
"Any breakage of beds will be immediately passed to renters."
There were multiple labels sticking on the shelves marked as "owners use only" — meaning Becky won't be able to use the bronze pots.
She found more notes including a cleaning instruction for a marble top counter.
And a reminder to "be kind and use placemats" on a wooden table because it was from the owner's grandmother.
A "do not touch" label was displayed on two pots of cacti.
The owner even put a sticker by the door handle saying: "Do not turn lever."
Viewers were put off by all the labels and signs, with one saying: "I will just stay in a hotel, thanks."
"I think they are in the wrong business, they are meant to open a museum," another expressed.
A third suggested: "I know where you are, you're staying in the Karen Inn."
Becky said the notes were in every room and every surface she could possibly find.
She added: "The rules displayed all over the house just killed me. It almost felt like it wasn't a vacation with so many rules."
