(Scroll down for video) A couple’s vacation in Florida, turned into a nightmare when they found a hidden camera, which recorded their every move, in the master bedroom.

Derek Starnes and his wife from Indiana, rented the condo at 623 Cedars Court in Longboat Key, through Airbnb.

During their stay, Starnes, who works in the hi-tech industry, noticed what he thought was a hidden camera in the smoke detector above their bed.

He removed the smoke detector and was horrified to find a camera along with a microphone inside it.

The couple immediately called the police. Officers found a second smoke detector that also had a camera hidden inside.

Officers seized computers, SD cards and other electronic devices that stores data. They will review them to find out how many people were victimized.

Starnes said that he chose to rent this condo because it had more the 40 good reviews.

Police arrested the homeowner, 56-year-old Wayne Natt, who had been renting out his home through Airbnb for two years.

Natt was charged with video voyeurism. When he was questioned, Natt told police that he place the cameras to record sex parties, which he hosted at his home.

Natt claimed that all of the participants knew that they were being recorded.
