Airbnb has said it will act to ban "party houses" in the wake of a deadly Halloween shooting at one of its rentals in California.

In a series of tweets, Airbnb co-founder and CEO Brian Chesky said the San Francisco-based company was stepping up efforts to "combat unauthorised parties and get rid of abusive host and guest conduct".

"We must do better, and we will. This is unacceptable," Mr Chesky tweeted.

Airbnb has always banned unauthorised parties, but it plans to increase enforcement of that policy.

Mr Chesky said Airbnb would expand manual screening of "high risk" reservations flagged by its system. Reservations for one night at a large house, for example, might get extra scrutiny.

The company also plans to crack down on hosts who allow their homes to become long-term nuisances in their neighbourhoods.

The company will remove guests and hosts who fail to comply, Mr Chesky said, adding that Airbnb was also forming a rapid response team dedicated to house parties.

He did not say what the team would do.

The ABC understands the ban will apply to listings in Australia.

Airbnb's move came after five people were shot dead in a Halloween shooting at a party in an Airbnb property in the San Francisco suburb of Orinda.

"What happened on Thursday night in Orinda was horrible. I feel for the families and neighbours impacted by this tragedy. We are working to support them," Mr Chesky said in a tweet.

The woman who rented the home reportedly lied to her Airbnb host, saying she was renting it so her asthmatic family members could escape wildfire smoke.

The owner was suspicious of a one-night rental on Halloween and before agreeing reminded the renter that no parties were allowed.

More than 100 people had gathered when gunfire broke out. No arrests have been made.

House parties have long been an issue for Airbnb, which has more than 6 million listings worldwide.

Earlier this month, riot police were called to a Perth property after more than 200 people descended on an Airbnb rental.

In May last year, neighbours of a luxury beachfront mansion in Adelaide were woken up by an explosion at 5:00am, after 48 hours of partying at a nearby property which was listed for short-term rental on multiple accommodation sites.

And in December 2017, police said youths trashed a Victorian Airbnb property after a party at the home got too big.

Officers who were called to the property were forced to retreat as rocks were thrown at them by partygoers.
