Homeowner’s $50k Airbnb nightmare

A Perth homeowner who leased their house on Airbnb is facing a damage bill of up to $50,000 after it was trashed in an out-of-control party on the weekend.

West Australian Police are now looking for a group of people involved in Saturday night's wild party.

Officers were called to the property in Cannington, in Perth's southern suburbs, about 11.30pm on Saturday after neighbours reported the sound of glass smashing.

Police said about 30 people were found at the property, which had all its windows smashed, walls damaged and doors ripped off.

The contents of the home, including furniture and electronics, had been "embedded" into walls, pushed through windows and strewn across the lawn, police said.
