ISLE OF PALMS, SC (AP) — The owner of an island home off South Carolina’s coast is suing Airbnb.

Scott Shaw says the company only reimbursed him for “a fraction” of damages he says recent guests caused to his Isle of Palms home.

In a federal lawsuit, Shaw says they broke furniture, left holes in the wall and left walls and bedding covered with and smelling of vomit, marijuana and cigarettes.

A representative of Airbnb says the company is looking into the allegations.
